Tried again, with the AGM battery not connected to the car, same result (i.e. only 75% charged):

Took some unpaved road on the way home from exploring. my 5 year old OEM tires weren't ready for the rainy and rocky unpaved roads. Can only managed 40 km/hr and i still sense some grip issues. Time to wash the wheels again!

First fill-up since March 10th. Wow! Over 50 days on that tank. Going to throw some Sea Foam in the gas to stabilize.

Technically this was last night, but hey it happens.

Put my Perrin license plate relocation bracket on & a license plate "delete" plate. Prepping for my SSD light bar & lights, since it will block my front plate.

Topped off the air in a leaky tire. Every 3-4 months the warning light comes on. Not often enough to make a big deal over.


Changed the wiper blades. Trico Titan brand. We'll see if they're as good as they claim.

Today Anne and I went for a drive up a local hill: Iron Mountain (not really a mountain - at 1700m more like a hill).


The track is quite rough with much sharp rocks. I only have the OE tires and don't carry a spare so thought it prudent to turn back at the 1400m point. I'll go all the way up when I have better tires.

Well took Subie down the mountain today for her annual check up (24 month 25000km service).
Noticed as I waited around that a Subaru authorised smash repairer was handily located just across the road. Subie is now booked in for a little cosmetic surgery there tomorrow. Also wandered up the road and around the corner to the dealership to check out the XV Hybrid and found the lot filled almost entirely with XVs of every colour and trim level. Quite a change from a year ago when it was largely Ozzies and Fozzies and you could get an XV as long as it was Obsidian Grey. The sales figures could be interesting when released next year. The Forester has been the most popular model here for so long. I wonder if that's about to change? 🐨

It is when its clean :LOL: Thanks
In dire need of a detail now. Have had a lot of rain in Australia at the moment so want to get it clean before I head off on family get away.
Yes. But much nicer than the last few Autumns when everything was bone dry.
Getting mine detailed tomorrow. She's got some scratches on the bonnet from trees in high winds and some down her side from people not taking care when parking alongside. I'd considered buying proper buffing/polishing tools and kit but worried I might stuff it because the dark colour with some scratches deep into the clear coat. Also, YouTube tells me swirl marks are the enemy. Found a lovely company that will touch her up and detail her properly for about the same price. The chap that runs the company loves the XVs and pearl finishes. Where are you headed for the family getaway? 🐨
