Default The 2018 WRX/STI Orders and Waiting Thread

As pre-orders open up for the 2018 WRX and STI, I wanted to start an official thread for people to share their ordering experience and have an open discussion about the process.



Feel free to post your ordering info here: SPREADSHEET




After 104 MY2018 inputs, here's a summary of the breakdown. WRB and WRX orders takes the lead this year!






2018 PRICING/OPTIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE

Not sure how that is possible. Pricing and actual options have not even been released. There is no way you have an actual allocation.

Smh, sorry I mistyped. I placed a deposit and should have their first allocation for a 2018 STI.

EDIT:
5/9/2017 - Cancelled my deposit. I'm having trouble selling my car so decided to keep it.

Can you please make the colors of the pie chart match the colors of the vehicle? It's confusing to look at when the red means WRB etc

+10, and we then have to know all the acronym... WRB, since many years, is a COLOR by itself ... but the others...
Example, mine is Black... so CBS

Yeah.. I'll try to fix it. I had it matched up before and it bugged out.

This is from the MY2017 orders, so its about 140 inputs. I also cross-posted on IWSTI.com so it may be a little more skewed with the STI purchases.

That dealership is closeby to where I work, but both are kind of far away from home, so I will be looking at Dealerships in Central NJ. Good to see they are showing you some loev. All the Dealerships in Central NJ, I gave my contact info too, and said to reach out to me...none of them have.

I guess dealerships don't want my money?

Ambassador email? That was in the 2018 Rumors thread as well. Some people are hearing mixed thing from their dealerships. Pus, we still don't know pricing and packaging.

Generally, Joe won't update his site until the info is concrete.

Thanks for fixing the colors. I'm surprised to see white is so popular but it looks great on the new platform.

I'm still debating WRB or CBS. I'm leaning towards blue because of the new tint inspection law in NY so I can't black out my cars anymore. And I think black hides the curves on the new gen too much.

I was looking at WRB. Im just a teeny paranoid with it sticking out too for my liking.

CBS Is beautiful, but I wouldn't be able to keep up with cleaning it.

I'll probably go with LBP, or DGM

IMO, DGM must be clean, else it looks dirty CBS.

That's what I was afraid of.

Heck, I was committed to LBP, but my VW Jetta is Tempest Blue, which is a dark blue. I want to switch it up, to maybe ISM, but The LBP looks beautiful and I am already used to dark blue lol.

decisions decisions...lol

I can see in the photo what everyone talks about with that color, and how it "changes" in the sun. I might just go with this color!
