I'm looking at getting a WRX in 2013 and trying to sort everything out. I was actually looking last spring into getting a 2012 STI but decided that the time and cost weren't right. Now it's getting towards winter and I'm looking again, and its a now or never since I really like the current sedan design and don't like the current impreza at all, so I really want a 2013.
I've never bought a new car let alone ordered one. My two biggest questions are, when should I order and do I pay after the car arrives or when I order? I'm not in a rush to get a new car, but want to get in while I can. My initial thought was to order around April and take delivery in early summer. I asked a dealer about ordering an STI last may and he said I still could. However, reading through some threads and the wait time I was thinking about moving my ordering timeline into February. If it takes 3 or 4 months its OK, I just want to make sure I would be safe in getting one?
Can anyone chime in on thoughts about when to order by?
I want a SWP Sedan Limited with dimming mirror, not sure about any other accessories, for 28.5 to 29k before tax. Does this sound reasonable?
I'm coming from a G35 that I've had for 7 years, and before that a 240sx that I had for 6 years. So this is definitely a different breed for me, but I'm a bit tired of coupes and want to give a sedan a try.
