Default Only 200 STI in Canada

Hi everyone..

My local dealer just told me that there are 200 instead of 100 go into Canada because there are more than 100 preorder so Subaru upgrades more normal WRX to STI. And also the dealer confirmed that Canadain STI has HID too.. Just want to share the news,,....

Dealers are usually not a good source of news. I'm sure Canada is getting more than 200 STis.

Considering that Subaru's Canadian sales are roughly 1/10 of its US sales and considering how many STi's will be delivered to the US this calendar year, 200 STi's for Canada sounds reasonable to me.

Though I have heard we aren't getting HIDs, there is no reason why we can't. So we need DRLs? Many a car here has HIDs with/as DRLs. Only time will tell, I guess.

I believe you posted Subaru sales specs for 2001-2.
US sold 18k+ WRX's and Canada sold around 6k. This suggests that canada will get alot more than 200 STi's. If US bought as many per cap as Canada. Subaru would have sold 60k WRX's in US.

Please correct if wrong.

BTW my dealer here in Canada has been very accurate with STI info way back in September 2002.
Lots to go around.

I based my 1/10th remark on total Subaru sales in 2002. SOA sold 180,020 Subarus in the US while SCI sold 17,236 in Canada. It does seem, though, that the Impreza line represents a larger proportion of Subaru sales in Canada than in the US. In Canada, 36% of all Subarus sold last year were Imprezas (6,134), whereas in the US, only 21% of all Subarus sold were Imprezas (38,226). In the US, 60% of the Imprezas sold were WRXes (22,910). I don't know what proportion of Canadian Imprezas (6,134) were WRXes.

The Press Release from SOC about the HIDs was that Subaru HIDs are unable to do DRL. Go figure.

Thanks for the as usual detailed reply.

My dealer has ordered 9 STI's as of 2/06/03
1 black
1 Silver
7 Blue

BTW
SOC is only letting dealers place orders for confirmed deposits, no lot cars.
