    dollar is weak

    it's base msrp isn't much more than the '07

    in the UK, the STi is a 1000 pounds cheaper than the previous one

    I think it is a better car than the old one. Have to see if this chassis is more competitive than the old one.

    Sad, but true. Better to get a per-02 RS and swap drivetrains.

    The new style forester is :greddy:
    I hope the 2010 Legacy isn't all :greddy: and still keep the 6speed.

    new chassis is stiffer and has better suspension

    i guess the GC chassis is lighter

    I don't really care for aesthetics

    reminds me of early 90's Japanese sports cars that were way too expensive, supra, rx7, mitsubishi 3000gt, Nissan's super car :mamoru:. Not enough people were willing to pay for it and i can see history repeating itself with the sti/evo

    Try 35k. Only 400$ more than last generations, This year is the first year that Navigation is an option and you have a choice of wheels, so of course if u load it up it becomes 40K$. FAIL

    exactly...the 40k was with a lot more options. the thing that kills me is the wheels...04-07 got the nice BBS wheels where now they're a $2k option. lame but hey, im sure people will pay for it.

    dunno... everyone I know that likes subie is either an asshole/douchebag.... or a hippie.

    And I don't take advice from douchecanoes or people that haven't showered in a week -- just not my style.

    The rest of the people I know who have/had subies it was their last/only subie. Constantly in the shop.
