The cdn info is showing three different headlights, base Halogens, Wrx led headlights and then sti led headlights there's a difference in the wording between the two that made me think the Wrx gets lesser headlights.

I wonder if the front lower bumper-cover in black is a separate insert?

I expect to go to the NYIAS after tax-season and if there is one there, I will try to take a close(er) look.

An article in the April edition of the Subaru Ambassador Journal claimed that the 2018 WRX was available for pre-order at local dealers. Subaru Ambassador HQ incorrectly stated that these pre-orders were available now, unfortunately vehicles are not available to order yet.

We apologize for any inconvenience regarding this misinformation.*

Can we add a column for US vs Canada? Sounds like there is a big difference in ordering, process, availability etc.

Heck yes!! I'm getting a Limited but Still debating the Nav package. I'm guessing it'll cost $1500 installed for aftermarket upgraded sound system. So $2000 for the factory Nav, sound, blind spot sounds attractive

IMO, BSD is something very useful and nice to have.

I'm driving since the end of 80's and I never had any problem to check my blind spot. I have SRVD (BSD) since July 2015. I never rely on that but 2 times I would say it kept me having an accident. One of these times was on highway, in a rainy night, I wanted to change to right lane and I never saw the car coming fast in this lane.

The most useful thing is when you put reverse, it will tell if something is coming toward your rear. It works even with a child, tested with my daughter.

So, we should not rely on that and drive like we supposed to but when it lights on or "beep", there is a reason.
Now, on the highway, in traffic, if I think to change lane, I first take a quick glance at mirrors. If there is a light on, I don't even bother to check my blind spot, it's useless and I keep my eyes on the fronts car.

It was not an option for me. It came with the "Sport" trim. Now, I really appreciate that.
If I had to choose between BSD and AC, I think I would choose BSD

You'll love it. My first >200 hp car is the '17 WRX I just picked up this week. It's absolutely insane; and I haven't even been driving it hard.

Yes, I remember in the beginning. I had a my00 2.5RS with 165 old horse power when I got my 2016 WRX.
The first 1000 miles are the longer

But the day, you'll get used to the power... You may find some default like the rev hang, the ditch in the power band near 4500-4700rpm and the power dropping after 5300-5500rpm. All those things lead to a poor drivability.

All those "issues" can be fixed with an AP and a good tune. Then after, you will really love your car

i had a 2007 "173"hp outback sport with short throw. that car felt fast to me despite its low hp. '17 wrx is is my first turbo and i sometimes miss a wimpy NA motor. only sometimes, though.

I had much more fun in snow with my former 2.5RS (2.5NA) than my WRX.
The rear LSD helped a lot and the power band seemed more linear.
It's more tricky with the 2.0T.
Too much power on slippery road

But a good tune help a lot to smooth the power and reduce a bit the turbo lag.

I went to my dealer today. Since MSRP pricing is out we did the initial paperwork for my WRB 2018 WRX Limited + Nav, with STI STS. Can't officially place orders yet, but I'm on the books so my sales guy will put it in the day it's possible. They sell cars at invoice price so the deal will be worked out once that is released.

I'll add my car to the spreadsheet and update it when the order is submitted.

Anyone have invoice pricing on the 2018s? Or is it just $300 more than 2017's invoice pricing?

Yeah, just add $300 more to the 2017 invoice pricing. That should get you close enough to invoice pricing.

My dealer charges invoice price. So I don't know my official price yet, until they release invoice price.

I've been working with 5 different dealerships yesterday and today. They do have invoice pricing. Have them check again for you.

This. If they have released MSRP, they also released Invoice pricing.

If your dealership is telling you they don't have it, either 1) he's clueless or 2) he's jerking you around.
