    Hopefully getting my WRB soon...

    17 days and counting since I put my "hold" on an incoming car. It was supposed to be in in May, but the dealer said that she didn't get the VIN number and wouldn't think it would be in until June... I haven't heard anything from her in over a week so I'm going to send an email tomorrow hopefully hearing they have a VIN or a date the car will come in or something... I was lucky to find the car on their "incoming inventory" and thought I'd have it by now, but unfortunately that's not the case. Lol, what makes it worse is that my buddy just bought a 2011 BMW 135i. I heard rumors saying that Subaru isn't making anymore WRX's and it's gotten me a little worried, I can't wait to get this car!!!

    It sounds kind of suspicious. If the car was actually in shipment to her, scheduled to arrive in May, she should know the VIN. When I placed a hold on my car, the dealer told me the VIN before I put down a deposit.

    Well, she told me that she didn't have a VIN when I put the car on hold and didn't expect it to be in until June... Doesn't help the matter though, just makes me a little worried about it...

    If the wondering is becoming a bother you can call Subaru of America to get the vin (if it is in transit then they do likely have it). All you should need is your VON and the dealerships name that you bought the car from. Subaru dealers have suprisingly little information regarding the wherabouts and ETA's of the cars they order.

    I called SOA twice during the agonizing wait; they were quite nice.

    With the VIN, do you think they could tell me the ETA?

    Yes, they will know the ETA as well. Granted, they don't quite know for sure either, but they will give you an ETA that is generally within 1 week of the actual delivery date.

    No luck, just called and they couldn't give me any additional information... No VIN, no ETA

    Oh wow, I just noticed you were from NW Burbs too. I've lived in Hoffman Estates all my life, just moved down south last year for a job. I'm getting mine from Countryside Subaru, where did you order yours from?
