Wow, stoked to have found this forum.... About 2 months ago, replaced my '90 Legacy sedan with an 08 2.5i 5dr in the canadian "sport" package (alum. wheels, ground effects, heated seats, rear discs, fog lights, upgraded audio, and traction control added). Basically, I couldn't be more happy with it, put on 8 000 mi already! Main thing I'd like to talk about would be that new ETC... mine definitely has a noticeable "rev-hold" during upshifts. I noticed this from the initial test drive, and my buddy who is a tech at the dealership says the best he can recommend is wait for a re-key of the engine computer to come out.... so anybody else finding this to be annoying, bring it to the attention of your dealer... maybe they'll get on it? I know that for drifting around in the snow in BC, when I lift off the gas, I want OFF the gas!
