How long have they been on the ship? I don't know how long it takes those big ships to cross the Pacific, but it ain't fast. How long from manufacture does it take to get them on the ship? I don't think I would worry about the paint curing.
Mine was built sometime in July according to the sticker in my door frame.

I spent about 2 hours with mine today sitting in the show room. Looking over EVERYTHING. I have some more pics, I'll post a couple in a few minutes.

You can order those from LaminX website. Unless you are into DIY projects, look for a professional tint or detailer who install film overlays.

So the guy at my dealership is good but doesn't really give me updates. I am trying not to bother this guy so I don't contact him often but about 2-3 weeks ago (can't remember atm) I called him to see if there were any updates and he told me that I actually had a VIN and that my car was already built. From experience, how much longer do you guys think it will take for my car to get here? I have an ETA of October 1st btw

Average wait from when you put a deposit with the dealer is 8-12wks. I'm one of the few in the US that took home a 2013 STi before Labor Day which I am greatful for. Some have ordered theirs before me and are still waiting Consider yourself very lucky if the car comes by said date.

Did you flip through the user manuals yet? I've got like 6 different ones I need to read over. Talk about COMPLEX! But that's okay, I am so happy that I finally got it after nearly 21 weeks!

Call the dealer. They told me mine had arrived in WA, and was being loaded on a train. Then the guy gave me a delivery date of the 24th but said they almost always arrive a full week early. This is a base mine you.

Why in the world would you get a 250 coupe? Less power, less space, less practicality, less capable, less fun, less interesting...do you WANT to be a gray blob melding into the endless stream of other gray blobs?

Mine's due next week. Finally. Question: can I swap my Limited WRX's 17" wheels for a set of Subaru's 18 x 8.5-inch wheels (that are spec'd on the STI)...without rolling fenders, etc.?

No, you can't, the bolt pattern doesn't match up. You need a 5x100 bolt pattern for the WRX. STI have 5x114.
