That sounds good to me, but I am sure others on here may say you can get an even better deal. The Crosstrek is so new, however, that dealers aren't budging too much on their prices; they know what they can sell them for while still giving you a "deal".
As for HP, I was very concerned about it, also, even after I test drove it. However, I bit the bullet and am very happy with it. Once you learn how to drive the CVT (very different than a manual or traditional automatic IMO) then I think you will see how the 148HP has more to it than meets the eye. Sure it's no rocket, but I still have a lot of fun with it, especially at highway speeds.
In my opinion, the rubber side moldings are more of a look than really help the doors that much. Maybe I am wrong, but I have seen more than a few instances where the side moldings wouldn't do jack against a ding. That said, I do have the moldings on mine and like the look, however a couple members are molding-less and it looks great. I can't comment on the bug shield personally, but I have heard that it does work wonders.
