Hello folks, I'm a new Subie owner and new member on here. I;ve had my Outback XT Limited 5MT for two weeks now and I love it. Garnet Red would have been my first choice, but I picked champagne because I live on a dirt road, and champagne is almost the same color as dust!

I absolutely love the car. The only thing I am disapointed in is the Automatic Climate Control. I've given up on it and switched to manual. Someody said it was nicknamed HAL, very appropriate :)

Welcome to the board! My ride is a dark green 98, I chose my color for the purpose of concealment under trees *G*

Hey sduford,

Congratulations and welcome. I've had mine (nicknamed "the turdboss") three months almost, and it's every bit as exciting as the first time I drove.

Pretty soon you get to love HAL for his inconsistencies. Way back when, Subarus were considered quirky. I guess this is the one vestige of those early days.

Any pics? I'd love to see it.

Enjoy.

Nice car. The Champagne is one of my favorites (right behind white/granite). I saw a champagne LL Bean and it looked great with those dark wheels. Would make a good first mod huh? ;)

Sly--

welcome to the board! your approach to color selection goes very well with the pragmatist nature of these cars....i think champagne also shares with silver the attribute of being semi invisible to cops.

i'd get worried if your climate control starts singing "Daisy" and locking you out of the car on its own volition....:eek:
