  3. Transmission & AWD
    Recently picked up my first wrx and am finally getting a chance to go over and inspect everything. Car has 34k and had one previous owner. Never been modded.

    I just purchased a WRX and decided to take it to Quick Lube for the first oil change (first time I haven't done it by myself on any car). I got the correct Mobile-1 Filter and asked them what kind of oil they'd be using. They put in 0w-30 Mobile-1. My engine was hot and they drained it after it...
