We ordered a 2017 Crystal White Pearl 3.6R with black leather from Annapolis Subaru to replace the wife's 2015 WRX limited.

We ordered the car in early October with an expected delivery date of early November. We ordered Option 23 with Starlink, Eyesight, Steering Responsive Fog Lights, HBA, and RABS. We also chose the Auto Dimming Mirrors with Blind Spot, Protection Pkg 2 and the Remote Start.
MSRP was 39077 and we got it for 36000+ TTL.

With 100 miles on it we took it in to get tint at Absolute Perfection in Sykesville MD. We chose Formula One Pinnacle 15% on side and back windows. Llumar Air Blue 90% will be going on the front windshield in the spring. The tint looks really dark in the pictures because it's against a wall and the sun is coming from the right.

We noticed some buffer marks on the hood from dealer prep so took it in to a shop to have the paint correction completed. Clay, Sonax Fallout Cleaner, polish and sealant.

After reading through the mod thread we ordered the Subaru Forester exhaust tips. A quick trip to Loews to source stainless hardware and we mounted them up.

We kept our 2nd set of OEM WRX wheels and TPMS we had on the WRX so I polished and sealed those to get them ready to mount a set of 235/65-17 tires.

I love Annapolis Subaru. I buy any OEM parts from them because they have everything in stock. Insider tip: I also sit upstairs by the fireplace when I am having any work done there. Enjoy you new Outback.

Beautiful outback!

Very clean and sharp ride. Nothing like mine :)

Just a heads up, I don't think you can tint the front windshield with eye sight. But I could be wrong.

Keep us updated!

Thank you. I'm just the photographer. This is the wife's car and she keeps it looking sharp. We have. Even doing research and quite a few people have the Llumar Air Blue 80 or 90 on their windshields with Eyesight and no reported issues yet. Due to safety concerns we haven't done it yet.

We buy our parts from Jackie at the parts desk as well. I'll remember the tip about the fireplace.

We went to Annapolis to check out the sailboat races today and had a front row seat at the Naval station. Took a few pics while we were there.

Glad that you are happy with your dealer & service department. That makes all of the difference.

Enjoy!

I just picked up a set of 18x8.5 WRX wheels for $500. I'm shopping for a set of 245/55R18 to match the factory diameter. Not many selections in that size but hopefully I can find a set that has the rim protector on the tire.

The last time I bought TPMS sensors it was $200 from the dealer. A Subaru tech told me about a guy on eBay that sold OEM takeoffs on eBay for $50.95. I ordered a set earlier this week and they came in today as advertised.
