Its really not that bad once you get a handle on the scope of the system. When in an area that got had a lot of iXes, the biggest problem is finding yourself collecting hordes of spare parts. I've got 2 iXes currently, 2 spare tcs 2 spare 5spd trannys, 6 spare strut housings, endles axles and driveshafts, etc, etc....
There are lots of hoarders like me, mostly in canada and the northern US. Stay on top of things and the car will treat you well in return with lots of smiles.
