Default Coming Home Boys!

Well, I have decided to make a return to the Subaru community.

I just got a puppy and need a bigger vehicle. After this winter I do not want to be without AWD (make a lot of trips to Whistler). Also miss the potential for tuning. Sooo...

I have a 2009 Forester XT (Blk) on the way thanks to 6th Gear.

I have some 18x8 Formula Mesh in Hyper Black on the way wrapped in 255's.

I am researching suspension options but plan on coilovers and Rear Sway Bar.

I will of course take a trip up to Rocket once the car is broken in for a downpipe and tune....maybe get talked into something else.

Also have the mesh grill, front bumper spoiler and rear wing on the way.

Will post pics when I get the car.

I'm back baby!

Welcome home Jamie. We knew you'd turn back to the Subaru side.

I'm not surprised you went with black too, considering your first RS was black. At least WON'T have to look forward to having your engine overheat due to a busted headgasket!

Warranty FTW!

We need to have another wagon meet! Bring out the dogs and kids too!

LaterZ!
Darren!!

Thanks D, good memory of the olden golden days. Black was actually the only color available in a reasonable time. MY first choice was the dark grey (like my Volvo) but blk was a close second. All my previous cars to the white Legacy were black and it is nice to go back....except for washing ALL the time.

doggie kiddie wagon meet sounds good!

Necro, nice.

BE , I got a French Bulldog, name is POOGER. He's a hair under 4 months old and cream/yellow/blonde or whatever you call it. Will post pics of him driving the new whip when it arrives.

Pooger is a HOOT. I just spent five minutes watching him do laps around the island in my kitchen (sliding, slamming into walls) growling the whole time with a bone in his mount and with the odd dive under the sofa or into his bed.

T5 went on trade, and a HUGE thanks to 6th Gear, Geremy for the EASIEST car sale I have ever been a part of. Seriously, if you are buying a Subaru go see him.

ASprect, every time I make a move to grab the cam he stops. What I gotta do is leave it on the couch or just carry it around....but if I don't sit still he will stop and chase me or look at me.
