Default Theoretical question

I've always wanted to do some sort of long distance or cross country drive, so I was thinking if it would be possible to pay and deal with a subaru dealer here on the east coast and pick the Sti I intend on buying up from a location either in florida or in California. Its important to me that I give whatever comissions to a local dealer though, so the idea of simply buying the car out west is no good. Do you think that such a setup could be possible?

Not until the rush dies down and dealers have them sitting around on the lots. The the two dealerships would be able to work out a deal and they would each get part of the profits.

It is possible, but the dealers would basically end up coming to an agreement on how to split your profit dollars. The only way to give your local dealer all of the profit and commission is to pick it up from them.

Good Luck!

I originally was going to buy from a dealer in the mid-west (I am on the east cost), but got scared off from some of the discussions of "break in." It seemed like the consensus was that a long, steady speed drive might not be the best thing for the car.

I've also seen threads, however, in which people passionately argue that there is no required break-in period on this car.

I decided I'd rather err on the side of caution.....

No break-in on a car? I hope you don't listen to those people.

Also, while a long steady-speed drive is not a good breakin, a long not-very-steady-speed drive is a fine break-in! And once you get home, all broken in!

Not quite sure why you insist on giving a local dealer $$$ when the business is with another dealer.

My suggestion would be to buy from Mastro in Tampa, then drive home on US19 to see the old highway system before all the old landmarks, old-fashioned (now abandoned) gas stations and motels crumble into dust.

Driving US19 end-to-end (Sarasota, FL to Erie, PA) has long been a dream of mine.
