Would the extra 500cc give a more normal running car that you dont need have running hard in the turbo range all the time and kinda just let it chug along better? which in turn would give better mileage?

The way I drive, I've never even come close to posted milage. I am resolved to the fact that I'm going to get terrible milage. If I were that concerned about milage, I'd get an Insight or Prius.

AMEN BROTHER!!! Can i get a witness! I don't understand how people can complain about low gas mileage, no sunroof, ride quality, short tire life, only a 3yr/36,000mile warrantee, etc when talking about this car. If these things bother you then this AIN'T the car for you. Now if you want a Japanese fire breathing, Low gas mileage getting, hard riding, Soft sticky tire destroying street monster sports car that happens to have 4 doors....well this is the car for you. MY gas mileage is gonna be horrible....I'm gonna go through tires like milk through a cat....the warrantee will be worthless within the year and I'm gonna love every minute of it! WORD!! :p

I couldnt give a rats a*@ about gas mileage since I have lived in a part of the world where gas is 4 times as much as In the US, but I was merely curious that your highway dudes could get a good reading because of the extra 500cc and being able to lug around on highway in 6th gear.

Although I agree that fuel economy wasn't a #1 concern when I got my WRX and won't be if I get the STi, it still played a small role. I wanted a vehicle that had 4 wheel drive and wasn't a gas-guzzling SUV. Compared to the SUV's out there, the entire Impreza line is fuel miserly :lol: I wanted to be able to go anywhere...AND park anywhere! If you're concerned about fuel economy then yeah get a hybrid, I'd go for the Civic hybrid, even the regular Civic gets great fuel economy! If you still want the STi, then use it as a weekender and lend it to me as a weekly driver :wink:
