    I can recommend Colonial Subaru on Street Rd (Rt 132) in Lower Southampton, PA.

    I recently had my radiator replaced and left my intake mod, APS blow-off valve, and Joe P MBC under the hood. I got excellent service from friendly personnel.

    I bought my car from Flemington Subaru in Flemington, NJ because they had the best price, but Colonial is MUCH closer to my home.

    Ah, was it a pain to get the car registered in PA after you bought it in NJ? Have you delt with Fred Beans Subaru in doyelstown?

    MBC=manual boost controller right? Wow, are dealerships general cool about that kind of thing?

    How has your car been to this point? Alot of repairs etc.,?


    Thanks so much for answering my questions!

    You'll get a 20 day temporary NJ tags. The plates with temporary registration window sheet should arrive at the dealership (which was my case) or at your door.

    I got mine at Coleman Subaru in Trenton, NJ. A little bit of a hike but the people there are great. I didn't have any probs at all.

    I think everyone who posted (except for me) is from the Philly area.

    See Plat's note on the Bucks Co. GTG

    My mom bought an Outback from Colonial a while back and she was very happy with them. I recently bought a WRX (not from Colonial, though (I got it cheaper elsewhere)), and I am interested in modding it a bit (exhaust, intercooler, intake, et cetera). Does anyone know of any tuning shops in the greater Philadelphia area? A while back I ran into TRI Tuning, out of Nazareth I believe, but their website (www.trituning.com) seems to be down. Does anyone have any experience with them? Will Colonial do aftermarket installs such as the ones I mentioned?

    Eger Subaru in King of Prussia is good. I bought my rex there and they said they will install my tubo timer for me when it arrives. Don't know about other mods though.
