Cool My new car is on the Way

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to shout out Everyone in the Subaru World!

I bought a white '03 WRX and it will arrive Sept. 10.

I can't wait, Im going nuts.

This is my first car ever...a present to myself for turning 30!

Plus I'll be joining the Super Street Tour: North leg to NOPI.
(this will be by 4th time on the tour)

I hope to see some other I-Club members out there.

Peace!

welcome to the family. I guess our cars are technically brother/sisters.

and remember...Don't abuse your car....Its WAY to easy to drive fast, avoid it at least for a while.





once again, welcome to I-Club.

Cool

Thanks for the Warm Greeting Everyone!!

Just from clicking around the posts, I learned that everyone loves their Subaru in so many different ways.

Yes...I will start a photo album for the car.
"Baby's first steps"
"Baby's first oil change"
"Baby's new Rims"

lol

Man I can't wait!
I'll proably camp out in front of the dealership just to see my car come in on the carrier.

Oh yea...I'm hooked!

September 10th, huh? Is that what they told you? Good luck to you. I ordered my 02 WRX May 1st and it just arrived yesterday. I'm picking it up tomorrow, but believe me, they told me every week, "it should be there next week, no more delays". Baloney. I hope, for your sake, and sanity, it comes when they said.

and i thought i was the only one who drove their car just cause they love it? I guess that's what makes us Subaru people different from everyone else, we drive our cars because our cars are so fun and enjoying. Only thing i hate about driving my car is having to buy so much gas...

Congrats KMCD!!!

Dam Good choice. I have had my WRX Sedan since last March. I to take the long way to work. Love to drive. Rain, Sun Sine or Snow. Snow, the WRX is a BLASDT to drive in the snow. I got a little taste of snow driving the mouth I bought My Babby. Can't wait for this winter. Last winter we had over 300 inched of the white stuff. Onlt thing bad about winter driving, is the road salt.
Snow GOOD , Salt BAD .

Sounds like your experience is more typical. Dealers have told me to expect delivery in about 10 weeks from the time the order is submitted...submitted at the factory that is.

Also understand that SOA holds all orders for batching and submitting to Japan on the last Friday of every month. Unfortunately for you, your order would have been held for 30 days at SOA before being submitted.

I placed an order on July 26, but I suspect the order didn't reach SOA in time for the July batch because I still don't even have an estimated delivery date from my dealer.

I'm guessing my WRX will arrive about the 1st week of November.

Waiting sux.

KMCD - maybe your car was already "in the pipeline" when you ordered and your dealer snagged it or was going to receive it as stock anyway. Don't give up hope for early delivery.

Congratulations... that's exactly the same present I gave myself for my 30th birthday last november. Except mine is black, not white. I had them deliver it on my birthday as well... definitely something I won't forget!

I'd be curious to know which other cars you were considering besides the WRX, and what it was about the WRX that made you choose it in the end?

I may see you around dude.

I'm moving back to DC and once lived up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn so I will make frequent cruise trips to "the city" just for fun.

Laters. Congrats!
