That is just funny to me. Sorry....

I just have issue with people that have these issues saying they don't drive them hard. Sorry. With my experience at my dealership and reading posts on here for 10 years(5 as a registered user), I just don't have sympathy. I have owned an 04 STi, 08 STI, and currently an 09 WRX with 83K miles and never had even a hiccup in any of those cars.

The new DIT in the Forester can run regular. Maybe the next WRX/STI will be able to.
