Very nice, but just to be pedantic it is a MY15, the MY14 was the older shape which Subaru UK didn't import.(Last UK cars of that spec where MY13 I believe)

Thanks for clearing that up don.

2014 white wrx sti will be an easier title for this thread.

So i'm coming up to 5000 miles and the car hasn't missed a beat.

Very very happy with it, although i had to remove the mudflaps as they just made the car look untidy and were scraping coming on and off my other half's driveway
Also had to remove the wind deflectors, my god they reduce visibility at islands in the dark



Also considering loosing the front splitter too, it's just not doing it for me

Anyway i'm due an oil change in the next few weeks so may give the millers nano-drive a try ?..... ?

I'd keep the front splitter, to be honest I think that's all they need, don't like the side skirt or rear lip extensions you can also get. The front splitter just helps with its profile

Agreed on flaps also, they ruin the look of the car and I hate wind deflectors with a passion lol

So all in all I love it they way you have it now!

I always run Miller's nano 10w50 in my 08 hatch but it uses no oil, if it used oil I'd switch to likes of Total quartz racing 10w50 which I ran for years in my old hawk sti that had a fairly thirsty oil appetite but Total oil isn't that expensive to be continually topping up with, Millers is!

Funnily enough I took all my mud flaps off this weekend too as I kept driving over them when reversing into my drive. Was becoming really annoying as they just hang too low. They never really offended me, just got fed up with them being in the way all the time.

I think we all agree...... Flapless

Fuchs Titan is what has served me well but Iíve heard good things about the millers nano.

I donít suppose there is a lot in it, Iím probably not going to benefit much from fuchs to millers, although I have read that the millers has a superior cold start protection.
My car being a daily too

You're not going to notice any difference between the 2 oils realistically. So long as you're not running used chip fat in the engine you'll be fine. As an expert once told me, the only bad oil is no oil.

I don’t think there is much between the top end oils, as long as it’s changed regularly then you should be ok.

I’ve noticed that place you got your super sexy exhaust from are putting together some performance packages

That's interesting to know. The owner has a 2015+ STI too and he's developed a few bits for it already. He also does EcuTek Racerom remaps at very reasonable prices.
