That's Steve Bocks. I don't think he's ever made an event though. He's had it up for sale multiple times.

Yeah, the 08+'s have a reputation for being less reliable than the previous year STi's. There seem to be more cases of broken/cracked ringlands. Much of it is blamed on the poor stock tune that is designed to make the car more emissions friendly. I would be cautious of one that has been on the stock tune for most of its miles. Supposedly a stage 1 or 2 tune is considered safer.

You certainly want to have the compression checked before buying any turbo Subaru and that can tell you if it has already developed ringland issues.

Ed - I was pretty much in the same boat - figured I'd revisit the decision again in the spring along with a new helmet.... then this happened.

Scott - If a bunch of us have them, we could do some runs where we put ALL the cams on one car I used to edit video for a living, so I could do some sweet multi-cam edits muwhahaha
