Yeah, my family has a small beach house in town that we all share during the summer.
Initially I got a couple quotes from a dealer near my home town (Planet Subaru), then another near my work in RI (Balise Subaru).
Planet was low balling me on my trade, and refused to go below invoice or include any options. So I walked away. A week later I called Balise and they promised a better deal but he needed to crunch numbers and would call me back...(He never called back), but atleast they had already looked at my trade from when I was checking out BRZ's and were willing to give me a good value.
In retrospect its a good thing they didn't call back...
...that same night I was texting my sister (recently bought a 2012 Impreza from Beard Subaru) and she suggested contacting her sales guy.
We'll he emailed me the night around 11pm! I told him what I wanted to pay and what I expected for my trade. Two days later he emailed me back with a better deal then what I asked for. I just needed to swing by and have them look at my 04 STI.
They loved it, and offered to lock in my trade value reguardless of how many more miles I put on it while waiting for the new car to come in.
So we wrote it all up, locked in the new car price, and trade value and signed for it. Basically all thats left is to work out the finance amount and how much I'm going to put down.
As far as I know...It the only STI on order that far pass the Canal.
Beard Subaru is a very small dealer, but Atlantic Subaru in Bourne is much MUCH larger and I assume they have some orders for WRX's and a few STI's.
