This is a discussion on 2013 WRX / STI Orders within the Car Purchasing Forum forums, part of the ClubWRX.net Marketplace category; [QUOTE=00TypeR1071;2925187] Originally Posted by fr_awd Well it says you are located in chicago, so I wouldn't be surprised of price ...
I just got an email from my dealer with the VON number.
Ohh. Yeah I am dumb. Haha. They said I would get my VIN in 4-5 weeks from the 15th. On average.
Im that guy. But I do it for a different reason. I work in IT and I have to have the latest technology all the time so I can resell to others.
I think it is a pretty straight forward concept and I guess I can use my car as an example: I would have lost around $7-10k on it if I kept it for 5 years. Now, if I keep on getting new ones every year I will be out roughly $1000-$1500 a year so how am I' loosing money in a long run? For me it is a Win Win situation.

I thought there was supposed to be a design change for '13?

As far as I know and have read (and read a lot I have), the 2013 will be a carry over from 2012. Possibly 2014 as well, although I've caught some slight speculation that the 2014 may get a "face lift" for lack of better words; at the very least that is.
As for the August 15th date...that would be correct. As of 2:00 pm that day you could order a WRX, I got off work that day and went straight to my local dealer and ordered my STI.
I also got a short throw for ****s and giggles. In regards to the SPT exhaust (assuming that's what you ordered) it does sound a lot better over the stock exhaust that the WRX or STI come with. I've never been a fan of Nav in a vehicle but to each their own. I got quite a few options added to my 2013 STI. I'll be very pleased with it. Total was approximately 45K after taxes, titles, tags, etc etc.
No official delivery date (order placed Aug 15th) although if its pretty well customized in regards to options about 45-60 days seems to be what I'm being told by the dealer. In regards to the boost gauge, I got one as well...its just aesthetics but I wanted it ha. I did opt for the side moldings just because people are ignorant and a piece of side molding is cheaper than repairing a door ding/scratch or the door panel if severe enough.
None the less...After much debate the STI fell in the best option for me in regards to economical performance and decent luxury choices (nav, leather, etc etc) plus the AWD is a bit bonus. Too bad the new S5s are 65K on avg.
