This is my first post here. I am really excited about the STi but am very confused about the ordering. Many people say they have a deposit down at a dealer but the three dealerships here in Sacramento are not accepting deposits yet. I have my name on a couple of lists but the dealers say they wont take deposits until order info is given from SOA. Any ideas on this discrepancy?
Also, I have read in a couple of places, and also was told by a Subaru product specialist that I talked to at a local car show, that the STi will not just be distributed to dealers. The dealers must have an actual order for the car and submit the order to SOA before a car is allocated. This is to prevent price gouging. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
