Default STi POWER!

I'm just wondering who ordered an STi in the Toronto area. I recently ordered a black or white one. My only concern is if there will be H.I.Ds on these 50K (CDN) cars, could anyone inform me about this?

I had my mind all over a black track pack 350Z since January but when the new face lifted STi came out I thought to myself performance matters more to me since I always wanted a EVO or an STi; after driving R33, R34GTR, EVO VI, STi version IV in my hometown (Hong Kong) I can tell you guys nothing feels like a 4WD high boost turbo car, and nevermind the mod and tuning potentials. The power on the Z is not enough, disappointing to see Nissan putting the same engine into most of their cars, it's sad to see them not making a TT version out at first like the Z32 (300ZX TT), if they did I would highly consider it since I'm more used to driving RWD cars (E46 3er). Heard about the GReddy TT kit for the Z but I'd question about it's reliability at 7000USD since both the 350Z and the GReddy kit are new.

I'm a new member to this forum hoping to get a warm welcome to the Impreza family, propz for choosin this great car out of the rest! I guess you just know it when you make the right choice

Looking forward to discuss with you all, especially those in my area! happy motoring and yeah.....(always wanted to yell this out)

I also order a white STI too. but i hear someone said that HID can be a dealer option. but don't know if it is true or not. do you know when can you pick up your car. A lot of people said the first shippment only come with bule and sliver.

HID (as Subaru has done) == no DRL == no DOT approval. Simple as that.

If you don't get HID you can always do a conversion.

it really sucks if theres no HID option and I have to find after market ones that don't go under warranty. don't understand why no DOT approval since almost every car here uses HIDs...

don't know when I'll be picking up my car tho, maybe near august...sighhhhhhh

DRLs suck. I'm glad I didn't end up on the wrong side of the border.

by the way, does anyone know approximately when the Black and White STis will come to Canada? I would prefer my car to be delivered on dry road.
