My Vehicle: XV Crosstrek CVT Limited w/ Nav+Moonroof
Default Hello From Louisiana

I've been keeping up with Club Crosstrek for a few months now and finally snagged my baby, so I can officially post an intro.

I tried for several months to find a Tangerine Orange Premium w/ Nav all throughout the Southeast states with little luck... Finally got a call from a dealer in Houston on a Tangerine Orange Limited w/ Nav + Moonroof with a deal so sweet I just had to jump on it. It even came with all kinds of goodies that I'll have to make a list of and post lol. So without further ado, I'd like you all to meet my baby!





I put my first 288 miles on her from Houston back to home and by no means was I being light on the throttle. I figured my gas mileage would suffer during the initial break-in period, but to my astonishment the gas mileage is great even with a heavy foot!



Already got a list of mods that I want to do including:

Weathertech Digifit Floormats
Rain Deflectors
LED Interior Map Lights/Boot Light
2" Tork Lift ECO Hitch
Cupeez door handle protectors

Hope to learn a lot from the forum and meet some of you awesome people that I see post!

A few months is a good wait, but doesn't seem that rare for people trying to find *their* perfect Crosstrek, so congrats on finally getting it, it looks really good. I'm glad you are already compiling a mod list for the XV to make it even more yours and to suit the needs that you need.

Thanks for signing up, we can't wait to see how it all comes together!

Thanks everyone! Should be a busy week with all the orders for mods I placed lol. Now I'm just trying to figure out what's best for the interior. I dislike the "oily" finish left over from Armor All products... I saw Turtle Wax makes an oil free interior cleaner and protector, so I'll give that a try.

My cousin stopped by in his 3 week old 2013 Nissan Fronteir. I think they look pretty great next to each other lol.

Will that scratch the paint? Because I know it uses magnets

The back is very smooth and I made sure to clean both surfaces before installing to remove any dirt/grit. Once the shape is formed the magnet is super strong and I couldn't move it unless I took it off, so I don't think it's going anywhere. I guess you could place a piece of Saran wrap between the magnet and car to be 100% sure it won't scratch and it would still stay stuck.
