Has anyone else on the west coast recieve a special viewing pass for the STi in the mail today for Jan. 11th?


I just went out to get the mail and my subscription of autoweek, when there it was, :eek: a package from SOA western reion.
Inside was a letter, an admission ticket, a viewing pass , and an STi keychain/light. :D

The letter reads:

Greetings!

We are pleased to invite you to a special preview showing of the all-new 2004 Subaru WRX STi at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 11th! You will be among the first consumers to see the ultimate car that Subaru has to offer! The STi will not be shown at the L.A. Auto Show, so this will be your only chance to see this car until it arrives at dealerships sometime next year.

The event will run from 10:00AM-1:00Pm, and we have a spectacular programlined-up for you! In attendance will be a representative from Subaru Product Planning who will giveyou insight into the development of the vehicle and will field your questions. Mark Lovell of Subaru Rally Team USA will also be on hand to talk to you and sign autographs. Representetives from Prodrive USA will be there with a Prodrive-equipped WRX and can give you information on enhancement parts that they offer. L.A.-based Easy Street Mototrsports will also have a car on display at the event.

Perhaps the best part of the show will be the opportunity to not only look at the STi, but to sit inside the car and really check it out. This is something that you definitely would not be able to do at an auto show!

Enclosed in this envelope, you will find a limited-edition event pass that will give you up-close access to the STi. You must bring this pass in order to fully experience the STi for yourself! You will also find a genuine STi keychain and neck lanyard; these items are NOT available in the United States and were special ordered from Japan just for this event. WE hope that you like them! You will also find an admission ticket to the Petesen Museum. Disregard the Senior/Child designations on the ticket; the museum will honor the pass and admit you.

We hope that you are as excited about the WRX STi as we are! The car you have been reading about and waiting for will be here soon, and it will rewrite the book on bang-for-the-buck factory performance cars! We look forward to seeing you at the Petersen Automotive Meseum!

Sincerely,

Brent Gunderson

wow...who do you know in SOA? Or did you buy a WRX recently and they sent you that? I'm wondering if I'll get that since I'm a member of SCCA and own a WRX...will have to check if the package comes tonight...

That sucks though that it won't be at the LA Auto Show :x

well I bought a WRX from Irvine Subaru in June of 2001, and ever since then I've been in contact with them asking about the STi. My sales guy was really nice and he might of had something to do with this.

I've also participated in a couple of research groups for automobiles, but besides that I have no idea, why me?

Just called the salesguy that I got my WRX through and he said to call back tomorrow...and he'd put me in touch with one of the performance parts guys who knew something about it. Then again, maybe I got the pass over at my Mom's address and I haven't checked...hopefully I got it too!

Beat the man

Are you guys on the STi list with Desire` at Frank's Irvine Subaru?

Subaru put this "Special Customer" surprise together and passed it along to us through dealerships. At least that is how Alfredob1 and I got ours.

That was very nice of them. If you are monitoring this forum; thank you Desire` at Frank's Irvine Subaru, also operators of SPi Motorsports.

Thanks again!

Thanks Subaru and Desire` at Frank's Irvine Subaru!

ok guys you need to take pics and ask if the Prodrive folks will bring in the Prodrive Enhancement Pakc good for 330 hp. If yes would it be available to be retrofitted to the existing STi's.

Mitshu is getting Ralliart into the pic with Ralliart cars (EVO extreme ) so I am sure Prodrive/STi will not just sit there.

The STi does have the potential to be a better car to begin with but we need to see at what cost.

Cheers

Nick

JJ, Subaru should send you a dozen of these. I think someone needs to introduce you to the mucky mucks at FHI, and Subaru of America.

If someone is listening...

PS: Good questions titsataki. I want to know the answers myself.

Would love to hear from the mucky mucks at SOA and/or FHI. Maybe Desi could grab some of those giveouts for me? I'll give her my addy. :)

I hope I did not just make a mess of things. :oops: :( I was told that there were only a handful of these "Special Customer passes" to go around.

JJ, I figured you would rather see the STi in Detroit rather than wait and see it in LA... The other goodies were a surprise to me.

Sorry guys, we will try to make it up to you by posting some cool pix.
