I contacted a local Subaru dealer here in Austin about a first right of refusal deposit. Apparently two other people are already on the list and they paid $1000 non-refundable deposits. Hopefully that was just exhaggeration on the salesman's part. I hope to talk him down by using my dealings with mitsu. Maybe he'll go for it maybe not. If not, Texas is a big state and TT&L doesn't change anywhere so I'm sure some other dealer would be glad to make a better aggrement.

If they are non-refundable, what happens if Subaru decides not to release the STi here or there are not enough to go around and that dealer only gets one or none? I don't think I would put a lot of money down on something I do not know for sure is coming.

The deposit is only non-refundable if they acutally get 1 for each person. If not then they refund the money.

They cant legally take your money. If you put a deposit on something that you cant drive and be sure you like it, they have to refund your money for it. Besides all they are gonna do is make interest in their bank with your money. Your basically giving them free money already. Theres some key points id use when you call them back.

Who did you talk to there, and how many people are on the list there? My folks live in Houston and I got my last car there so going out of town is no big deal for me. Thanks.

I just e-mail them off the website. All they wanted was my name, and my phone number. They will call me when they know more information. That's when they will want the check for the deposit.

I just talked to Alderson Subaru in Lubbock and I'm number 3 on the list. He said that they don't require a deposit until it's official. Hopefully they will get at least 3.

Just got my name on lists with three dealers here in the San Diego area.

At one of them I managed to get slot #1; they only want $100 as a deposit and won't take the money until they actually have ordering information.

Now we'll just have to see if I can get color choices and how much over list they'll go...

I know which ones they are and where they're located. I was wondering which one gave you the number 1 slot. And when you got on the list.

OK. I called a salesman at El Cajon Subie also on Tuesday the 11 or 12. He took my name and several numbers and told me he was going to speak with his Subaru manager. He called me back on the 12 and told me they weren't starting the list yet. I realize there is more than one Subaru salesman at El Cajon so I wonder what happened.
