Default Looking for STi for less than MSRP (midwest)

Hey guys, I'm in St. Louis and I talked to my Dad about him buying a STi for the winter and then me buying it from him in the spring. It looks like a good opportunity

He says he'll keep it garaged and I told him he would need at least all season tires and he seems open to the idea, though I might just buy the tires and wheels myself and put them on for him.

My dad wants to get it soon, but the big subaru dealer here only gets one per month and I don't want the silver one coming in october... SO... my dad said that if I want another color, I have to find one for him to buy.

I'm looking for a Black (1st choice) or Blue (2nd) STi at or below MSRP located within 5-6 hours of St. Louis or Chicago. If anyone's seen any waiting at a dealer, let me know! Thanks!

you should try using the subaru.com website and in the top corner there is a search feature for dealerships around the st. louis are. some of the dealerships allow you to check their inventory. this is how i found my black sti in cincinnati ohio. i know there is a local dealer bachman subaru in louisville ky with a blue sti/gold rims going for msrp. funny thing is the car doesn't show up on the inventory list on the website.

yeah, I checked the subaru site. St. Louis only has two dealers and one has no STi's available. My dad's already talked to the other one with the silver. Just wondering if anyone's seen any others sitting around.

Funny thing... seems to be a good number of Subaru's in Cincinnati... and I travel there every week, so I guess I'll look around at Cincinnati dealers. Maybe I'll check in Louisville too since I'll pass through there on my way to Cincy tomorrow...

You should be able to find an STI for wayyy wayyy wayyyyy under MSRP, infact I had a dealer down in CT offering me an STI for $100 over invoice. (which is around $29,300)

I bought my Subaru in St. Peters, and they never have any available. Between that store and their STL store, they have a waiting list. My salesperson said they're only on the lot for a couple of hours. Given the demand here, I wouldn't expect to see on under MSRP for quite a while. There just isn't any reason to sell cheaper. Good Luck though!

Well, I'm in Cincinnati M-Th every week
I'm in Chicago 2-3 weekends a month.
I'm in St. Louis 1-2 weekends a month.

I'm willing to drive 5-6 hours from any of these cities to find one... so that covers pretty much the entire midwest. so hopefully i can find one somewhere!

I'm checking out the dealers in Cincinnati/Northern kentucky this week and next...

Jeff Wyler in Cincy will sell them at $500 or so under MSRP. See Mandy, she's been there a long time & got a few of my friends deals.

Webster Groves Subaru has had the same blue STi with gold wheels standing on their lot for several weeks. Checking the inventories, there are currently 5 STi's standing on dealers lots in St. Louis:

Webster Groves: 3 (2 blue, 1 black)
Dean Team: 2 (1 silver, 1 white)

Over on www.evolutionm.net they have two stickys that i think are quite a good idea: #1 Dealers that sell EVO below MSRP and #2 Dealers to avoid because of price gouging. It is pretty much a nation wide d.b. but very handy. Plenty of people have flown out of their area to drive back 4-8 hours with a car they were able to save a few thousand on. Anyone think this would work here at NASIOC?

Wagner Subaru in Fairborn has a blue one with silver wheels. They are great guys, and you could most likely get a good deal. At least a bit below MSRP. It's really close to dayton which is about an hour north of cincy. Approx. 5.5 hours from St. Louis.

If you end up making the trip I'm sure the owner will give you a ride beforehand in his white sti. It has a kickass Bridgestone airbag suspension that is amazing. He has a lot of race time under his belt so he definitely shows you the cars' potential

good luck

woah, when did this thread get resurrected?

I actually just checked the inventories around St. Louis and Chicago and found 5 black STi's. I guess inventories are a little bigger now so it's getting a little easier. There's one in Springfield which would be perfect b/c I could go there with my dad in just 2 hours.

but we'll see. My dad is leaving for a 2.5 week Taiwan/Japan trip this week. after that I'll head home to st. louis and hopefully we'll be ready to buy.
