Where is everyone parking their new cars after you get them?

Who's living in apartments/condos?
Who's has a house? Garage or no garage?

I'm just curious because not long after I moved into my old apartment complex just over a year ago my 04 STI was keyed and over the year suffered 2 mystery dents. I chalked it up to careless neighbors and the punk kids that live in the area, walking through the complex, to and from school.

I just moved to a new apartment in a less residential area, closer to the highway, away from the suburbs and schools. I had previously lived here for 2 years with no dents or vandalizm.

Heres to hoping the new STI doesn't draw to much unwanted attention...I figure the white exterior will be less likley to be keyed vs. a shiny well waxed java black pearl...or am I dreaming?

I only have a gravel area behind the house I rent that I park in. The area can be bad at certain times within a few block radius. I got the shock sensor, although I'm wondering if the sensitivity is all the way up by default. I'm just hoping nothing bad happens. I also got SWP and I think it will attract the least attention.

I figure there's not too much sense worrying a bunch over it. If something is going to happen then it will. The chance I'll be around when it does is very slim.

Can we all agree when we finally crap our pants and say "ITS HERE!!!!!" That we put what the ETA was? Gives us folks who are waiting a little hope when we see our fellow same day ETA'ers getting their cars...

Oh and congrats dstorm...

My girlfriend has agreed to park her car outside this winter so I can park the new scoobie in the garage right next to my project car (supercharged Integra).

She's pretty awesome. But the deal is that I have to drive her to the train station (about a block away) in the AM when it snows. More than happy too, good thing I got heated seats

Looks like it had a long, dirty journey!





I'll take the DSLR over once it's cleaned up for better pics. Will get a paint close up.

You're very welcome. The whole process ran through my mind for years and I couldn't not be anxious once it started to become reality. You helped everything go more smooth and stress-free than I could have imagined.

Try not to stress out too much over everything lately. Everyone here appreciates all you do to help us.

I just found out my car was orignally scheduled for 10/08, but now has an ETA of 10/29. Were the 75 on hold cars scheduled for 10/08?

My order date was 08/24, for a WRX base hatch in WRB.

Could be any day.

Dang. I wonder what is going on with mine then if Mike has already gotten his 10/8s in.

There are no bananas sad enough to express my emotions.

It will probably show up Monday, and I'll have to wait until Friday to pick it up. It'll be tough, gotta work to pay for the new ride.

where did you order from?

also, for anybody waiting, my car was ordered officially on 8/15. my first ETA was 10/15 and quickly improved to 10/8. A few of us Evanston 10/8 orders showed up early(5th), not mine. My order came in with one other car on the exact date of the improved ETA! (10/8 )

Garage in my house. Only have to worry about the kids scratching it. BUT I had a scare last night, my wife took the car to go play volleyball and after it was done I got a text that said, "Wow, I didn't know the bumper was so low!" I'm thinking she hit a parking curb, or leaving the parking lot is steep and she bottomed out. I keep texting her and she's not responding. Finally she gets back to and said she didn't hit anything and just saw how close it was to the curb. I still checked the bumper when she got home.

This is an update from SoA for an original 10/8 eta:

Thank you for your email response. We are very sorry that a specific location for your order is not available. The order process is very detailed and involves many logistics including shipment from Japan. This process takes time and Impreza orders are taking between 12 and 16 weeks currently.
There is certainly an upside to your order specifically, your WRX has a vehicle identification number. This is not always the case when we have contacts inquiring about Impreza orders. While it is not "delivered" yet, it is in the ending stages. It looks like the beginning of November for an ETA. It could actually be earlier.
Again, we are very sorry that the process was longer than anticipated. We do appreciate your patience and are confident that you will enjoy your 2013 Subaru WRX.

This crap has been going on since June when i was told i couldnt order a 2012 and had to wait until the 2013 ordering opened up.
