New member saying hello.

Hello everyone. I recognize a lot of you from NASIOC, where I've been lurking around for quite some time now, drooling over WRXs.

Well, now that the Saabaru is so darn cheap, i think the time is now to turn to the dark side and step up to the plate.
I never thouhgt I would be considering buying the Saab version, and in wagon form, but here I am doing some heavy duty research on insurance and the car in general. Hopefully I will have my new 9-2x aero in my driveway soon.

Just a quick question: All the add on options like short shifter/ compass mirror can be purchased and installed at a later date, correct?

And one more thing: Convince me to get a 9-2x aero! I'm 99% sure this is what I want. What a price! I found a cold weather, black 5mt for 19,600. Wish me luck, and see everyone here and on Nasioc.

Sorry for the strange diction but it's 3 am. Cant sleep, thinking about new car.

Re: New member saying hello.

Welcome to the boards. Believe me, once you get behind the wheel of the Aero, you'll know it's the one. The Linear and Aero are worlds apart.

Re: New member saying hello.

I took me a long time to pull the trigger on buying one (finally did it on May 31 at around 5:30PM).  It appears to be a great car.  I loved the car I had before and I am already liking the 9-2X more.  I had wanted a WRX since before they were released in the US and test drove just about the first one my dealer got on his lot that was not already spoken for when they first came out (just could not afford it at the time).  Do it and don't look back.  It's a great car and I'm sure you will get a great deal on it.  AWD & turbo = Yeah!

Re: New member saying hello.

Matric, $19600 for an Aero 5 speed with cold?  Run and grab it!  That would be the best deal so far under the new incentives.

Re: New member saying hello.

You will love it!  I have had mine for 3 weeks now, 750 miles and counting, and it gets better and better every day!  I had also wanted a WRX from the time they came out, and with the rebates last month, it was the perfect time.  You sure get a lot of looks from the Subaru people though! big_smile At the price they quoted, get it and never look back!!

Re: New member saying hello.

Alright, that sounded like a good price. I'll be looking at it this week if they still have it.
That price did not include tax, title, etc. just to clarify, but I'm sure everyone knew that already.

Any answers on whether or not the options can be added later? I'm sure they can.

What about voiding the warranty? Will an accessport or rear sway bar do it? I dont want to void that great warranty so early!

Re: New member saying hello.

I found the price online at the Saab exchange in Morton Grove, IL.
A friend of mine called Friday and they said it is still in stock. I also sent a general email saying I was interested and the internet guy, Mike Gargano confirmed it is a black 5 speed with cold weather.  As of this past weekend, it was still in stock on the showroom floor.

We'll see if it is still there when I am ready to buy very shortly. It will probably be snapped up soon if it isn't already. Then I will start looking again.

Yes, welcome. Please note, Topher is a metrosexual and Aba is an idiot. Everything else is elementrary. Enjoy your new car! Oh...you should come to some of the meets and take sexually suggestive pictures with parts, then distribute those all over the internet. It's fun.

Finally, read everything written by Eurospek.
