Just got the e-mail today that my car was received by the dealership. It will be ready for pick-up early next week. As far as the dealers posting the factory orders on their site. My dealership never listed my car online and I checked regularly.

Congratulations, that is exciting news! I would probably run to the dealer just to see the car in existence out of sheer joy. I wish there was a closer monitoring status for these factory orders.

Congratulations!

The current STI does have a TORSEN-type limited-slip differential (for sure) and it is, I believe, the same R180 that we are used to.

Interestingly, Lapis blue is not a normal option on the Canadian site, although maybe you can still order it...

In my case, I wrestled between WRB and white. Our '02 Bugeye (which we are keeping) is WRB, so I finally went with white.

I ordered my 21 in mid March and received it the end of May. I also went with White! It's my first non black or grey car, and I'm very happy with it.

It looks like around two month timeline on average. I just wish I had ordered mine sooner.

Lapis blue would have been my first choice next to Magnetite grey metallic. I should have asked prior to ordering. It would have matched my 4 other Sti's somewhat.

It may be, in case the customer who requested the factory order does not commit to the purchase but that is just my guess. From where I am though, these STIs do not even sit on the lot for over a week before someone buys them.

This. I put money on mine... 5 months ago. but they said, if I didn't want it they would have no issue selling it. I expect that to be true

I checked the Canadian site (Canadian living in the US) before ordering in the US and you're right Lapis blue isn't available. It isn't available in Japan either, I wonder if it's a US only color option?

Well I called and emailed the dealer I was going to factory order from and no response, So I called the next closet dealer to do a factory order, and low and behold, they had the color I wanted coming in next month. It doesn't have one option I would have gotten (STS), and some that I wouldn't have (led dome lights are a waste IMHO), but instead of waiting until November, I only have to wait until the end of August and I am happy as a clam.

Donít know if this will make you feel better but I originally had the sts in my build but changed it when I found out it only 10% difference from the stock unit. Iíve had kartboy shifters on all my subarus and have been very happy with them.

I believe the 2015+STS has a 30% reduction in throw pitch compared to the 02-07 and 08-14 which was 10%. I may be wrong.

Short throw shifter, dome lights, spoilers on base models (in Canada) etc. are all added options the dealer installs. The cars are never built on the assembly line with out of model spec options (base, sport, sport tech).

Iím good. The only reason I was going to get it was it was on my last one so I was used to it after years. I do find it interesting how each year they change what pop package 02 actually comes with. In 19 it was led dome, all weather, vortex gen, trunk film, and STS. Now itís most of the same but removes STS and vortex gen and adds homelink mirror. Like oh what parts do we have left over from last year, okay thatís the package lol.

Get it without the STS and then buy the far superior Kartboy overpriced garbage. You'll be far happier with it.

I couldn't notice the difference. I've had 2 2020s. My first one was without STS, my second has it. I prefer the regular shifter to be completely honest. My first 2020 didn't grind into 2nd and my new one with STS does.

Finally got mine today. Ordered March, got it in July.

Iíd like to say it was worth the wait but man, I never want to wait like that ever again.

Compared to my old 17 wrx, itís just more lively feeling especially in the steering, braking, handling. Less torquey in the around town driving though. Itís great seeing that stupid wing in my mirror.

More civil then my 12 340/380 wrx. Although that makes sense. Definitely more comfortable. I donít think itís worth comparing the two.

Finally! Very glad to hear that and it sure was a long wait for you. I would have turned into ashes at that point. Mine seems to be weeks away now but hoping that stays the case.

I guess some tweaks here and there since 17 makes a slight difference. Never owned an STI myself so I only have my '19 WRX to compare. Only heard about how people talk about how WRX and STI cannot even compare and I am dying to see what it's like.
