Re: New to me, 2003 Baja - Hi!

That silver is really sexy. Just like my Porsche Boxster! Most likely as the rest of the dashboard is the same as an 02 legacy's. Basically the whole interior except the rear seats & center consoles seem interchangeable. I just changed a door on my Baja with an 02 legacy door & it's EXACTLY the same...

Re: Winter driving

I had to drive out to a job site for support on a weekend before plowing. about 1.5 feet of heavy snow. I was a little bit nervous, Baja was sliding and spinning a bit in the heavy snow, however, it did get me there and back. :)

oil for the Scooby boxer engine

So in my Porsche Boxster 6 cylinder boxer I use 5w40 either dino oil or any brand of 5w40 synthetic. Any thoughts about the Subaru boxer engine? I've been inside one that was 180k and the cylinders had no noticeable wear. Not sure what that owner was using. Have there been oil discussions on this fo...

Re: anyone on here who bought a 2006 Baja new?

Well Shucks. Either no new owners on here or the ones who are new owners are up tight. It was easy getting a window sticker for my 99 Porsche Boxster. So if it is now new owners all is forgiven, however, if it is uptights who are unwilling to share, shame on you. I am willing to share everything.

pulling another car out of the snowy bar ditch

I know I should have taken a picture but didn't think of it at the time. I got to pull my friend out of the bar ditch. His right two wheels were sunk in the snow. pulled out with no effort. :)

Re: new JBL stereo speakers

I didn't reinstall the water shed cones behind the new speakers that were attached to the factory speakers. I wonder if that took away from some of the bass that the factory speakers had that the new JBL's don't seem to have?

Re: Speakers.

Might not be balanced just because the speakers are different wattage. As far as the rear not working, it is common that the stock speakers just die. Excellent. Thanks for the details. I did notice that the JBL's are 2 ohm, the front factory are 4 ohm and the rear factory are 8 ohm. I replaced the ...

Re: Speakers.

I installed one of the pair of the JBL GTO628's on the driver's side. Adjusted the radio to test right and left side sound and the factory speaker sounds like twice the speaker in sound and volume as compared to the new JBL? I'm not impressed. Am I missing something? Also, no sound coming from the r...

new JBL stereo speakers

So, I installed the driver's side JBL speaker so far. Did a sound test with the new driver's side and original passenger side. The factory speaker sounds better than the brand new JBL GTO? Also, I noticed when panning to the back. No sound coming out of the back speakers if they even exist. I haven'...

Baja did great in our blizzard today...not quite a good as my old truck, but that was obviously heavier. Baja likes to slide on turns, no biggie, but something I have to get used to...
Mine does that in the snow and ice too with new tires.
