If you haven't thrown down a grand for the STi you might be "SOL" - the states might be getting the majority of ALL STi's coming to N. America, and there might be only a handful coming after the first shipment (if there is even any coming here after the first shipment). Get that deposit down soon or you might be either #121 on the waiting list for Canadian STi's, or you will be waiting for the 2005's. Can't back any of that up but my dealer is very skeptical that we will see anywhere near the numbers of STi's that our neighbors to the south are. Even heard a rumor that the STi might be a one-off model year - sounds like B.S. though - would be a stupid move for SOC.
I hate to say it, but, it appears that the Canadian dealers have really fallen short. Their own website has more info then they do.... You'd think they'd want to be on top of their game..... obviously not!!!! I had to explain to one dealer that the Sti wouldn't have the same engine as the wrx... no clue about the 2.5L... I was then passed off to another dealer.... lol
Well I changed my mind. Im getting a 2004 Impreza WRX (Blue) I took one for a test drive at "Subaru Of Missasuga" and it is amazing. I love it. New seats, new headlights, new gauges. I am picking it up this week. I will post pics once I take them
