I guess I'll just order all my parts an forget about it until jan or feb rolls around. No use in getting my panties bunched up over something that's out of my scope of control.
That's a good way to think about it lol. I would do the same but I'm not thinking about putting anything on mine once I have it. I know no one is gonig to believe me for saying that.
I wouldn't doubt the factory would be closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas day and New Year. I know Japanese celebrates Christmas and New Year pretty big. Not so sure about Thanksgiving though.
On the topic of waiting for next year models. What make you think you won't have to wait as long? Lol I'm pretty sure there will be a wait period anyway for WRX/STi as they have became high demand cars with low production. As many already said 1st gen of redesigns usually not the best in term of reliability. I saw the concepts of the newer WRX/STi and I am not sure if that what they'll look like but they're very ugly to me lol.
