It would be smart, who needs to go 130 in 4th anyway?

Did anyone notice the STi price? $55,380 AUD. That translates to $28,380 US. That is the right price for the car.

i knew this was going to happen as many didn't agree with me on the gears/ratios problems in the WRX earlier...

Wrong post about the STi and price.

This is about the gearing in the normal WR and nothing about proce.

Thanks for playing!

That said, I'd trade my wagon in in a heartbeat if they offer that here in the states. The shift points are 'just under' where boost kicks in. A little more optimum shifting is a great bit. Maybe 0-609 in 5.3 to 5.1 with the new gearing in 2nd? Hmmmmm

ummm... and did you notice the 40k price tag on the WRX? that's around 20k for a WRX there...
since we got marked up 3-4 k for the wrx... i think that SOA will markup the STI a bit more... low sales volume and large cost in getting the car emissions certified...

oh well doesn't bother me.... i love my WRX...and will only be in want of the 6-spd tranny in the STI... heheh

The WRX now also gets the Liberty B4's keypad alarm and immobiliser system. The new WRX range also gets a window-integrated radio aerial and outside temperature display

the wheel size of a forester is diferent than a wrx(i'm not sure on the baja) but that means it would mess up the tranny using traditional wrx wheels with it.

good job Garwin. Danc finally got his answer, after 7 years of waiting!
