still no one here???
1) Got mine from Livermore Subaruvoodue said:Where did you buy your STi's? How much did you pay and what color did you get? I have a Silver/Silver. I have not seen another STi on the road. I saw 3 EVO's last saturday 6/21/03.
damn... that is insane for an OEM sound system. no chances of getting a refund?StiBoy said:So I bought the thing on Sunday, without even test driving it. It was on its way in on the truck, they said which was due to arrive on Tuesday (Stevens Creek Subaru, San Jose). So Tuesday morning I'm driving to work, and I'm on the 680 North in Pleasanton (headed for San Ramon), and my eye catches the car carrier...and I saw it...the only black/gold one on the truck. Anyway, I was pretty excited at the time.
Paid MSRP plus the boost guage armrest, alarm option ($32,217). I think I got ripped on the sound system (6 CD changer, subwolfer, upgraded speakers)...$2,400. Which he stated included a $1,000 margin that he needed for giving me the car at MSRP. I did also get the Lojack, Prestige paint and interior treatment and the extended warranty.
The sound system is backordered, so I'm without one until Subaru sends one of the 7 in the country to the dealer. Apparently, some of the components are unique to the '04 STi.
well, my story was a weird one. last month, on a friday afternoon, someone posted on i-club's and nasioc's bay area forum that he couldnt afford his STi from santa cruz. so who ever has $700 for his downpayment/deposit, he would give them his spot.voodue said:Well please check in and tell us about your experience purchasing the vehilce. Anyone buy out of state? I almost with to Murley but my credit union wouldn't finance the car. I ran the numbers with Murley and it was only $400 to ship the car to San Jose! Cheaper than a plan ticket and gas!
I didn't think I would need the armrest extension when it came with the car...but now I can't live without it...voodue said:How do all of you members/lurkers like the armrest extension? I was thinking about it but don't know if its good with a stick. My wife has a WRX Wagon Auto with the extension and I love driving with it! I keep trying to put my arm down when I'm driving my STi. Its starting to bug me because I miss that extension. Do you think it gets in the way?
