I hear something that sounds like an exhaust leak, although I know it's not. It seems to become noticeable after the car has run for a while and then it goes away. I've tried to isolate the source of the sound and as best as I can tell, it is coming from the front of the engine but that's the best I can figure.

It sounds louder when you're alongside cars etc. because the sound is bouncing back (you knew that). See if you notice it all the time when you're next to things that reflect sound.

It would be great if the dealer can figure it out. Please let us know what you find out.

mine definately sounds like a exhaust leak, when accelerating you notice it even more, i was at a stop light next to a nissan 350z i drive forward as the ligh turns green i hit another red light then the guy in the 350 z gets next to me an tells me that i might have an exhaust leak also , he owns an exhaust shop, so its not just me.

Mine is the loudest when cold on acceleration,i don't think its a leak.I think the noise is coming from the cross over pipe that bolts too the heads.Subarus use too have double walled exhaust pipes,and the inner pipe would crack or split open on the down pipes from the exhaust ports.And it would kinda sound like that,i don't know if this is the case or not.I know it use too not make that noise before,and now its getting louder.I got around 12,000 miles on mine.Back in the 80s subaru had a lot of exhaust problems,we replaced y pipes almost daily for cracking as well as mid pipes for rattling.

no dealer techs are stupid, the tech they have there says there is no noise and i can record it and play it for them but he still insists on it being ok, i will eventually check it myself and repair it, then i will take this with a subaru apraiser to take upon the charge or its time for the law to come in....

I still think its in the exhaust pipe that bolts to the heads,what we need is someone that has that noise and has changed to a header to see if the noise goes away.I know that mine is getting louder,and that noise was'nt there in the begining.I got about 12,500 miles on mine.

If you have an exhaust leak, areas around the leak will be BLACK especially before it goes through any cats... look for spray or burned/charred areas around the flanges where you think the leak could possibly be.

Is it making the sound at idle or when you get on it? After the engine gets broken in and things start working, you're going to start hearing the turbo & intake a little more. When I bought ours, it was very quiet. Now, we have about 3K miles and I'm starting to hear the woosh of the turbo a little more. I'm sure it's going to get a little louder as time goes on, just like it did with my WRX.
