We got the 2.5X Limited. But we used $1600 in Subaru Bucks to bring the price down from about $25k to $23.5k or so.
There's an idea - get a Chase Subaru credit card, and start earning 3% back. Too late to help pay for the car, but you can pay for service with it.
We've had the Forester a year and a half and have already accumulated another $800 in Subaru Bucks. I can pay for tires, accessories, service, whatever.
That directly lowers our ownership cost. It could help you stretch your budget a bit.
The Premium is a great value at about $23.5k nowadays. I know it's a bit beyond your budget, though. A new base 2.5X is right in your $20k range, though.

You should find the invoice price at edmunds.com ... currently invoice is about the price dealer will deal. There is VIP program that is invoice - 2%... you join a club like "Leave No Trace" with min of 6 months then you can request that letter and bring to dealer to lock in VIP program withour any negotiations. Also qualify for any rebate, incentive and options / add-ons are also in invoice -2% pricing, then add dealer doc fee & TT&L
This is also good for factory ordering on the exact car you want.

I doubt you'd get that kind of a discount. Truecar.com, which I find to be a much more accurate place to check new car prices than Edmunds and others, shows a 3.6R premium with a sticker of $26,690 in my area (Long Island) might be bought for a "great price" of $24,158. For what it's worth, when I bought my '08 Legacy Limited, the best local deal I could get was 9.8% off sticker and the best deal regardless of location was about 13.8% off. Both of those included $1,000 cash back from the manufacturer. With Subaru continuing to do well and the new models fairly popular (without any cash back, I presume), I don't think you have a shot at $3-$4K off. At $24K and change, the car is still a great value.

After spending weeks of studying different vehicles with my mother (basically anything with AWD) we settled on the 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium. After talking to a salesman and discussing what we wanted (CVT, White Exterior, HK Audio and All-Weather package) we go to the dealership and are greeted by a different person. On top of that, it's a silver car instead of white. There isn't a vehicle that fits our order in California or Nevada. The closest thing they found was 100 miles away with some extra things (auto-dimming homelink mirror + cargo tray) that the dealership threw in for free for the hassle. After signing the paperwork, we are told that the car is in fact being sold. However, shortly thereafter (about 5 minutes) they say we signed so it's ours and the other deal fell through. We got the car with about 300 miles on it, but at the end of the day the final price before taxes and whatnot was 22.5k, which is great. Included in that price (besides all those extras) is free oil changes/tire rotations for three years for the hassle and two free gallons of gas. I'm just glad we finally got the car! Dynamic styling, great fuel economy and incredible safety features made it our #1 choice. Haven't had a Subaru, hopefully it's worth it!

Congrats to you (and baccus).
Hopefully the dealer treats you better when it's time for service. Perhaps it was out of their control (the other dealer tried to sell it out from under them).
