Smile Finally got my WRX . . .

Just thought I'd share with everyone . . . I just picked up my Rally Blue WRX Wagon (5 spd, of course!) from Wolfe Subaru yesterday.

Man, this break-in period is going to be tough!

I'd post pics, but you guys know what it looks like . . . no mods yet!

Hope to see you guys at an upcoming meet - this is my first car (ever!)

Cheers,
Banman

The only thing that bugs me is that the car had over 300 km on it when I picked it up . . . the sales guy swore that it was only because of having it delivered from Richmond Subaru, plus PDI, plus the manager taking it home for a weekend. And I had to pay extra for getting it in blue (I was told it's the last blue wagon in Western Canada)

I just hope that it hasn't been beat on . . .

WHAT?? They made you pay extra for the colour?? That's total BS. It seem they make any excuse to scam you. First the car get more milage on it than it suppose to and then they say it's the last one in Western Canada?? If they're really honest they would of ask you if you want to wait for a new one from Japan.

I should clarify that I wasn't actually charged "extra" for the colour, but they wouldn't give me as good a deal on blue as with the other colours, because they apparently don't have any problem selling them in blue at MSRP or better.

At least I still paid less than MSRP for it . . . but I could have probably saved about $1000 out the door if I had bought another colour from Specialty (even Specialty said that they couldn't get me that price on a blue one, though).

That's total BS they gave you Banman.... plus 300kms seems pretty high to me for a brand new car! But don't worry dude, the WRX is a sweet ass car.

Why would the manager take it home over a weekend? That should've gave u some leverage to get the price down a slightly bit more..

As long as u'r satisfied with the purchase and that u got the car u wanted, that's what matters. Welcome to i-Club!
