I was wondering about Crosstreks and Imprezas and how they are doing through this and what failure rates they're seeing. The FB engine isn't much different at all.

I've always been partial to mini lites. I've seen them on these cars in 16" and they look very classic. Those Watanabes also look great but are pricey and tough to find.
