Gave my dealer 1000$ non refundable

Told me expect to pay MSRP +1000$ and that they expect MSRP to be same as a limited STi.

We'll see.

$1000 NON refundable?

Did you get in anything in writing stating how much they'll agree to sell the vehicle for?

It would be pretty shitty for you to put that money down after they said one thing and then turn around and charge a $5,000+ markup on the vehicle. At that point, you either have to suck it up and pay it, or get lost and lose the money.

Interesting. My dealer floated numbers quite a bit higher than that, though it's all academic for me at this point since I picked up a red '18 last Thursday.

Yea I got a paper in writing from the dealer ship with my signature and the sales mans signature saying I reserved a 2018 STi RA in either Black/white/blue, in the notes it said I will pay MSRP +1000$.

Also if for any reason they cant get me the car THEN they will refund my 1000$ per the singed "contract".

I didnt put any $$ down as my dealership didnt have any pricing info or technical info available at the time, or ask for any $$ down. but "supposedly" my name is first in line for the "one" ra they will be recieving in december. Sooo i guess we will see if the launch edition gets to stay in the garage or not... haha!

I started searching for dealers who would take a a deposit on a MSRP purchase the day after the car was announced. Took about 5 calls to find a dealer who would agree. Three dealers had no idea about the RA ( no surprise) while number 4 wanted 3K over MSRP. Dealer 5 said let me do some research and get back to you. Called me back and agreed to my offer of a 1K refundable deposit and a purchase at MSRP. Wrote it up on a sales order as well. Hopeful that nothing will change when more info becomes available. Just want "first shot" at one of these. Both dealer and I agreed they will have no trouble moving car if I pass on it.

I wanted to, but by the time news came out that Canada was getting it, there were 3 people on the waitlist at my dealer. Since Canada will get even fewer than the US, I took it as a sign to forget it and move on. I found out just an hour after my dealer sales manager found out it was coming up here too.

200 is the estimate.

I have a spot reserved as well.
