It's a good thing I didn't pull the trigger on any of your products.
Resale of luxury sedans has always been in the toilet. Lincoln and Cadillac are no different, and resalie values of R32, Type-R and the like hold value well too. The STi is nothing special in that regard.


I never said speed was everything. I think the lot of us understand that better than you; picking singular points out of many to prove yourself right?


I'd be surprised if you bought anyone's products already knowing everything, and closed to anyone with a differing opinion

I'll leave this here for anyone interested in getting a C63 on the cheap:

I Fixed Everything On My Cheap C63 AMG But Then It Broke Twice On Our First Drive. Amazing V8 Sound! - YouTube

These are Harbor Frieght cars....one time use, then throw them away. Pay close attention to how many times shit goes wrong in just this one video. There is a reason you can pick these (at one point $80k cars) for $9000 today.

I had a buddy with one of these, he loved it. He actually ran OLOA in it one year. He didn't have a problem with the car, but he is a competent owner too. He placed overall 4th in OLOA last week in another German POS.

I'm guessing you actually do not have any experience with these other cars... They all have their issues. Subaru is no different... Short blocks sales are probably highest of all other car makes combined.

Oh I have experience with them....it's the reason I never buy German cars :-)

Also, I know all cars have problems....Subaru is no exception. However, I would rather spend $3k-$4k on a new Subaru block than $10k+ on a new AMG block. You can go all day trying to explain to me how much better a Benz is to an STI, but at the end of the day I will have a much better car for $38k (built in Japan) than an AMG owner at close to $100k (which is not even built in Germany).

You talk about being "one-minded", you seem to be promoting that theory more than opposing it. The STI (no matter how you put it) is an overall better buy for the money and resale....period.

You will clearly never understand where many of us are coming from. Closing thread. Don't turn a thread into this again or you'll be gone as well.
