    Another newbie

    I wanted to say hi after seeing all the other intros. This community is awesome from what I've seen. I signed all the paperwork for my new 2011 sedan last Friday which is slated to get in Aug. 22. Holy crap waiting blows!! Even if it's the easy part, I just want my new car. Coming from an '06 Scion tC hah.

    Anyway, hello, and I look forward to lots of good times here. I'll probably put up some pics. You guys helped push me the last few inches on my decision after checking out what you have going on here, thanks!

    It is the Satin Pearl White. Im going to drive it stock for a few weeks to break it in and get used to it. After that i want to look into some suspension mods. Im sure the 265hp will blow me away so ill be good on power

    Im getting a set of winter tires, Blizzacks I think... Suggestions on that stuff?

    Thank you for the warm welcome!

    Do you guys think it's reasonable to ask for a discount on the delivery charge?

    My WRX was scheduled to come in on August 22nd this year, and when that day came, they said around noon that it was delayed until the 23rd, around 2pm on the 23rd they told me it was delayed until the 24th... it was the same story every day always claiming it would "definitely" be in the next day. Now on the 30th they have a newish story they started yesterday stating that "it should be on a truck coming in today." I know crap happens, but if they know why it's delayed each day until the next day they aren't telling me. When I ask them why it's delayed, they say they don't know and they've never seen this happen before. :/

    Am I just too anxious to get my new ride, or do you guys think I have grounds to ask for a few hundred off the delivery charge?

    Most dealers will not budge on the delivery charge.Maybe you can get them to lower the documentation fees or ask for free accessories ,or a couple of free oil changes.

    I would try to get something off the price of the car if not get something added to the purchase like a short shifter or something the car dosn't have for free.

    How did you get STI wheels on a WRX from the dealer?

    Thanks for the comments and tips. I got a free couple tanks of gas for the first few times I need to fill up and a break on the doc fees. I'm thrilled it finally came in. Got it tinted and clear bra put on! Here are some pics:
