Is it just me, or does knowing the date actually make the wait worse? Longest. Days. Ever.

Well a few updates. My 13 STI hatch came without the sys, the dealer backed out of the usaa pricin which we agreed, (I was pissed), I really wanted the car and spent 3 hrs negotiating the price back down.
Not really happy.

So the dealer told me they would install the sts for free if I ordered it right now. $590...yeah right.

Anyways, as I ran as fast as I could away from that place once I signed for my car, I made my way to EQ tuning.
Heads up, access port will not work with the 13's yet... And invidia q300 sounds great!

Knowing the car is at the dealer and you can't pick it up is worse.

It's great to see a bunch of us getting VIN's and ETA's. The wait is almost over!

me too, SOOO agonizing. I ordered 08/15/12 through Grand Subaru and I still don't have a VIN as of late yesterday. Not sure why some people that already have a VIN when they ordered AFTER I did. Pretty upset actually

Oh well. Makes me want to revolt and get an EVO

Might be a blessing in disguise. I've seen a lot of people comment that the aftermarket sts's are significantly better and easy to install yourself. I could be wrong, but a fellow wrx owner told me it's a half hour job with a few common tools.

Found a youtube video here, but don't have time to watch it (I'm at work)

Don't feel bad, there are plenty of people that have been trying to buy one since April / May and had their 2012 orders cancelled and rolled into 2013 orders. Still no end in sight for me.

Hey guys! I called up SOA today because my sales guy at the dealer is off today to check on the car. They had a vin ready and aparently my car is on a boat en route to the port of baltimore! ETA is Oct 8th (2 days after my brithday, not too bad!). This is my first experience ordering a new car, but for anyone thats ordered in the past, how accurate are these estimated arrival dates?

Are people still asking their dealers NOT to apply tire dressing/shine? I remember that being a big cause for concern during the initial detailing a few months ago...

Whats the concern over this? I planned on telling them not to put any dealership decals on. Never thought tire shine would be an issue.

Anyone else notice the prices on the options/accessories at Subaru.com are all screwy for the 2013s? Some higher, some lower than what is on the official accessory list, Truecar, cars101, etc. I guess those numbers (on Subaru.com) don't mean much?

Here's one example.

It's also discussed in the 2012 order thread.

Looks like the evanston/grand area orders should come in around the same time. My ETA is still november, but I think its a great idea to get a group photo. This is my first subaru and new car, so I'd love a photo to remember the experience. Hopefully they all end up arriving mid october.

Talking west coast? OR orders? NW group?

Hey everybody, just wanted to see if there were any people who ordered in my area? I'm in Portland, OR and ordered from Dick Hannah in Vancouver. I posted back when I placed the order, 4 Dr SWP Limited, no navi. I see mostly East coast, NE area with a few Midwest people with early Oct eta. Where you at guys/girls? Any updates or new info from our side of the country?

Congrats on the good news all you lucky Eastcoast/Midwest people!
