Talked to John Rugge of Subaru oef America
Other Comments or Concerns
As per telephone conversation, John Rugge said the reprogramming CD the dealer gets is the same as the J2534 CD I can get from the contact on the special tools web page of Subaru's STIS website. I obtained the CD and it is not on it (disappointed!) I need Subaru to supply the SSMIII program as stated during our telephone conversation.

Requestor replies to Rugge indicate issue is resolved. Issue required clarification by Subaru of their HDS 3000 tool capabilities and a related update subscription which is sold separately to the aftermarket as it is done to the franchise dealer.
