Thanks for the concern, but my WRX is almost 6 years old and has over 135,000 miles on it. The warranty coverage has long passed. BTW, you might want to consider making an appeal to SOA, in my experience SOA has been quite accommodating.

What does your handle (dirt grazer) mean if you're not driving it hard in the dirt? I find the name rather ironic.
Almost everyone falls under the 3750 service if you read the fine print.

At 135k miles just about everything should have been service by now. So I'd do anything you haven't already done that is serviceable, basically.

The vehicle has been maintained by the book by the Subaru dealer. I was just wondering if there was a value priority to be considered for upgraded parts, should I need to replace the original parts in the future.

Keeping good records and dealer service will add value to certain buyers, but not all.
I just sold a Legacy and had all the records and the buyer didn't even glance at them. It was strange.

Dirtgrazer refers to a nickname givin to me racing sidecar motocross. Ironic is the dealer was trying to sell me a new STI. He admitted that if you drive the car like the poster on the wall directly behind this cool looking rally replica. Your warranty is void.

As juice said, almost everyone falls into the severe service unless you are a little old lady who drives her STi to church on Sunday (and believe it or not I've actually seen this).
As for the poster, and the voiding of warranty, that is the same across the board with any and all manufacturers.
With that said, I've run my LGT wagon at Pocono Raceway and Watkins Glen with no issues

Even that little lady is probably taking lots of short trips, so even she would fall under the tougher schedule!
#50 of 70 10 speakers?
Jul 18, 2008 (7:54 am)
I just got a 08 Impreza Outback Sport. I am going to replace the factory speakers,but i only see 6. I see the 2 tweeters in the front door with the front 2 door speakers and the 2 backdoor speakers. I thought OBS came with a 10 speakers system. Where are the other 4? What am i missing?
