Mine's coming about 6 weeks after I ordered, the past few recent orders came in 4-6 weeks.

do you think there's a difference in order time between sti's vs. wrx's? i just ordered mine a few days ago and the salesman was certain it'd get here before the end of may which is what, 12 weeks away?

PBP

Default Mis-ordered sedan after 15+ wks

Ordered WRX PBP sedan on 11/05/12.
Arrived 2/20/13 as a hatch.

Update- the dealer located 3 PBP 4-door base WRX cars with similar options as what I ordered. They will try to swap cars with a dealer and flatbed the cars so no mileage is added. Then they will install the missing options. If that doesn't work, we will reorder with SoA. They will try to expedite. At least for the Northeast, I found out that the next big regional order cutoff date to Japan is the end of next week. More later...

You're welcome.
Thanks for this! I was looking for a DGM Hatch Limited WRX and this is the first one I've seen. Of course after I sent this my dealer he sent me back an email saying ETA 3/4.

He also said be ready, it could come 5-6 days early or 4 days late. Either way I'm ready to end the wait.

I'm thinking of placing an order I have a couple of questions though. Did you guys get a final price from the dealer when ordering. I was told they don't talk numbers until the car comes in. The dealer wants a 1000 deposit to order the car; I forgot to ask if it is refundable. What are your experiences?

I got a final out the door price including destination charges, tax and cost of swapping my plates from my old car to new car when I placed my order.

The deposit comes off the price of the car when it comes in and my dealer said it was refundable but it varies dealer to dealer. Whats cool is I didn't order any accessories with mine so he actually didn't even want a deposit. Just told me it's normally a $500 refundable deposit.

Nailed the price before placing deposit. Mine was only $100. Seems like the vast majority of people settle on a price first, usually around invoice.

yes, i got a final OTD price when ordering, my dealer was adamant about the deposit being 1000, i told them i wasnt paying that and they eventually took 500. i didnt ask them about it being refundable, because i didnt plan on asking for it back.. but i did at another place to hold a car and they refunded it.

if they dont talk numbers talk to another dealer.

Same here. All 4 dealers I dealt with, we talked price first because I wasn't planning on paying msrp or above that most were asking. They wanted $1k deposit, but they agreed to $500 as it was a sticking point of mine. Be prepared to walk if they won't give you the price you want. Don't let them hold it over your head that they have the car sitting there. As for the deposit, if you never signed anything saying that the deposit was non-refundable, they can't keep your money when you received nothing in return. This is part of the reason I used a cc for my deposit, easy to dispute and get my money back.

One more observation, well two I guess from a couple days of driving:

1. Stereo- I don't understand why everyone complains so much about it. I mean its not ear blowing, but it sounds decent. Perhaps the Navi unit is better than the normal HU, I don't know but it sounds pretty damn decent to me.

2. Shifter- Stock shifter sucks, throws are to long. Easy fix with a STS, but now I know why everyone always complained about it.

Otehrwise, the car is badass.

Once again hang in there fellas, the cars will be here soon.

It seems like the Nav HU gives a bit more juice to the speakers so they don't sound as bad. The 7 band EQ kind of help too. I got one coming so I'll be able to tell if there's a different compare to the standard HU which is HORRIBLE in term of sound.

2. Shifter- Stock shifter sucks, throws are to long. Easy fix with a STS, but now I know why everyone always complained about it.
This is why I got the STS ordered with the car. Didn't like the long throw in the 2011 WRX I test drove.

Man I should really leave this thread but it's too much fun.

So how are you guys checking national inventory of subaru's? I can only find local, and the place I ordered from won't ****ing get back to me. With an order of mid-January, waiting 20 weeks for a car is ridiculous. I'd like to find it elsewhere in the US if possible and have them ship it.
