So far they've only stated that it's SST.

I sure hope they consider a manual model as it would give us Canadians a proper alternative to our overpriced-underoptioned GSRs!! :(

As for the 25k price tag... I'm hoping it'll be less than that. I know, I know... "you're asking for a lot for under 25k"
Although this may be true, the WRX sits under 25k and since the WRX has so much of a better rep than the RalliArt which, for the Lancer, hasn't been much in the past... they'll need a little more incentive to sway the people considering a WRX.

I'm not saying that 20k is appropriate but, something between 23k and 24k would make things a little more interesting against the WRX.

Also, a lot of people keep talking about how 'ugly' the WRX hatch is but, it seems to me that few realize... there's also a WRX sedan option which is priced lower.

Also, this may not be the case in other global markets though... I'm purely speaking of the American market.

Sure the Ralliart doesn't exactly have a good past but with this one for everything that you get...I think 25k is a steal personally..I mean...it the the 4B11 engine, you can't argue with that

Well... one way or another... I'll be saving my lunch moneys and anxiously awaiting professional reviews of this beast. Hopefully, I'll have enough credit and a big enough down payment to not have to pay more than $275 per month for 5 years. Anything more than that and I might as well go ahead and default on my student loans.

If they came out with the 5MT for this car would you get it? I would for mod reasons, seeing as how its a 4B11 engine and how well its responded to mods with the Evo you could hopefully make this Ralliart pretty quick for cheaper than an Evo.

If it were 5/6MT, I'm not sure whether or not I would. I can drive stick but, I've only driven a 5MT 2004 GTO and 99 New Beetle for a total of about 15-20 minutes so, getting a new car with MT is scary for me. Thoughts of killing the transmission come to mind.

I was gonna buy a 5MT Integra for $3500 from a friend but, he backed out because he, much like myself, cannot decide on a car. :p

The 'teg' would have been nice because I would have been able to continue to afford my auto Civic as a backup plan.

Truthfully... modding isn't too big of a thing for me. The way I see it... I'm going from a 115hp Civic to a 235hp pseudo-evo. I'd be happy with it as is. Plus... when it comes down to apartment vs. auto upgrades... girls tend to prefer a place to go other than the back seat of a car. :p
