There is a particular build date, Mid 08, that is known to have catastrophic engine failure issues. Link
I don't know if thats what you're looking for, beyond that I haven't heard of any major issues with reliability for that MY.

Cool! My family business is
Romagnoli Carrozzeria Di Romagnoli Giuseppe E Alberto S.N.C.

Via Bassone

They also have Gomma Sirvice.

I WISH they lived closer to Hanover PA! I could use a cheap place to get tires and custom paint work.

PS: Here is a photo of one of my Uncle's race car.

I live in Aviano, PN. It's nice but I need to travel down to verona. How do they take to subaru's where you live? There is quite a large subie community here in this region. There is a cool subie shop here in Corva called Auto4 di Scian Ugo. They had a spec c there some time back. Sweet ride. We are having a tuner car cruise this summer up in the dolomite's, your more than welcome. PM me I shoot you the information.

The Subaru owners here sounds like the same in Italy. Do the Subie owners wave to each other like they do here?

I'm hoping to go back over next year if the US dollar gets better for the Italian GP.

Manco L'italia. Abitato in Sicilia s Formia (LT) per quattro anni. Ma I only saw one Subaru ,that I can recall, while I was there and that was a blue STI in Catania. I remember being so excited to see it. Welcome and you are lucky. I wish I could go back.

Auto4 has a couple of nice 2003-2006 subaru's for sale, then you can get the ej205, it is a better motor than EDM ej2.5. There should be around 10-15 car's and 20 or so people. You can help me with italian, I can help you with english. Anybody is welcome. My baby girl's name is abigail, she is due on june 10, 2010. Our first baby. I will keep you informed of when and what time the cruise will be.

I'll try to wish you a happy birthday, but i may be very busy as you know. I like the newer model impreza also. Really like the hatch 5 door. If I sell my 02 wrx I'll buy the new 2011 sti. Here's a pic of my wrx. well it was supposed to be a pic of my car but could not find it.
