I doubt it, because if they had a true fix for it, there wouldn't be any complaints or E-10/E-FREE theories everywhere anymore. I surely hope I'm wrong and that they've corrected the problem, but I wouldn't bet my money on it.

I'm waiting for an official confirmation! :P

Sterling Silver Metallic is not a new color unless I am missing something. I do agree that the Dark Metal Grey of the GT-R is beautiful…

I feel stupid now. I just realized that the BRZ's silver was called Sterling Silver all along lol.

Interesting - you can't get the Premium with an automatic any more! You want the auto, you bump up to Limited, plus the extra cost of the automatic. Wow - sounds like Subaru is focusing in on the market.

My car (May 12') didn't have it for the first 5k miles. Then it was pretty bad. New fuel pump which made it go away. And now around 12k miles the chirp is back again.

I proved my own E-Free theory. With e-10 91 octane, crickets, Like huge nuclear grown crickets. Ran that tank down and refilled with e-0 91 octane. No more crickets. They literately disappeared. 7800 miles too.

In the time I would have added more miles and age to my trade in, so the cost would have been quite a bit more than $100 for me. So I'm happy with my 2013

I'm glad I didn't wait! None of the additions (easy to take care of in the aftermarket) make up for not having GBS!!

Unfortunately, it is not for everyone. Mine is pretty loud and I picked up the car in late July (5/13 build date).
