I ordered mine the 21st too with an ETA of January. You're getting my hopes up if it is true that they'll come by December.

The knock offs can be anywhere from crap to pretty decent. Some of the molds were made wrong so they need heat to get them to fit, some are close to oem, just a matter of the source. If you look on ebay (which it looks like you have), you'll see a lot of clones at varying price points. Kinda just up to you, but unless you buy oem, plan on buying better mounting hardware to go with the lips as the hardware that comes with them is notorious for being terrible.
Ahhhhh decisions, decisions.

I like (leaning to) the Areowerk one that sticks out a little more and have seen how the drill more holes and add #10 SS bolt/washers to secure it better to bumper.

The 2nd pic with WRB has metal tabs for the OEM mounting and is half the price.

Both seam to made of same material but the Areowerk is not made in China from their site.

I think I found a couple of those in my searches. I searched, Detroit, Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh

Edit: Just saw you're out in Iowa

Sorry I meant avoid the lips that stick out. I was fortunate enough to learn from others on both cars, getting a lip before cracking the bumper on a surprise curb, snow wad, rock, etc. IMO the OEM is the best. The quality is so much better, the fit, hardware, etc.

Interesting.... I called SOA today and they stated "its too soon to really tell you anything. But plan on waiting 10-12 weeks."

They asked me to call back in 4 weeks and then they should have an exact ETA on the car ordered.

Actually, I placed an order on 9/14 and after a week later I visited dealer to add one more option but she said that was not able to add it, a few minutes later she found that my order already scheduled to get here on 10/10 it's too early to get her on 10/10 so I re-ordered on 9/21 ETA January 2014 but she said that it would be before December we will see...

I'm waiting till Friday to follow up with my dealer. They should have their new allocation data by then. I ordered 8/8. When I checked in early sept they said it showed a nov delivery. I followed up last week and he said it showed a dec delivery. Wtf??? He said that's unusual to be that late, it's probably still November. I hope he has a more firm date of November this Friday, if not I won't be a happy camper.

The lady I talked to is new and said she doesn't have any other information except the December ETA. She said she would try to find out some more information and call me back. If you guys get her, her name is Dot. She wants me to contact the dealer for more information and I told her the last time I called SOA the other person I spoke to said to call back and they could give me a more accurate time frame. Wish someone else would have answered that seemed like they knew what they were talking about.

Yikes, seems like long lead times all around.

I put in my order last Thursday (9/26) and when ordering the dealer said that they actually had the exact model (5dr WRX Premium in WRB) in their Oct allocation, he would just have to configure with the options I wanted. Not entirely clear on how allocation works (quick searches tell me its based on sales of the dealership in question, etc) but I was gonna wait til later this week to follow-up.

Anyone here have experience with this? Does Oct allocation mean it'll show up sometime in October or should I expect a January delivery? Either way, I'm pretty stoked, can't wait til it gets in!

Flemington Subaru - I'm located in central jersey and they seemed to be one of best dealers in the area. Competitive pricing and very upfront with everything. We'll see if it stays that way throughout the process...

Also curious, although I'm way more north. Ordered from Somerset 9/7. SWP 5 door WRX premium.

EDIT: just saw the response. Flemington not too far from Somerset. Wonder what my dealer has allocated for October.

Dealer I talked to couple weeks back said same thing. That its unusually late.
I talked to someone that talked to soa couple weeks back about an order placed beginning of August. They told him to wait and call back in November. That all indications pointed to an actual December delivery.

Just got off the phone with a lovely young lady Dana from SoA. She said still showing December for delivery but no other info. Hopeing it comes for November but figured since I live in the north and they come with summer tires im not in a rush. Might as well order a set of Blizzaks to have ready..lol 14 DGM EXV-10
