Count me in, just sealed the deal this morning on an '05 Black FXT 5MT! :drive: This is my second Forester and 4th Subie. (Wife's had 4 as well and currently has an '05 Silver FXT 4EAT.)
Took a week, but peeled another $500 off the dealer and decided to pull the trigger. May be able to pick it up tomorrow, or will have to wait until Friday!:tempertantrum

I hear black is the fastest? :spinnasmiley

Sweet. I thought Crystal Gray was the sleeper of the group.

Congratulations! Sweet, now the both of you don't have to fight over who gets to drive the fun car.

Everybody knows that silver's the fastest. Duh! :D

Thanks for the good wishes.

Congrats on the new ride. Black is a good colour, but a real PITA to keep shiny. Silver & Gray is best (for lazy folks like me) when it comes to hiding dirt.

BTW, how many miles on your FXT?

Nice choice!

You're going to have a perma-smile for the next few weeks

(or like me, every day I get in my car)

:wink:

Not many yet, I've been having to work a bit this week, maybe 600 now. Break-in will be completed this weekend.

Yes, black is a PITA, but in the end I don't get too worked up over that. Enjoy it while it is clean and then...oh, well. Wife's FXT if silver though so I am sure she will rub it in. Las '05 in the region outfitted the way I wanted it, so black became my favorite color!
