    Great. My car is starting to fall apart too. First the fuel rail leak (only when it's really cold though), then today I was under it looking for the source of a new clunking noise, and noticed my driver's side double offset joint is oozing grease all over the tranny housing. And there there's the clunk, which I still haven't found but I suspect it might be related to the recent adjustment I made to the rear sway bar. Most of these issues would be covered under warranty, but I really don't think I want those assclowns anywhere near my car. The last time I took my car to them I got in a huge argument with the service dept manager, had to get the general manager and SOA involved, so I know that I'm on his permanent **** list now.

    i know how you feel. im generally a nice guy, but i get into arguments a lot at subaru dealers. I also had to get a higher-up guy fromSOA on the phone at Subar of Santa Cruz....i dont knwo what to do now cause tog et my money back i will have to haev them fix it, but i dont have confidence in their ability to find out what the problem is, since its probably not in their book of normal problems...

    If you're paying for repairs, don't take it to the dealership. Give DHM a call, I've heard really good things about them and they specialize in Subies. I called them for a quote on my 30k service and they were really friendly, and wanted about half what the dealership quoted me. I ended up doing it myself anyway, but their price was pretty decent.

    yeah, i have been there too and talked with guy. as far as my situation went, the local siskiyou foregin shop i go to suggested i try elsewhere since they dont do too well with diagnosing proiblems after a collision, etc, but they are very friendly there.

    Gauges

    I finished installing my gauges this afternoon, just thought you guys might want to take a look. I'll edit in a few night shots later on this evening.

    How high does that EGT go? It only looks like it goes to 12 in the picture, and that's nowhere near high enough. Funny thing, my stock gauges have yellow needles, and my boost and EGT have red needles. Looks like yours is the opposite, stock gauges have red needles, and boost and EGT have yellow. Stop reverse copying me Troy!

    Edit: Nevermind, just realized that your EGT is probably reading in Celsius. Freaking metric system!

    Guys, was wondering what you thought of the set of wheels being offered for sale in this thread: http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showthread.php?t=116377

    The tires seem a touch small, but I like the fact the wheel are different than anyone else has around here. I orginally wanted Sub Zero's, but it seems a few people here have them, and I kinda want to be original..... Would a 7 inch wide wheel be able to use a 225/45/17 instead of the 215/45/17 these wheels come with?

    They look OK, don't give me wood though. I'm running 225's on a 7" rim right now with no issues. Just read the mfg specs for the tire you want, they should give you a range for rim sizes that will work.

    If you were thinking of putting the Toyos on your wagon you might want to invest in a lift kit because they will rub
