Yea I would check alignment. I don't find my to be twitchy at all

I just ordered some camber bolts, so I'll throw those on and take it for an alignment.

I should order some too before my first oil change appointment in June in Winnipeg so I can pick them up at that time.

Did they give you a timeline on how soon you should get it? I don't imagine it would take a long time, must be a common part.

Also might be a stupid question, how many you ordered? I understand its 2 per wheel? Do people usually do camber on all 4 wheels or front is enough?

You only need two bolts, one for each side on the front. You can't change the rear camber with bolts. You need to change the LCAs for the rear.

Not quite true about the rear: https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33415

My BRZ is a base model (Premium? Limited? Can't remember Subaru's stupid naming scheme). Had my door cards off yesterday to do a quick speaker swap and noticed that there's wiring and a blank panel there for a puddle light. Assuming this is something available on the upper trim and if so, looks like I'll have to find one to pop in there...

Unrelated, something I've noticed now that we're getting some "cool" mornings again (by TX standards) the quick flash turn signal issue is back. I don't recall seeing it all Summer but it started happening again last week when the cold front hit.

Has anyone has issues with the 'door-open' chime? As least a few times per week it goes off when I open the door after the ignition is already off. It's really weird, as if I still have the car turned on. If I close the door and reopen it, it goes away.

I have noticed this though I did not consider it an issue.

It happens to me every now and then, but I always figured it was something I was doing, related to some sort of accessory mode, or it mistakenly thinks I left my key in the car.

Same here. I keep thinking it is some combination of conditions that cause it, but it happens randomly and so far isn't annoying enough for me put in the time to actually troubleshoot.

Mic's sensitivity is turned down too low

I think my mic's sensitivity is turned down too low. When I make phone calls in the car they say it is hard to hear me. I opened the dealer settings to look at my mic levels, I have to get really loud for it to register. If I scream as loud as I can, it never gets above 3 bars. Is anyone else having this issue?

Level 1 is at 85 dB.
Level 2 is at 95 dB.
Level 3 is at 98 dB.
Level 3 is at screaming as loud as I could is at 109 dB.
