If you are hoping for a better price through a group buy, 2012 may be too early for that.
I assume you agreed to pay MSRP?

I just got back from Gillman and left a deposit for a Dark grey limited. I did agree to pay MSRP. The sales guy said that the 21 they are getting are the ones that they specifically order. Nobody will have random stock available. They aren't even going to have one for the showroom. I'm in the top ten. I also stopped by Scion and the sales guy there said the FRS price will be between 25k-26k.

That's interesting that you were told you were in the top 10 on the list. I put down my deposit a few days ago and was told I was number 16...

Who did you talk to there?

I talked to James. He said he has for deposits and he thinks the manager has 4 deposits. The orders don't get entered until Thursday and James will be the one entering the orders. He also mentioned that he thinks the more popular options might get made first, so it might not matter what number you are.

Hmm interesting. I have been working with Wally (General Manager). I need to get in contact with James (Rutledge I assume), and see if him and Wally are on the same page.

Ok I just called all 3 Houston area Subaru dealers and all 3 said they are expecting to have a physical car there this week to look at and sit in and check out. All 3 made it clear no test drive though. Hehehehe. You can't blame a brother for asking.

I will post when they call me back with more info.

I emailed James there and he said he heard Thursday. But he also said to check with Wally (GM). So maybe Wally knows best...

Westside Subaru called me back and said the BRZ is suppose to be there on Thursday. Again no time frame.

That one may be easier for me to make than Wed. even though it's further from me.

Devin I thought you had decided on a Prius since gas milage on the MT was going to be so bad.
