Default The 2019 WRX/STI Orders and Waiting Thread

As the 2019 WRX and STI have been officially announced at this time and preorders are already being taken, in honor of the new model year (and as many before it) I'd like to start an official thread for people to share their experiences preordering/ordering and have open discussion about the process and anything else related to the new 2019 model year.

Details below, share your thoughts, discuss, and (above all else) have fun as we begin and end the final year in this iconic body style! (Eagle-eyes unite!)

Please feel free to post your ordering details here - Google Spreadsheet

WRX for 2019
With its 268-hp, 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged BOXER engine, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Active Torque Vectoring, the WRX is a performance and value leader in the AWD sport-compact segment. The WRX comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission and offers an optional performance automatic transmission, the Sport Lineartronic® CVT with manual mode.

Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is standard on WRX Premium and Limited with CVT.

The EAM uses dual LED indicators to display EyeSight status and alerts on the windshield, allowing the driver to see them without diverting eyes from the road. The AVH feature replaces the Hill Holder and Hill Start Assist functions and offers greater functionality, holding the vehicle on all road grades, not only inclines.

In addition to Keyless Access with Push Button Start, the Limited offers automatic LED headlight low and high beam height adjustment control as well as auto-on/off headlights linked with windshield wiper operation.

WRX STI for 2019
Powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged BOXER engine, the WRX STI increases horsepower to 310 with the help of a new air intake and high flow performance exhaust. A retuned ECU and stronger pistons also contribute to the increased engine performance. The 6-speed manual transmission features a revised 3rd gear ratio which helps contribute to faster acceleration.

The WRX STI brings rally-bred performance technology to the road with Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Standard handling technologies include Active Torque Vectoring and Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control. The 2019 WRX STI pricing begins at $36,595.

The WRX STI standard trim is equipped with the STARLINK 7.0” Multimedia Plus system and the Limited trim is upgraded to the 7.0" Multimedia Navigation system. Additional highlights to the WRX STI include an STI Sport Design instrument cluster with LCD, Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH), auto-on/off headlights linked with wiper operation and Welcome Lighting. WRX STI also has auto LED low and high beam height adjustment control.

New for 2019 is the limited production of 250 WRX STI Series.Gray models. The model offers a Cool Gray Khaki exterior, exclusive Crystal Black Silica badging and foldable exterior mirrors as well as 19-inch alloy wheels with black finish. The Brembo® brake calipers come in silver finish with black STI logo. The interior features black Ultrasuede with Carbon Black Leather bolster and Ultrasuede steering wheel with red stitching. Handling for the WRX STI Series.Gray is upgraded with Bilstein® STI sport-tuned suspension featuring Bilstein dampers for the inverted-strut front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension. The limited edition also includes Recaro Seats with 8-way power driver’s seat and Keyless Access with Push-button start. The WRX STI Series.Gray is priced at $39,695.

All models feature heated exterior mirrors, dual USB ports in the center console, rear seat armrest with cup holders and off-delay for the audio system.

Congrats! I will be joining you sometime this week, I think. Heuberger quoted me at $34,308 not including taxes and fees, but I don't think that's including the options I want.

Nice to finally see Carplay/Android Auto. I thought that we wouldn't see it until the next generation cars arrive which is strongly believed to be 2020.

Just bought a 2018 a couple months ago.
Had I known for the stronger pistons aha.. but oh well. Hope I could swap the android/apple audio system into the 2018 model.

This is basically the RA engine? What purpose does the RA serve in this case aside from being a collector's piece

10,000 worth of FHI carbon roof/spoiler, the right color brakes and the number plaque so that we can say that we got an XXX numbered STi.

Thank you for actually posting useful information.

Was quoted 36530 plus 489 fee (200+ miles away) plus about 800 for shipping the car from Heuberger. Ending going with a dealer 140 miles away for just a smidgen less than that. Overall price on sti only went up 500 including invoice and options stayed the same price 2500/2218 for the Recaro package.

Might it not make sense to wait one year for the 2020 WRX STIs since they're supposed to be majorly upgraded by then?

I would love the 2019 just for Android Auto. It allows my Google Maps on the phone to be displayed on the HU during navigation, correct?

I would also LOVE and Ambassador coupon. I understand there is a forum thread for that, however I don't have access (maybe I don't have enough posts? I lurk a lot... ha). Also, does anyone know if you can use the "$500 maintenance plan loyalty credit" in addition to an ambassador coupon? My maintenance plan coupon is expired, but I was curious for future use. Thanks for all the help!

Basically it's the same as the S208 from Japan below except with the standard STI/WRX setup (usual wings/roof/bumper and such).
