Cheaper to order, STis are almost non-existent on lots that aren't already spoken for, color choice.

For me it's about the options. There are over 100 WRX's within a 30 minute drive of me, and probably 20 of those are STi's. Maybe 12 of those are hatch, 2 or 3 have nav, none in PBP.

I'm also in the same boat as Imprezafreak regarding delivery, and based on what I'm seeing here I haven't pulled the trigger on ordering yet. Looking at mid January now, hopefully that translates into late March delivery. If it's a month later that's also no biggie for me.

In the case with my area, in 200 mile radius, there are 0 STI's but about 10 WRX's.

I ordered in August when there were absolutely no STi's around me at all. Right now there is one or two hatches within like 200 miles but none with nav. I am glade I waited for mine.

just got an update from my dealer.

order went from "month of december ETA"
BACK to "ordered" within 12hrs...... either this is a lie? (doubtful) and it went to HOLD, or it really did do this.

He / they called their DM who said "oh, it has nav? well thats whats causing the delay" which of course is what everyone on here already knows, but come on haven't tons of nav cars been arriving? This stupid DM sounds uninformed.

Either way we are looking in the USA allocation to snatch one up and say **** you to SOA. SOA will be SOL.

Either that or i'll have to compromise on colors, OR NOT GET NAV.
What are excellent aftermarket solutions in case I have to do that.

I need some suggestions im going to FLIP OUT AAHHHHH

Did you physically see that your order had an eta for December? Maybe it was always on ordered and your dealer just said it had a dec eta to keep you from canceling your order.

I feel for you being pissed off. All of us here would be super pissed off if something alike this happened to us too. But don't compromise your color. If anything take out the navigation but if you pick another color you wil l be dissatisfied about your purchase somewhere down the road. Probably when your actual eta day comes and you had to get another color, you will think " damn, if I waited just 1 more month I could have gotten everything to my exact standards with the color I want."

Btw, I don't think taking out the navi would make your order arrive any sooner as lots of people here who had navi got their orders within the 8-12 weeks

In re to navi a pioneer head unit touchscreen has a pretty nice gps addon. Clarion also has some nice new units but its a clarion so scrap that. If you travel a lot a portable car unit garmin would be your best bet. I take mine all over the world so I always opt for a car sans nav

Tbh, if you have a smart phone you don't even really need navi anymore.

Scratch that. My boss just notified me today that I will be getting a pretty hefty year-end bonus!

Going to put in my order next week after I get back from holiday travels.

I just called a number off the website and after a couple menu options had someone that could look up a VON. I didn't have the VON yet though.

Agreed. I used to use my portable car GPS all the time. Then 2 years ago I got my first smart phone.

Google Maps is the best. The only issue I'm going to have is finding a place to put the phone in the '13, without buying one of those "clunky" phone holders.

Whats nice about my 04 was my phone fits snug in the little utility tray under the climate controls. The back of the phone would rest against the lighter and ash tray to face up a 45* angle and no bump could move it. It was like it was meant to be. I'm going to miss that.

Man, seeing this post brings mixed emotions for me. I ordered on 10/4 and got a 12/31 ETA. Base hatch with some accessories. Have not heard anything from my dealer since he gave me the ETA. Really hoping mine gets here in the next few days, I sold my Protege on Monday.

may be you should start doing some good deed so you can get good karma in return. (Ex: Find out what ship/port subies are carried on the west coast)

My scheduled date was 12/18 (yesterday). i'm wondering if there's any other update on order yet. Emailed salesman hoping for good news.

it's already 11am, still haven't heard from my salesman regarding snatching one from national allocation OR trading someone OR settling for another color OR without nav.

How many options did I just give him jeez, how long does it take!
I been up since 6:30 already had meal 4.

I put in my time, Friday marks week 11 my patience has run out.

Like I was explaining on a local community wrx forum, it's not like I think it's my dealers fault, in fact I know it isn't, but I have to play "ignorant consumers" advocate here and pretend i'm NOT an internet freak, and pretend i DON'T read forums and did NOT know that subaru had announced a 4 month delay.
After all, my dealer did NOT tell me that, in fact I told them that.

Assuming that, I should be one angry, ignorant consumer at this point. You told me 12 weeks, it isn't here, bla bla bla. In other words the only way I can justify not bitching to my dealership about this, is by operating under the assumption I've done all this external research and know what's going on myself. That's a horrible assumption to make though.

there are people that ordered since august and still has nothing beside their VON# lol. But I would be mad too if I was told something and not get it. I was told 6-8 weeks for my order. However I'm on week 10 and just recently got ETA of 12/31 then changed to 1/2. So I'll be waiting for about 12-13 weeks.
