I ordered my WRX about 3 1/2 weeks ago and it's killing me. This is a first for me in so many ways. I've never owned a new car, a Subaru, a car this fast, a car with AWD or one that handles as good. I'm beside myself with excitement. It feels almost embarrassing how excited I am.
Up until a couple of months ago I had a Lincoln LS for almost 6 years. I quite liked the car but got rid of it and have been driving a run-of-the-mill Camry for my commute for the past couple of months. It's just not cutting it in so many ways.
Is there any correlation between wait time and options ordered? Regular WRX vs. Premium vs. Limited? That was a theory I came up with last night to make myself feel like I might not have to wait another 8 weeks for the car to get here. I ordered an almost option-less base model WRX. I just threw in the top bumper guard and all-weather mats. I think I would pay an extra $1k to have it today. :/
The forums seem great. There's a lot of knowledge here and it's cool to see all the people who like WRXes a lot. I look forward to hanging out and maybe meeting some of you at events.
