Default Re: Nick's CWP '19 STI

Went to the dealership today for my 1st free oil change (5,300 miles). I had changed the oil on my own at around 1,200 miles with Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30 (got it for $10 with rebate).

Unfortunately, after driving home the car smells like burnt oil. I don't see any leaks, but it just leads me to believe they were probably a bit careless. I plan on checking the oil level in the morning, but this just reminds me why I do all of my own maintenance.

Not sure if I'll take it back for the 2nd free oil change.

Always do your own work. And switch to 5w-40. I use Pennzoil Platinum Euro. It quiets down the valve train noise quite a bit and reduces blow by. Car is much happier with it. Use the OEM blue filters.

Thanks! I look forward to seeing your build thread.

I preferred wingless, but didn't want the sunroof. Maybe I'll do a trunk swap some day.
