Hopefully this isn't old news. Here's the recently released Aus-spec '03 STi.

http://subaru.com.au/explore/impreza/specifications.asp?item=11587

Its price translates into 31k. Notice that the Aus-spec 5mt WRX translates into $23,950, which suggests that the current 32k price prediction may be spot on. I think 30,995 would be ok by me. Even 31,995, as long as AVCS, twin scroll, quality seats, brakes, and other goodies are included. Sure beats trying to upgrade a WRX and jeaopardizing the factory warrentee.

Incidentally, I sent my pre-order deposit in today for an STi from Vally Motors in MD. :D

I noticed the specs said it weighs 1,470KG (approximately 3,240 pounds). Isn't that a bit hefty for an STi :roll: ? I was hoping for the STi to weigh no more than 100 pounds over the WRX.

STi VS EVO Performance

A WRX is what? Around 3100 maybe? Remember, the extra weight may come from:

The 6 speed
The Brembos
Larger Intercooler with Waterspray
17" Wheels standard along with 17" tires


I'm not sure what else could add the extra weight, although some suspension points are "reinforced".

Re: Sorry for the delay.

Isn't the engine heavier as well?

I'm thinkin' the STI engine would be lighter than the WRX's because of the "higher" performance parts used and the block might be better prepped.
