That engine was driven with that cylinder running too lean. When a turbo engine throws a check engine light, drive it very gently or park it until the cause is determined.

or is it all just shaved bare ...so much so that a Aussie compatriot need look for parts on a world wide forum

What would cause a cylinder to run lean?

Plenty of Subaru dealers in that location and the one at Docklands often offers discount parts on eBay

The big problem in Australia is the exorbitant cost of parts, many double the cost of the same part you pay in the US.

Often worth the shipping if you can arrange it. I am about to replace the torque converter in my 2011 3.6 Outback due to "shudder" that is getting progressively worse.

I can get a torque converter in the US for around US$675 plus shipping of around US$125. That makes it around $1,050 Australian dollars delivered to my door. The same part to buy in Australia is around $2,200 Australian dollars.
