Not from what I've seen. I see a lot of sedans in the general area (100-200 miles) but I haven't seen a 5-door yet.
Yep, you got it.
Well after 5 weeks to the day I got my WRX. But, it wasn't the one I ordered. It turns out a dealership in Silver Spring, MD had one coming in on a truck that was the color I wanted, 5-door but with a few more options than I wanted. So I bit the bullet and put a deposit down on it and drove over Saturday to pick it up. That meant I had to cancel the order I already placed with a different dealer but they were cool about it and didn't give me any trouble in refunding my deposit (YMMV).
I took it out for a bit of test driving last night on windy, banking mountain roads and it was a dream. I didn't come close to putting it to the test and it was still a blast to drive. My commute to work was never as nice as it was this morning.
Well it's all moot now. I have my WRX and got a few more options than I would have otherwise. I personally would not do the ordering process again, ever.
I am so happy not to be waiting anymore. Now I just get to enjoy it. I'm about a third of the way through the break-in period and trying not to be too rough on it.
Looks like the wait paid off, you must be excited!
Saving for a Subie.
Indeed, it's all I can think about at the moment. I've already plotted my route home and it's not even close to the most direct route.
At last.Congratulations.Now that wait wasn't so bad,was it?

Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.
Are you kidding me? It was horrible. In fact so much that I went out and found one almost 3 hours away to go buy instead. I think it was the very definition of "bad". I am not good at that waiting stuff and all I can think about is how many days I missed driving it!
