    I got ya beat. I sold my 11 wrx with 12,000 miles on it for $25,000 and bought my 12 wrx for $24,671 + $158 doc fee. The dealer showed my car as trade in so I didn't pay any tax. My 11 was black and I hated it so I figured if the deal was right I'd go for it.

    I really don't mind spending $1,000 every year on a brand new car. That adds up to $5,000 per 5 years. Now, if I would keep my car for 5 years then it would have cost me more than $5,000 to replace it with a new one. I'm also saving money on all the maintenance that I don't have to do if I change a car every year. That's a win win in my book.
    In 4 years I own a car worth $20,000 and you've paid $4,000 to rent 4 different cars, and paid a car payment for 48 months for nothing..

    Am I the only one not understanding?? I'm not bagging on you by any means dude, just don't really get your reasoning.

    I didn't see anywhere in the thread where you said why you've never really been happy with your car...

    There's a reason the car has been sitting on their lot for 200 days. I'm really surprised because inventory carries a cost and until they sell it, every day just costs them more to hold the car. The price is definitely several thousand high for the car. NADA puts the clean retail value at $24,025.

    ya thats what I was saying... but they would rather let the price "rot" then give me something less than they want.... oh well.. at the rate it is going, if i still really want it, it will drop another grand or so in a few months... dropped about 3 grand since march... i saw it march 2012 for $31,999 and now it is $28,840... I really want it, but not enough to put another 4k on my car payment, AND add 26,000 miles to my car.

    they kept saying "we are getting offers from local Subaru dealers for 28k all the time.. so that is the wholesale price." which is stupid... they were saying "We use KBB for loans.. and they price it at 33k, so 28,840 is an extremely good deal."

    I guess it's all good because I don't understand your reasoning either.
    Let me make it easier and say that I bought the car with cash (which pretty much I did) and every year I pay $1000 to own a brand spanking new one. That comes up roughly to $83 a month.
    In the going rate I will have a brand new car in four years worth $25k and yours will be worth $18-20k in the best scenario. Now, substract the $4k that I will spent within the next four years from the value of my car and substract the maintenance cost of yours. Is it more clear now?

    Also, I'm not really sure where do you get the 48 months of payments for nothing? - $4000 in 48 months would come up to $83 a month....

    I still don't know why you're not happy with your WRX and want an STI...

    At that rate of dropping the price, they'll reach the market value of the car in another 2 years (since it's still depreciating while it sits on the lot and has already lost $1000 in value just sitting).

    KBB isn't a commercial source for pricing. It's the most used consumer price guide because of good marketing to people who don't know any better, which also makes it heavily used and useful to dealers in situations like this where they can point to the higher (invalid) price. On the flip side, when taking a car on trade in, they pick whichever book has the lower price (assuming the person even knows about book values).

    I agree, the whole thing is stupid, especially the dealer who has priced a highly desirable car so far above market value that they haven't been able to move it in over 6 months.

    If you're looking for more performance why not go the stage 2 route with your current car? Or have you already done that? Oh yeah and I will second that kbb is garbage. If mr. Kelly printed checks he'd be broke by the end of the day. The only time I ever bring up Kelly is when used car customers want kelley fro thier trade in and are buying a used car from me. it's a pretty quick conversation, I just tell them "I'll give you Kelley for yours if you give me Kelley for mine" Once they see my asking price is 3k less than Kelly that is the end of that.

    If you paid cash for your car, that changes everything. Most people on this board finance so I was trying to figure out your logic thinking a 350-450 a month payment plus the extra grand it just wasnt adding up but I get what you mean now.

    Honestly part of it is just it is my favorite body style of STi. I will keep qn eye open but I guess for now I will keep this car. It's definitely a good car. I just always loved the 06/07 STi.

    But have you driven one yet? After owning my wrx I've driven a stock 07 STi and an 06 with 400whp on pump gas and to be completely honest I'd rather have my wrx for just driving to work everyday.
