Post Blaze Yellow

Howdy folks,
I've been reading this board for quite some time and have found a lot of information very helpful. Well my question is about the Blaze Yellow 2002 WRX Impreza. I stopped by the dealer yesterday and he told me they only made 450 of that color. Is this true? I just find it hard to believe that they made 450 and 2 of them are on his lot.
Thanks in advance

That's how many they initially made but there is no guarantee there won't be any more. (I've heard that from SOA reps).

Also, I think there were less red ones made!

Don't buy the car because they only made 450, buy it because you like the WRX in that color.

Thumbs down

Yes, I've heard 450 from several dealers. My local dealer has one with AT, carbon fiber interior trim, sound system upgrade, security upgrade, and $1000 dealer markup (read: gouging) upgrade. List is $27K and change, with the markup $28K and change.

The color itself is an acquired taste. The quality of the paintjob on this particular example was the worst I have seen on a Subaru yet. Not a smooth spot on the car - so much orange peel that the paint looks like it was sprayed on over a hammered metal finish. I don't know what disappointed me more - the qualiity of the paintjob, the dealer markup, or the fact that the dealer will more than likely find someone who will pay that price.

Ed (make mine black or blue, thanks)

I talked to a sales guy and he said they had upped the number of yellows to 1200 when they upped the total number to 12000.
