Default New Guy INtro

Hey there all!!
I'm a new guy on the forum here but have had my XV since late October. I have a silver Limited and really, really enjoy it. I am in the Chicago land area and having been a Jeep and BMW guy, I like the combonation of 'rugid' and 'style' that the XV offers. To me, it is the best of both worlds. Although we didn't get the kind of winter we are normally used to, I was able to get anywhere I needed to when Chicago winter did appear.
I am a financial advisor and wanted something that not only looked good but could get me to any appointment when ever. The Subaru shows that I am responsable and savvy with my money. I hope that translates to me being smart and savvy with my clients money also. No one wants an advisor driving a car that is more than their yearly income so the Subaru is awesome because it covers all my needs and is great to drive.
I look forward to learning more from everyone and seeing what we all can do together in time.
Motor on!!!
Chuck

Welcome Chuck. I'm an almost newbie. I'm picking up my XV next week, but I started doing my homework here as soon as I ordered the car.

With currently 8,700 miles, I can give feed back with a few miles...let me know what you think...also, I posted about the airbox asking about it. Has anyone looked at it? There seems to be a lot of fabric and factory blocking in it...can that be removed for a little more air flow?
Thanks!

Hey, Chuck A, welcome to the site! There's only a few of you that have had your XV's for that long. Though I started the site back in July, I didn't get mine until late December, but ~7,000 miles later I am really loving it.

Thanks for signing up.

Silver to $50 an ounce, eventually!! The planning I do is more defensive based planning. I can explain more if interested.
Now at 9,050 miles...still counting. Not many cars that I look forward to racking up miles in.
