I think they should wait for a dual-clutch style gearbox to be available rather than introduce a stop-gap slushbox.
STI is sacred, don't taint the name.
Look how much harm the Cimmarron did to Cadillac.
Don't do it, Subaru!

Don't do it? They already did it.

I think a high performance CVT makes more sense.

Well...not in the US...yet.
They have FWD in Japan, too.
#29 of 30 Decibel Produced/European Maps
Mar 04, 2010 (3:06 pm)
Recently bought a 2010 STi and was wondering if anyone knows the decibel level of STi w/factory installed SPT exhaust. First time I ever owned a car w/performance exhaust. Second, does anyone know if European map CDs are available for Subaru nav system, dealership doesn't have a clue. Any clues will be helpful. Thanks

I couldn't even tell you how loud the stock exhaust is. It's too quiet, so any increase would be welcome, actually. The GR body is much too quiet compared to the GD. You could probably youtube it and see if anyone has any recordings. You can definitely find recordings of other aftermarket exhausts. I've been playing with the idea of changing my exhaust just so I can hear it!
I don't know if the Nav Unit is the same here as in Europe. You might try looking on the Subaru website of say, Great Britain for some clues. Or even better, go to Subaru.com and ask them. They're very good about getting back to you with answers to obscure questions (I have asked a few. )
