I think it was November for free return shipping. I’m going to do mine soon and get it shipped before then. Gotta figure out return shipping costs for next year to see if it’s worth getting oil from fcp.

Grainger was selling 6 gallons of 0w-20 full synthetic for 46 bucks, but the product page is now blank. Wonder if it will come back.


Costco was also selling 4-pack of Kirland ow-20 full synthetic that worked out to $16 for 5 gallons. But a few months of inflation and its now $20 for 5 gallons.

I had a smoke and stared at it after Thanksgiving lunch. Eagerly anticipating the fixed roof rails to arrive so I can mount my narrow basket and snowboard carriers, as well as my flaps for slope season!

Also listed the stock 2023 wheels and brand new (less than 13km) Continental Tires. 205x55r16 for sale locally.

Thinking of side skirts and lips now. But wouldn't know what to get 😕

Any links to side skirts?

Whelp, had a beautiful Sunday afternoon to be outside and install some new goodies on the Impreza.

Started out with the JDM STI inner door CF look kick guards on all four doors. Waited for SubiSpeed to have these restocked so I didn't have to pay shipping $$$ from Japan. Not a cheap mod but been wanting these for two years now.

Next I installed the DRL always on kit with splitters from SubiSpeed. This was not a challenging mod, just took a bit longer than it should because I pulled the full air box and battery assembly out to get to everything easily. Paying attention to the +/- wiring I was able to avoid some of the pitfalls others have had with blowing fuses upon initial wiring. I put a yellow tint on my DRL's years ago and really wanted those on at night as well. zip tied the wires to neatly tuck them out of the way and keep things neat and tidy.

Added my vintage style Rocker switches I had kicking around in storage from a former jeep switch setup (I don't throw anything away) and ran the wiring for the LED fogs I added. I installed the 2nd switch for future roof rack lights.

Love the snap of an old style Rocker.

Certainly adds a lot of ground cover vs. the stock LED fogs alone. Of course these are only going to be used on lonely highways in suburban areas at night and during increment weather situations.

Upside down was the only way the switch covers were gonna work without cutting a brand new dash. So that's how they were installed.

Had my 12,000 mile tire rotation done, as well as the multi-point inspection at the dealership. Oil change done a few weeks ago. Forgot the bag of door cup protectors on my roof while cleaning out the car and lost it when driving to Walmart.

@BlubaruNoobaru - You may check to see if other models between Ascent, Outback, Legacy, Impreza, Crosstrek have any buttons for that instrument quadrant which could be used in lieu of the aftermarket switches. Would be really nice to see an OEM button operate those lights. The other 3 blanks can be removed and replaced with actual buttons.

I actually prefer these. Unsure why, perhaps my jeeping/overland/offroading roots?

Love the feel of them and their look. They do not interfere with anything and leaves the bottom row open and accessible. I understand the purist perspective and agree about cleanliness with stock style switches. But, I don't imagine on an Impreza, I'm going to want or find a use for more than two switches -if that - and as such these will do. (I also like the feeling of repurposing. Call me sentimental I suppose.

If I do find I need more switches on this blubaru . . I probably should be driving my Wrangler anyhow lol

In case this vehicle needs to be quick flipped (my immediate future is actually really blurry in terms.of logistics) - this would be easiest to revert back to OEM for this vehicle's build sheet
