I was talking to the Subaru rep at the Pittsburgh autoshow last weekend. He told me the launch car in front of us was number 165 made. With all these autoshows going on all over the country and all those test/review launch cars out there, there's gotta be hundreds of these blue launch cars made already. From what I've read and heard they wont be making our special ordered WRX/STI's until all those launch editions are produced first. Some people say Subaru is a month or two behind. I disagree, with the quick pricing release last weekend and they opened up ordering at dealerships. We might be right on taget with an april/may delivery of our cars. Not this june or even later some people are saying.

First I've heard that statement. They only thing I saw on availability was that the launch editions would only be available for 3 months, not that they all were holding up the rest. My build order for my base with options has a April date on it for delivery estimate right now.

My dealership in Fort Worth is getting 5 Launch Editions. They also told me if you order a car, like my White Base STi with no options for example, there is an 18 weeks from order to delivery on the car.

Honestly, I bet they tell people that so that your enticed to buy the more expensive launch editions. They make the most $ off the launch editions anyway, more incentive for them to give you incentive to buy lol.

Dealerships live in thr now. They don't care what you want and will tell you whatever you need to hear to buy a car ASAP.

Although from what I've heard 3-4 months sounds about right.

bottomline it is worth waiting for the exact car you want when dropping 35-40k
Exactly!

I have never bought a new car off a dealer's lot. Always custom ordered, all the time. Not that Subaru has that much options compared to many other brands though... You're not going to have a 1 of 1 factory build with the STi, that's for sure.

How do they know that the car is "# 165"? Is there a number somewhere on the car that says? in the VIN# or a number plate....

First i have heard of this as well, when i ordered, dealer said the car hasnt even been built yet. I have read though that each launch edition is suppose to come with some type of engraved plate displayed on the car

That would be nice. Historically, numbered cars have better resale value than non-numbered cars. Not a lot, but at least a little bit more.

Time will tell.

Nice what language did you use? And i wonder when our ordered STIs will show up on dealers sites
I used javascript on the subaru.com site to coax their javascript objects to return me a all list of dealers, phone numbers, urls and then pasted that into a file and built a search spider in Ruby
