Default Bob Baker Subaru $500 Below Inv. - San Diego Subaru in Oceanside

I just bought my new 2018 WRX Premium for $500 below invoice from Paul at Bob Baker Subaru. I was super skeptical because I couldn't get a nearby dealer (I live in LA) to even do invoice. I tried to get the -$500 to -$1000 deal from the NJ dealer here on the forums, but apparently they don't deal with Californians anymore.

I was super skeptical about Bob Baker Subaru, figuring that maybe I'd make the 104-mile trip out there, and they would try to sneak in advertising or dealership charges, but there were none. It was literally the Edmunds invoice price minus $500 plus tax, license, registration, and an $80 doc fee. According to Google the doc fee can be as low as $65 in CA. So I guess I got burnt there 😏

I asked if it was cool that I share my deal on the forums and Paul said he'd be happy to extend the same deal on any Subaru to anyone on the forum. So, I guess just mention that you're from the forums and he'll cut to the chase. I was in and out of the dealership in just under and hour including the test drive. I am positive that if you are a hardcore deal hunter and price grinder, you can find a slightly better deal. But if a no-fuss $500 below invoice sounds as good to you as it did to me, there's one waiting for you in SD, CA.

Any ideas if this offer is still good and if it would apply to a base WRX? I am looking to lease at the end of May or early June.

I don't know why it wouldn't still be available. I would try to talk to Paul and maybe let him know that you heard about the deal on the forums - Just to make it easier to cut to the chase.
When I asked him about it, he made it seem like he would honor it for anyone at any trim level.

For the record, I don't know him, nor do I receive anything for referring people to him. I just thought it'd be helpful for folks in the market
