just some info for folks looking to buy, there is a dealer in san rafael, ca(about 10 mi north of san francisco) that seems to always have at least one or two sti's on the floor. i just basically waltzed in a couple of months ago and bought mine. at that time they had a blue/sil, blue/gold, and a blk/gold. none pre-sold. i drive by the place every day on my way to and from work, so if anyone is close and would like to know what they have, shoot me a note and i'll check it out for ya.
