So who here is thinking about going or have already made plans to go to Detroit?

I know that myself and Nate have already made plans. I will be there from January 11 to January 14 (Saturday thru Tuesday). Nate is going to be there Sunday and Monday.

How about anybody else? Anybody live in Detroit or around there? I know that I will need a ride from/to the airport. I will pay gas money, take you to dinner, whatever. I would rather do that than pay a cab... :)

Alfredo and I are going to the LA Autoshow on Jan 10th. If the rumors are correct we will have pictures first. Go figure.

I need to check the calendar here. I know I'm in Hawaii sometime after the first of the year. Might be back in time, but that may be just a little too much traveling all at once.

For those of us unfortunate enough to make it....we want pictures within hours of you taking them!!!!

Actually, I won't be going. I was already going to be in the Detroit area and I thought I could make a side trip to the show without too much additional work. Turns out it would be a lot more work than I thought it would be. :cry: :x

The STi WAS going to be at the LA Auto Show. I have a copy of the Subaru Memo in front of me right now that describes the change in plans. I will type the applicable portion here for everyone to see.

Greetings Western Region dealers!

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to reschedule and change venues for the 2003 WER Dealer Meeting. The meeting will no longer be held at the LA Auto Show on January 9th. Instead, the 2003 WER Dealer Meeting will now be held January 16th at the Utah International Auto Expo in Salt Lake City from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

Accomodations for the event...

Sincerely,

Brent Gunderson, Regional Marketing Manager
Bo Rumbley, Regional Management Associate

STi will NOT be at the LA Auto Show.

The story I got is as follows:

"Circumstances beyond our control" = the folks running the LA Auto Show would not let the STi be brought in after the beginning of the show and Subaru would not bring the STi in until after it had been shown to the press in Detroit/Chicago, so Subaru opted out of the LA Auto Show all together. So they are shipping the LA STi to Salt Lake City Utah.

Oh well, it all seems too political for me. :roll: :x

I would think that LA-AS was pissed because they were the brides-maid in this case and not the bride. :roll: I still think that is a bad attitude, because the STi will attract MANY visitors where ever it shows up. Now, people that were thinking of going to LA may not even go.

Bad move on thier part...

I'm still gonna go just in case things change. I don't wanna miss out just b/c of some rumor that may very well turn out incorrect
(let's hope!) ...btw, I just spoke to Jeremy of Irvine Subaru and he had heard the same thing that the STi might not be at LA AS but then there was still debate, and it might show up after all. Given that Marine06 spotted one in CA (given also that he wasn't seeing things hehe) I'd say there's still a good chance it'll be here. There's gotta be more than one STi test car here in the states, right?
