Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I love all the colors but I'll admit that Satin White Pearl was my first choice. Not yet sure what kind of modifications I might make but I'm liking the way the mesh grill looks and I might consider the hood protector. This seems like a great forum and we seem to be a passionate group.
Welcome to the club! There are only a few modifications available for the Crosstrek right now, but if it is available, i'm pretty certain someone on this forum has a DIY written up (or can). Enjoy the XV!
