#3863 of 10838 Competition is fierce...

And Subaru increased prices substantially when you consider rebates on the 2004s hit $2000 in some cases. So sales prices are still $2500 higher than last year.
You might lose some volume when that happens, and that's why I'm sort of against this whole "upscale" move.
AWD and 0-60 in the 5s make it unique if you ask me.
Navi and Brembos would only push the price higher. Subaru teamed up with MacIntosh for the stereo on the VDC early on and prices were so high that model never sold well.
Subaru will likely have to start the rebate game. This is why I was hoping they'd set prices lower to begin with. I've seen $200 under invoice, already.
PS Keep in mind July was a record for Legacy sales, August is vacation time

Just make sure they don't scrape the ground since the ground clearance is different.
Here in the NW they don't make a difference- cutting down a little of the splatter from your own tires doesn't do a thing for all the stuff coming from the cars around you. The difference between 80% and 100% dirty is minimal. They may save you from a small rock or two though.

#3867 of 10838 Question on Maintenance Coupon
Sep 02, 2004 (4:26 pm)
For those who mailed in his/her 3-year free maintenance coupon (and purchase receipt)to SOA, how long did it take before you received your package?

The mudflaps off the Outback should fit.
I don't think they will -- the Outback has lower cladding which changes the shape of the fenders/wheelwells and rocker panels where the flaps would fit. The two cars don't have the same shape in that area.
Subaru of America never released flaps for the WRX -- I had to import them from the UK!!

Can you tell me how to get the maintenance coupon?
Sep 02, 2004 (6:06 pm)
It took about a month to get the coupons in the mail.
Craig, did you ever get the coupon thing straightened out? Also, did you get the touch up paint off your back window?
BTW, the shipping from the UK must've been more than the cost of the flaps!
Sep 02, 2004 (6:07 pm)
Looks like you're right, Craig.
They'll have to be imported from UK.
~ GBP100 for front and rear which is ~USD180. Tag on shipping and possible tax, we'll be looking at ~USD200
Anyway, I think AZPInstalls is coming out with local mudflaps for the '05 Legacy.
the WRX mudflaps cost me USD190.

Dave- wow- that's a lot for some small pieces of plastic! It's probably worse now that the dollar has gone down. I was wondering about trying to get a small lip spoiler for the trunk of my GT LTD to replace the big one on the trunk now if they are available in other countries.
Ray- some people here have had coupons available and have been giving them to people. There might not be very many left though.
