Well, the car will be here this coming Monday. I did the financing approval today and did in fact received the lowest 2.9% rate for up to 63 months. I'm happy about that. One last weekend with my Mazda3, which I have actually really enjoyed owning.
As for my first mods - and I am not going to get too crazy due to warranty issues - are Weather tech floor liners, Rally Armor mudflaps, and some Continental Extreme Winter Contact tires, which I think would be a good set of winters. Not sure what size to get though. In the Spring, I will be doing tint.
I GOT IT!!!! Pics to come . . .
It got blue balls last night when I went to pick mine up... it had a loud metallic clattering noise when I made left turns on the test drive. It turned out to be a stuck brake caliper in the front, and was repaired today. So, hopefully I'll be able to take her home and persuade the salesman to give me some freebies b/c of the inconvenience.
Holy crap. Sounds like it is sorted out now, though man.
I gotta get a new camera because mine was recently stolen on vacation but here is a quick cell phone shot:
Zero regrets getting the DGM.
Got mine today!!!!!!!

Hey Wongjon, beautiful car btw. I got excited when I saw "Capitol Subaru" because that was where I might get mine too! I just recently started getting into WRX's, and I plan on purchasing the 2011 WRX 5 door, which looks like the one you just got. Any advice? I've been emailing dealerships around California, and the best price I got for the standard WRX is $23,587.00. I'm hoping to bring that internet quote in to Capitol this weekend and have them beat that price because I had such a great experience with their service last month.
Did you order a factory body kit (skirts, lip) with your car? I'm also thinking of getting a limited or premium since I plan on keeping this car for a while and want to enjoy my ride every second. Any recommendations on that?
Also, do you mind if I ask how much you got your car for? I'm torn between white, dark metallic gray, and obsidian black. The definition really comes out in the Satin Pearl White, but I like the "mean/aggressive" look of the darker shades, like gray and black.
Anyone else feel free to respond. I could use all the thoughts/help I can get. Thanks!
If you do go to Capitol searching for something, ask for Jamie Cassady (and tell him Jonathan referred you), he'll be able to tell you when the next shipment of WRX's are coming in. (Should be soon. I saw a couple STI's and maybe a WRX or two) He said that SWP colors were only 4 on the floors of Northern California. In fact, I requested a white base model, and they happened to have one coming in w/ options (short shifter, side moldings, rear bumper cover, and all-weather floor mats). There wasn't much negotiating b/c it wasn't a vehicle in their inventory.
Goodluck with finding your WRX !

The actual car was something like $28,390 or something like that. Michigan has 6% sales tax which is included in the OTD, as well as $23 plate transfer, and doc fee.
Thanks, guys, for responding so quickly and providing the info. I'm visiting the dealership this weekend (wish me luck!). I'm actually thinking of buying a Limited 2011 WRX 5 door in Satin White Pearl, Metallic Gray, or Obsidian Black. I want to enjoy my next call to the fullest since I plan on driving it for the next 10 years. Hopefully they can throw in the navigation.
Good luck! I just put a reserve on a 2011 4 door in DGM with the auto dimming home link, short throw, and spoiler for 26,600+tax and fees
