The first year of a redesign tend to be the worst year, they would need a lot of improvements so a 2015/16 would be better ones. I was going to wait till the 14 but changed my mind and am planning on ordering a 2013 in February.

What spy photos are you referring to ? The article in car and driver stated the exterior shown is not the new design, it was a mechanical example in an impreza shell. I'm sort of on the fence. They typically start ordering for the next model year in the summer right? I plan on ordering in march but if they get some more details out to talk me out of it I may wait.

The articles photos were simply a test mule so it is unlikely that the photos are what is in store for the new redesign. They are simple just experimenting with the new engine and a 6spd. No one will really know what new is to come until mid-late 2013.

It's going to be interesting to see how it performs

I have currently managed to see a price around $36,200. That dealer also stated that it would take 6 months to arrive. Do bigger dealers have priority of fulfillment than smaller dealers and is this price good or should I keep pushing?

Thank you for all your current and future advice.

Regards,
about time!!!!

I wouldn't know yet. I only have a car for less than a week. So far the paint isn't any different than my Acura. Although I'm getting PermaPlate paintguard done today just to have a piece of mind with the paint.

I'm sorry but "My friend does it" is not a strong enough argument against the manufacturers recommended guidelines and the science behind the different types of rubber compounds used in making tires.

Not to mention it's a rather stupid risk to take with a brand new car. I imagine an insurance company might also consider it a good reason not to pay up on a damage claim if you aren't running the correct equipment and run off the road in the ice or snow.

It's a good enough argument for me. Like I stated, I live in virginia where there aren't too many snow showers. The weather does get to mid 20s to 30 degrees though. For example, currently it is 36 degrees here @ 10:50AM.

Secondly, I did not say "my friend" drives with summer tires on. I said "my friends". If there are multiple people who I know who drive around with summer tires on in winter here, that is enough evidence to support that the stock tires are relatively safe to use and probably perform normally when heated up after extended use.

The people who I know who drive with stock tires all drive stock or stage 2 GR's with the exception of a guy who currently drives a 500+WHP soon to be 800+WHP evo X. Even he has no problem driving in a couple inches of snow.

Now if I lived in the NE, by all means, the first thing I would do would be to buy some winter tires.

Anyways, my schedule date has arrived. Should I call my dealer for an update such as if the car is actually at the port or should I wait a few days? I hope I can graduate from this thread soon.

For those of you who recieved your car, how much longer do you think I will have to wait?

That's fair enough, if the norm for you area is that it is not very cold or snowey than that route makes sense.

I've been driving on the stock summers for a week now here where the temps are below 10 degrees and haven't had any issues on dry pavement. I have felt significant slipping though in my apartment complex which still has some snow packed.

Is it "safe" to drive on summers all winter long? Technically, no. I feel that even in a blizzard though you would be ok if you drove slow and tried to avoid hills. I personally wouldn't risk it though; my WS70s should be at the dealership today / tomorrow for install so I won't have to worry about it anymore.

I too have lived in VA for years, and have had summer tires on all my cars I have owned from an 08 Acura TL type-s, civic si, and an evo x. I have driven through snow plenty of times, and never had to many issues. Just take it slow and don't drive like a jackass and all is fine, thats my motto.

On a side note, I am only in week 4 since I ordered my car and the wait is killing me lol!

I've been driving on the stock summer tires too and they're fine on dry pavement but definitely slip like a mofo in the snow slow or not lol. Although the AWD helps a lot with traction so as long as you drive with common sense you should be fine. Don't be going 40mph in street wet and full of snow.

For people that got their WRX/STi already. Is your clutch's catch point really high? Mine is almost close to full release. Like 2/3 of the way up. I'm a new stick driver so I can see why it was a bit harder for me to get used to having to hold the clutch so high up. But I'm getting quite a bit better now that I'm used to this clutch. Just a thought and want to see if anyone else think alike.
