Hello all my name is Matt, I currently own a 2 year old Nissan Altima (6 speed). I am starting to research Subaru's in order to buy one in the next year or two. I have never owned a Subaru nor have I ever had a 4 wheel drive car. I am currently torn between the WRX and the STI, the big thing that does it for me is the price difference. Is the horse power gain that big that it's worth the price as well as the DCCD? Any benefit to the 5 door vs the 4? Call me crazy for asking this one but this is also my first look into a turbocharged engine. I am reading that oil should be changed around 3,700 miles because of the increased heat as well as wear. Mobile 1 is what I use in all my vehicles and I read that is what a lot of people use in the Subaru's, but what I also read is that you should use the OEM oil filter, anyone have any problems with the K&N ones?
Enough questions, and a little more about myself. I have been into car audio for 8 years and professional car detailing for 10. I have worked for two shops who did some of the worst work I have seen and decided to go out on my own. I am majoring in Network Management in college and will probably join the military after I finish. If anyone has any questions for me please feel free to ask.
