Thanks for the advice, my (relatively minor to be honest) consumption issues will hopefully be assuaged this weekend. I should have figured that an oil question would bring people out of the woodwork...

I pretty religiously change at 3500 miles, so conventional VR1 seems like it may be a good try for me. Current 5w30 Valvoline HM makes the motor run like a song with minimal valvetrain noise but...

I'm NW WA, so it's basically +20 deg low end and -15 deg high end temps here. I imagine 0w40, while ok for hot days, would be a bit too thin for startups in the summer? I NEVER start driving until I...

Also, you said that 0w30 would never be needed, as the tolerances aren't tight enough; wouldn't that solely affect cold starts, and even then reach the top of the motor faster? My knowledge (or lack...

Another oil question

I've been searching high and low for the Castrol Syntec 0w30 German oil, only to find that apparently it's not sold in the US anymore. However, I did find 0w40 Castrol oil, made in Germany on the...

Don't know exactly what sort of noise you've got, but if it's a light "clunk-clunk" especially when the left/right side of the cars are at different elevations (bumps and such), check your sway bar...

I've got 245/40/18 and 265/40/18 on I think mid-20 offest Enkei TS09. 18x8.5 and 18x9.5. 265/40/18 is a pretty perfect fit on 9.5, and I bet you could clear at stock height (I've got a good amount...

It's a coupe, so no brace for me. Pretty sure I've narrowed it down to the seat-belt turnaround located above the seat back. Only the passenger side rattles, so more investigating is required as to...

Whenever I feel like my car should be replaced (admittedly small imperfections, as far as bad things go), I'm just going to remember this thread.

How much did you have to put into the car? Looks...

WTB Y-pipe

My Tanabe Y-pipe is developing some terrible leaks due to constant scraping, and I'm looking to go back to a more stock sound anyway. Anyone in the WA Seattle area (or slightly outside) have an OEM...
