That is exactly what I would do. Except the whole "raise hell" part, lol. Just calmly and firmly ask them. Most the time being nice to people works better than being a raging asshat.

Accessories I purchased:
Popular Package #1
Roof Spoiler
Front Under Spoiler
Impreza Side Sill Plates
Aero Splash Guards
Sport Mesh Grill

I have quite a bit to work with already for getting some compensation for my wait time. When it's all said and done I will let you guys know how it worked out. As of right now two on the list are paid for (1 from the dealer at the start of purchase and 1 by SoA). At least if I don't get the car as fast as I want it will be faster to pay off when I get it

On a side note does anyone know if the remote start works for a 5MT? Obviously the car would have to be in neutral, lol.

Order update on my 2013 DGM 5MT Sport Premium:
Order date was October 8 or 9.
Talked to SoA today and they gave me a VIN! I had emailed the dealer last week and they didn't have it yet, just the VON.

Just when I was starting to contemplate asking what CVT orders were available at my dealership since it seems like MTs take forever... Either that or grab one of the several crosstreks that are coming in.

**First Post on behalf of my sister...

I've been helping her look for a Impreza Limited since Spring/Summer 2012 and we were unable to find one exactly like she wanted so she placed an order in mid-July which made her factory order a 2013MY.

Fast Forward to mid-Nov and she has still not been assigned a VIN.

I went into the dealership and talked to the Sales Manager last Friday who found two built to the exact specs in a matter of minutes --why they weren't trying this themselves is beyond me-- so I had him acquire one of them on the spot.

Anyway, the car arrives at our local dealership today. It's a 2013 Limited in Marine Blue with Moonroof/Nav & Pop Pkg 1.

I will post in the 11+ prices paid thread because I do have some warranty maintenance price questions.

Hopes this helps...

Sounds about right. What a nice holiday gift! Just in time for whatever you celebrate around that time of the year!

I have had no other good news lately. My dealer just updated their impreza stock yesterday on their website and my vin was NOT on the in transit list, even though its supposed to be here on 11/26. I also was told by SoA that I cannot use the $500 credit towards my down payment as I was originally told. I have to use it on accessories only from a first party Subaru dealer. Not the worst news, but not the best news either.

Hope others are improving with their orders!

man, i really feel bad for you guys. i took a leap of faith on my first subaru and got it early when they first came out along with several others, we bought them all under invoice. not sure how but we did. haggle for a while though. but i can see with the increase demand, dealers would be hesitant to discount off MSRP. If you dont budge and buy them someone else will.

I would search other dealerships and check. It is true they are in high demand but you should still get something even if it's just a little bit. My dealership I am going threw wouldn't budge on the MSRP but did give me the popular package #1 included for free (Roughly a $600 package) so that helps. I figured I wanted that so either way it was giving me something and no other dealership would budge on anything else and this was back in August. I would imagine it might be the same or worse. Good luck, but I suggest talking to other dealers before paying full price.

my sport limited was suppose to come with the nav/camera but the standard premium stereo was installed sighs. I have to wait to get that installed.

Anyway, here's a couple photos of my new car with ski rack on

Well, well... I went in today to order my accessories.

Guess what I was blindsided with?






Sorry for the low-light graininess (all) and blurriness in the last shot. The sun went down around 5 tonight and I didn't get to the dealer until about 4:30 when it was already getting dark. I triple checked the vin and its mine indeed.

Sadly, due to circumstances out of my control I cannot pick it up just yet.
Ordered:
* Sport Mesh Grill
* Splash Guards
* front license plate bracket
* Center Console Tray
* Rear bumper cover (XV Crosstrek accessory- NOT the applique)

Parts, tax and install is right about $600 on the nose, so with the $500 SoA credit I'll end up paying $100 out of pocket. However, it's worth it, because the parts will be warranted. If I installed them myself, the dealer said they would NOT be warranted. Accessories won't arrive until 11/28 (4 months to the day) and that's right around when I'll probably be able to (hopefully) take it home.

Anyone else have any good news?

This is true, however, it's still @ the dealer.
