    I did not know that you could use the rebate if you bought on Amazon? Also, how is the lyric?

    Pretty sure there's no sti that costs $60K. The top sport tech package will run you about $48K I think.

    As long as the receipt shows that it's a qualifying model.

    $51,204. Guess they came down in price. So my bad, it's only about 15k over priced not 25k. Doesn't really change anything.

    You expect an sti to be priced lower than a honda accord? You crazy.

    It's a piece of shit with a ticking time bomb of a turbo engine slapped in to entice teenage kids. Yes I expect it to be priced accordingly if they want any of my money.

    Regardless, none of it relevant. Zhao made a joke about me being too baller for a winter beater. And I am, that's why I have a brand new Lexus for winter. But if I was legit baller I would be winter beating a GT-R or a Velar. Actually I wouldn't be winter beating anything because I won't ever see snow again once I'm legit balling.

    Did a Subaru give you a STI? You seem awfully upset at them. Maybe touched you in the wrong place?

    The motor is actually fairly decent, considering its a 15 year old design. Completely stock, they are quite reliable. Do the EJ257 motors have issues. Yes, absolutely, but its pretty overblown overall. No different than the DSM years back in the 90's, everyone complaining about them being junk. But they weren't, ricer idiots bought them, cranked up DA BOOST, and blew them up because DUH.

    The car itself isn't bad either. End of the day, what is expensive is the drivetrain. Please point out another 6 speed, manual transmission that is awd, has an electronic programmable center differential, in a longitudinal application that can withstand 800hp from the factory, put into a chassis that is decent and currently one off for the platform?

    Oh, it was the Evo X (except that was transverse which is much easier to package). And those cost $45k to $50k all day long and were discountinued for a car that was truly a piece of crap except the drivetrain. You can walk out the door with a STi for under $40k, and it comes almost "fully loaded" as a base model.
