    Last week we got t-boned by an old lady while driving out 3 month old 2015 Outback. Picking it up from the body shop today. Just had to get a new fender, new wheel, new strut, repaired the front bumper and front door. It makes you sick when you've made 2 car payments and some dipshit hits you like that.

    Yesterday I did the 30k mile maintenance on the WRX. Just an oil change, air filter, tire rotation, and check everything out. I bought a tuning cable for it a few weeks back and I'll probably start playing with in once I hit 36k (new car warranty expires). I may just buy a off the shelf tune from Torqued Performance, with a downpipe their tunes tend to get 300whp, and run safer than the stock tune. Can't really complain for spending $300 on mods.

    Tis the season.

    Saab got rearended last month by an unlicensed lady. The car she was driving was insured, but that insurance company denied coverage. So my insurance is picking up the tab.

    Should be getting a new bumper, lower valence, tail light, trim and whatever else needs to be replaced soon.

    Within that same month, someone backed into the Z and took off. More headaches abound.

    Some good news - I got the Watanabe faces powder coated and have slowly been working on polishing the barrels. Busy work for the winter time.

    Yeah. One of those crappy non-standard companies with strict policies. She wasn't listed as a driver on his insurance, so they were quick to deny. Unfortunate for the driver, since my insurance will sue her for subrogation. Live and learn.

    Due to the local Subaru dealership scratching my car, I got a coupon that paid for:

    A group N Trans mount (stiffer mount than stock), Group N trans cross member bushings (stiffer than stock), stiffer rear shifter bushing, a SPT heat shield for teh turbo, a front cross member brace, and then some stuff for my wife's Outback.

    Then I gave myself an early Christmas present and got a tune sent to me from Torqued Performance. Need to do some logging and send it back to them to have it revised, but this tune has consistently given people 265hp and 280tq to the wheels, which aint shabby for an $85 tune (stock is usually around the 225-230whp mark). Gets about 18lbs of boost and hauls ass pretty well. Maybe after I get to my next assignment later on next year I'll grab a downpipe and retune, should put me right at 290-300whp.
