just another noob - from Biloxi, MS
 
Hello everyone.

My wife and I are brand new to the Subaru world but we already love it. So far, the Crosstrek is doing great. My wife and I fight all the time as to see who get's to take it for the day.

Just got her last week:

Already got to try her out during a heave down pour / thunder storm. I took the roads avoided by everyone else and am now convinced that I'm riding this thing until the wheels fall off.

Looking forward to learning with and from you guys. Admittedly, I'm not new to the AWD world. This is the other car:

That's the wife inside the ... ahem... mitsubishi ... I know, I know... blasphemy lol.

Welcome! I am a Mississippi native but moved to Western North Carolina two years ago. I also have the beautiful Marine Blue Crosstrek! Glad to see you here!

Welcome to the site, roversix! The car looks awesome and, even though it's a Mitsubishi, those Evos are pretty badass.

Any big plans for the Crosstrek in your future?

Thanks for joining!

Thanks for the warm welcome everybody!

BTW, the Mitsubishi is a Lancer Ralliart; it's less on power than the EVO with no track-ready suspension and regular tires and brakes (still has a turbo AWD). In Subaru terms, it's the WRX to the STI.

The only thing I'm itching to "mod" on the Crosstrek is to change out the wheels for some bronze type alloys. Kind of an ode to the early STI's with the blue exterior coupled by gold wheels. Not quite sure yet because some gun-metal grays would also look great with this type of blue exterior.

Other than that... not sure what's out there as far as "mods" for the Crosstrek since it's so new.

Not much in the performance department yet, but some simple interior and exterior things are available to give it a unique look or to add practicality.
