I have yet to see one on the road. Come to think of it I have only seen 1 STI hatch style since introduced in 98. See many legend 04-07 STIs though.

I've seen a number of Tauri on the roads, and the SHOs are very hard to tell from the SEL. The wheels are different (but similar) and the rest is just trim. The old SHOs had unique lower cladding and often different hoods and/or wings.

I think the reason that so few have been seen on the roads are because I think you need a CDL to drive one.

Engines are designed in labs to meet brake specific fuel consumption targets.

The actual MPG from the car comes later. They stuck that motor in a frickin schoolbus, what do you expect?

What the hell is a "legend 04-07 STI"?

This!
I hope they put v6 Ecoboost in Fusion. I'd get one in a heartbeat.

I came up behind one the other day in mixed traffic on the interstate and he must have been threatened by my hood scoop...he started weaving in and out like an idiot. Honestly I wasn't all that impressed with the power or it's looks.

I agree a SHO Fusion would be awesome!
