This is quite the pissing match :rockwoot:
It's only a pissing match if there is actual arguing going on.
"the cause is never lost, if this is but one fool left to fight for it"
hahaha i love ready**** XD always there to turn my frown upside down while making millions of fools butthurt in the process LOL
I'm going to lol when Micheal comes back with a brochure of the car and it's this..
Because let's face it, the salesguy probably thinks your talking about the spec b legacy, not a spec c impreza.
Is the sales from MN? or from japan? did he quote you in US Dollars, or somthing else,
spec-b and spec-c sound much the same on the phone.
In Michael's defense Legacy and STI sound nothing alike on the phone.
The reality chet is a lot of people have no clue wtf they are talking about and miss-call things all the time, and sales people know it so they assume that's what they are talking about.
I'm going to guess that if Michael calls the guy back up and say "I'm talking about a Impreza STI Spec C, not a Legacy GT Spec B, can you still get it" the guy is going to say "no, i thought you were talking about the spec b".
I order parts all the time, I can give all the pertinent information to a vendor and fail to say "B as in boy" for any given digit in the part # sequence, and I can get the totaly wrong part,
much less, talk to a guy that wants to make you say "yes", and he may hear what he wants to hear, $43,000 for a spec-b though.... that does not add up though. should be around $36,000.
^^^^^have not laughed this hard in months
They start at 34 tho, so he could have transposed the digits. :laugh:
Subytek just talked to Charlie (our GM) who is on the Subaru Dealer Council and it has been said that the Spec C IS NOT coming to the US. It was also said that the salesman that you talked to has been mis-informed or conjured up that info on his own (just in different words).
[Translate: Full of ****.]
Well I can't say that, but that could be the case.
All I know, is what I heard from the mouth of the GM here, who is on the council board for the region. He would know what we are and aren't getting... and the STi Spec C is not on the list of cars we are getting.
Would they bring it over if the buyer offered to pay in cleanest-in-the-state large bills?
In for pics of shattered hopes and dreams.
No. And I know you are probably just joking around. Just incase someone takes this as a serious question... You cannot just import any car over here and expect it to be licensed. As anyone who is a Silvia/Skyline fan knows, importation of a RHD car or a car that is not supposed to be in the US, is pretty much impossible...unless driven illegally.
Not even the cleanest, freshest, largest bills, could import this car legally.
What about the flushest? I'm talking +20 here.
That isn't enough, you need moar flushest(er).
Good job on the PI work, by the way. Nice debunking in here.
So, sorting the BS from facts in this thread, the sedan STi is actually happening for 2010? Can't wait to see the wing they come up with for it.
Not the Case, I've called and talked to Jay 3 times now.
That would be a bummer, I really hope thats not the case.
I'm waiting on a E-mail with the specs I sure hope it's not ^ I won't want to buy it then.....
Yeah is that true?, I haven't heard anything about this?
He probably has a hit out on him from divulging that information already.
The 2010 Impreza STi SHOULD be available in a Sedan if all works out like Subaru has planned. There has been pictures floating around, and it sounds like a few of them are real.
I'm guessing that Jay may be thinking you are talking about the Sedan STi, and not the Spec C... Which we WILL NOT be getting here in the US. Not for 2010 anyway. The Spec is specifically designed with a EJ207, and not the 257. Therefore, we won't ever have a real Spec C. The US would more than likely get a rendered (read: weak sauce) version of it. Suspension would be softer and higher, and the power would be less due to our emission standards.
As the fuel economy standards keep getting stiffer, the amount of turbocharged vehicles produced will decline. For Subaru to bring over a completely different engine/trans setup would be unreal. It's even more unrealistic if you were to see the price tag on it. For anyone that thought 41k was high for a '08-'09 LTD STi, that would be a cheap tag for a Spec C.
Subaru needs direct injection on their cars to keep up in the fuel economy game. Like Ford is doing with their EcoBoost program. Direct Injection coupled with turbo charging averages about 20% better fuel economy than a N/A motor of equal output. With twin scroll and variable geometry turbochargers, the drivability is as good if not better.
What sucks is that Subarus are sold heavily in areas that see lots of snow and inclement weather. Subarus often replace SUV's, and they whould be looked at in that way. You don't see nearly as many Subarus in florida.
I would hope they are at least working on DI.
I'm sure this will make some people cry, but I don't understand why anyone would buy a subaru where it doesn't snow.
If the 2010 sti sedan rumors are true, I can't wait to see it.
Probably because boxer engines are different and kinda neat. Also, the turbo cars respond well to minor modifications and tuning. Too bad most people don't think beyond that when the costs go up exponentially.
But yes, if I lived in Florida, I'd have a Sky Redline right now. Detuned to only 800 hp or so.
Yes yes yes yes yes a million times yes.
Or a Solstice. Same thing, only the Solstice weighs less. :biggrin:
That's kind of what I mean. Not that subaru's are bad, but I think there are better cars if your driving is 95% dry pavement.
But if you do live where it snows (and most of us do) there's no other brand I'd rather have for a daily driver.
The solstice doesn't have a decent opening for a man-sized intercooler though.
Man, I can't wait to taste your tears.
Better hurry up, then since they are canning that pos company otherwise known as Pontiac. I'm sure the wheater fanbois in Fargo are all up in arms that their beloved Grand Prix is going byebye. :laugh:
Whats MNclubGP gonna do :laugh:
Meh, there's enough used ones around that when I'm ready to purchase, I can get one.
I'm not a fan of buying new anyways. In today's car market, buying new is pissing a whole lot of money away...
I dont taste any tears yet either.
^get even more butt hurt than when i asked why anyone would bother to mod a grand prix on fargostreet.com and then got cross linked to some giant GP site?
Its ok. They all go through transmissions like boxer shorts.
That band, radiohead.
I never liked radiohead.
suddenly I have this strange urge for chili
