Default Anyone going to England want to pick me up a car?

Just got off the phone with one of my bosses in the UK. He knows I'm a subaru lad and asked if I wanted him to bring one home for me next time.

I said sure, why?

He said that they are dropping the price on the WRX 3,000-4,000 pounds to clear them out in anticipation of the redesigned models.

That's $4-6k off list kids.

According to http://www.subaru.co.uk/forester_imp...reza_offer.htm, Subaru UK is slashing the list price of a WRX wagon by 3,000, from 21,995 ($34,000) to 18,995 ($29,375).

Woohoo.

I have to say the UK gets screwed on cars. Prices are significantly higher than in the US, and the per capita across the pond is significantly lower too.

Is it reasonable to assume, depending on inventories,that
this could happen in the US next year or thereafter when the redesign hits US shores?

im here now, but even assuming you
a) had the money
b) have the customs paperwork all ready for me

you would not be able to import the car as a street legal vehicle.

as a non-street use vehicle yes. but you'll need a whole separate license/company for that deal.

also, for the people that posted the pricing off the UK pricing - did you remember to take off VAT at 17.5%?

us Americanos don't have to pay for that you know
