After debating on whether to buy a new or used WRX for the last few months and constantly checking dealer inventories, I decided to just take a stab at a new 2013 WRX in exactly the configuration I wanted at Tacoma Subaru. Dark grey metallic, premium hatch w/o navi.
I went on Christmas eve and the sales manager was reasonable and in a jolly enough mood to make the sale. I was able to get about a grand below msrp which is less than what edmunds and usaa said was a 'great' price, so I'm happy.
First shot of my new lovely:
Going to get all weather mats, the auto dimming mirror, armrest extension, and rear bumper cover installed when i go in for my first oil change
