Kind of funny seeing how some people have ordered Impreza's later than I, yet already have delivery dates and vins.
The orders are not fulfilled on a first come first served basis. Last year for the '12s I had my order in the day ordering opened up. Didn't receive my car until 5-6 weeks after the first cars started being delivered. Many of whom placed their orders 6-8 weeks after I did based on their posts on here. Just remember much of this has to do with logistics and delivery to specific dealerships. My dealer is on the smaller side, so most likely were pushed further behind by those with larger ordered, even though my order was placed on day #1.
