    so far I got an offer for $800 below invoice, not msrp. This was just an offer looking so I think I can get it to a grand below invoice if you try. Remember don't forget to be willing to walk out and try another dealership if they say no. Last time they came up to me as I was driving away. For a wrx tr(tuner ready=no options) it would be about 23,300 / or for a regular wrx it would be around 24,300. So start off at 22 or 23 (for which car you want) and offer them that, then settle for up to five hundred more. Good luck.

    You can get the optionsfrom subie supliers same exact type that you can get from the dealer up to half as much including fog lights for $287 and arm rest extension for $110. For example.

For Those of u who bought ur suby brand new how much did u guys get Out the Door? thanks i found out some out the door prices from the forum but i wanna get ur input too and i can match range of prices
    After dealing with several dealerships, I decided to go with REZA @ Santa Monica Subuaru. He's very fair in pricing and their inventory updates quite often. I usually use their online inventory system. He has a completely blacked out bugeye powered by almost everything ESX Motorsports (his cousin owns ESX). I got my wagon w/ boost gauge, short shift kit for $700 over invoice.

    He's the type of guy that will turn his monitor towards you so you can see exactly what he's doing, the numbers he's getting, etc. Very upfront guy. Since he heavily modded his car, he'll even offer advice if you have any questions about what you want to do.

    On top of that, he gave me a VERY good deal on my trade-in. Do you know anyone (even a private buyer) that would give $7k for a 5yr old / 200k mi truck? Reza did.

    I also used the online inventory system as leverage. I went in knowing the sedans were moving quickly but the wagon has been sitting in inventory for over 2 weeks. If you do talk to him, tell him "anson" referred you. Remind him I traded in the big Xterra with the cop horn.

    So did you bother to check how many nore miles are on it after the Bodyshop guys got their hands on it Seems a bit odd it would sound like that when you get it back. We all know that scene inFerris Bueller's day off when the garage guys get their hands on the car.
    Hey guys, I'm back!!!

    my friend had a similar accident to yours and when he went to the shop where his car was being fixed. they told him that he had a cracked head. he checked the milage and the shop put over 100 miles on the car . stuff went down and they ended up getting him a new motor. he had an 02 wrx and he got a newer wrx motor for free
