I was just thinking about this yesterday. I've wanted a wrx/sti for about 8 years and I just ordered one on 8/15. I didn't even look at any other cars. I didn't even test drive one. I, only recently, realized that there are SO many other model and manufacturers and options out there. The first thing I did when I was interesting in buying was come here and do my research. I keep joking with my girlfriend that I should cancel my order and get a minivan instead. Does everyone else just go to Joe Schmo dealership and say they want "a car" and the salesman just recommends things? I can't imagine driving home a car that I had no knowledge about prior to walking in the dealer's door.

It was a hard adjustment basically coming from an 11 WRX to this. I think I'll have a WRX again, but probably not til next gen.
I've honestly been pleased with my experience with Hyundai. My girlfriend has an 08 base sonata and it's a pretty decent car.

So yeah I'm tracking the Gunma-built (impreza/forester/xv) Vehicles-In-Transit allocation stock on my dealer's website. An Impreza went from Vehicle-In-Transit to In-Stock today!!!!! Clearly that means my WRX was also on the same truck!

My salesman gets in at 3pm. Don't worry I'm braced for sad banana mode

No way, just be like me and have a minivan and a WRX...or avoid ever getting a minivan if you can. Hope to get rid of mine in about 3 years.

Quad Cities IA/IL (so yes, west of Rockford). I was just within the 200 miles to buy from Mike at Evanston, which I was going to do until my local dealer actually gave me a competitive offer. I liked Mike a lot better, but I couldn't justify the distance for the same price I still strongly recommend anyone in the area buy from him, he's a stand up guy!

Ditto. I am too excited. I was practicing stick yesterday on my friends hawkeye wrx. My excitement level jumped 100 folds seeing how different an AWD Turbo is.

Sigh..

My jealousy grows stronger by the minute. People getting their cars that ordered the same time as me. Mine is supposedly still not scheduled until December. Could have had it already if I wanted a Limited...

BTW, I emailed SOA my VON and her reply was that she has a call into the dealership and will let me know when she hears back. WTF?? Really? SOA is checking on my order status with my dealership? Shouldn't that be the other way around?

Funny there are like 6 people posting in this thread regularly that will all be on this same truck that is 10/8. I am totally taking a picture of all of them together on the truck.

do it! I'd save that picture for sure.

I kept waiting for the call today, ugh. I'm really going to be checking my phone every hour tomorrow at work!!

The closer it gets, the worse it is! It doesn't help to see people getting their orders all around! I hope this truck guy is popping speed and driving through the night!








(last part was in jest)

So I called Subaru of America to check and see if the dealer put the order through, and they did. The nice woman on then other end even offered to call me every two weeks to keep me updated on the status of the order. I thought that was very courteous of her. GO SUBARU!!

Old car (2005 Honda Civic):


WRX odometer just off the truck:


New car (2013 WRX limited DGM):


I went over on my lunch break to look at it, it had just gotten off the truck. It was dirty from the trip, obviously still has plastic on it and was getting rained on in the 50 degree weather...and still it looks awesome.

I can't wait to see it tomorrow when it's sunny and has been cleaned, detailed and is officially mine!!! I'll post a couple better pics after I have it home...

No go. SoA confirmed that they have to check through my dealership. When I asked him why the dealer wouldn't check through them since it is their boats on the water, he said some regions are done that way. Whatever that means. So I guess I am in one of the crap regions.

Yeah. My salesman told me the exact same thing. I have been called once in almost a month and a half. And that was because he was returning my call.

I will

Told the sales guys that if the truck comes when I am not here to get a picture...those odds are very slim as I pretty much live here
