    New to forums! Also need advice

    Hey all, I have been haggling with four different dealerships over the last week. I have finally narrowed it down and am about to make an order. If you can, read over the car/options and tell me if you believe its worth it. Also if any of the options that I'm considering ordering are even worth it. 2011 DMG Base model WRX with the following options: Short shifter, Boost gage, Fog Lamps, all weather mats, Auto-Dim Mirror, Illumination lighting, black duration shift knob, and the side body molding ( Is this even effective?) I live in KY, so i have to pay 6% sales tax, I've been told after numerous emailing, that i can get 27000 OTD. I would like to hear your opinions. Thanks for reading!

    I thought base model can't come with fog lamps? Have you seen a base model up-front? (there is no round space for fogs)...

    it has the option on the website plus the dealership said i could, since i didn't care about the spoiler and the sunroof i ordered the base model. If for some reason when it comes in and it doesn't have them, i will not pay for them obviously.. or they lose my business.

    I originally ordered mine with the Boost Gauge as well, but it did not arrive with one due to some supplying issues. I will tell you that I waited almost 13 weeks for mine, and it was well worth the wait! Now that production seems to be keeping up with demand, your wait should be much shorter.

    I went to a local dealer here in Pittsburgh and they had a base model and a premium coming in so i just snagged one of those (premium). I don't know if i would have been able to handle a really long wait...best of luck! and congrats on the purchase!

    The fog lamp is an accessory listed for the base model.It comes standard for the premium & limited.I think the base model comes pre wired for the fog lamp so that you can add it later.Will check but I think the bumper can be cut to fit fogs.

    That's a bit high on the price. In the future, go to edmunds.com and look up what the FMV of the car is. With your options, it's listed at $26,056 with an MSRP of $27,559 and invoice of $25,702. The dealer also gets the holdback on top of the amount over invoice. In general, 4% over invoice is considered a great deal, and beyond that it goes to good and so on.

    well i ended up getting 26930 OTD ... which is not a bad deal. The base price was 24304, which is 500 under invoice, plus i paid invoice price on all options
