Interesting about the oil change, because I have just had the 12,500 Km dealer service done and I thought I was imagining that the engine seemed to be smoother

" Yes, it's the same on all newer subies, not sure about old school. Very bad positioning. I just cut the cable tie & moved it a little, didn't bother with a bracket for it."
That is a big bit of cable with a lot of copper. I will feel safer with a intermediate support for a free unsupported run that long.
I suspect you are right about the diff itself but I will make up a guard that also protects the exhaust run under the suspension crush point.

The original Aluminium plate I started making for the engine had a hole to access the sump plug. The distance up from the plate meant that it was gonna be protected from a hit. The Subextreme one would too, but it's too close to the support bolts to retain strength so it's back to removeing the plate to change oil ( stuff it!!!)

I have done a lot of work on the forester over the last 2 weeks however today was trying to fit my entire life into one car. Forester is now all packed and ready for its 4000km journey across the country. Just slightly overloaded, who needs a lift anyway....
In preparation it has had a heap of work done to make it a little less worse for wear...
- New (used) exhaust off a EJ22 liberty
- New 215/75/R15 BFG tyres all round (which despite what most people say actually rub slightly on the front on stock offset rims)
- New tie rods and ball joints
- New massive light bar
- New front shocks
- New front wheel bearings
- New rear trailing arm front bushes
- Wheel alignment
- Full engine service

Now lets all hope it actually makes it without something falling off...
