Hey, I live on the Wet Coast of Canada, where wipers get used a lot, incl ice and snow when up in the mtns in winter. And mine are still good, too. Obviously OEM are good quality.

The OEM wipers are the best I can remember. The Crosstrek replaced a Lexus and it was the worst - screeching wipers and you still couldn't see...

very interested to see a full write up on that.
Would it also be able to handle wireless Android Auto?
I personally use CPLAY2AIR for my wireless CarPlay; but I’m sure if you found a similar module for android auto it would work. I’ll try to detail more specifics in the write-up.

Interesting. Can you possibly explain that?
Your crumple zones won't work right because of the added reinforcement of the bolt. The bolt itself will also be a cause of damage that you would otherwise not have by s. I was looking at doing the same thing last year and found a long discussion on some forum about it, that's my summary.

Changed my oil yesterday. 12,112 miles (2,750mi between changes and 6 months). Pulled a sample from the dipstick to send off to Blackstone to see how the oil is wearing with the whole plug-in hybrid thing. Curious to see if the mileage between changes is better/same/worse given a bunch of miles are in all electric.

Checked my tread depth on the tires and I've lost 2/32" over that same mileage (raised my tire inflation to 38/37 from stock 36/35 over the summer). Tread was deeper in the center vs the shoulders of the tires so I did this to see if the tires would wear more evenly as well as if I could improve fuel economy. It's okay if they waste a bit faster because I'd prefer to swap them out for Falken Wildpeaks hopefully around 30,000mi otherwise it'll be based on age of the tires.

Those lights a really cool. How are they sticking to the car?
They are just magnets! The front is done in highly reflective vinyl. I topped it off with a set of five dollar Santa legs out the tailgate. Parked in front of the clubhouse today for our tree lighting/holiday concert event. Got quite a few smiles.
