Actually.... they tried to rob me, after asking repeatedly is that for the premium package.... yes....
Well they were going to transfer the car for me (i wanted black interior) sooooo they said what city they were going to get it from, I got online and that dealer they were going to didn't have a premium 5dr black interior in stock. only base models, I called my dealer back and asked for the vin for my insurance, they gave it to me... sure enough, not premium. I confronted them they ran around and came back, well there was some confusion. you had said once that you didn't HAVE to have the premium package..... anyways this is the best we can do on a regular 2.5 wagon.... needless to say sounds a bit bait and switch to me, so no impreza for me, i'll stick with the good old 2006 sonata (I just hate my light grey interior, i spend soooo much time keeping it clean)
FYI the Stealer that tried to pull this was Annapolis Subaru
Glad i checked online before I drove 1.5hrs to get there

If you follow the link that I provided they have the premium package sedan + grill for 16,997. Just go from there.
I went to several dealers with this ad and got a couple more hundred bucks off the price. If a dealer won’t let you leave ask them what are they scared of. If they are truly providing the lowest price then their competitors will not be able to beat it by a significant amount (several hundred). If they still won’t let you leave then you’re not getting the best price.

Sounds about right.

We just got quoted $19,399 for an auto 08 Sube Impreza 5 door 2.5i w/ premium, & side door moldings. There's a $500 rebate so the "sale" price they're quoting us is $18,899. The competing dealer says he can't get his hands on one for us at all...so we don't really have anything to compare it to or negotiate against.
KBB says invoice is $18,743.00 (not counting molding). Edmunds says invoice is $18,551 (with molding). TMV is $18,826
Do we need to haggle further? Sounds like we're good? Esp. with 3.9 for 63 months.
In advance, thanks for any advice!

PS - Ateixeira --It's me, Hub Cap girl. Looks like we're going to have two Imprezas in the garage. Your hub caps are still in place and looking nice on my '97.

I just bought a 2.5 sedan with premium package... selling price was $2300 under MSRP, including all rebates... That is also what they are quoting in the newspaper advertisments around here...
What is the MSRP on the car you are shopping?

According to Kelly Blue Book, the MSRP is $19,640.00. When I build it on Subaru.com, the price is $20,820.
With our rebate, we're at about $1920 under MSRP.

Kelly Blue Book??!! Never heard of it!! Must be some fly-by-night organization..
The $19,640 is for the manual transmission model...
The $20,820 seems right... I'd shoot for $19,000 even, with another $500 off for the rebate... $18,500 plus TTL..
I didn't have too much trouble getting that....

Ha! You're right, it was for manual. Da! Sorry 'bout that. I just tried to configure with auto and it's not a choice for some reason. That's what I get for trusting shady sites nobody has ever heard of before.
Thanks! I'm going to email your post to DH. He's doing the negotiating. Might as well shoot for saving another $400.
