Any 'new' news on the STi and it's import status into the USA?

I went to my local dealership and they did not have a list or know any info. but they said that their is some sort of big subaru meeting for the "fleet" managers or something( that know all the stuff about imports, there is one per dealership) in may, and to check back then because that is when they will know the imports for the upcoming year. I do not know the truth in this, just passing it on.

I am on a list here in Wisconsin. My dealer feels its more a matter of "when" than "if" an STi model is coming. I surf imprezawrxsti.com regularly as well. I imagine we'll all know within minutes if any REAL news comes out.

They said this, they said that....

My dealer (the guy who sold me my car) told me they'd be here by the end of this year. He said September.

Well, I got confirmation on the Evo7. Jan, 2003. This may be old news to some, but it has some input on this thread.

I need to go find a Subaru guy that I know will not BS me and get the truth from him, but I'd imagine they would push for the STi to come here in competition to the Evo. But, yes, if anyone gets any good info, do tell.

Right now- it's all rumors and speculation- which doesn't nessecarily make it false information. When talking to several sources and surfing the web, two dates consistantly come up:

September/October 2002

and

March/April 2003

I have had numerous people tell me that they will probably announce in September, and the cars will be here as 2004 models in March/April 2003. This is right with the orginal timeline given by Mike Whelan at the WRX launch of "a couple of years". March/April 2003 is "a couple" of years after March/April 2001. This is what I am betting on right now.

But we all shall see not to long from now!

As soon as I hear anything, it will be up on my site, I promise that. Some of my sources have my pager number, and of course, being an IT geek I'm always near a computer.

A lot of people (adults anyway) on this board are IT geeks of some kind JJ. How do you think we afford our cars?
