After owning a couple of performance cars, it's a revelation to not have to worry about how you take inclines, declines, bumps and/or hear scraping in the process.
Also appreciate the seating room, smoothness and quietness - I must be getting old lol ;)

Never thought I'd own a Subaru, having had an Evo X in the past, they were the 'other' guys.
After looking at a couple of other makes, the unique wagon utility, value and features got me, especially with the SAP package.

Glad to be part of the community, now to find some light trails in the SoCal region once break-in period is over... :D

Some pics of justanotherstock Ouback - but mine :)

Here is a good spot to find out a bit about your OB's articulation in OC (which it has a surprising amount of) as I found out on a ATV trail in the Utah's La Sal Mts this summer. That escapade may have cost me a front strut.

There are several mild trails in the area to drive your OB on which you may already know.

Nice pics. Is it me or is the SAP "special" two tone wheel treatment so subtle that you can't really even notice it?

Beautiful car. Although I'm not hooked on the sea of black plastic around the fogs. Why didn't they just leave the white bumper with the recessed bigger fogs?

Possibly marketing? The idea that new is better? To differentiate from past models with the feeling of newness?

Maybe there cheaper to fabricate, though I bet the bulbs/lenses are not less $.


New. AHHH, that smell, that cachet!

I am not a smart car buyer, smart car buyers buy models a couple of years old with the bulk of depreciation already accounted for.

However in today's ridiculously valued used car market that may take a few years longer?

Appreciate the lead, I'm saving this info in my Trail document, looking forward to it when the time comes!

Very true, however I have noticed that if you see SAP wheels in motion, they look almost 3-spoke! Hard to explain but if you see them in motion you'll understand.

Indeed, no STi for now...must compromise for the time being...;)

Thanks Steve, I plan to join your flickr group and the colour is called White Satin Pearl I belive.

Beautiful car. Although I'm not hooked on the sea of black plastic around the fogs. Why didn't they just leave the white bumper with the recessed bigger fogs?
On the flip side, I really like the look! Just personal opinion but I find it more aggressive than the pre '13's.

nice choice. lots of luck with it....
Thanks!

Beautiful car! Welcome to the forum:)

Living in SoCal, I have the luxury of keeping her clean for a lil while longer!

Thanks for the warm reception!

True, but I think that holds true more for a high end car. Like a lexus off a 42 month lease that has been well cared for. My Subie dealer wants more for a low mile 2011 than a deep discounted 13

I don't understand that pricing at all. Who is the buyer is what I want to know? Strange.
