1-1.5 weeks depend on how busy they are and what options your car has.

How does one go about ordering a new 2013 STI (or any car for that matter)? I've been to dealerships before and when they did not have the options/color that I wanted, they said all they can do is check nearby dealers and find something "close" to what I wanted. They said they do not take orders for new vehicles? Was that just because I gave off some kind of "noob" car buyer vibe?

I've been saving up $$$ to buy the car outright and only have a little more to go. Was thinking maybe I can get one ordered so it's ready when I'm ready.

Thanks!

May be you were just at a small dealership that not eligible to do custom order. Go to a bigger dealership and I'm sure they can assist you with ordering a car.

How did you get that much information!?!? I got my VIN and ETA (Jan 17) right before the end of the year. I talked to SoA and they couldn't tell me where the car was or even guess at the location. My dealer, and more specifically my salesman, has been even less helpful getting me information.

Ooh, now that's the news I've been waiting to hear! I'm hoping my car was on that same boat, as I have a 1/18 ETA for SoCal. I'll call this morning and get an update...

Damn, maybe not. I called SOA and after waiting on hold for 15 minutes they didn't have any new information. Still scheduled for the 18th.

I probably shouldn't complain considering my entire wait will be about 4 weeks.

Ordered from Capitol Subaru since they came highly recommended. Buying experience was really good compared to the other Subaru dealership in San Jose..at this point I'm going into busy season for my job so I don't have time to make a drive down and back, otherwise I'd hop on that

Super lucky. I was about to place an order and searched pretty much every dealer in California first and found exactly what I was going to order already in the pipeline. Hadn't seen a PBP Hatch with Nav in the 3-4 months or so that I'd been looking. The same day, my boss calls me into his office and tells me I'm getting a pretty nice year-end bonus, so I figured it was meant to be and jumped on it.

That was two weeks ago, and my ETA is in 2 weeks. I seriously can't imagine what it's like for all you guys that did the full wait.

It hasn't been bad at all... until I got the VIN and ETA. Since then I've been going crazy! Prior to receiving the ETA I hardly thought about it!

Before I say this, I want to point out that I am the type of guy who checks UPS every hour to see if there is an update for any package I have coming to me. The STi order is basically the same thing but on a much larger and longer scale. With that said, when my wait started, my sleep schedule became all messed up. I would wake up at 4 am and browse nasioc religously and check my email every 15 minutes even though I knew I would not have any updates. I went to sleep thinking about the STi and I always dreamed about driving it. When I woke up, the first thing I would do was check Nasioc, my E-mail, and look up more reviews of the WRX/STi. I should also mention that I stopped going to the gym when my wait started because of all the anticipation.. I gained 15 pounds.

Now try to top that. I am pathetic as ****.

The wait for the car is a terrible experience. I wanted to cancel my order and purchase the one on the lot but it was sold and there was literally no STi's left in a 200 mile radius. I should learn to be more patient.

That, or they were trying to move inventry on their lots. I have had a few Subaru dealers "try to steer me" to the lot when they had nothing I wanted. Just be adamant and tell them you want to order the car or you will go elsewhere. I would bet you could order a car over the ohone without ever even walking into the stealership.

Lol. I wish I lost weight. I am a college student so my diet consists of fast food. I used to stay in maintenance caloric range by lifting but after ordering the car, I started having lots of exccess calories :/.

Don't worry tho, once I get mah car im going beast mode again!!!
