    Whaaa? Can't you just ask them to not add that? say you aren't buying anything from them that has that on it. That's nuts.

    That sucks. If you're buying new without a trade in, don't be afraid of buying from a far away dealer. There's actually a guy on this site that sells for $500 below invoice and ships throughout the US for $400.

    I've used Hassle-free car-buying experience from a nationwide network of certified dealers. - TrueCar a lot, it's a great little site. You can use it as a negotiation piece as well, look for prices around your area ~ 200 miles away. Find the lowest around print it out and take it to a local dealership. If you ask them to match the price they might grunt, but chances are pretty high that they will match it. If not, try another.

    I know it sounds nutz but it's true. I'm telling you. I've mentioned if they can not add it to the vehicle I want but they've said they can't since it's been already applied to the car, lol..
    Crazy I know, I've felt at times I want to report them to the BBB. I honestly think it's a cultural issue as well.
    That's cool about the guy that sells below invoice and ships across state, will have to look at that option as well.

    EDIT: let's not go in that direction. We have rules against race comments.

    I can back MichalWRX up. We ended up ordering 3 STI's and qualified for VIP pricing and "loyalty" discounts having bought multiple cars between the 3 of us.
    MichalWRX ended up with the best deal at $1700 under invoice factoring in his sick deal on his trade in.

    I was able to get a base for $34,185 with Navi,keyless, HK

    I'm really shocked Florida is so bad for car sales. A number of years ago my old man was looking for a truck and there were some killer deals in florida. Beat the snot out of the deals in ohio. Odd.

    Interesting article. I'm still stoked bout my sedan, but I'm sure this would ruffle the feathers of some early adopters if it came to fruition too soon:

    While I went with a '14 hatch, I was in the same boat as you. DGM was my first choice, with ISM being a close second. I just sold off my old silver '99 Maxima and I still own a silver '99 Forester. I owned the Maxima since new and I assure you that , with 45K miles on it, there wasn't a better '99 paint job out there. Clay barred, paint cleaned, polished and waxed on a number of occasions. While it was quite shiny, even at its cleanest, it just didn't hold a candle to clean dark cars.

    My thoughts are as follows:

    DGM: Gorgeous when clean, but hard to keep that way. Not fun to look at when dirty (which it will be after any sort of driving).

    ISM: Very nice when clean and so-so when dirty.

    Now, does either color look better in the '15 body style? I've seen pics of both, and I'd still have to go for the DGM, especially given the factory wheels. Given my past cars, you know I'm not a silver hater. But it's my second choice in this matter.

    Gang, please let's keep things civil. No name calling, no racial references, etc.

    I don't want to have to take time going through cleaning up the thread and I don't want to lock what has been so far a really good thread.

    If it's true, it was a smart way to clear out the 2014 inventory.

    I was just thinking about this last night. The dealer I ordered from bought a bunch of 2014 wrx's in February and has sold them to customers.

    It made me wonder if dealers specifically grab a bunch before new model years because they know several people will come in trying to grab a deal. It moves cars and makes them look good. At least that's my conclusion based on no facts lol.

    i just spoke to Clayton last week and will be able to tell from first hand experience soon if all the great things we hear about him are true. He seems like good people.
