Plus STi's are scarce in my area, there aren't any available. I felt lucky to get this one. Evo's can be had for $1,000 below MSRP - 3 or 4 sitting on each Mitsubishi dealer's lot around here.
I don't know if Subaru is going to open the pipeline on the STi in the future - now that I have mine I hope they don't of course

Went to Chase Parkway in Watertown CT to buy WRX, they refused to take my Grand Cherokee in trade, wouldnt even give me a price. Went right to Center Subaru in Torrington and got Kelly Blue book on Jeep and $2K off WRX. They are the best. When I called Chase to tell them I bought, they got mad at me, said I should have given them a chance. LOL

Yeah, some dealers don't even want cars more than 3-4 years old. They'll just wholesale them out for auction or something.
Still, in this competitive market, they need to work with you. Congrats on the Rex.

A friend bought a silver STi from the same dealer I did and paid $1k over MSRP. They got 2 in on Friday, he worked on them all weekend to get them down to $1k over. Both STi's were sold over the weekend - one silver, one black.
I've heard blue ones are hard to come by. Still totally satisfied with mine - just hit 1,700 miles.

STi for MSRP and room to negotiate!
I just bought a 2004 WRX from these guys with 5 options; Premium sound, Performance, Popoular equipment, spoiler and armrest for 24,100. I was very happy with this dealership and how they treated me.

§ "This holdback amount is "invisible" to the consumer because it does not appear as an itemized fee on the window sticker. If the car sells within 90 days of arrival on the dealer's lot, the dealer is guaranteed a profit even if the vehicle is sold to you at cost. Because of the holdback, the dealer can advertise a car at $1 over invoice and still make hundreds of dollars on the sale."
§ Subaru 3% of the Total MSRP (Amount may differ in Northeastern U.S.) http://www.edmunds.com/advice/incentives/holdback/ So If I'm Looking at a WRX STI at $31900 and HoldBack on this Car is Aproximately $1000, Should I Feel Confident with an Offer in the $31000 Range? And as Far as Reg, Tags, Title, & Liscence are Concerned, Can you do it yourself Or do Dealers Demand you Pay Inflated Fees [$400] for Minimum Wage Lackey Work as I Would Feel Better With a Nice Cash Money Envelope for the Vacume Man and Paper Chaser? In Closing I Just Wanted to Find out What Others Drivers Were Paying for Insurance on the WRX STI? Looks Like Edmunds Lists Yearly Insurance at Around $900. ThankYou for Your Time.

Dealers have to eat, I wouldn't expect them to dip into their holdback, especially not on the hot STi. I think if you can negotiate invoice you should be offering seminars!
#20 of 932 Markup? What Markup?
Sep 07, 2003 (10:22 pm)
Got my STi here in California; the Land of Terminator for Governor. My first offer from when I put a deposit was MSRP. When an STi arrived, the markup was ridiculous! $10,000! I'm sure many car stores around Cali do this to catch the desperate and impatient ones. The wheels weren't the ones I wanted. I waited a week. Magically, the markup lowered to $5,000. I said I'd wait, again. About 1.5 months later, my STi showed up. Markup? $2,500. I was at the car store when they told me this; I said I'd wait until the price was better. Instantly, it became MSRP. Of course, it wasn't that easy to get it down to MSRP, but if you're patient (and firm, yet courteous with the salespeople), you'll get the price you want.
Maybe someone in Cali will get an STi for under MSRP,
