yeah I'm not super disappointed or I'm not going to be mad if it doesn't make it by the end of the year, but I was hoping that by now I would have more of an actual date for the ETA like the "by XX/XX/XX or earlier" that some people have gotten.

Can anyone else confirm how long their car took to get from port (email saying car is loaded on a train) to the distribution center (email saying car arrived at distribution center)?

My car took 23 days and I am worried that it took so long because it was damaged and they are trying to fix it.

Is there anyway I can know if the car was damaged and repaired?

Holy ****. My guess is it was snagged by another dealer that was looking for that setup for a customer they had and it was pulled out from under you. Thatís what happened when i ordered my 15 WRX Limited back in the day.

I ordered and waited 2 months. It showed up at the port and another dealer snagged it. I kept waiting and waiting and finally another month later the vin was identified as sold to someone else. So i had to reorder and go through it all over again.

I received an email from SOA last night with my VIN an updated ETA of Jan 9th or earlier.

I really hope that is not the case for me. I need to turn in my lease in a couple weeks on my current car and cant afford to wait for an order. My car shouldnt be that unique either, I ordered a limited with HK/Nav and added the homelink mirror and all weather mats.

How did you find out it was sold?

This is NOT what I want to hear about what can happen with a vehicle order. I've been waiting since last April for a new car to arrive and I might lose my **** if the STI order I placed 6 weeks ago falls through as well.

This should be a rare case. If you ordered and especially put money down, that car is yours. If the dealer has one coming through already but no one grabbed it, then that's usually pulled for someone instead of just going into dealer stock. Otherwise they wouldn't be good on their promise to deliver said vehicle to you which would piss anyone off.

I went and took a look at the car last night after work. I asked the dealer to leave the plastic on, but they must have forgot (claimed they took it off for inspection). They left all the plastic on the inside. I plan on picking it up next week.

Now for the part everyone is waiting for pictures!!!








I didnt realize the fog light bezel has changed so much for 2018 with the turn signal integrated into the headlight. I was planing on getting the JDM S4 LED fog lights, but now I will have to do more research because everyone I have seen has the turn signal opening.

I live in California, and ordered an STI Limited with wing delete and no other options - in black. I don't know if "what you order" affects delivery time. I do think I got relatively lucky on my wait time.

Awesome. Congrats on the car! I wonder if our cars were on the same ship. I ordered the same exact car but in white with two options. I'm in Oklahoma City. Should be receiving soon. Arrived at the distribution center on Tuesday, which is about 3 hours from me in Texas.

Oh awesome. I saw the ones on SubiSpeed, so it is nice to have an alternative a little cheaper. I had been planning around $200 for these, so I will have to save up a little bit for 2018 version. Too many other mods/parts already purchased, and I like having a bed to sleep in (as opposed to the dog house my wife would throw me in).

Cool, and yeah they are a little pricey but i couldn't stand the mesh pads on the front of the STI so i knew i was upgrading those immediately.

I highly recommend SMY Performance. Good pricing and fast shipping.

UPDATE!

ORDERED: 10/20/17
VON: 10/20/17 (Same date of order)
VIN: 11/14/17
PORT ARRIVAL: 12/05/17
DISTRIBUTION CENTER ARRIVE: 12/12/17 (Coppell TX)
DEALER ARRIVE: 12/15/17 TODAY!

Estimated arrival from SOA was 12/28/17. Way early!

Picking her up on Tuesday the 19th. Would get it earlier but front lip and skirt install isn't until tomorrow and their tint installer can't be there until Tues. I've waited this long so a few more days won't hurt. Plus, I'd rather see it in its complete state anyway.

Will post pics soon!
