General Discussion / 2015+ STI thoughts?
« on: February 07, 2017, 06:09 PM »
Thanks for the reply, I haven't made a decision yet. Yes I will definitely be driving co-workers and clients in the vehicle, I am okay with it being a little stiff. If I go with an STI the base has no spoiler which IMO reduces the boy racer look. I have not driven one as they are not in inventory, I did drive the new WRX.

I recently looked at a new CLA250 and it was decently equipped, handled well and rode a little on the stiff side but was a firm/tight ride. I'm just not comfortable driving a Mercedes as people tend to stereotype even thought it's a bare bones 40K Mercedes.

As per the the local subi dealer, I have untill mid march to factory order an STI.

I don't have any insight to owning an STI, but I do know leases...

My thoughts on leasing: 0/10 would not do again.

gif representation of how you think leasing is gonna go:

What issues are you having with your lease? I generally purchase a new car every 18-24 months, depreciation is brutal. I am also wanting lease for tax purposes.

Have you thought about the Golf R? I think its more comparable to a STI than the GTI is.

Yes you're right, GTI is a fair comparison with the WRX. The Golf R does look interesting, my local dealer doesn't have one on their lot to see / drive.

Haven't posted here in quite sometime, I am considering leasing a new 2017 STI base. I have never owned a Subaru before, the combination of AWD and turbo gets me excited, ive had a 2011 RA and it was rather satisfying.

Looking for any owners on here that can give me their two cents on them?

This will be a daily driver that will be used for business use, I do not plan on modding, I am looking for a very fun daily right out of the box. I did consider the new WRX, I found the interior a little too basic and boring for my taste. I am aware that the STI is a very dated engine and has poor fuel economy compared to the WRX. My employer pays all my fuel so that is not an issue. Plus the sound of UEL is money!

I am considering a 48 month lease at 24kms/yr

Other options I have thought about include the Focus ST and VW GTI 5 door. The Focus is not refined enough for my taste and is just a little bit too "young" for work. The VW is very nicely equipped but the fwd thing is a the draw back.
