What exhaust is that?

All depends what dealership you go to... Gotta find a "mod friendly" dealer. I took my 08 in for a clutch pedal squeak, while I had my tune, downpipe, etc... Turns out It was a pretty big issue with welds breaking on the firewall causing the squeak... But while they had it in there, they also put a brand new clutch in the car for me at 29,000mi. I was shocked they did the new clutch/flywheel, especially since I had stuff done to my car.. but they were really nice about it

Even without a Miata I feel like I get smarter every time I lurk around here. (race prep section I'm looking at you)

However, everytime I lurk around Subaru forums....
A while back I had to justify why rotella T6 is better than walmart oil. Apparently oil analysis says nothing btw.

The WRX needs its own miataturbo.net

I don't even bother with 3gwrx site or whatever it is. Usually just browse nabisco, though its so large that the knowledge is heavily diluted with stupidity, so you really have to sift through 80% crap to find those gem threads and write ups that will answer questions rather then confuse you more.

For sure. My 08 bought in 11/11 with 26K miles, CPO was $27K. Has 76K miles now. Been a solid car. They did put a water pump in at 27K but hasn't been to the shop other than oil changes in the last 50K miles.

I'm still under warranty until 4/14 or another 24K miles. If I sell it for $18K I take a $9K hit for 50K miles which, while still high, is not that bad considering it's a BMW.

Oh and congrats on the Subaru.
