    Damn we have a bunch of old farts in this forum. Ages are gradually being revealed which IMHO makes it interesting. So I guess the Crosstrek is a draw not only for the young and adventurous but also the old, young at heart AND adventurous.

    200 over invoice is pretty fair. Everyone is going to have a different experienced based on any number of factors, location, demand, etc. I was hoping to get below invoice but it didn't happen at my dealership.

    I'd have to go back to my paperwork but I'm sure I paid more than 200 over. I didn't post it here but I could. I don't feel like I had a great deal but I didn't want to drive to other dealerships 1+ hours away that were offering better prices.

    At 72 I wish I could say that money is no issue

    But I say GO FOR IT!!! Even if money was an issue. When it comes to what did you pay, I ignore those threads. Different countries, different states, different cities ... supply and demand coming into play. If you have a good relationship with that dealer, continue it. If it's a few dollars more, less than a few hundreds, consider it a tip or a gift to that dealer for giving you great service. Plus it is HERE!! Why wait, why fret over it. Go for it and enjoy it!! Congrats on your new Crosstrek!!!

    I wish there was a dealer in Hawaii that would sell for only $200 over invoice. With only 2 dealerships controlling the state and having a monopoly granted by Subaru, depending on which dealer you pick you have the choice of paying MSRP or MSRP + additional dealer markup.

    How much does it cost to have a car shipped from the mainland?

    Update:

    Well, I decided that I would not ask for anything else. Essentially we made the deal on a handshake. Trying to get more after this is not a reputable thing to do. I like to think of myself as a decent person. This would not have been the right thing to do. The car was all ready; licence plate on, all the paperwork to sign, etc.

    Yea..if I left money one the table, but it was left as soon as we made the deal with a handshake 2 weeks ago. Shame on me.

    And yea..I love the freakin' car. I have to say (XT) not withstanding..I like it better than the Forester. Please understand I am not running down the Forester. Its the absolute best in its class. The XV is not in the same class ..its just a different class of vehicle.

    Thanks again all for the sound advice!!!

    OMG I can soo relate to this! I suspect that I am the oldest forum member IN YEARS ONLY. I run with a much younger set (<70) hence I can't really relate to the oldsters.

    I'm nowhere near the oldest here. Though there are many people at work who weren't born when I graduated college. So I'm not a kid either. I guess I'm middle aged. (That's where your age shows around your middle. )

    It helps that I don't look or act my age. In some ways, I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up.
