Optimus, i think we'll hear about the next gen wrx and gti before the st comes out. All 3 cars will be 2013 models coming out in late 2012. I remember when the US wrx had a 2.0T and everyone seemed happy when it got the extra 0.5 of displacement to match the sti, so I dont know how well received the new 2.0 will be. If the car is smaller and lighter as they say, I suppose it could be a winner. The gti getting 220 hp is less exciting since many gti owners are getting more than that with a simple chip/reflash of the current engine. If i can hold out until late this year, it will be an ST or WRX for me. If i cant wait, it will be a ms3 or the new gen coupe.
