    Quite frankly,I am not a fan of this mod,mainly because your DRL bulb is also your high beam . Disconnecting the DRL would eliminate your high beam all together. This is not advisable as well as dangerous.

    Changing Oil.The manual states that oil changes are at 7500 miles & all turbo models are to use Subaru synthetic oil.

    If you are interested in analyzing your oil you can go to Blackstone Labs .They will send you an oil collecting kit free of charge.You must then take a sample & send it to them.And for a cost of $ 25.00 you will receive an oil analysis.

    I must have missed the part where it said I had to use crappy Subaru brand synthetic oil.

    Valvoline Synpower FTW!

    You can disable DRLs and keep your high beams (or split them off and run Halos or something else instead for the DRL while keeping the high beam Halogens; it's what I plan to do at some point with Halos, although some prefer to just disable them and have them come on with the parking lights so you can have no lights/stealth if you want; I'd kind of like a separate switch to just turn them off when I want, but have them on the DRL circuit, personally):

    I just follow the manual.What you put in your car is up to you.Do you have a link to a lab analysis of Subaru Synthetic oil?

    And let me get this straight.I can disconnect the DRL bulb,which is also my high beam.And the high beam will still work?Please elaborate.

    The manual says synthetic. It doesn't have to be Subaru brand as long as it meets the specs (and I'd have to find a link to the lab analysis, but I've been told it wasn't exactly a top performer, which is why I'm saying you're better off with Valvoline or Mobil 1 or whatever that is high rated).

    If you click on that link it will elaborate in that thread and includes a picture of the plug you need to disconnect in order to disable the DRLs but keep your high-beams (little silver box/plug near the right side fender).

    Okay,I guess the only way to find out if the DRL DIY will work is to try it out.I'm done removing my front bumper or I would have experimented.If anybody is going to remove their bumper for any reason & decided to try this out please inform us about the results.

    I'm still against doing it due to safety issues.

    I saw the suggestions for a front bumper earlier on page 1 i think it was.. So just checking: Is the 2011 WRX and STI front bumper the same? It looks identical to me.. haha.
