So I ordered my STI back on Oct 20th and they gave me a 10-week expected wait. The good news is that I have a VIN and ETA for 12/31, just like they told me.
Now there is a dealer (about 2 hours away) that HAS the exact car that I wanted, but would NOT trade with my dealer or even match the price. They said they can sell it for MSRP in their city so they don't EVER negotiate below MSRP.
That same car has been now sitting on his lot of 8 weeks now and he still has NOT sold it, and I am still waiting for my car, which is expected to arrive on 12/31.
So frustrating to know that a car, just like the one you ordered, is just a short drive away at another dealership (for over $3k more) and they won't budge.
So I wait....12/31 is not that far away....
