Does "about to be" an STi owner count? My white/silver Manson-family sedan was off the boat in Vancouver 7 days ago. Ole at Subaru City said it would arrive here in 8-10 days, so it could be here as early as tomorrow. Ole says mine will be the only white one in Edmonton...for now. In preparation, I have hired a team of old ladies to break the car in whilst I sleep and work. Still waiting for the green-light for the financing. Once that happens, then I shall really believe it is happening. When I have the car in my grasp, then it will be time for me to sell my 1954 Studebaker Commander with 394 Olds racing engine. Sigh. I am sure that having the Sube will take the sting out of having to sell my old friend the Stude (which needs an owner who is mechanically inclined; a.k.a. NOT ME!).Ken Reich said:Any Sti Owners in Edmonton?????
I put my deposit down on March 11 and took possession of the car on Sept 02. I am headed out to Victoria today to get rid of the pesky break-in km.s and to show the car to my father. -GrahamRASpecC said:HammerOfHope:
Hi, congrats on your new white STi. I am waiting for the MY 2005 to place an order and I plan on getting the white/silver combo that you have. I think the white accentuates the lines of the STi best, although, all the colors look excellent on the car. My question is how long was your wait for the white to be available. I spoke to Scotty at Subaru City and he said it is the most difficult color to get in Canada.
Thanx in advance and enjoy your new car.
New to the STI thing, ordered a BWG maybe in a week. Crashed my 240sx (winter tires were a little to skinned)8) Dealer pretty tight on the $ so either I wanted it or not. Looked at the base WRX but WTF only another 10-12G's seems to get you a different breed of car.tcam33 said:Blue/gold with the european front plate. 1 month old and 1000km, let the bag drivin' begin
I was doin' the same thing ...WRX or STI. A good friend has a WRX I've driven it alot and it's not even close to the STI. Totally different experience. Personally I would have regretted the WRX purchase knowing that I could have had the real thing. 8)05edm said:Looked at the base WRX but WTF only another 10-12G's seems to get you a different breed of car
LOL good luck. :roll:If I'm polite, not afraid to walk and persistant can I expect to get one for less than MSRP (which is total BS compared to the US price)?
Like last week at -52C, heated seats are mandatory in my books. The HIDs are nice, but not required. And I'll see you at the gas station. My STi doesn't sip gasoline gently, it pounds it back at a pretty good rate. :wink: I didn't buy it for it's fuel comsumption ratings, I bought it cause it goes like stink and going like stink cost money. Great all weather car.BTW the canuck version has great heated seats something you may want to consider
So you're saying I have a better chance if I'm a jerk?05edm said:
