well i finally bit the bullet and ordered a '13 STI hatch. had a hard time deciding between silver and the charcoal color. forgot what they call it. but i went with silver in the end.
ordered it pretty basic, homelink mirror, short shifter, and subwoofer. didnt feel like i needed anything else from the factory lol. and frankly 37k for a subaru is pretty damn expensive already so i didnt want to start adding all kinds of options and jacking the price to 40k+. i can buy a BMW 135i for that lol.
i was told to expect around 90 days time to get it. and my order cant be placed till after the 1st of the year supposedly. not sure if thats standard or if the vegas subaru dealer does whatever they want since their the only dealer within a 3 hour drive. seems like a super long time but i dont mind the wait. every month extra is a bigger down payment for me lol. cant wait to get it!!!
