    Thinking about getting back in to a Soobie

    I've been thinking over the last year that I would like to get back into a Subaru. Especially an STi Hatch... I was thinking that (financially) spring/summer 2014 would be a good time to look but now it seems like there won't be a 5 door STi offered anymore though.

    Would you consider maybe a recent low mileage used one? (Not that I had one, just throwing the thought out...)
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Yes I would. Just not sure if I can find one unmolested.

    Im sure you could find an unmolested sti, or at least just a stage 2 '11-'13. Seems like that'd be your only option if they're not making hatches anymore and you want the hatch.

    I think you'll be successful in your endeavor. Go look at EBAY right now. Couple of 2013 STI hatches with warranty. May even score a 2014 around spring. If you're going to drop 30K + a plane ticket won't be out of the question to be up front and personal with the car... IMHO.

    The Subaru website still let's you build a 2014 5-door STi so maybe there is hope for me.

    Carmax is a good place to find unmolested cars. WRXs and STIs are somewhat rare there though.

    Git on it!

    Who knows though. Maybe when they release the STi there will be a hatch version. Seems like they would want to keep a hatch considering it is the base they have been using for their WRC cars. Who knows though. Good luck no matter what course of action you decide on!

    My understanding is that they will continue with the current model STI for 2015. Only the WRX has been updated. Updates to the STI come in 2016.

    Idk. I have been secretly lusting a 5 door STi for a while but I may wait a little ....just to see what comes next.

    I would hate to take the plunge and then they come out with the 2015 eleventy billion hp STi that totally out performs super cars comes equipped with a Swedish bikini team standard, runs on household trash or sea water, morphs into an F16 by flipping a switch, and is priced at under $20k.

    I doubt it. If anything like this happens, it would be 2016 and we'd heard rumors and seen some form of teasers already. And even if they do come out with an STi with much more HP, so what? 305HP is not for kidding around! But that bikini team part is... well desired...
