haha yeah, I didn't even know the orders were ending. Got in just in the nick of time.

BTW to all of you that call SOA for your ETA or VIN, do you speak to a representative or is it a automated system? Is this just a service they provide or do you have to work to get your info?

You speak to a rep. Ware do you live tho? If you live in NewEngland they cant give you an update, SoNE has a diff tracking system them SoA. If you live any ware else they will be able to give you updates over the phone.

Also you need your VIN or VON.

lots of vehicle carriers coming into Baltimore port. there is already one unloading at the terminal that Subaru uses. of course a few other auto makers use that terminal too but its getting to be about the time one would expect the ship to come in for the next allocation.

i read a bunch of info on the company that handles Subaru's cars at port and it states that they process order cars first, hot selling dealer cars second and restock cars third.

Default 2012 STI Hatch

I have been eagerly reading these post on the ships arriving at port! New spin to a car thread. I put a deposit down on a 2012 STI hatch last Sunday at Manchester Subaru. This car is "in transit" and I have the vin. I am a long time mustang guy and I am making the switch to the STI, I hope it lives up to my expectations ?? I have also been reading many of the forum threads getting up to speed on the STI and my eyeballs are about to fall out of my head. Not sure when the new car will show up but hoping soon. Am I the oldest guy on here ??? at 63 ? My current ride is a GT500.

^ welcome to the Subaru family.
i almost bought a 2009 shelby gt500 back in early 09 but ended up sticking with Subaru.

i hope the STi lives up to your expectations as well. i think the fun thing will be when we get some snow and you realize your performance car can still perform and even more importantly it can still perform safely.

-Location: VA
-Model: 2012 WRX Limited Satin White Pearl
-Ordered Placed: 4/16/12
-Received VON: 4/16/12
-Received VIN: 5/2/12
-ETA: 5/9/12
-Car Arrived: 5/3/12
-Car Acquired: 5/4/12

I guess I got really lucky. On a side note, someone else ordered an exact twin of my car: '12 White Sedan Limited. Backed out of the deal at the last minute so it's still up for grabs if anyone in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia is still looking.

So I let a WRX slip through my hands at Van Bortel today. I haven't ordered, just so happened to have called and sales manager told me there was one there. 2012 WRX Hatch base in black. =[

Someone got to it literally 3 minutes before me. O well. Waiting game begins for me.

If you want to track your car it's easy.

First keep checking the inventory page on manchester subarus page. The car will get a stock number if it has been scanned at port and loaded on a truck. When the car gets there the "in transit" will disappear of the car. Your dealer should then be calling you.

All subarus for NewEngland come in at Quanset point in north kingston RI. Go to shiptracker.co and filter out everything but cargo ships, you can google the ships names and see if they were vehicle carriers.

A few pages back i posted that 2 subaru ships docked on thusday into friday for 18 hours. 20 hours later i got a call from my dealer saying my car was on a truck. All of manchesters wrxs are in transit, I'm thinking alot were on the ships that docked friday, keep checking the page, I'm sure it will be soon.

This goes for others that are looking to track there cars or to pass time while waiting. The inventory pages are updated automatically by subaru 24/7 so keep checking.

I finally got mine today! It's my first Subaru as well. Ordered a DGM WRX base sedan with deck lid spoiler. Love it! Only had 8 miles on the odometer. Ordered 4/21 and it arrived in 10 days....so I was extremely lucky. Good luck to all of you in getting yours soon.

How is it possible for people to get their cars in only 10 days? Doesn't it take that long just to be floated to the US?

their cars are ones that are already over here, or on the way, as dealer restock cars. they just happen to fill an order so SOA directs these "floating ownerless" cars to fill orders.

people who wait long wait because our cars have to go through the build process and then get shipped. and to get to east coast from Japan takes roughly 30-40 days by boat. at least thats how long it looks to take.

That's exactly what happened to me. I originally wanted PBP. Dealer commented that it may take a long time for that to be built and shipped over. I guess SOA needs to have a bunch of orders for that specific color, because I'm sure they're not gonna just build one car. So choosing DGM apparently was common enough (and it was a base) that it was already over here. If I chose something else, I'd likely be waiting another 8 weeks or so.
