Actually, you mean "discreet", not "discrete".

dis·creet
1. Marked by, exercising, or showing prudence and wise self-restraint in speech and behavior; circumspect.
2. Free from ostentation or pretension; modest.

dis·crete
1. Constituting a separate thing. See Synonyms at distinct.
2. Consisting of unconnected distinct parts.
3. Mathematics. Defined for a finite or countable set of values; not continuous.

Default A little more 06 Impreza info

Forgive me for not giving out my source, but I don't want his phone flogged with questions. But, I'm no one special...i don't actually know this guy, he's just a salesmen who rallies (his partner took over SCCA...or whatever rally organization took over here in the states...he co drives with doug havir (spelling)).

But anyway, he's trust worthy. He told me on 2-7-05 that the next impreza would have a 2.5 liter with 230 hp and 17 inch rims standard...and that ended up to be accurate info. And not that this is that much extra info, but... the 06 wagon is going to be available with the premium package (sunroof, heated seats, and so forth).

That's it. Take it for what it is. Sorry for not giving the source's info.

^im thinkin you meant the WRX will come with that stuff standard.. i highly doubt they would drop out the lower half of the model line up including the 2.5rs, Outback sport, etc.. those will probably have the 2.5 with 173hp from the forester

All good info, and let's hope he's correct. Keep the info coming as you get it, and thanks.

Ditto.

I'm looking for the equivalent of this:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...postcount=4930

Those nice JDM wheels, a good engine, and maybe an upgrade to LGT brakes.

Yeah I have several reps throwing screaming deals on STi my way but swear they have zero info regarding the 06 only that they will be available in roughly 4 months. (Aug./Sept.) who knows maybe nothing will change but the buzz is just too much to resist.

Default RS Sport package sedan and outback Sport SE wagon model dropped

From cars101.com:

"2006: subject to change and correction.

New front end on all models.

All Impreza models get center armrest, outside temperature guage, air filtration, front seatback net, and front and side airbags.

WRX gets new larger 2.5L with 230hp, 17" alloys. Premium package finally available on wagon and includes leather!

RS models renamed 2.5i (like the Legacy/Outbacks) and the 2.5L horsepower is increased to 173 from 165.

RS Sport package sedan and outback Sport SE wagon model dropped after one year (2005 only) "

The new tidbit is the Outback Sport SE wagon being dropped.

Joe Spitz is usually pretty good with Subie info. If he says so, I'd say it's pretty likely true.

Good.
Now they can make an Impreza STi Wagon with more clearance/suspension travel and brakes that will fit rally wheels and call it the new Outback Sport STF ewe!

damn I just test drove a G35 coupe last night and loved it... but now I really want to wait for the new impreza to see how that turns out.

Oh well, means more money saved up for down payment.

Default I'm in the same boat

I don't know which one I want either. I'm a big fan of Nissan and their legacy. The G35 or the Sti is a tough decision. That's like comparing drifting to rally racing, which one is more fun Oh well, I'm also going to wait until the new Sti comes out before I make my final decision...

Yeah but I'm hearing it'll be around the $60-70k range, sort of like the NSX.

Waaay out of my price range, unless I see some bad-ass promotions/raises in the next 2-3 years.

STi will have less power, (263hp) larger wing, (watch out in parking garages) and larger hoodscoop, (will inhale small children and the elderly) 16" wheels, and regular wrx brakes.

the front end will be restyled to resemble a 1948 Tucker.
