Default Newbie from the UK

Hi guys. I thought I would introduce myself. I should pick our Forester up Saturday, I say our because it will be registered in my wifes name but I'm paying for it. Our last three cars have been Japanese, two Hondas and a Mazda but this will be our first Subaru, its an 03 2.0X in Red and Silver. Got the all weather pack plus full dealer history and I cant wait as we are deep in snow and 10 degrees F here at the moment
This will be the second boxer engine in our household as I ride a R1200GS BMW most days of the year. I take the GS off road and looking to do the same with the Forester.
Be ready for lots of stupid questions
