From April 27th:Hello everyone,
I was in Miami yesterday for training on the 03 Forester. In my group we had alot of Subaru Reps and upper management people going thru the same training as well as the regional trainer. I asked him about the Sti during lunch. His comments were that Mitsubishi and Subaru are playing alittle game with each other. Mitsubishi knows Subaru will launch the Sti as soon as they launch the Evo VII. So they are waffling abit on release date now as well as being very vague on pricing. I saw the same article as all of you in Sports Compact Car. He says he heard Evo Vll will be in
the middle to upper 30s. This is all comments from our regional trainer. He told me he feels the Sti is ready to go soon as Mitsubishi launches the Evo. We will see what happens. I hope to have a bigger update in May when I go to the Dealer Meeting. I thought you all would enjoy hearing about the game playing between the 2.
Talk to you soon,
More as I get it....Hello Everyone,

Impreza will change August. ( 2003MY) ( Maybe STI model will ship to U.S. October or November.) Everybody thinks Subaru & STI has a lot of excess stock of Impreza in Factory. Also rear spoiler......
They need to try sell them before August..........
Then supply this model.
