I will call the dealer, sounds like some folks have gotten warranty coverage when they're less than three years old. If that doesn't work, it's AGM time. Glad I left my OBD11 with a friend in Dallas.
The dealer is now using AGM batteries. At least mine is.

Ha, I don't need a $600 battery for this thing.
Plus if you use the auto start/stop function I'm not sure the Braille would work well. The cars that have start/stop have a much bigger capacity battery.

I had a 1975 2002 the exact same color. They are all rusted out here in the Northeast so I found a rust-free one in Florida and drove it up. The motor was full of Bardahl, though, and was smoking by the time I got home. I replaced it with a new long block, 40DCOE's and a tube header. All that power ended up blowing the transmission, so I replaced that with a rebuilt and the LSD from a Tii. I ended up selling it to start a business. I miss that car.

Last Thursday purchased the Trackslag. It was delivered Monday, I installed it Tuesday.
Shipping was incredibly quick from the UK, fitment is spot on, less drone, more flow and quicker spool all noted immediately. Less NVH I’m attributing to the OEM like flex pipe too. I’m happy.

Great job wrapping it. Also dig the blanket. What brand? Had two rip at the seams on my WRX. ThermalZero was the brand.

I need to pull mine and wrap it…. I’m running the PTP Blanket on my hybrid too, the lava rock stuff is super nice works well and don’t make a mess.

I had the cheap glass stuff on my first DP and it’s turned white after a few cycles and fell apart easy. Looked good at first though 😂
