Have fun with the out of state registration(non california emissions vehicle is a headache, you bypass the normal 5 year before smog and immediately get put on the routine smogging, you also have to pay a smog impact fee even though it's a new car). Should have shopped around a bit. You wouldn't get that good a deal on one, but $500-$1000 under MSRP if you haggle well for an 05 STI, one of my friends just got his from stevens creek, gorgeous crystal gray. I got my wagon from stevens creek(John something, real nice polish guy). I walked in said "$7k down, .9% financing(it was only for 04s at the time) and I refuse to pay a penny over invoice. If you don't want this deal I'll just go visit the boys in redwood city." He looked like a frieght train hit him and kept trying to steer me into an 04 for that price, after his second attempt I got up and started to walk out when the manager comes flying out and asks what he can do to get me in a car from them. I repeted my demands and he said "done". It was the very first PSM 05 wagon unloaded from the truck, I got it for straight invoice(without their bull**** $250 advertising fee even), I paid $650 for the 7yr 100k warranty, and got .9%.

You just have to know how to haggle. NEVER EVER buy a car from the first dealer you look at., make then fight for your business and don't let them waste your time.

Actually smog impact fee went away back in 2000 or so I think. And at the time that smog impact fee was around, it was only $300. The STi is a 50 state certified car, so he won't have any emissions issues, and since he's getting it through a dealership, and purchasing the car in CA, the seller is responsible for smog charges and fees to make it pass anyways. Additionally, had he purchased a used car in CA (even an '04 from a dealer), he would still be put on the 2 year smog plan as opposed to the new car 4 or 5 year smog plan. So really the only thing he's out for is the wait time to get the car here from Miami and maybe transfer fees.

i purchased my 04 wrx from stevens creek. i purchased it off their internet sales and they gave it to me for 21.9k new. it was a great price so i bought it. no problems. although when i walked in i asked for the internet guy mike, and some sales man was like "oh yea he told me to take care of you" so he sits me down to fill up paper work and i get on the phone and call mike. sure enough the guy was trying to steal the sale. mike was there and i made the purchase through him.

This is what happens when you *don't* buy a car from Steven's Creek Subaru.

(They keyed my car twice after promising me financing they could not deliver on and the deal falling through. These guys are the scum of the earth.)
