Does the cold affect the brain up there? 100 per month would be 1200 per year, not 12,000. It would be very possible if they sold many more Imprezas than anything else. $43million takes about 1900 cars at an avg. price of $22,600. Still, I'd be surprised if the #1 dealer sold over 50% Imrezas over Outback/Legacy. If the #1 did sell more Imprezas than Outback/Legacy, then that is a great sign of potential for SOA to bring more hot cars like they are.
