Question problems with selecting reverse

Just wondering if many of you suffer problems in selecting reverse!!!! Sometimes it goes in first time then other times I have to release the clutch then try again, or select 1st then try it,it can be very notchy and very annoying, mines an 04WRX but I have already had 5th gear and the syncro replaced about 6 weeks ago. So I'm starting to get paranoid about it. But I'm sure it's always done it but just seems to be worse now or maybe I'm just more aware of it now because of whats happened. The only thing that makes me not worry to much is that my last impreza done it that was an 02 but don't think it was as bad as this one.

Theyre all the same especially when cold mate, bet neighbours across the road wonder whats goin off sometimes they must see my reversing lights on an off about 4 times before i back out drive

Castrol syntrax/driveline made mine slightly better when cold and alot better when warm on all gears-gear oil type makes the world of difference.

Im guessing crap design ive had a few cars an never had it with anything else ive owned-few things about scoobys that either piss you off or give them character..............depends on which way you look at it

reverse is not synchronized

thus, sometimes you will have to double clutch to get the car into R

Gives it character... or builds character ????? one of the two! I'm not sure yet but to be honest I love impreza's so can live with it...... You can't have everything??????? And now I know no syncro in reverse it seems to make sense I think I will stop worrying and put that 5th gear drama out of my head thank for the help lads
cheers
