Ok, so where can I get on a waiting list? I live by Chicago. From what I hear if the STi comes here it will be limited production, which is good cause I like driving a car that not everyone has. I want to make sure I get one though. So if anyone knows of a place in Illinois that has a waiting list or even taking pre-orders, let me know.

Thanks.

Well, I plan on making it around to some of the local Subaru dealers tomorrow(Sat) to see what they are doing. I would call but I think it might be better to do it in person. If not though I would come to Coloroda if I have to. I just don't want to risk not getting one if they are limited production. I wan't one so bad. I will let you know what I find out. Thanks.

Went to one of the local Subaru dealerships. I only went to one, the biggest one in the area, cause I figured if anybody around here gets them, they will. Well I was almost laughed at till I said I will get on one of the other waiting lists that dealers are starting cause I don't want to risk not getting one. After I said that then one of the salesmen took my name and number down and said I would be the first one he calls when they hear of an STi coming for sure or start a waiting list. He said to check in every once in a while. I told him he will see me at least once a month till I have an STi. I am usually there for an oil change every month or so anyway. I told him about the Legacy I have now and he actually described my car to me so I know he has seen me there before which I guess is good. They did have 4 WRXs with the body kit and 17s on that looked nice... must hold out.

I went to the local Subaru dealership yesterday for an oil change. This is the same dealership I go to every few weeks to show my face so they don't forget me and my interest in an STi. Well I checked with the salesman I usually do and him and another salesman both said the STi will be here in about a year at around $32k. This helps me to believe more now that the STi is coming since they went from almost laughing at me when I first talked to them to now saying it will be here

MKIVSupra-

Could you post the name of the dealership and their address? I'm moving to Chicago in July and want to get my hands on one, or at least get on a waiting list. It should be a nice present for my 32nd birthday!

Thanks,
-Chris

Thanks for the info. Does Chicago have any Subaru dealerships within its city-limits? You don't see 1/2 as many Subies on the road there as you do out here in the Denver-area...

Cruising

I don't think there are any in the city limits. I think if you go to Subaru's web site, you can get a list of all the dealers in the area.

Oh by the way, he will hold on to your check, and NOT cash it which was great!!!! and theres like 40+ on the list!!! I only gave him a check for 200 , he'll just hold on to it until the car comes in, and then the offical paperwork will then occur!

im also in illinois. i put a $1000 deposit and im the first one on the line and the only one so far.
i really havent talked to the sales manager about what he is going to charge me and i regret that we havent talked about it.
im going to all him up next week and see if he'll sell it for MSRP. i would pay $1000 over MSRP but anything over that i will just try another dealer.
i hope he just charges me MSRP.

I also live in Illinois. I live in the Chicago area and the dealer in Arlington Heights has my deposit and they have about ten people on the list. They put it in writing that the car would not be sold over MSRP and that the deposit is fully refundable. The dealer is Roto Subaru. They are also keeping me up to date with any news, except that there is no news to report lately. I want to know the price. It's driving me insane waiting.

I would not pay over MSRP. All my paperwork says MSRP. I was the first to talk about it at the dealership I went to. Then when I heard Subaru was taking orders for an idea of interest I went in and filled out a buyer's order back in October and gave them a $500 refundable deposit. So far now I am the first one on the list and there are, I think, 3 others behind me with actual "orders". The salesman told me that they got a memo from Subaru and STi allocation will be based on WRX sales. Make sure the dealer you go to sold a lot of them. If they sold some there is a good chance they will get at least 1 STi, but if I was 4th or lower on the list I would look elsewhere just to make sure I have a good chance of getting one. Even if you are lower on the list and you are still able to get one it will prolly not be till the end of the year if Subaru is only releasing about 300 a month.

I talk to my salesman pretty much weekly now. Whenever I hear something new I try to verify it with him. Sometimes he heard it sometimes he didn't. Now I know the color choices, I think. I am just waiting for the price and weight.

Good luck everyone. I hope everyone that really want's one can get one.

Production numbers

Hey all. I'm new to the list, but a long-time lurker.

I went to the Schaumburg Subaru dealership a couple of weeks ago .They claim to be the largest dealership in North America and are expecting 3-5 STis in the first run. I don't necessarily believe them, but I don't have access to any figures to agree with or dispute their claim.

They asked for a $5,000 (yes five *thousand* dollars!) NON-refundable deposit. Well... of course... I paid it and am #3 on the list. I was told it would be sold for MSRP. But my dumb-a$$ walked out without getting that in writing. It is written on the credit app sheet I filled out and signed, so hopefully they didn't shred that as soon I drove off the lot.

By the way, they cashed the check already - I saw it on my bank statement. I thought the sales guy told me they would just hold onto it, but I was too excited to really pay much attention.
