how are you importing it at that price?

i called the official locations and only a few would convert it to us-specs..have you looked into converting it first, b/c if not they will impound the car if it has not passed paperwork and all that.

i live in germany...drove an STi.loved it, but importing was too much. i can get the STi at $25 US out the door.

If this is for real, there are a lot of us in this forum, that would gladly pay 30K for an STi. Why don't you import a few more and pocket the 5K a piece for them?.

If not you can just sell me yours and keep my 5K. :lol:

Did you happen to note the manual WRX sedan for $41,490 AUD, or $23,110 USD. Those numbers correlate very well with the base model WRX price of $23,995 USD for the US version. Can we therefore expect the STi pricing to correlate as well? I think so.

newb question

I think alot of the price is marketing and less what it costs to make. Lots of different factors, demand being a big one. Some things are sold for a loss for promotion purposes etc...
An off topic example for you. Big gaming consoles (PS2, Xbox) sell for a loss just so they can sell the games! In any manufacturing there is a threshhold to break through which is attributed to fixed costs like R&D, design, testing and what not. Luckily for us the STi is not a new concept so the more they sell all over the world the better for us. In the end speculation is just that, speculation.
