can't say i've noticed much difference in the suspension yet. i'm nearing 3K. i still feel like any rough road surface around a bend unsettles the car more than it should.

i see some people claim it's an "assistance feature". i don't know if i buy that. my newest simple fix is to just turn up the radio until i can't hear the mystery revs anymore

Is this what you're using, or do you have a different solution. I was reading people complaining about the delay between the time you press the button on the wheel and the time that the HU registers the command. Do you notice this with whatever solution you are using?
i have a pioneer FH-P8000BT. it's very simple, not flashy at all. i wanted a nav or dvd player but couldn't pass up an insane deal i got on this unit... plus it attracts much less attention from theives. my friend is an installer so he showed up at my house with all the install stuff we needed to put the unit in. note that a double din head unit requires an install kit in the 08+ models because the factory opening is not exactly double din as it was pre 08. why the hell would subaru do that? i happened to save the box for the steering wheel controls converter. it says "axxess integration device : ASWI-PS PID/SNY SW Interface".

funny that you mention people complaining about a delay... i do notice this from time to time. i was playing around this afternoon after i read your post. the volume seems to respond pretty quick but the mode-change button and track buttons are a little slower. i thought it was the head unit being slow but maybe it is the converter - it doesn't really bother me so i hadn't thought much about it. i never thought steeringwheel controls would be so useful. actually, i rarely touch the radio now - just maybe when i first get in to setup a playlist or audiobook from my iphone.
