well, they may not be fast in getting the sti to america, but they're quick to answer emails. sent a message last night, and got this response around noon CST. looks like the wait isn't ending to soon, but read into it what you might. cheers.

Thank you for visiting Subaru.com and for your interest in our

Subaru is only considering the feasibility of an STi version of the WRX
for future model years. We do not have any definite plans at this time.
If an STi version of the WRX becomes available in the United States, it
would probably not be for a couple of model years. Since we have only
recently introduced the WRX to the US consumers, it is too early to
confirm the likelihood of offering an STi version in the US.

Even though magazine articles have stated that the STi version is
coming to the US, the decision to bring the STi here has not been officially
established yet. The magazines were a little premature with their
'announcement.' It was based on our statement at a press event that if the
WRX is well received by the US buying public, we would look at possibly
marketing a US version of the STi.

We appreciate that you took the time to contact us. I will forward your
suggestion to offer an STi version of the WRX in the U.S. to our
Product Planning Department for their review and consideration. In the
meantime, keep your eye on the 'News' and 'Press Release' sections of our Web
site for the latest updates!

Best wishes,

Good day:
I've been in car shopping mode, and recently learned about the wrx sti.
If the sti wagon were in the US I'd buy one today. You probably can't
give a launch date, but go ahead and add me to the count of buyers if a
release date is soon. And if you can divulge any information....very much appreciated.
