That sucks. Thats a major reason I traded my 12 impreza in for a Crosstrek.
I was driving on a paved, marked road and hit a GINORMOUS pothole and bottomed out hard. Then when I arrived at my destination, parked next to my "lowrider" was a dmg XV.
I now drive a dgm XV and havent even come close to having this happen again.
Have you thought about spacers for a wee bit of lift?
