I second that notion. I may have to stop by the Jeep display first, since my father-in-law owns a Jeep dealer and runs the display every year. :D

See ya there!

It looks as though Subaru is going to launch something at the show. If you move the live cams towards Subaru you will notice a ton of chairs set up in front of the main stage. I wonder what it is?

Yesterday I was checking the site and noticed what looked like the backend of an STi. A couple hours later I checked back and noticed 2 vehicles under covers. I think they are just STi. Maybe an S252 or something. Wouldn't that be nice.

BTW, notice the Lambos behind the Subaru display and what looks like Porsche behind and to the left.

So when is everyone going?

Yup, I did notice that the Subaru booth is pretty much surrounded by the exotics.

I will be going Friday the 21st early with my wife and son - little 6 month old future car nut!

Hey, did any of you guys at the Chicago auto show hear what the woman talking said??? When she was wrapping up her little speech, she said the STi would be around $33k to $34k. I heard it twice. The two people I asked did not know how much it weighs. There will be 3600 the first year. First ones to come in June. One person working there said there are 200 ordered in the Chicago area already. Wonder where I am on that list. :(

BTW, the STi looks even better in person.

I have to get the film developed in my stone age 35mm camera. :)

BTW, one more thing I forgot to mention. She also stated that they estimate 0-60 in 4.5X and that one of the car mags, I think it was Road&Track, got a 4.4 0-60.

I just remembered one other thing one of the Subaru people told me at the show when I asked... there are no fog lights behind the covers, but she also did not know if the covers were removable and if so how they are attached.

One thing I've found with these Subaru Reps is that they're just marketing people that usually don't have much technical knowledge about the car...when I was at the Petersen Preview, one of the reps actually had to look at the brochure when asked how much horsepower and torque the STi had! And he read it wrong, saying that it had 227 horses :roll:

There was a spec sheet posted by one of the members saying that there in fact was fog lights behind those covers. I wouldn't put much faith in those reps when they seem to know a lot less about the car than we do on this message board! SOA ought to know that those who are interested in the car are not the general public, but are very well informed and are not just interested in hp and torque numbers (which they get wrong, too!), but also suspension, weight, brakes, lateral accel, etc...they should have a techie-type that has intimate knowledge of the car at any of the previews to answer questions...or they need to train their people much much better.
