Get the current STI now or next year
« on: April 02, 2007, 05:48:39 PM »
I’m in a pleasant predicament at the moment. I am set to buy a Subaru Impreza WRX STI within the month. There are some circumstances that are holding me back namely the 2008 model, my US culinary internship and my grad studies.

The 2008 model’s exterior looks so tamed and appears like a bad copy of the Mazda3 among other things. If I were to wait for the WRX it would come by September and the STI early next year. The sorta bad part is that the STI will be a 5 door hatch. The good thing with the newer model is that everything's updated but at a higher price point what with inflation and forex.

A lot dont know this but to supplement my business I’m studying towards being a chef and that being the case I will have the chance for a paid internship for 6-12 months. As much as having the chance to work in a more challenging environment this would take me away from my hometown and the car. The same goes for my plans to take grad studies right after my internship extending my stay to a total of 2-3 years. The US internship & grad studies isnt 100% sure as I am still thinking if it is the right thing for me but I’m heavily leaning towards it. The chance to experience working in the US is also golden in my eyes. I absolutely have no plans in living in the US as I love the Philippines too much.

So what do you think? Should I get the current STI now or wait until I come back?

If you seriously plan to go to the US for school, then just get one there. There will be serious deals on the present body GD series now that the all new car has been announced at the New York Auto SHow.  If you decide on the new one, the STI model will be launched at the Tokyo Motor Show in October so expect the STI in US dealers by early 08
