It is on a lot of cars...my 2005 WRX included.

Just so you don't feel so bad, I cracked my stock diff cover while changing the fluid 5+ years ago. I went to re-tighten the drain plug (without using a torque wrench) and got that terrible feeling in my stomach as the plug suddenly got loose and a crack split the cover from the drain hole to the bottom of the cover.

Allowed me a reason to install the RE Finned diff cover, though...

Over-torquing the drain/fill plugs will crack it easier than you'd think.
