There is a very long thread going with people who ordered 2013 model WRXs and it seems that most folks ask for the VIN once it is available anyway.
I agree, but imagine you ordered the car with the expectations of 4-6 weeks, then told it was going to be about 12 weeks. Then in a couple of weeks they call and say a car almost just like the one your ordered arrived and you can have it NOW (but pay up for the dealer installs) or wait a few more weeks or months?
I can see WHY people jump on it because they are already waiting and disappointed. If they are financing it then it is probably only a few extra bucks a month for them.
After reading the WRX/STI 2013 order thread, there are people waiting for over 4 months already. So I was wondering if anyone had a similar experience or thought this could possible happen in the Subu community.
