Subaru Outback, Wagon, SUV

Hi- My first post here. I have found these forums very helpful, but we just bought our first new car in 12 years. We bought on 12/31. Anyway, new to us is:
2013 Outback Limited
A few other plastic things added
MSRP: about $32,200
Paid: $27,400 (before tax, title, registration)
Dealer: Putnam Subaru in Burlingame, CA. Salesman was Adil.
Emailed all of the dealers in the Bay Area, and found a range of about $2K. We did not trade our old car, so this pricing doesn't reflect a trade.
Happy shopping. So far, we are really enjoying the car.

wow.. I paid $27K 11/30 for a 2.5i premimum / mooroof / pzev (all are in N Amer I think now ) so these deals make me feel really crappy. The sales manager made me feel like I was killing his first born.. I knew we could get to $26.5K 400 miles away but that was as low as I ever found.. Clearly I'm in the wrong area.

Sorry about not having gotten back to you sooner. The dealership is Walser Subaru in Burnsville, Minnesota. Their price is "what you see is what you get," meaning that they do not negotiate. The price we received was also on this basis.

Thats not a bad price at all. I paid 27,300 for the same car. I was being picky about the color and the dealer had to get one from another location. I got a few additional items like the wheel well arches, seat back protectors and side moldings. I was a little miffed because the only reason we got a moon roof was because we wanted the backup camera. . I think the premium + awp is the best bang for the buck. Moonroof, Leather, HK + nav are where they are making a big profit.

There are no current incentives - but you can still shop - I went to 4 dealers and there was a $1785 difference between the high and low offers (2.5i premium with all-weather and option pkg 1b).

I do not now whether you are still looking for an Outback, but Walser Subaru has this one listed:
2.5i Premium CVT with AWP and Moonroof Package for $24,998
A tad under $25,000 for a 2.5i Premium with the AWP and Moonroof Package seems like an amazingly good deal. And as always with this dealership, this is the price (no negotiation).
#3355 of 3392 2013 Outback 2.5 Limited Moonroof/NAV/Eyesight
Feb 02, 2013 (8:00 am)
This week I purchased an 2013 2.5 Limited Moonroof/NAV/Eyesight from a dealer in Atlanta. The car had some small accessory add-ons. MSRP was 34,500 before the add-ons. I paid $31,500.
This is my first Subaru and the fourth car I've purchased from a dealer. With my other three car buying experiences I was able to really beat up the dealers. My negotiations have lasted as long as two weeks over a single car. This was completely different. Over the 10 day process of finding the car I wanted and arranging financing I noticed that every car I was interested in would sell just after I would get my quote (online). It eventually became very difficult to actually find the car I wanted in the Atlanta area.
My takeaway from this is that Subaru's (or possibly just Outbacks) appear to really sell themselves. I might have been able to shave off a couple extra hundred $$ off my purchase price. However, at the end of the day I feel good about what I paid. The dealer provided great customer service and really fought for my business. I hope they made some $$$. One thing is for sure -- I am a happy first time Outback owner.
Thanks to everyone who posted on this board. This was a great research tool.

Ever go up to Taos? I'm sure the AWD will come in handy. Often.
