This is a discussion on New WRX owner (hopefully soon) within the New Member Hangout forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; First, I thought about getting a GTI, but the seats were just too UGLY and VW's are not as reliable ...
First, I thought about getting a GTI, but the seats were just too UGLY and VW's are not as reliable as they use to be. Then I considered a Mini Cooper S, but again their reliable was an major issue and everyone and their mom has one. So after some thoughtful consideration, I knew the car for me was the WRX hatchback.
So I began my search, I searched all the dealership inventory (via their websites) in NC, SC, VA, GA, MD and personally contacted just about all of them in NC. I learned the hard way that there are not many to choose from, they sale very quickly, and most dealerships won't budge on price (because they know the samething I know).
But then I got very lucky and Parkway Subaru in Wilmington, NC (Greg was very helpful) contacted me about a blue one coming in. They were willing to drop the price a little bit and even throw in another option that I requested. So I jumped all over it.
The ETA is July 30th. It can't get here quick enough, I am so excited.

Wow, you're lucky. My dealer had my car "coming in" in a week and it ended up being nearly two months. Being so close to the end of the 2012's, I'm sure it'll be there soon. Congrats, post up some pics when you get the car.
