Default How do you like your new STI?

I have been anxious to get back into a Subaru soon
I used to own an 02 wrx I was the second owner and loved the car.
I am looking to buy a 15+ STI limited possibly in the near future and have heard from some people that they hate it and motors are done for after 20k miles I have also heard that some people are inlove with them and the best subarus they've ever owned.
I know I want a STI limited I don't know what year I want and don't really know much on the differences between 15-17.
I'm yet to test drive one of these cars but would love to hear everyone's thoughts and opinions on there 15+

Most likely the people complaining about the engine not lasting are 17 year olds who abuse the hell out of their cars, or people who tune it then complain the engine can't take it. I don't believe for a second that a stock STI is going to blow up for no reason except the exceedingly rare manufacturing defect. The reason the engine is so old is because it's been pretty well proven. Subaru isn't stupid enough to keep putting an unreliable engine in a car just because it's cheap.

Yes I also figured it was people not driving they're cars properly during the break in period and always WOT all over the place

^^^^Engines are broken in prior to delivery, either way every engine has henooasibliry to fail even if you take car of it.

Engines aren't broken in before delivery...my car came with 8 miles on it, the break in period is what? Around 1500 or 3000 miles? I forget the number
