Yeah, we thought it was a steal as well.

Waiting for this car is gonna kill me. I wish I could be cryogenic-ally frozen until it arrived.

Well you could always read the WRX manual.

I actually spent time reading it last night, learning about the VDC and hill assist features.

I wish they had left the hill assist feature off of the WRX and the STi... I feel bad for the WRX crowd that cant turn it off.

Yeah I do to now too. I have drove manual shift cars for the past 20 some years now. I never had problems with taking off on hills. I wonder how much this is gonna bother me . Kind of hard to pull away from traffic if your brake is holding you back. Does anyone know how much of angle you have to be at for it to activate?

It's gotta be a halfway decent grade. In regular stop and go traffic it doesn't ever kick on for me.

As a future STI owner, how do you turn off hill assist?

My wife's 2013 outback (it is a 6spd manual one) has an electronic parking brake on it that has the hill assist on there. My wife loves it because she can pull up in the parking spot and it will turn it on for her.

I on the other hand turn it off every time I get in the car. I have noticed that if you are on an incline, no matter how small and you take your foot off the brake and roll back just alil it will turn on. It does however do an alright job of letting go when you start moving. I still hate it though, if you are driving a 260+hp performance car with a manual gear box. You shouldn't need a hill assist... If you do you shouldn't be driving it.

However if you plan to REALLY take off, say from a inclined autox start, I would take it off because it does take it a second to let go.

I would be more ok with it being on there if it had a green "its on" button and light on the dash rather than no light, no button, but when you turn it off it has a "its off" red error light.

For those who plan on keeping the car for a long time... just think of the PITA it is going to be when something having to do with the hill assist fails...

Got an email back from the dealership today, unfortunately it looks like a November delivery.

He said only about 50 STIs are due here in the states thru the end of October! So they're behind in production. Just look at the August sales numbers for Subaru and it all makes sense. Tom doll on bbg news the other day said production is running full tilt.

Aug WRX/STI sales up 81% too! That's a lot of orders to fill. Time to hurry up and wait. Lol

First time WRX owner / poster here. Ordered my base DGM WRX sedan with short shifter, spoiler, turbo heat shield, all weather floor mats for $25678 on Aug 30.

I got the '14 cause there were some sweet deals out there. I don't think the '15 will have drastically better performance but will probably be fairly more expensive and I'll have to pay sticker. Not to mention an unknown first year drive train. Plus I don't like a 6 speed, which I assume it will have, that I have to shift all the time. Aside from the torque steer, another reason I didn't go with the Focus ST.

What does VON mean? The dealer quoted me a mid December delivery. Does that seem reasonable?

What is it about the Incline Start Assist you don't like? I have it on mine and it is transparent to me.

I believe it is a 5% grade. I know this is the number for the the hill holder on the Outback/Legacy, but think that is the number for the Incline Start Assist also.

Von = vehicle order number.

Mid December sounds about right. I ordered mine the first week of aug and expected delivery is November.

Hey everyone,
I wanted to get your opinion on this deal I have been working on with a dealership.

It is for a limited hatchback in DGM with all weather mats, red illumination kit, and a rear bumper cover, all which would be ordered.

Price I am being offered is: $30,900 OTD taxes and all

Let me know what you think.

Would someone be able to give me what a sample VON number looks like? I ordered my DGM WRX STI Sedan back in the first week of June. My 13 order was changed to a 14 and was put in the day the orders for the 14 were open. The saleslady I have been working with sent me a screen shot of my order in the system without is showing the order being filled, however in the same screen shot I saw several other cars, a legacy, brz, with the status as being filled. I only see three letters and two numbers above my vehicle model. Is that the VON? This lady has been the worst at providing a timeline. Every time I ask her anything shes clueless and its the most infuriating thing. I wish she would lie and give me some timeline.

The word "VON" is right beside the number on the form. Its 9 numbers long. Are you saying your sales person wont come right out and tell you what the VON number is? Ask her for the actual VON number. Then take it and call Subaru to confirm it.

The best I can explain it is... Its unnatural for gravity not to happen. I notice that it drags the rear down a bit when you try start going because its reaction time its instant.

I have a general WTF machine I didn't need you to do that feeling.

Its kinda like a slow automatic sliding door at walmart, sure you didn't have to push the door open... but I would have rather just pushed it open and not had to wait on it.

Are you in new england? I'm in the same boat as you as far as getting a screenshot instead of von goes. I did some cross research and it appears that Subaru of New England has a different vehicle order system than SOA. My screenshot shows my model, date ordered, color, deposit, and whether or not Subaru has accepted the order. There were other orders in the screenshot as well.

I know on the STI the hill assist is turned off by pressing the traction control button once and then pressing it and holding for 5-10 seconds.. Not sure what other models this works on but the light will come on and be amber for the hill assist..

What is the importance of a VON? My dealer didn't give me anything except a sheet with an agreed price and what I ordered and said to check back in November. Do I need to get anything else from him?
