Just had mine (5 of them) ordered!!!

Actually, I'm ordering 5 of them!

Well, I own an import car dealership here in Hong Kong. One of them is for myself and the rest are already pre-sold to friends and customers.

No price or ETA at the moment. But I'm guessing it will arrive late Jan and be registered and ready on the road around mid Feb.

For myself, I've ordered a White 6MT with no options. I originally wanted the very basic one with steel wheels and unpainted bumpers. Since I will be replacing everything eventually. But the car is still too new, so I doubt I will have parts to mod it, and I don't wanna drive that around while I wait for parts!

also one orange/red(demo color) 6MT, one black 6AT and other white 6AT and the final one is a BRZ 6MT

Lots of mods are planned for this car. But for the first few months, I don't think anything will be going on yet.

So far the parts that I already have are
Volk Racing G12 in 18"
Pair of Bride Low Maxx Gias
Pioneer AppRadio

Will keep you guys updated as soon as I get more info from Japan!

Must be pre production because toyota and subaru say may/june 2012.

You probably put in a pre order. You can't officially order until the price is set.

But hey hong kong is different right?

JDM cars should be producing and sold before anywhere else in the world.

So far, Toyota hasn't accepted the build orders yet. I've gotten the GTR in 07 before everyone else, so I'm not surprised if the production car gets into my hands before the official delivery dates anywhere else.

In Japan, the dealership will get their cars one or two weeks in advance, but held until the official selling date. We get the cars at the same time as the dealerships in Japan, but I just go ahead and register my car well before the selling date.

@Godzpeed Doesn't Hong Kong have some kind of outrageous tax on luxury cars like 100% or something? How did you afford one? Teach me your ways >_<

Import tax doesn't stop people from buying cars they want. Lot people in Asia make big buck. Good thing about the US is, blue collars worker can get high income because of the minimum wage, but blue collars in Asia get very little income in comparison.
FYI, my country has 130% import tax on all cars, and Vietnam has 300% import tax( from what I heard, but can be a bit lower) on Brand New cars (I don't really know their tax rate for used cars though).

Yes, I live in Seattle. I just moved here 4 years ago. I still go back and forth every year though.
Major impact of the high import tax is, manufactures start building facilities in Asia. Even import tax is high, people still buy cars.

There isn't going to be an exact release date (ie: april 14th). that is impossible. the car will be released and once they are available at dealerships they will be sold... no dealer in their right mind would wait and sit on a car for two weeks or even two days to sell it. once they buy the car from toyota and it shows up on their lot its for sale.

i call b.s. but then again if you're getting cars directly from toyota off the production line some way some how touche to you... the rest of the world doesn't operate that way though.
