Post WRX sedan & wagon at South SanFran Subaru

This weekend was my first chance to see WRX in person. I live near the Subaru/Volkswagen dealership on Chestnut and El Camino and noticed a blue sedan on their parking lot. Naturally I pulled in to check it out and was very disappointed. I was one of the first 15 people to sign up for SC group buy for silver 5spd sedan. I then decided to buy 98 Accord LX because I came across a great deal($11K). I realised that paying $275/mo for 3 years was much better than paying $500/mo for 5 years. Anyhow my desire for wrx hasnt diminished untill this weekend. The blue sedan was just too damn plain looking. It was very small, and narrow. The rear spoiler didnt help a bit. I was very disappointed like I said, but then I noticed a silver wagon parked couple cars away. Now that was a cool card. If I ever get a subaru, it would be wrx wagon. It was longer and wider. It just radiated coolness by its forms. From now on, WRX sedan is no-no in my book while the wagon is the thing to have

we just bought ours from them a week ago. She was the only WRX they had then. I guess the ordered more.

Who did you talk to? We got ours from "Charles", nice guy but very strict on the pricing though.

Well I agree on the wagon's looks, but the sedan is growing on me the more I see it. You're wrong about the wagon being longer and wider then the sedan though. They are the same length and the sedan is slightly wider.

you just contradicted yourself about me being wrong by restating that it was in fact wider. My point however was that it looked better and wider and longer which could have been an illusion produced by an integrated spoiler and its color(silver as opposed to blue sedan). Matter of fact, this might be biased, since I think everything looks better in silver.
To other poster, i didnt really speak to anyone, I just checked it out, sat in one, while the salespeople were talking to other customers. I wasnt there to buy, just to look. They are in fact selling it for $25595+destination(what a rip-off compared to the group buy).
