Sorry for the interruption BC-BF owners,

Robert Faulkner (Subaru2 group)and 2.5L 2000 and newer owners,

I read several weeks ago about R. Faulkners problems with his car:
poor paint upon delivery and also what sounds like ( valve chatter)
engine piston slap.

My 2003 Baja got piston slap after 2000miles of use, I also have a
noticeable engine vibration at idle after proper warmup. Vibrations
much worse at the passenger side of engine. Engine seems out of
balance. I sense vibrations by pressing on the front ignition wire
rubber boot on the side of head. Factory Rep, Ed Luksic, says my car
is normal. I don't believe a word he says. Has anyone in this group
tested or own 2000 and newer 2.5L Subarus?

Could you describe your piston slap?
Can you sense engine vibrations as I have described?
Who else has piston slap out there?
Engine vibrations at idle?

1993 Legacy 5spd 133kmi runs great. Wish my Baja was as good.
