    After several months of searching, I found my low mileage manual unicorn over 1,000 miles and two states away in August 2020, and it happened to be a rare turbo. I finally took possession of my wagon with only 76k miles and bone stock in September (a long crazy story, will share in another...

    Hello from Seattle! I’m picking up a 2005 Outback XT in silver on Monday. I have owned/co-owned around 7 Subarus in the last 10 years including 3 first gen Impreza sedans, 2 first gen OBS, a 14 XV and a 2nd gen legacy for a short time. Currently I have my 99 Impreza “WRX” with a EJ20 JDM swap...

    Anyone have thoughts on the exhaust options for the 2.4 XT? I've been considering a Nameless exhaust but it’s nearly impossible to tell the true sound & decibel difference between the 3 different setups in the vendor video. LP Adventure also has an axle back exhaust, but I'd venture to say...

    Is there an online list of all 2020 Touring XT light bulbs' specs, detailing [1] the bulb spec, [2] whether it is replaceable or not and [3] whether the stock / OEM is already LED or incandescent ? I know there is a partial / subset list in the owner's manual but it is far from complete.

    So I bought a 2020 Subaru Onyx XT. Still have a half tank of gas, but going to a fill up probably this weekend. Just wondering about people thoughts on using premium versus regular unleaded gasoline. What about mid-grade? I know there are benefits to using premium gas.

    It would be nice to have a Boost Gauge somewhere on that big 11.6" display. Like where it reads out the customizable stuff like Accelerator position, oil temp and coolant temp. What PSI boost is this thing running at anyway? Then I could forget i'm a old dad driving a wagon and pretend i'm 18 in...

    I know, I know another gas octane post, but I just got my car tonight, so bare with me. I have the new 2020 Outback Limited XT. In Colorado the lower octane level is 85, not sure why. The manual says to use 87 octane gas. My whole life I have used 85 octane. Do I really need to use 87 octane...

    I purchased the vehicle yesterday, however there is a TSB (loose brake pedal screw iirc) before it can be released; currently driving a loaner. Abyss Blue Pearl. Nav option with moonroof and RAB. I can’t wait to take advantage of this platform. We also have a 2018 Crosstrek Limited with the...
