Great to hear Cory! Im looking forward to my tune. I still have a fuel pump and boost controller to order. My injectors are already on their way back from DW. Granted, I don't have them back, but I cant praise DW enough for their service. I sent them thursday, coming back today. The great weekend I just had at MAM cost me more than I thought. 5 fill ups by the time I got home too.... :/ I need to also change all my fluids and give the brakes a tune up. Had a great time and learned so much!

For those that have kids how well does a back facing car seat fit behind the drives seat, assuming the seat a few knotches from being full back.

Also are new 2012 STI's hard to come by? Even when looking at dealers with in 500 miles the selection is pretty slim. I assume that because the inventory is low the possibility of getting a deal is pretty low.

Evanston in the Chicago area used to have good deals on new STis. Last fall you could custom order one for a little bit under MSRP. Look for their thread in the Vendor for sale sub forum for cars and send a PM to talk to the right person.

I don't think you can order a '12 any more though.

That would make sense as to why stock of '12's are low. Would figure the 2013's will be out by end of summer, no major changes from what I have read.

As for the interior space, there is a lot more in the GR than in previous models, but having a rear-facing child seat behind the driver's side would be a bit snug. I'd imagine you could only have the seat back a few notches from the front, but I could be wrong. It would also depend on how upright the driver sits too.

I know baby seats fit well in 09+ Foresters. I doubt that helps though.

I tried at lunch, both Impreza and Lancer are a no go . Fit well in Legacy/Outback, told a LGT is a 6 month wait and found only a few new ones online.

It's bigger than an LGT though if he needs family room.

It's only different from the STI because of power output, DCCD, suspension, and intent... :/

I've found the infant seats take up the most room, once they are in a convertible rear facing you get a little more room. In the STI i had the seat behind the passenger and it could only be back one notch and barely reclined. The new impreza has more room, I think i was able to have the passenger seat back 3 notches. Anyway, good luck! I hope you find what you are looking for!

That kinda looks like the McCivic's cousin...the one that doesn't do lots of drugs and holds down a steady job. The McCivic needs to get its life together and quit hurting people who try to help it.
