Default Build date of WRX vs. Purchase Date

Just curious - I bought my car in late December, 2001 - the car had 300 miles on it (about 250 from transporting across the state - the dealer made sure I knew it would happen), so the car had 50 miles on it from the original dealer. I looked at the build date on the car - July 2001. I was surprised that the build date was sooo much earlier than when I bought the car. What are other people seeing regarding the difference between purchase date and build-date of their WRXs?

My car was 3 weeks old when I drove it away... But I'm in the very 1st allocation.

Yeah, I got mine in latter end of my dealers first allocation. Wagon built Feb 2001, delivered to me in Seattle Mar 2001.
I think mine was like #28?? built. I'll have to look at the VIN# again. Oh yeah, and 8 miles on the odometer.

Default white wagon anyone, anyone, anyone

Built in July 2001, bought Jan 01 2002. 40 miles on the odometer.

Guess no-one wanted a white wagon. I still think white is second best to the yellow. They make yellow wagons in Japan. Maybe for 03, they'll have some "exciting new colors".

Default What about ECU versions to go with this data?

I'm curious what #s people have on their ECUs.

I have my hands on two WRX ECUs.. one came stock with the car and one is new from subaru. The new one has slightly higher numbers on the sticker and it drives slightly different.

I believe there are 3 gens of ecus so far:

421

422

423

would the last numbers on the ecu, 421 are the ones gettin reflashed the most due to bogus codes.
