Is there some system of rotation to decide what saleman approaches a customer?
Does it mess up rotation or piss you off if you approach me and I tell you I'm "just looking"? Do you then go to the back of the line?
Depends on the showroom. Some go in a rotation depending on experience. We go in order of who came in first that day.

Is it possible to negotiate a better price if I pay cash or am pre-approved for credit vs applying for credit?
No. The dealer actually prefers for you to finance. We either mark the rate up or receive a small payment ("flat") from the financing company to get you to finance with us. Either way it has nothing to do with the sale price. "I'm paying cash" is another thing you can say that lets us know you have no idea what you're talking about.

what dealership should i go to in the MD/VA/DC area to find a new 2011 STI? are the prices on the 2011 or (previous year models) much lower to try and make room for the 2012s?
I don't work for a Subaru store any more, but there are plenty of recommendations for one particular dealer all over this forum. Do some research and it should be pretty clear.
