I also just got my VIN email. Original ETA was last week of August, now it says on or before 9/4/18. With lots of people getting theirs early I was hopeful it would be sometime in early or mid August. Oh well. It'll just give me more time to continue to save for the down payment.

Perhaps this is the wrong place to ask, but maybe someone can help or point me in the right direction. Anyways... I'm waiting on my 19' WRX order now and want to add the Gold warranty to my car. I know I can shop around since I don't need to get it at the dealership of purchase and can probably get a better deal. Anyone have any suggestions? Specific dealerships? Should I reach out to local dealerships? Thanks!

Default Slightly off topic- RA review

lots of silly stuff in here, but if you watch the last 5 minutes of the video with the actual driving and his commentary/monologue at the end you'll appreciate it. I think this is the most brutally honest RA review i've seen and I think he really nails it.

Iíd recommend emailing Planet Subaru they are really good when it comes to discounts on warranty and the best thing is you can get the warranty before 36k miles.

If anyone wants a regular WRX at invoice I can hook that up for you through the Subaru VIP program. However, it has to be financed and not leased. For some reason you can not get invoice price on a lease with them.
I thought the VIP program didnít include these two cars period, even financed (my dealer mustíve been lying). Now Iím mad I didnít try to get the discount. I have a family

Default How do you pick a color

I'm thinking of going next weekend to buy an STI. Dealer agreed to my offer but they have 5 different colors. How do you decide on a color? I don't dislike any of the colors but non of them jump out at me either. I am currently stuck between gray, red and silver. Also, anyone have pictures to post of their 2019? I know there are plenty of 2018 pictures out there and they are the same think visually but I never get tired of new pictures.

Silver if you dislike washing your car. Silver also shows off the body lines best. I have a DGM 2019 STI. It's a nice color.

Red looks fantastic and I donít see too many of them. Only drawback is the high visibility for cops and swirl marks/scratches. I had a red car years ago and it was almost as bad as a black car. Every little scratch was visible. I went with blue since thatís the color I have wanted since 2004.

Of the three colors you listed, I like the DGM. I got LBP and love that color.

What is your expected delivery date? I was on the fence between LBP and RBP. My wife says go with LBP and now I kind of regret it. That darker blue reminds me of the plasma blue pearl Subaru used back in 2013-2014. That was my all time favorite.

I have ISM and my bro-in-law just got the DGM - they both look sweet. It's like good vs. evil when they're next to each other. Which side will you choose?

[quote=JRF;45714681]Has anyone checked to see if the RA midpipe and mufflers are the same part #'s as the stock 2019 base STI???

I'm waiting to see aftermarket axlebacks start becoming available.[/--


-----> for anyone interested, I was just able to confirm that the mid-pipe on the '18 Type RA is the same part # as the mid-pipe on the 2019 base STI...... 44200VA110.

Just got my email and the expected delivery is the last week of September. I was torn between the LBP and WRB, but after looking through the forums and hanging out at the dealership before ordering, decided to go with the darker of the two.

Picking up mine in less than 20 hours now! Super excited!

On a side note, for those of you who have already picked up, let's start seeing some of those pics eh? Don't let me be the first.

With all the news today of the possible 25% tariff on imports what would that do for the 2019 models? Lets say it goes into effect tomorrow then any car not in port today would get taxed?
