Default New SoCal Crosstrek Owner!

Just picked up our first Subaru this weekend. After a day of driving it around, it blows away the 95 Discovery we have in the garage, both in fun and of course MPG.

Drove around town today and going to put some miles on it this week for work. I am hoping to get it to the desert this weekend.

Hi, thuronsim, welcome!

What trim/options/color did you go with on your new Crosstrek? We would all love to see pics if you can share some.

Congrats on the new purchase and thanks for signing up.

We went with the Premium Desert Khaki. Other than the all weather mats, nothing special. I like to tinker with cars so I figure a base model will allow me plenty of room to do some work in the future.

Going to head out to Anza Borrego this weekend for some fun and pictures, will post when I get back.

Sounds fun. Are there proper off-road trails in Anza or is it just kind of a do your own thing scenario?

@clubcrosstrek - Yes there are good off-road trails in Anza. There is also the ability to go to areas to do your own thing.

@AWDFreak - I would like to make some off-read modifications. My kids and I are big into the outdoors. The more time away from and distance we can put between us and civilization the more fun it it.

Sounds great, both for you and as something your kids will always remember. What are you thinking? Metal skid plate, more aggressive tires, maybe a 1" lift? Or are you going to go real serious?

Metal Skids plates are a for sure. Not sure about the lift yet. More than likely nothing more than 1". But I could be talked into more, would require someone else experimenting with that first. I am going to wear out these tires first, then look into getting others.

Good call. I am thinking more aggressive tires after the factory ones wear out, as well. Not sure about a lift or anything else, yet.
