Question WRX Demo in Bay Area?

The dealers I've spoken to say no demos - only preordered cars are available.

Does anyone know of an exception to this?

There are no demo cars in the area. All of the cars are presold. Your best bet is to keep your eye open for a press car. I was lucky enough yesterday to find one at the service department getting it's check engine light cleared. No dealer will allow you to drive a pre-sold car.

Also, in the future, please never quote me on something that I have never said to you or in public. That is called "making things up", you know.

Stevens Creek Subaru has their entire allocation for sale right off the lot!

Yes, every last silver automatic sedan (1 available) is available for a mere $10,000 dealer markup.

Santa Cruz Subaru got 22 WRX's this week. Ahh, the power of i-Club!

That's advertisement fraud on Subaru's part since they're advertising, "Give us 6.4 seconds and we'll prove it. Test drive the new WRX at your Subaru dealer" Mens Health, April 2001 Issue. They're so boldly telling you to test drive a car, which is not available, nor will be available in the near future because of the limtied quantities.

Typical Subaru-- Advertise something it's not.

Alex - after rereading your posts, (see WRX countdown) I apologize. You didn't actually say you drove a demo or any car for that matter, at Marin Mazda/Subaru. In fact, it took two queries from me to get a response, and that was so carefully worded I am tempted to say it was misleading. Plus a big advertisement for the sales manager at Marin M/S - which is selling cars at MSRP plus freight etc.

Just read your additional post at "WRX ctdn"
sorry I couldnt translate it but I appreciated the wink.
