Thank you for joining!
Thanks all for the welcome.
I'm picking the car up on Wednesday. Thought it would be sooner but then again I wanted a Silver Ice without the bells and whistles, but I wanted Leather. Well, they had a Silver Ice base premium w/CVT that hadn't been physically delivered yet, and are having custom leather done for me. That should be happening today into tomorrow. I found that a great way to learn about cars before and after buying is to lurk around owners forums. Every car has it's shortcomings and you'll learn about them from other owners. I liked the way the CrossTrek looked and that it was basically a raised Imprezza which owners didn't seem too critical of on the forums I read. I thought it drove rather nice during my test drive too. I joined here because it looked like a friendly group. Some members here are members elsewhere too. I can't see posting all over the place so while I'll lurk at others, I want a place to ask questions, so I picked here. I'll post more about it when I get it later this week.
