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.
