Default 2011 DGM STi -> 2013 Audi A4 -> 2014 Audi S4

After owning her for 1 year:


The time has finally come and I have ordered a new STi just the way I want it. As I'm sure many of you out there have seen, the used market for them is so strong, that there are not many "deals" to be had on '08 or newer STi's... So after months and months and months of searching autotrader, craigslist, local and not-so-local dealer pages, I bit the bullet and ordered a 2011 DGM 5-Door STi from Huffman Subaru here in Kentucky. Robin was the sales manager that assisted me through everything, and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She was very very knowledgeable and promises frequent updates as the my order status/location.

Since I was 16 I have wanted an STi but they have always been way out of my price range. My first car was a '97 Celica GT, then a '97 Jeep Wrangler, '97 Honda Prelude (awesome car, did a lot to it), 2001 BMW 535i, 2007 350z, 2008 Civic Si, and finally my current car, a 2008 350z. This STi will be my first ever new car, and I am so glad I have been patient and saved for it. I have also had 5 motorcycles ('97 Honda NightHawk, '04 Yamaha F6, '04 Yamaha R6, '07 Yamaha R6 (Blue), and recently sold my '07 Yamaha R6 Raven).

I landed on DGM instead of SWP for the hatch, and I'm glad that was my final choice. If AW was still a color option, I would have jumped on it though...

I will be adding a ton of pictures as soon as my '11 arrives and update constantly from that point on. I have been searching the forums for what feels like forever, and couldn't be happier that I soon will officially be a part of the Subaru family =)

****UPDATE: as of Monday the dealership called me 3 days early and said my car had just arrived. When I went to pick it up, it was a 4 door, NOT THE 5-DOOR THAT I ORDERED!!!!! Subaru messed up big time because I saw the order form from the dealer and it clearly said 5-Door DGM. Long story short, they located a brand new hatch in Detroit, Michigan and overnighted it for me. They honored the base price even though this hatch has wheel locks and auto-dimming mirror. So happy that it's here now that I don't even care about the mix up. There is no possible way I could have waited another few months though... 11 miles on her when I pulled out of the lot!

(For some reason my 7 pictures are too big and I cannot resize... so added to Flickr!!!) Let me know what you all think, I'm beyond excited to FINALLY have my Subie =)

It's the fastest car I've ever been in and I couldn't be happier. I'm following strict break-in of shifting @ 4K RPMs or lower and see myself getting to that 1,000 mile mark in less than a week. I'm finding any excuse to run out for an errand or to just go drive because it's SO much better than my 350z and 1,000x more fun!

I am so excited! We are having snow and ice storms right now and my poor Z just doesn't cut it in this weather... Plus I'm really nervous about sliding into something so close to when I'll be trading it in toward the STi haha

Hope you're loving yours. Have you put it sport sharp at all or are you going to stay in I all the way through 1,000 mi?

It comes pretty well equipped and since our 5-doors come with BBS and fogs, that would have been one of the only things I would have wanted. I already have a windshield mounted GPS so don't need to drop $1,800 on that. What about you? I eventually will order the door side moldings, those look great installed.

My thought as well. The 5-doors come pretty well-equipped already. I also didn't order the navigation. I got invoice pricing on everything (car and accessories) so I got the seatback and rear nets, cargo tray, mirror with homelink, wheel locks (kinda regretting it but only $40 so oh well), and asked them to install the STS if it becomes available.

That's great! The dealership came in a little under invoice for my car and hopefully I can ask for some things like the cargo tray and other mats as a Christmas/Birthday present next year. Should have gotten wheel locks, didn't even think about it. Something I can grab after it gets here though I guess

Just an update...
I am really liking the car, but it is definitely going to be a weekend/errands kinda car for me. My Volvo is just nice to take to work and be relaxed in.

I didn't get any factory options on the car.
Dealer installed options were the tint, short-throw shifter, and trunk tray.

The tint was done when I picked it up and the short-throw shifter was done on Dec. 14/10.
I am very dissapointed with the dealership because it took them almost 6 hours for the install. I am pretty sure I could have done it myself much quicker.
They told me they will call me when they get the trunk tray.

I don't know what you guys mean by invoice (I am hoping it is not what the dealer pays), but I paid full retail with no hope of a discount. I didn't pay for any of the dealer installed options though so that is a little bright spot.
