Subaru specialist shops?

I have an FRS but I don't trust any Toyota mechanic to work on this model after the endless issues experienced by other owners.

Has anyone brought their FRS to Subaru specialists for work done rather than Toyota mechanics?

Any recommendations for Subaru shops in the SF Bay Area?

Neal @The Racers Line is great. I've taken my car up to him a few times, a bit of a drive for me but always worth the trip.

Forget Subaru or Toyota specialist, these shops know twins specifically

The Racer's Line in Concord

Elite Performance in Burlingame

Mann Engineering in Santa Clara

Tri-Valley Auto in Dublin (not a specialist but @MisterSheep works there)

They do great work. My motor failed after the valve spring recall and they put a new block together for me and installed it. 3-yr warranty. They are legit.
