well, I guess the title is still in my wife's name, but I'm gonna be the one fixing stuff on it and asking all the questions on here!
Just bought a 2005 LL Bean Outback yesterday with 118K on the clock. Really happy so far, super clean, fun to drive, etc etc.
My first questions:
I do notice a little whine to the engine, not terrible but I wanted to confirm. Kinda like the whine of a newer motorcycle I guess.
The PO removed the air scoop in the front saying it improved breathing and gave it better power??
is there any truth to this idea?
Lastly, and maybe the most dangerous of all the questions, just how important is the premium gas?
We've already cheaped out without regular once on the way home (before my wife new it was imperative...)
What are the actual damages that may occur? or is it just lower power?
Thanks, looking forward to years of just chatting it up on here with no actual problems
