we did order nav on ours...it was the only option we added. Has anyone from subaru confirmed that these are causing the delays? I would just cancel the nav as well if that was the holdup.

Unfortunately I had a customer fall through on one of the cars I had come in for them.

If anyone reading this is close to Chicago, and wants a Plasma Blue 5-door base with only Fog Lights, please PM me.

If you look at my posts I've got pictures of mine in this thread back a few pages I picked mine up last friday and am loving it, the leather interior is very nice! I am also super happy with the DGM color, it's sleek and sexy but not quite black

Yea, I know. I saw yours. Looks nice!

I had a base 2011 hatch briefly, that I had actually bought from Mike in Evanston. It was fun but wasn't "nice enough" for me inside. I got out for basically what I paid. Now I'm craving the fun again

Same here. My original ETA was 10/12 and then it got bumped to 10/8. So I guess by original standards it's still not late. And if that's the thought process...at least it's not November

Just got some good news from my dealer! My order is filled I finally got my VON. Below is the email he sent me.

2013 STI SWP (5 door)
Wheel locks, A.W. mats, cargo tray, security shock sensor, A.D. Mirror/compass.

Beard Subaru: Hyannis, MA
Ordered: 9/29
VON: 10/10
VIN: *TBA*


"Hello Alex,
I checked today and the order has been filled and slated for allocation number 1114 which is next month. The vinkey is ********. We're making progress and now it's just a waiting game."

DXV01
Impreza 5D WRX STI 6MT
B8A|H8B|K8D|M8F|R8D||||||||||| - 09/29/2012Y - 10/10/2012 - ******** - FILLED - 1114 - WHI - WHI - 500 - Credit


I'm so excited, this will be my first brand new car, my 3rd Subaru and second STI.

Mike, *subaru employee order thread guy*

Can you chime in here and enlighten me on how the allocations work? I know Subaru of new england does things a bit different but going by the email above does that mean I could expect delivery towards the end of NOV?

Or does the allocation of NOV mean I should expect a delivery in DEC?

Thanks!

- Alex

Sounds about right, walking into the dealer thinking about canceling my order and buying the wrb 5dr hatch sti they had in stock.... But someone had JUST bought it about 5 minutes Before I asked! Bought it on the phone too!


although he gave me a better date ETA of mid to end of November till I get mine, said I was 1 of 7 other wrx/sti on order. Mine was the only one with a eta I think... (ordered 9/10/12)

I should have never asked, now I'm getting more
Antsy... More so than getting married on oct 20! J/k good luck to all!

Yeah, my family has a small beach house in town that we all share during the summer.
Initially I got a couple quotes from a dealer near my home town (Planet Subaru), then another near my work in RI (Balise Subaru).

Planet was low balling me on my trade, and refused to go below invoice or include any options. So I walked away. A week later I called Balise and they promised a better deal but he needed to crunch numbers and would call me back...(He never called back), but atleast they had already looked at my trade from when I was checking out BRZ's and were willing to give me a good value.

In retrospect its a good thing they didn't call back...

...that same night I was texting my sister (recently bought a 2012 Impreza from Beard Subaru) and she suggested contacting her sales guy.

We'll he emailed me the night around 11pm! I told him what I wanted to pay and what I expected for my trade. Two days later he emailed me back with a better deal then what I asked for. I just needed to swing by and have them look at my 04 STI.

They loved it, and offered to lock in my trade value reguardless of how many more miles I put on it while waiting for the new car to come in.

So we wrote it all up, locked in the new car price, and trade value and signed for it. Basically all thats left is to work out the finance amount and how much I'm going to put down.

As far as I know...It the only STI on order that far pass the Canal.

Beard Subaru is a very small dealer, but Atlantic Subaru in Bourne is much MUCH larger and I assume they have some orders for WRX's and a few STI's.

I think it because these buyers already have an idea of what they want.

I remember watching many a Toyota salesman fail in my Toyota days. At the same time others made a killing. It's definitely not for everyone.

There's a lot of stuff on there that you could remove to save some cash. Maybe even find 3rd party replacements for that are cheaper better. Things like bushings and short shifter, carbon fiber trims, the sub
