I picked up my first Subie on Saturday.
2013 Satin White Pearl Forester XT Premium
It has 60 miles on it so far.
I love it!

Plan on getting fog lights very soon, looks incomplete without them.

And for the price, the BC's are tough to beat.

Me and the wife were debating on trading in my Wrx for this exact model. She doesn't want a standard tranny and I can live with a clunky 4-speed auto.... It looks dang sexy though.

I've been down that road before too! Here's my '11 3.6R with H&R springs & OZ Ultraleggeras.

I could have gone that route with 17's, but the Works in 18x9.5 were $$$. Those are Rota Torque R's in Titanium Chrome with 245/40 Yoko S-Drives.

Your 3.6 looks great - I just got a premium CVT in Graphite for commuting duty, I love the lines and got a stupid deal, its a great vehicle for the outlay, we are pleased to have. I may do some sways/end links but that will be it.
I still got my WRX tucked up in garage - may sell her, not sure, shes too much fun.

I love the new XT - Subaru make some good shiz

I got an amazing deal!
I got a premium over the touring due to not wanting leather, and not needing the extra equipment. (Also I like the black roof rails better)
But honestly I like my grey interior it flows well on the inside since its all grey and black.

I was searching for a SWP 09+ for about a year and couldnt pass up a new one for a very discounted price
