So they are dropping the car off at my office tomorrow. It was too late to prep it for delivery today. The car has 5 miles on it, so I know it hasn't been beaten on. The rear view mirror, however, is broken. Any minor bumps in the road and it vibrates and shakes such that you can't see anything. So they are fixing the mirror and prepping it and dropping it off tomorrow. I already paid, etc, tonight. Zero down, $542/month including tax. A very good deal. Probably not every last penny that I could eek out, but a solid deal. I never would Have gotten that deal if I waited for the 2018's.
I ended up going with a fully loaded STI Limited (lip spoiler). It also has the STI short shifted and various other plastic things added to it (bumper appliqué, the aforementioned read view mirror with compass, etc).
I drove a C43, a 340i, a standard WRX, and this car tonight. I fell in love with it. By far the best driving car of the bunch. I love that damn steering feel.
I am super psyched. I will likely break in the ej257 for 1200 miles, get a custom Cobb tune, and call it a day!

Little late to this thread but gonna give some input
I just recently purchased a base model 2017 WRB STi (with the WING ZOMG) as well as the STi short throw kit
I just passed the 1000 mile break in period yesterday so this weekend I'm gonna change the oil and romp on it
It is my only car and I absolutely am in love with it
And FWIW I love the wing on mine other people's opinions be damned. IDGAF what other think about it anyways since most people are a-holes to begin with.
Congrats. Enjoy the wingless wonder regardless of what the hoi polloi around here think.
I don't think I saw this coming either, but on the bright color. There are enough gray, silver, black, white and beige sh*t boxes on the road already.

as for getting WR blue, yeah its 'bright' compared to grey/black/silver/white... but its not THAT bright.
OMG, spending $700 on a single performance upgrade is such a waste on a lease. You guys need to lighten up. for a 3 year lease that is spending $233 a year in mods. Seriously don't think that is going to bankrupt him or feel like throwing money away.
Thanks for the info on the Guilia. I was about to go look at leasing one. But at that price I am beyond shocked.
