I went and checked out the new STi in Oakville at Budd's Subaru today and I think it only comes one way in Canada. The vehicles I looked at had the BBS wheels and nav..

I know it is a bit off topic, but it may very well determine the pricing for the Canadian Evo X! Since Mitsubishi did say they will price it competitively against the STI! So the good news it, we know for sure now that we are not paying more than 45k for the MR! I wonder if 45k is the base price or it includes BBS rims + navi...Subject: WRX STI Pricing
We’re please to announce that the 2008 Impreza WRX STI pricing has been finalized and approved.
Please take note of this important schedule:
·Pricing memo will be sent in dealer mail Monday January 14, will arrive to dealers on Tuesday January 15
·Official pricing announcement to the public will be at the Montreal Auto Show, Thursday Jan 17 at 14:00
·Cars will be released early next week
With all the of new features along with enhanced driving dynamics and refinement, the new STI is really so much more car than it’s predecessor. Take for example just some of the improvements over the last model:
* A 12 horsepower increase to 305HP and 290 lb-ft of torque now available lower in the rpm range
* New Multi-mode Driver Controlled Centre Differential (DCCD)
* New Multi-mode Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system and Traction Control System (TCS)
* GPS DVD-based navigation system and monitor system with colour touch-screen display
* Front dash integrated DVD entertainment system with 7” tilt adjustable screen and digital sound technologies
* SIRIUS® Satellite Radio (Free 3 month trial)
We think the STI will be a great competitor against other sports cars and a great value: We’ve reduced MSRP by $4000 compared to last year’s model! The MSRP for the 2008 STI will be $44,995.00
I hope you are wrong...You might think that mitsu would price the MR according, but i doubt it for some reason. I really hope they do but I bet u'll see the GSR near that price with the MR being closer to 50. But once I hope im wrong
We don't get no stinking SSS packages!!!If Mitsu wants to make the price competitive.. then the base GSR should be in the range 41-43k. With SSS package it should be no more than $45k. Cause if it more than that... I can see alot of potential Canadian customer opting for a fully loaded STI for $45k
I just wished the STI included freight and pdi for $45K. Maybe you can find a dealer that will take pity on you and give a $1,500 discount off the 08 STI MSRP (good luck with that!). I do agree, this was a move in the right direction for Subaru WRT pricing in Canada, but, as expected, they didn't go all the way. And in the end we are still left frustrated!!!
HELL of a deal you got there!I just got $1500 off MSRP for my STI! Now I just have to wait too see what the EVO X will be priced at before I take delievery of the 08 STI. But at this price it's going to be hard to beat STI's Value.
I am too shallow to own a STIyep.. if you want the person I dealt with... I can PM you with da details. I pretty much went to all the dealerships and this was the best deal I negotiated.
Congrats, that covers the freight and pdi! At least we know some dealers are being flexible! Did you pay cash, finance or lease? If you don't mind please PM me to let me know where you got this deal.I just got $1500 off MSRP for my STI! Now I just have to wait too see what the EVO X will be priced at before I take delievery of the 08 STI. But at this price it's going to be hard to beat STI's Value.
Very very soon you will have your Evo X. If you play your cards right you might be able to get a deal, too. Maybe not $1,500 off but...something.I am too shallow to own a STI
So i see you have changed your sign. What other car are you likely to buy? STI?Very very soon you will have your Evo X. If you play your cards right you might be able to get a deal, too. Maybe not $1,500 off but...something.
