I am going to call SOA tomorrow. just sent them this message:

"I have sent a message earlier about adding a tow hitch to my 2012 Impreza 2.0i. Well i called and the customer service told me that the "2012 Impreza was not designed for it. The frame, rear differential, and the transmission was not designed for it." All i want is to do it use a tow hitch for cargo carrier (not trailer) and a bike rack. Can you tell me what are the design difference in engineering between the U.S. version and the Australian version? Not only do they have a maximum towing capacity of of 650 Kg or 1430 Lbs and have a maximum hitch load of 120 Kg or 264 Lbs, but they also have a genuine Subaru Tow Bar or a Tow Hitch. "
