Haha sure! My son is 5, also have a 2yo daughter but she stayed with grandma and grandpa last night for obvious reasons. Though our salesman had a story book, coloring book, and pretty awesome Crayola's waiting for them!

Convertible? You made a big mistake, should've gotten this instead Good luck with the rest of your order!

Last night I found my exact car at another dealership. I called the dealer that I placed my order with and he said they don't often do deals because dealers do not like to trade out their alloted STIs and will ask for a premium.

My idea, I take my invoice to the dealer with the STI and say if you can beat this price by $500 dollars I will buy the car now (with trade-in) and cash difference.

The original dealer will keep the $500 dollar deposit and I will get the new car for $500 dollars cheaper at the new dealers. For me it is a push.

Any thoughts?
If they are resistant, offer to get something that you might not have originally to offset that cost for them.

Accessories are the only things done at the port here and you can get a brochure at any dealer or on Subaru.com

If you are talking about the current NAV in the car, it is made by Fujitsu ten. Not by Kenwood anymore.

I just called them and it has already been sold

He then felt the need to tell me that they have another hatch coming in that also has already been sold.

This is getting out of hand, lol. He did tell me that the ordering process is speeding up and they are seeing a turn around of about 2 months from order date to getting the car. Not sure how accurate that is judging by what I'm reading here.

==================

So I gave the local dealer a call to see what he could do and he will call me back.

I find it AMAZING that there are so many WRX/STIs sitting on other dealers lots, but they will NOT trade each other. I guess they assume that they can sell the car for more than the trade. Anyway - I will know more tomorrow.
The dealer called me this morning and said that it looks good and it may get done. He will try to finalize it tomorrow.

This is a little tricky because I am trading in TWO cars (Subaru) for TWO NEW Subaru. It's getting a little wacky, but he thinks he can pull off this 4 way deal.

Crossing fingers. Should know tomorrow.

Yeah :-( That other hatch coming in is mine. I thought it was on this same truck but apparently not. I just called the dealer and he told me two more weeks.

It's been 6 months today since I ordered...

6 months is out of control.
Multiple felonies would have been committed far prior to that point in my world...

The Leo Leader isn't due into port till 11/15. That storm looks like it would be ahead of it and shouldn't delay anything unless it causes damage.

And of course that is just a predicted path. It could turn out to sea.

Just got an email from my dealer apparently my car Is in their November allocation. So it will be here middle of November. I got really lucky that they had one coming in the color and trim I wanted. Pretty excited at this point.

Anyone know if vehicles coming to the western half of the states are received in port on the east coast and then shipped to the west coast, or do they come into port on the west coast and shipped from there? It wouldn't make any sense at all to do ship everything to the east coast, but it sure seems like everything that's being talked about is going to the east coast.

I've seen some youtube videos of people picking up their cars from the dealer and the little silver piece on the trunk is color matched to their car. Was this a factory option choice? I'd like to get mine color matched to SWP.

If your talking about trunk trim on the sedan, silver was only on the 2011 models. 2012> is color matched
