I got my specb for $300 less than the VIP program, but that was after 3 months of searching and negotiating, and I did not get to pick my options. If I knew about this before, it would have saved me a whole lot of trouble and I could have gotten a STI short throw instead of a rear spoiler.
EDIT: Most dealers I contacted were still asking considerable markup of up too $4500 and selling a car at MSRP was not an option. They probably would have told me to take a hike had I went in with VIP paperwork. So I do consider myself pretty lucky to have gotten the deal I did.
