Knowing my luck, I'd run the stock tune for 3 year/ 36,000 miles, THEN have a ringland failure and lose my money anyways. No thanks. I have zero regrets I did my tune immediately.
Why don't you just run stock til 3 years/36,000 miles close to running out then use a better aftermarket tune? It's kind of stupid how Subaru can blame you for abusing the car. The wrx/sti were built to be fast so it isn't really abusive if you're driving the car the way it's supposed to be driven.
