They will soon be here!!! :D :D :D

So as you all probably know the STi hit Hawaii over the weekend. Sooo this means ?? I'm guessing 7-10 days to a port on the west coast! Perhaps a few more days for distribution, so maybe in two weeks :eek: or so we will have the STi!!! :D :D :D

What do you all think?

According to others, Subaru dealers in Hawaii don't go through SOA. Unfortunately ours are still at least a month off. However, I would be glad to be proven wrong by SOA.

Doh! Oh well. I was hoping sooner. :-?
All i want is to have it by the 2nd week of June. My Crew is planning a trip to Gingerman Raceway the 3rd week of June. I wanna break in the STI for a week and have it ready to go for the track. Otherwise its the ol' RX-7 again.

Surprised I haven't seen this particular issue brought up....I've read that Hawaii got 14 STi's, and it seems only 12 of those were "pre-sold" orders. HI's population is just over 1,000,000 and they got 14...I think this bodes VERY positively for the rest of the country and was just curious what everybody else thought. I'm also surprised we haven't gotten more (and more in-depth) initial impressions from members who were fortunate enough to be among the 1st owners. I don't mean to rekindle the debate over arrival times.....did the islanders know theirs were coming in advance? How much? I too am thinking we're maybe 3-5 weeks behind (hoping hoping)......

Well, from my understanding from the GM of the major Subaru dealership here is that he has already placed orders well into the summer. He is hoping that the orders are placed (roughly about 6 STi's per month).

Hey - thanks for the feedback Ditchanger.....any chance you'd care to whet our appetites with some 1sthand feedback/impressions? I'm needing to live vicariously seeing how mine's still weeks and weeks away! I was just thinking if they were arriving in your home state that readily we might be in better shape than originally thought....wish that translated to concrete knowledge though!

Well, I have posted my impressions on the first time I drove the STi in this forum...just look here for info. I wzs personally tryng to decide on whether to get a G35 or the STi...I think that first drive made me choose the STi. Like I said in the short review, the car is unmistakingly Subaru, but it sure does haul butt and handles just as good as my '99 RS with full adjustable suspension. I just have to wait until I sell my car to get one...and by the way...from what I gathered from the GM of the dealership I went to, the people who pre-ordered their cars got the colors they wanted...they even had a chance to change the colors.
