Yeah a lot of dealers are shady. I got lucky and found a good one that gave me no BS. I knew what I wanted to pay and got a fair deal on my trade in. This site and the internet in general helped so much. The downfall is the long wait.

Ordered my CBS 5 Door Premium on 10/5 from Van Bortel Subaru, they do things differently and provided a control number but no VON. Sales rep says he's hopefull ill be in the November allocation. I'm hoping since they are one of the biggest dealers in the nation that I can get it before December.

I only drove it because the dealer wanted to show me what I was waiting for...granted, it makes the wait a whole lot harder, but I feel like it will definitely be worth it

Ordered mine on 10/3. 13 dgm base sedan with fogs and dimming mirror with compass. I got a von and an email stating that a hold was placed that day. I havent heard anything since. Should i call the dealer for an update? They say they call when the car is approx. 2 weeks away but i feel as though they would know something else before then (like the hold being removed etc)

a) I got a better deal on the order, and it's being built exactly how I want it. I love DGM but a WRB WRX has been on my radar since I was about 8 years old.
b) Coming off the truck, it bottomed out and scraped the bottom of the front bumper. That was a huge turn off. However, when I looked at it today, it was repaired and looked completely flawless.

I probably missed it, but what model/options did you get? That is only 7 days before I placed an order for a WRX 5door limited w/NAV. I was also told mid-december.

Just ordered a SWP 5-door WRX with no options dealer told me 6-8 weeks was the normal wait time how accurate do you think that is? This thread is a bit discouraging but it sounds like the long waits are mostly for STIs.

I got a DGM WRX base with: short throw, boost gauge, all weather mats, mirror and compass, wheel locks, shock sensor, rear cup holder an Sti shift knob. Hopefully you'll get a VIN soon too and it doesn't really take until December.

Can't believe how bad the stock radio is on this thing. I know people have said it, but I was never big on audio stuff so I thought I wouldn't mind....I was wrong. I don't want to put a bunch of money in audio, but I think I saw just a new HU will help quite a bit. The volume control is dumb, yes dumb, because you have to go up, or down, about 10 #'s to even tell a difference...it's just a real bad stock radio.

Yeah I wasn't trying to be sour, but to be honest we are all floating, existing, and paddling this same boat together.
The few who get "raptured" out of this boat by the arrival of their cars are the only hero's.

Only other choice are those who give up, jump ship, and die (basically what happens when you give up)

There are a few people who have received their cars with nav. Not a ton though.
