Welcome and congrats!


BTW all.... he's is from Calif...... 2 plates are REQUIRED by law.... he can still lose the plate bracket, but still needs to sport the front plate.

Thanx ye ol' Administrator !
Waitn' (ugh !) for Rally Armor to get their a** in gear and roll out those mud-flaps we've all been harpn' 'bout for the past 4-5 months ! That's one o' the mods I've been hangn around for ! Also, Hoen (Headlamps) makes some great Hi/Lo beam bulb replacements...and...gonna chk out the 'stock' Sub/Bike-Rack assembly and see how it matches up to Thule, Yak, etc...I already dumped that 'Crummy Chromy' Cadillac-front grille they gave us...didn't wanna hassle plasti-dippn all that stuff just to have it stoned, bugged & beat to death from all the N/Cal to OR drivn I do...AND IT WILL !

Other than that, havn a blast just gettn killer mileage w/my good ol' CVT in charge...was a stout 'manual' guy mosta my life but came to realize that technology certainly has come home as far as how the alignment of gear & motor have been matched & balanced...take a look at this avg/mpg pic from my last 352miler from Bend, OR to Chico, CA cupl days ago...cruze-control set for 63mph and never changed it...lotta up n down thru Mt. Shasta but...let the CVT do its thing...amazing...!
Take care...

Welcome Steeba! It does seem that "other" crosstrek forum out there is more geared towards an australian audience. Plenty of people from the states over here though!

Thats one good looking orange XV you have!

Sheeba,

I like the license plate mount. Question: is it hard plastic or does it have some give?

BTW, 41mpg is ridiculous. Very nice.

Wil, the lic/frame is a lil' on the poly-side...not too hard, not too soft. It kinda gives along with that whole front bumper assembly...fits all the contours like a glove, as well !

And...41.1avg/mpg is nice...surprised the heck outa me !!
