Hey wassup guys I'm new here also,

From anchorage. I'm awaiting on my subaru 06 sti being ship from NY.
I figured you know learn some stuff before getting on my first sti ever... Always owned integra since then and I decided a subaru will do me better since I move here..so since I'm new any suggestion what I should do when it get here...

Bought of ebay by the way and got it check up before I paid so I'm thinking run it to shop before having fun with to see if anything need touch up what you guys think... Thanks
Nice man , and yes FWD is okay here . RWD was rough , but the AWD is meant for this place . I just got mine not too long ago and want to go by a shop called element tuning and have them do a full checkup . I am about to go on leave but hopefully your subie gets shipped here soon and maybe we can both go over there and check it out .

Nice to see an Alaska thread here! Any recommendations on where to get my 105k service done? I went to Element Auto a couple months back for an estimate for the timing belt, and they quoted me at $800. Haven't tried P3 yet or the dealer, kinda contemplating on doing it myself...

So I haven't had any work done by any of the shops around here yet , but P3 seemed promising , i went there on one of the dyne days they had a few months back and they have some pretty good promotions going on like ordering parts , or maintanence on credit , like paying on it so you don't have to do it all at once .. since I have been here i am so hesitant to get work done because I know prices will be outrageous .

Yeah, there's a guy at my shop who had his motor built by them and he is very happy with it. He said they might be running some specials on servicing right now and that they get free shipping off of rally sport direct if you order through them. I just need call and get a quote from them.

Beautiful sti , most of the meets I have seen are held through this group called ATC which is a multi car group ... as far as only subarus go I haven't really seen anything . If your on FB the group is on there . they usually have meets on fridays around 8-10pm on tikatnu lowes red robin area. small turnouts and then they cruise to another location.

looks pretty clean man , i talked to element today and asked them about and oil change , and transmission fluid change with rear diff and for the oil its 100 and tranny rear diff 150 and they said they would do a full car check free .. Does that sound like a lot for an oil change ? I may take it to the autoshop and do it all myself .

Yes sounds fair to me but for that kind of stuff i would do it on my own, I got mine check up from them also and so far my car looks good, everything is upto date just some minor things that need to chance like my rear endlinks etc but other that they quote me 1200 for all other stuff and I'll just buy the parts do it with my friends I would say, (pm me your ###)))you need to meet some guys I just met since I got mines

Im pretty sure we live in the same housing area.
The more I see them the more I like them , if you don't mind me asking , how much did you pay ?
Ill have to pm you, I got a pretty good deal. I did have a large down payment, sold my 07 STi before purchase.

I don't know when they meet either. I don't go because that's usually the younger category and I don't do a lot of stuff they think is fun. :tup:

I'm younger , but I don't find racing and police fun , spirited driving from time to time yes . Would you be down for meets if we could get some subaru thing going , there are too many of us up here .
