I know that nobody will believe me, but the waiting is not the hardest part, as Tom Petty said. The hardest part was picking out what color, what options and how much to spend. At any rate, I now have a new Dark Gray Metallic 2011 WRX Limited Hatchback on order.
For options I went with the Nav System, Short Throw Shifter, Center Armrest, Security System Shock Sensor and Turbo Boost Gauge.
And the best part, a great deal. 10% off MSRP.
Now the wait...... maybe Petty was right?
