Default Blue WRX Availability in Calgary - NIL

I visited our 2 Calgary dealers today. The bigger one has one red WRX, and two silver WRX's. The smaller dealer has one white WRX and two blue WRX's (one of the blue cars is outfitted with wild rally stripes, 17" rims, front rear and side effects packages and a couple of engine mods - add $6K).

When asked how long to get another blue WRX the answer at both dealers was September!?!? The smaller dealer also stated that the blue wagon would be quicker to get.

Is the supply that dry in Western Canada? Am I just getting a line from the dealers? This does not bode well for negotiating anything off the MSRP and would make for a long summer to wait to buy a new blue WRX that long.

Advice anyone?

BTW, the smaller dealer is confirming the MY03 Spec R1 limited edition and have a spec sheet detailing the additions to it from the base WRX. Nothing seemed different from the other posts in the News and Rumour forums.

Nothing major, one was a muffler change. I'd have to check again but it did not leap off the page.

They are finally finishing the 2002 run..... I would never buy a subaru over the summer cause they are running out....

I remember when I bought my RS in 1999 (April and took delivery in May)..... There was many more 99RS sold in Canada..... till they started to receive the 2000 in late August....

This isn't like Chevy or Chrysler where they have 50 units of each car on the lot......

Shop around or wait for 2003's......

dealer mods are expensive as hell. $6k for their "factory" options is not worth it.

I bought my RS in early june 99, and they had to ship a car out from vancouver for me because they didn't have one in the color I wanted in stock, and I got one of the last silver RS's available in canada at that time until the 2000s came out 2 months later. The run for the 2002 year is ending and the supply is scarce, since the 2003s won't be out for a few months yet. You might try the place in red deer, but it isn't that likely they'll have once since they are a REALLY tiny dealer. If you are willing to make the trip, you could try Rally Subaru in Edmonton.

Do you mind sharing what kind of deal you got? I get the impression here in Calgary that it's MSRP or nothing on the WRX.

BTW, Centaur Subaru in Calgary has a white one in stock, they've tinted the windows with sliver/chrome look on the lower half of the rear 3 windows, and added a pinstripe and the words "WRX 227 hp" on the sides. The sales guy told me the white ones are more difficult to move so hopefully you can bargain on it.

Thanks for the info!! Just to confirm that it was a blue sedan, correct? So that makes 2 left in Southern Alberta - I better make a deal soon or it's no rex until September.

I woudn't mind the drive to the Hat to pick it up - I drove to Drumheller to buy my Justy a few years back.

Here it is, brand new sitting at Centaur Subaru (Calgary). 1.800.668.3128. The rep I've been talking to is Ray Mason. Hey maybe he'll give me a referral fee!

You can sort of see the lower chrome tint on the windows. Send me your email address for more pictures.
