    Motul 300V reduced Water Temp by 10+ degrees!

    Hello all, as part of the new direction I am taking with the WRX, I changed out the oil with 300V last weekend. First observation is that the oil smells sweet like candy. Second observation is that the use of 300V has reduced engine water temp by 10+ degrees. I do not have a read on the...

    TINY oil filter for WRX!

    The oil filters for the WRX are by far, the smallest I have seen. For a turbo 2.5L engine that has a sump of 4.4 qts and a OCI recommendation of 7500 miles, I would expect a larger filter. . . . This just seals the deal for me in my desire to change the oil every 3000 miles. <img...

    2013 WRX - Modding/Tuning

    I have been toying with the idea of having this car has a "fun" car and I have decided to go over the top nutty with it. I am having it tuned (with Cobb) as well as modifying it a bit with intake, exhaust, light weight pulley, and new inter-cooler. As such, warranty is no longer a concern. So...

    WRX going to need new tires!

    I will be fine this summer (hopefully this storm is not to bad on Monday) but come next winter, I'm going to need to buy new tires for the Subaru. It comes with a nice set of summer Dunlops. Not the greatest tire for the northeast. Even with AWD! <img src="http://i.imgur.com/4rsRauv.jpg"...

    Oil Choice for new WRX!

    It's time once again to make a choice on the oil I plan to use. Car is 2013 Subaru WRX 2.5L Turbo. Subaru calls for synthetic 5w30. So that leaves the options PLENTIFUL! Some owners on WRX forums use and stand by Rotella T6. While I know that is a great oil, I want to stick with Subaru's...

    Windshield chip: Should I/can I get this repaired?

    While on the Highway 18 wheeler kicked up a rock on my windshield. It sounded very loud and I expected to see huge crack. However I only found a very small chip. There's no cracks around it and it is smaller than a grain of kosher salt. Is it fine to leave alone, or should I have it epoxied by...

    Don't buy Microsoft Office if you do not need it!

    I still have my Toshiba Laptop that has Office on it, I just hate using it compared to the new Retina MacBook Pro. I have a lot of school and job work to do and buying Microsoft Office for my Mac seemed to be the only thing left to do after my free trial was up. NOT TRUE! PC and Mac users...

    Lets talk about DACs!!!

    So, Listening to music (320kbps) on my iPhone 5 sounds great. However, I plugged my headphones into the new MacBook Pro and listened to the same music (iTunes) and it sounds SO MUCH BETTER! It's like night and day! This got me thinking. . . . If the DAC/AMP in the MacBook is so much better...

    Lacie PORSCHE designed External Hard Drive

    I wanted a 500GB Hard drive for my MacBook just as a "carry around" hub for my stuff. After doing a quick search around, I found this new Lacie. From everything I have read, they make great products and this particular hard drive is highly rated. The price is really fair compared to the other...

    New MacBook Pro with Retina Display

    Just picked up a new 15inch Macbook Pro with Retina display tonight. I wanted a new laptop (going to keep the old Toshiba for a spare) and I made the jump! I am VERY happy with it so far. It is so thin and built like a German sledge hammer! Rock solid! The factory solid state drive (flash)...

    New Motobecane Mountain Bike PHOTOS

    Hello everyone. The new bike is here! I bought it from a large online "direct from manufacturer" site that is liked by consumers and hated by bike shops. I am very pleased with the bike I got and how little I paid for it. I took it to a very highly regarded bike shop and they put it together...

    Favorite car commercials. Post em!

    Over the years, im sure we have seen a car commercial or two that we really liked. What marketing really left an impression on you. You do not have to like the car it's self. Just the Ad! I'll start with a few of mine: I liked these commercials because they played with people. This one came...

    I'm going to try Lubro Moly MOS2!

    My mom has a 2003 (I think that year) Mercury Grand Marquis. She has a 1.5 mile drive to work. So she does two trips a day, never getting the engine anywhere near operating temp. She does put on about 25-30 miles during the weekends but still, not much. So I'm thinking the MOS2 will offer a...
