    Because each time the oil was changed, I just happened to be at my mechanic's place fixing his computers, so he did oil changes to offset the cost of what I was going to charge him.
    The only thing I know about the oil is that it's some kind of premium German blend.

    The 5000-mile oil change interval is pretty rigorous.

    Car is tracked and autocrossed. I deem it necessary.
    During the off-season (winter), I still keep up with the 5k changes because my OCD takes precedance over everything.

    Went to mechanic today and found a few problems that need addressing, first of which is that both front wheel bearings need to be replaced. I find this to be unusual that both need to be replaced after only ~90k miles. Maybe it's normal for some of you, but not for me.

    I also need sway bar links, which is the cause of my clunking issues. Will get all of this addressed after the cooling system refresh.


    Any recommendations for sway bar links? Are there any upgrades that last longer, or are more suitable for track/autocross/daily-driver (with lots of potholes) usage?
