Default 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA Review


Ryan takes the $48,995 Subaru WRX STI Type RA Limited Edition around the Thermal Club Race Track in Southern California. Is this just another warmed-over sticker package or has Subaru made real improvements in the already great WRX STI? Along for the ride is British Rally Champion and #farmkhana hot-shoe Mark Higgins.

I thought the "standard rear view camera" was required by law after ~2017? This review claims it is nice to have lol... more like, it better have a rear view camera!

I had a BMW that I swore was a 2018 that didn't have a back-up camera standard. Which really threw me. Need to read up on the law. (Keep in mind that back-up camera requirement dates have moved several times. IIRC the first date was supposed to be 2012?!)

According to Wikipedia:

Quote:
On March 31, 2014, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that it would require all automobiles sold in the United States built beginning in May 2018 to include backup cameras.
The article cited was by USA Today from 2014, so not sure if that's still current. I would say they are pretty much standard in the majority of new cars being made, though. What was more surprising to me was that the BRZ/FRS (or 86 now) didn't have steering wheel controls until the 2017 refresh

Talking 242 just got sold

I went to my local Subaru dealership to get some things done to my 2011 WRX and to my surprise all the guys at the dealership who know me. Told me they had just received number 242. It was a wonderful car interior wise and I got to see it in person before it got sold. The guy apparently who bought it traded in his 2015 STi from what I was told.

Number 160 is at Neil Huffman in Louisville and itís all Black. If it wasnít for them being a ****ty dealer I would really have made my wife angry tonight. It is gorgeous and I want it but am going to hold off to see what the next year or 2 bring.
