You know what.
I have only come across ONE Subaru with a ****ing clutch switch. It was a 2001 Impreza wagon 2WD. I haven't come across a single real deal non swapped GC8 with one so far. The only version GC8 I haven't driven is the 6. The last one I drove was a '99 V5 about 18 months ago. I never turn the key with the pedal depressed when I drive, the only exception was company vehicles I drove at my old employer which had them.
Anyone else want to try to me otherwise?
