Anyone know what the current wait time on an STi is at Carter or anywhere close to the seattle area?

I'm expecting a large sum of cash to fall into my hands soon....

Indeed. . . Joe is the man. I'm still waiting on mine after 1.5 weeks, mainly because they're installing the options I want at port, and none of the ones I don't want. So it's worth the wait, but still not long at all.

Should be getting the call any day now. :eek:

Would anyone in the area be willing to take me for a short test-ride?

I certainly wouldn't ask anyone to let me sit on the left side of the car, but I am a bit anxious about things like road noise and ride quality that I would feel a lot more comfortable about if someone could take me around the block once.

Ride quality is better than one would expect. . . given what the car is built for. . . road noise. . . well, they're performance tires, riding on stiffer than normal suspension, and the cockpit is NOT plush. . . . don't expect a quiet ride. . . . then again, you don't have to shout to talk to the person sitting next to you, either.

If I get mine before you do, I would be glad to let you ride along. :)

I don't even have the money yet, let alone a deposit down anywhere, so I'll be waiting for you to take delivery on yours. Thanks a lot.


:D

I just picked my STi up yesterday from Chaplin's in Bellevue. I paid $1500 off MSRP after a couple hours of haggling. I bought my first WRX from a guy named Ron Everett at Chaplin's, and have never met a more kind, professional and courteous salesperson. They have three on the ground as we speak.

I wanted white (not a color they had), so they traded with another dealer to get me exactly the car I wanted. Great guys, especially Ron. (425) 641-2002.

f1 spoiler

Lately I've been thinking about getting white, and doing the all-white headlights and replacing the tail lights with aftermarket clears w/ red bulbs.

Really clean, bright white cars look really sweet sometimes....

Imma just keep my STi . . .pay it down as much as possible, and get one of the new Legacy GT wagons come 2006 or so. It'll make a great daily (freeing up the STi for more race applications) and the wagons are great substitutes for huge SUVs. :D
