    from what I have heard the timing belt has to be replaced every 35k miles. Also just to change the oil the front swaybar has to be removed just to get to the oil filter. Stupid stuff like that but they are expensive to maintain.

    Look up the cost of doing a brake job on one of those. You will soon love the WRX again.

    I know what dealership you were at, I drive by it all the time and noticed the RS6 there. Rare beasts, but maintaining it will be expensive. I've actually been thinking of getting into an Audi of some sort instead of a Subaru, but will see.

    thanks for the input the maintainability is a huge concern for myself since i try to do all my own upkeep and maintenance. 35K is a little to short of time frames for myself on belt changes. I really enjoyed the 2011 WRX and they do come with the 2.5 motor which is pretty sweet.
