    Final Edition WRX STI for Europe

    Look what’s coming to the garage beside me soon. I don’t care that I hate their way of doing business but I’m up there and sitting it it!

    Final European Edition. Sad to see them leave Europe though.

    While it's sad to see, it was always going to happen Europe is not where it's at now ,

    Very disappointed it's not something a bit special , a set of 6pot brembos , and red seat belts. Doesn't really cut it for a limited edition car .

    Yes it's limited to 150 cars with an in car badge but it's a very weak effort and last minute effort to do something .

    Would love a 2018 final edition sti but the yearly road tax At 2380 makes its unrealistic , the asking price Is not that bad , as it's the same as any other 60/70k car will drop like a stone .


    anyone want to buy a spec c so I can rustle up the deposit

    I don't think it's that, I'd say it's more the fact that they are about 30k sterling and 3/400 p/a to tax, we're as over here they will be 60k euro here and 2350 p/a to tax.

    Imagine how many would sell over here if you could buy a brand new sti for 35k euro and only 500 euro to tax p/a.

    A new brake would only be about 27k euro and 300 to tax.

    The market is here it's the government stopping the market
    as Marcus Gronholm once said "up the arse of timo"...

    Its sad to see it really. Called into a subaru dealer in the states a year or two ago a new wrx sets u back around 27k USD and an sti about 4 k more and they are selling them like hot cakes. I told the dealer about the crazy road tax situation here and he couldnt believe it. Road tax there is about 300 dollars per annum and this decreases as the car gets older and the value of the car depreciates. Now the million dollar question will this car be worth more in ten+ years time or not. Its the limited 'final edition' but is it cult enough like a 22b rb5 etc.......

    ya was in California last year couldnt get over the amount of the new ones i saw.
    If it is the true end of the WRX STi (which i don't believe it is) than maybe it will be a collectable car, with only 150 coming to UK & Ireland then it is a very limited car. Who knows.

    It has very little over the standard Sti to make it stand out from the crowd . Also and I’m not having a go here but all special edition cars that came from the factory had 2.0 jdm engines in them apart from the 2004 forester Sti on and the legacy S402 .

    As was said I think there will be more Sti cars built it’s not just going to stop

    will it be worth more in 10 years . No I’d the Anser

    price = 37000 pounds uk
    ireland = 67000 euros

    in ten years it’s s 14-18k car at best and might climb for there. But I doubt it for what is still a standard
