Spent $125 on PDR'n for my door. Ding and Ripples=Gone. Apparently it got hit a bit harder than I thought at first. I like how the Forester IBM color-shifts depending on the ambient light source too.

Converted the front turn signals to double-contact 1157s. Something different.

Baby powder and a hair dryer. Sprinkle the outside of the car in different spots and hit it w/ the dryer, it'll blow it into the point of entry and leave a white trace trail.

Bonus is your mildew/mold will be baby fresh.

@apetron, cool, I know them, they're right across from EuroCollision and GlassPlus, 2 places I trust.

Try the drain hose that goes through the firewall up to the heater core/box. More then likely that is clogged from a spider or something. Dont ask me how I know.
