Subaru is notorious for being funny about mods. Even mods that don't have any possible connection to a failure. Funny for a company with such a rich heritage in Rally racing, but whatever.
West Herr is ok, but we tried to buy a Baja T there a few years ago and they wanted to give us less on trade for our 03 than we got now, with a lot fewer miles. Plus their Baja was overpriced and a bit beat up. Maybe we should go there for service though. As far as buying new or easier to find used, I'll probably take a drive back to Glanzmann in PA.
