I just bought an 06 Impreza with the 2.5 and when I test drove the vehicle it had the same issue. Turns out that there are two sensors behind the upper radiator hose, the oil pressure and crank sensor. One of those was leaking oil and the oil was accumulating on the block, heating up and causing the smell. Check there. Hope this helps
