New 2013 OB owner looking for input

Got a new black outback and couldn't be more excited. It's the perfect vehicle for my family we are pumped.

We got a pretty basic model has bumper guard on it, and a cargo tray, but that is about it. Of course it has Bluetooth though its not the Bluetooth tech I've ever seen. Aside from the tiny things its an incredible vehicle and excited to be apart of the family.

In Montana where my family has spent the last 6 years and where we are moving back to is riddled with Subaru's. But this Sub is ours, and I want to make it ours.

So the question is, what should I do first or get first to make it feel mine, or better yet what accessories or parts do you have that you can't love with out?

Thanks all

19mm Antisway Bar and a good set of all weather floor mats. Possibly Body Side Moulding and Wheel Arch Mouldings, after that it's just window dressing. Congrats on the new ride and welcome aboard.

Personally I like my seat back protectors because I tend to throw a lot of stuff in the back from time to time.

I bought a set of Weathertech mats from a very nice guy on here. They are REALLY pricey full price so I would be patient and check ebay and other things for a discount that will come along. I do think the all weather mats are a must and the Subaru ones dont cover very much.

We all like different things. I love my puddle lights. lol

Its all up to you.

Pretty much your discression

Everyone has there own biases. Stop the junk with asking everyone's opinion. Check out the subaru options, pick the ones you like, need and want and add them to your subaru. Then spend some time and puruse this forum and figure out the idiosyncrasies of the car and mod it till your money is gone.
Enjoy your Subaru
