apparently the Series.White is a real thing - Subaru already has the color matched splash guards in their parts catalog for Ceramic White https://parts.subaru.com/p/Subaru__/...1SVA000W8.html

Nice find. They'll probably wait until after the S209 release to announce it.. seeing as how the S209 is still a 2019 model.

Well it was announced. I have a regular STI on order, I'm seeing if my dealer can get this for me instead. The price for the changes seems pretty reasonable. Kind of like an RA but without the carbon roof spoiler. $43,595 https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/2...-series-white/

I really like both the WRX and the STI. I love white cars and the BBS rims are a huge improvement over the stock two tones.

If you're considering a white STI Limited, I don't know why you wouldn't just get the series white instead.

Mine on order is a base, but when you tack on short throw shifter, recaros and a few other accessories, price isn't THAT far away from the white.series. I can't do the limited because of headroom issues so this really hits the mark.

Can't wait in 1-2 years from now when everyone is butt hurt tying to sell their "Ultra Rare - Limited Series - Special Color" editions for an absurd resale price because they
A. couldn't really afford it or
B. realize they should have waited for the 2021 post EJ25 era models
But no one is going to want to buy them because replacement body panels and/or paint jobs are too difficult and for the price, a new model will be the best option.

Someone's mad.
If no one buys their price has to drop, no big deal. You also have no idea if the next gen will be an improvement. 2008-2014 got softer. Also, the FA in the WRX has rev hang and less character. Who knows what the future holds.

I love the look of the bronze BBS STI wheels but 20", really? Too big. Even 19" is pushing it.

Edit: hmm the cnet article says 19". This is where I saw 20: https://www.motortrend.com/news/2020...-price-photos/
Edit2: And Subaru also says 19". Makes way more sense.

Do we have any idea what head unit is used in this car? Standard or the one from the limited?

Yea I bough a 2020 knowing the next gen would drop the EJ. I wanted the EJ. We are all pretty sure the next engine will be the 2.4DIT. I had a 2015 WRX and know the FA and still wanted the EJ.

Get what you want. Its going to be your car. If you change your mind get what you want then. Cars are made all day long.

I do like the series white wheels. I will be looking for them as take offs in the used market. They will eventually pop up.

I was thinking the same, with a fresh coat of silver paint for the calipers. That gold would look atrocious with neon yellow poking out from behind.

2020 is such a mature platform with so many fixed engine issues.
I know when the FA hits itís going to kick ass, but itís also going to bring a lot of new issues with it. Along with EPS. The STIs steering right now is pretty freakin dialed. Nice quick, tight hydraulic rack.
I love the looks too and fear what Subaru may do to the new one..

Must resist...

Also agree. As much as I want the 2020 to be the last of the ej25 since I'll likely be buying one I think there will be 2021s with the EJ. Maybe even an EJ25 final edition for the US.

As far as the series white I might put a deposit down to hold a place in line if my dealer gets one. Love those bronze BBS!

New Levorg is going on sale mid 2020, WRX and STI will follow shortly after. Probably early 2021 in US, could be sooner.

There has been no official announcement of what engine if any other than the long standing EJ will be put into the 2021 STI. My guess is they will continue with the current engine and just keep refining and upping the horsepower as they have started to do. If it aint broke dont fix it...there is zero reason to put a completely different engine into the STI. The next model should get a twin clutch and the S209 engine standard.....THAT would be an AMAZING car. Please keep DI engines away from the STI!!! Its also a good bet that the S209 didnt get forged pistons because they are going to keep the upgraded cast pieces and forged rods and use that engine as the more mass produced standard engine for STI's for 2021 on up.

Just got back from training and I joked with a "Series.Purple". That gave them a good laugh.

EJ is dead. No two ways about it. "Not broke" isn't quite right. It may not be broke, but outdated. EPA has seen to that. It's time for a new platform to start with.

If this was the last year of the EJ, wouldn't we have gotten a "Final Edition" instead of the Series.White?

Yup, watched a video of a mechanic that works on Subaru's and he was explaining that the new FA/FB engines are built with less strict tolerances in the cylinders/rings and rotating assembly than the older EJ engines and that is why we are seeing problems with oil consumption in the newer engines. All in the name of greater gas mileage when coupled with the CVT's. Subaru seems to be struggling to keep up with increasing gas mileage standards because of their AWD systems and the inefficiency of the boxer design.
