It turns out that they have a great deal setup at their website:
You can sign up for 3 days of unlimited access to all OFFICIAL Subaru manuals in PDF format for only $19.99. This is plenty of time to download alll the different files (~70MB; individual manuals are divided into ~7 chapters, which are all broken up into ~15 PDF's). It takes a little bit of figuring out, I believe that after registering, you get the option to choose the PDF download option.
For my -non-professional- use, I consider this a great deal. I can check anything on my car with the official standards. And because I think it is great initiative from Subaru to make this available (perhaps we can get a service manual PDF on CD when we buy our car in the future), I will support their effort by not sharing my PDF with others (sorry). But if you think of all the valulable tools that you have purchased for your car, this seems like a pretty cheap one.

these are links to other manufacturers sites for the factory service manuals. i've used the nissan, and it is really good, and easier to download, as it comes in only a few pdf's, not the 400 like the subaru fsm...

If you noticed my '82 -- yes, I found that out; but it doesn't matter I have a factory maual for the Sub.
I was mostly referring to other links. Just the other day I was wondering if I could find parts manual for my Ford -- and the answer to my question was right there in the Ford link! Not exactly your true parts manual, but after having wasted some time the result can be obtained.
