I'd save comments like that for after its been in service a year or two
The 6by bmw based engine they introduced was a disaster and never found popularity
the 6lp has been a good engine for a lot of years and they were still available from barrus late last year but no idea for how long. Parts should be available for quite a time to come, I think there supposed to keep parts available for 10 years after production stops
the good thing is no electronics so pretty easy to keep running without dealer support
A good option in a rib apart from the turbo lag but a reduction in prop pitch helps but with the down side of a slight loss in top speed
