Thing is, my local dealer has a monopoly - there isn't another dealer within 3 hours' drive, so they're not as ready to deal as others. I'm hoping to get feedback from people in other areas. If I can find a dealer that's moving them for pennies, I'll contact them and get a quote, then take that quote to my local dealer.
Then again, I might just forget about the whole thing and buy something else for my wife. We can get Subies at invoice through their VIP program, so there would have to be a really big discount on the 9-2 to make it competitive. And we're not totally convinced that we need two AWD vehicles, so we might go for something totally budget.
Near Syracuse, right in the middle of the state. I've talked to New Salem Saab a few times in the past about used cars they had in stock, I haven't checked with them for 9-2's yet - but I probably will!
and remember that the 92X does have a few things that the subaru version does not. revised engine mounts, slightly nicer interior, and a standard STI stering rack are a few of the "goodies" the aero has.
