Last word I heard was that we wouldn't be getting an STi soon. Maybe a 4 door... Only wish for a 2 door. :rolleyes

actually last i heard was...

target release date summer of '03 as a '04 model...

With 261 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque under the hood,
a stiffer suspension, wider wheels and tires, front and rear limited-slip differentials, a six-speed manual transmission and larger Brembo brakes

in short, More power, tighter handling and bigger brakes than the current wrx...

Cool, I like the new face. Although the WRX is a hit in America, I heard that sales in Europe and Japan are pretty flat becuz the current fascia looks too cute.

Mmmm.... sounds good but don't forget that Subaru will probably price the STi in the US for just around $30k. That new s4 will probably be priced at least $15k more. I'd like to see how the new Mazda RX-8 stacks up against this car and the new Z.

If you want an Audi, spend the $85k and get the RS. Nuthin' like the world's fastest production sedan, road course or straight line. YEA BABY!

IMO subaru made a big mistake with the current WRX headlights. I think they kinda figured it out since they are changing them so soon. The STI looks awesome, maybe by 2003-2004 i can afford a car like that new.

I guess i'm not the only one who thinks it looks too cute for its own good. Ever watch WRC on Speed? Some owners have replaced the stock headlights with the rally car style projector headlights - very cool.

those headlights are pretty expensive though. The new ones look much better. Also, I know subaru's are known for their hood scoop (which feeds the intercooler) but I prefer the front mounted intercooler of the Evo

Here's a pic of an intercooler on a Civic Si. I was actually thinking of getting a turbo kit for my Si, but the labor is a lot and the car has to be tuned properly. So this mod would run close to 5 grand.
