So found out what happened to the keyring gift. 1 question of my 5 got answered! And genuinely I am pleased just to have contact.

According to Subaru the dealer had not updated my address until after they were sent out (after specifically emailing the dealer in September of the new address, they only did it seemingly just before I called them in December). So it went to my an old address that I was renting, whereby apparently it was 'signed' for. Good news is they are sending me another one, soonish.

I've also been told the car is in production now and with an estimate of 31st March??? for delivery.

I've been trying to call the dealer, arranged a time for 2:30. I'm not sure I will be able to post what the end outcome will be.

Just spoke to my salesman here in Perth. No such announcements here. He did confirm that their demo car landed in Perth before Christmas but is still in the compound.
Perhaps Subaru Australia want everything to happen in dealers on the same day....ish?

He did say he would try to find out if there is any further info on my car......🤞
It would make perfect sense for them to coordinate to have the event on the same day everywhere

Good news on the keyring at least.
In production "now" and delivery March 31 sounds like total BS and they have no idea and are just hedging their bets.

Thanks for the link Dean.
Looks like we'll be seeing a bunch of Australian reviews in the next few weeks.
Will be good to see some reviews based on our conditions and I assume a car tuned for our roads. Will be better when WE can give those reviews ourselves.

Sounds like crap to me too. I have an estimated delivery for 31 March on my contract and I have had no communication from either SA or the dealer since the order confirmation which was sent just a few days after I ordered the car. I do not have the keyring.
The way things are shaping up, I will be lucky to see my car in the first half of the year. 😧

WTF? "anticipate" means "we hope but don't really know". Delivery April/May? that is 3 to 4 months from Japan to Australia? These numbers don't add up.
You must be the only person SA has bothered to email. I was given info by the dealer and I know a couple of others have been as well and none have been contacted by SA via email.
What is your dealer telling you?

I agree-very vague. I ordered direct from SA with a contract date of Sept 8.
