    We've had a few threads running on this some time ago. I believe the technical correct pronounciation is "ssssssh-ti-er", but here in the States, we settle on "st-eye-er" or "st-i-er".

    It's like people that say "porsh" instead of "porsh-a" for Porsche. I think in America, it gets messed up. I heard everyone calling it "stay-er" throughout the years. However, I know that's incorrect. It's definitely "Schty-er." But as long as you're not speaking near someone from Germany/Austria, I don' t think it matters ;)

    My buddy pronounces it "stay-er" and it drives me nuts! How on earth do you get that from Steyr?
