This will certainly be the first vehicle I've owned that I won't be able to do the spark plugs on myself, and I've owned a Town and Country

Changing the spark plugs on my '02 and '11 wrx did not involve lifting the engine, and was actually pretty easy with some flexhead rachets. I definitely will not be changing the plugs on my BRZ, unless someone comes up with an easier way. That is ridiculous.

Just install some beefier engine and tranny mounts at the same time to make it worth it.

Releasing this for free suggests to me that Subaru is starting to ''get'' how important the tuner/aftermarket community is for a brand. Good on them.

Seems to me that the Front to Rear (curb) weight distribution is 55% to 45%. I did the math and to get the 53% to 47% reported distribution, the driver and gas/stuff in the trunk would have to weigh only 58 kg (128 lbs) at the rear axle. Interestingly, with a driver and gas at 135 kg (300 lbs.) above the rear axle, the weight distribution is 50:50.

Normally when things are stolen they are not posted as front page news for everyone to have, thus I assumed Subaru gave the go ahead. I dont think the owners of this web site want to find themselves paying fines or going to court.
