Just bought my first Subaru, happy to join the fam!

Hey all! I'm Lola, but my vanity tag says Princess (in 7 characters of course lol), you can call me either one.
I traded in an old 07 Cadillac SRX to get something more rugged, functional, and reliable. I've only heard good things about Subaru so I looked at several models and found a cute lil 09 Forester 2.5X L.L. Bean Edition with 90k miles on it. I've had it for 2 days and I'm in LOVE.
My favorite part is getting "the nod" of acknowledgement from all the other Subie drivers I see (not just foresters lol) so I feel a really strong sense of community which was also what led me to look at Subaru.

ANYWAY HI EVERYONE IM EXCITED TO BE HERE! I'm on Instagram if anyone wants to follow me (or creep) ;)

Welcome to the forums from Vancouver Island. I like how you are in LOVE with your new Forester, I've always liked how the L.L. Bean models are equipped; put up some pictures!

Aww thanks!! I've always been into and passionate about cars, because I felt like it was something I could really enjoy with other people. It helps me make friends to go to meets & gatherings and stuff, and even when I owned my turbocharged VW GTI I never felt connected to other VW drivers on the road the way I feel it with just the 1st two days of owning this car. Friendship is basically my religion lol.

I'm in GA, so basically as far away from OR as possible:(
