Yeah, but if that's true its going to be a huge price increase. The STi version of my car was only $5k more, which is not hard to swing. Probably my biggest regret, but I had just started a new job and immediately got a better job after signing my lease. But, that's why i like leasing rather then financing, so your not losing your *** in a trade in. Or dumping money into mods to make it an STi.

If the new STi is deep into the 40's there's a lot of other cars with better interiors and more refinement to look into. The WRX and STi are a huge value where they are at. And they lease out awesome because of their good residual value.

I'd like to see the next STi in a hatchback with a slight displacement increase and a little bump in horsepower.

I do not think the price will increase. With the Focus RS and the new Honda Civic SI both pushing more HP than the STi (and in the same price bracket) I do not see them pushing the price. They need more power at the same price point to stay relevant. We will have to wait and see obviously because it's pure speculation at this point, but I am crossing my fingers for more power with less mods!

Welcome to the Suby club
I've owned a variety of vehicles in my life, my 07 Forester FXTS is head and shoulders above anything I've owned
It's been bulletproof at 170k miles and I'll never own a non AWD car again
Plan on keeping it forever and upgrading it as things break

One more Subaru Ambassador here!

You also get $150 credit every quarter to order swag from their site. It's mostly miscellaneous promo type stuff for you to give away. They just ask that you check-in every month and let them know how many Subaru related interactions you've had (like a 1 minute survey). They don't have any specific requirements for staying in the program, other than checking in every month.

Here's their site: https://www.subaruambassador.com/

Not an ambassador. I actually sell them new and Pre-owned. If I can be of assistance don't hesitate to ask. I am in the Philadelphia market.

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

No,just smoged it and it ran clean
The gasket seeps a little but I check the fluid levels frequently, no compression leaks.I make sure to use the additive and change the coolant often
It's the 2.5 turbo with a 5 speed ,I dream of adding the 6spd and STI brakes and suspension

Nice boy racer cars, but for 40k the STI has a pretty subpar interior... and this from someone who likes plain interiors (not for 40k tho!)

What's subpar about multi position power Recaro seats with leather and Alcantara upholstery?

Same or higher price tag on Audi and VW performance sedans and no where near the level of support or performance.
