Looks nice but believe it or not I liked your old one way better. Which is weird because generally I think the 05-09s are the best looking generation. Maybe it is the color that is throwing me. I've never been a fan of beige. Makes it look too much like a Camry. :P

I duno, your old one just looked more rugged. Had more of a manly personality I guess.

Yeah outbacks never looked right in Octogenarian Gold Mist, as I call it.

The other one may have looked more rugged, but this one is certainly just as capable, plus quicker and much nicer inside. I love it so far. As far as manliness goes, well, if I felt the need to prove anything I would have bought the less-practical lifted V6 TRD Tacoma. I could certainly do worse in that category. It could be a Jetta or a powder blue Prius:
The friends who have seen it don't think much of it until they drive it. One told me "Don't get me wrong, your last one was really nice, but it was a piece of junk compared to this one!"

I don't mind it too much. I like light colors that aren't white because they're easy to keep looking clean. When looking for a 2008-2009 H6 with under 75k, beggars can't be choosers! Didn't even really think much about color...probably would have taken anything but white.

Oh yeah I wasn't meaning to be insulting or anything. Just that the color makes a good looking car kinda meh. I like those cars in Red or Black. I like the 2 tone blue/silver too. My red Outback does a pretty good job of not showing dirt. My old Dark Teal Metallic Grand Prix always looked dirty... and when I first got it I was washing it once a week at minimum. It looked nice for a couple days and then looked dirty again.

My current GTP is really bad. Black cars look amazing right after you wash them... for about 5 minutes until they get covered in dust again. Once that car is finally running it will probably rarely leave the garage so I don't have to wash it constantly.

I thought the same thing until I saw it in person. I would have preferred a different color but it's better than some options (white, for instance). It's really not that bad. I really like black but I don't like keeping it clean. I sort of like the "wolf in sheep's clothing" aspect of the gold. It looks like a car a 60 year old New Englander might drive. Most probably don't realize it's got 245 horses under the hood and will climb up a rocky CCC trail like it's nothing.

My dilemma now is what I'll do when this 08 is way up in miles and I need to replace it (hopefully quite a few years down the road). The newest Outbacks still haven't grown on me. I drove a 2012 Legacy 2.5 recently and wasn't impressed. Besides, how could I ever give up my limited slip rear end and enormous sunroof (which I opened yesterday because it got above freezing!) .

Just picked mine up yesterday.
Already chipped the front end of the engine hood.

Default H6 sus

Love that red merlot color! Seems to be a rare color in almost any model year. I lusted after an red XT for months before I was able to buy my boring silver H6. How do you like the H6?

The color is awesome for sure. The H6 has a nice smooth linear acceleration, and has some surprising power. I really like the sound it makes as well. It is all very unique, and I'm glad i fell into this car. It is my first Subaru ever so it's a totally different realm to me. I had gotten a suggestion from a friend of mine to go for a Subaru and have no regrets taking the advice.

Ooohh, Ticket Machine. Red and a spoiler. Good choice. The more you drive it, the more you are gonna love it.

You may want to put a block under the accelerator pedal or get an Escort. Escort Radar Detectors & Laser Detectors - The Radar and Laser Experts - Escort Inc.

I will give you a tip: Make sure you use quality oil and it stays full. The AVCS needs oil to operate.
