      Spark plugs changed twice.

      Only issue that has developed is a Turbo Underboost code, which only presents itself when its cold outside (below 35*F) Warmer than that and it boosts normally with no problem. Monitoring the live data from OBDeleven, the requested boost is only few PSI off from the requested boost, and builds slowly. Only in cold weather though. When it's warmer out, it builds boost and holds it at the requested level no problem. This issue only started this winter, when the car reached 200K miles. It's probably the wastegate flapper wearing out on the turbo. I'll continue to run it as is until it gets worse though.
      How is your suspension holding up? I'm at 90k and have cupping on my tires. Some say it's due to worn struts/shocks.

      I'm at 165000km right now on my 2015 ( bought new in March 2016) Highline 1.8 5spd. Neuspeed module, H&R springs since new. I added other mods since.

      I had to change a front bearing at 159000km before making a Québec - Florida - Québec road trip with the wife and kids. Other than that, perfect.

      I've replaced one rear wheel bearing (at like 150K-ish I think). Other than that, no known issues. I have noticed the last few months that the ride is a little soft and borderline unstable in hard turns, but I have my steelies with plus-sized snow tires on right now (205/60/16 vs the oem size 205/55/16). So I'm not really sure if what I'm feeling is from the beefier tire sidewall flexing more, or if I need struts and shocks. I wouldn't be surprised if I did. I'll know in a week or two when I switch back to my non-winter wheels and tires.
