picked up a 2008 sti new at thanksgiving (as part of the $6500 off offer). engine failed on december 10 with less than 2000 miles. break in was done correctly (afaik, as the car had 200 miles on it at the dealer), no mods, no track. #4 cylinder is affected. the reflash apparently HAD NOT been performed.
SOA is going to repair the affected cylinder (not replace the engine). i am concerned as two dealers have told me they should replace the engine.
i am looking for input as to what i can expect. sounds like it will fail again after repair looking at this forum. i'd appreciate any help/advice as i am completely new here and to the sti (coming from an m3). i've asked SOA to replace the engine and they've refused. thanks.
