I didn't get much sleep as I was leading a Learnlinc course from 12-2.30 am and then another meeting at 7 today. :tempertantrum

Blurry eyes. In fact I am so tired I may just come straight back home and get some sleep. The car might have to wait for a long drive.

I'm off now to work and drop the company car off and then get a ride down to Subaru.

Cheers all, catch you later

I will. Have to take a trip out to Northrocks. Very happy. All good. Suabru threw in front mudflaps, cd holder, 2 keyrings, nothing else.

They did a nice job on the pre delivery. A few minor marks on the step panel - noted. Some minor water marks but all possible to get out.

They didn't say any restriction on rpm - just to get it there gently for the first 500km. Vary the speed and give it some freeway running.

Smiles here.

Where is the bloody coin tray ??

Deja found it for me :)

Off to the M2 for a blast. I'm wrapped !!!!

As for the etag - yes, ordered one.

Thanks for putting up with my rantings guys during the wait. I'll be back later today with a quick review of the drive :)

Just because you wax "down under" doesnt mean you are in Brazil!!

Any other Sydney people who want to meet up with Candy check out the Sydney Meet thread and then they can take their own photos!

Hey Candy, well done.
At pre delivery, they told me to keep under 4000rpm till 5000km and it was best not to use the cruise control.

Hey Justin. There seems to be a lot of variation amongst dealers.

I spoke to a couple of other MY06 XT owners (one in Melbourne, one in Perth) and they got the same comment I got.

Use the rev range (sensibly), don't make the engine labour and vary the speed.

I also agree with much of what this guy says

The CD holder is just the the Subaru sleeve one. No biggie :)

I reckon Subaru should give a free umbrella with every new purchase:



Wouldn't that support their TV ad about the Subes coming out to play in the rain?

I'm glad they threw in the front mudflaps - look good.

Sounds good to me. I assume that is what you put in the storage area next to the back of the rear seat ?

I have my jumper cables in there atm.

I do have a long one behind the rear seat, but it's so faaaaaarrrr from the tailgate. A fold-up one like the Subaru's would fit in the cabin - probably where it should be.

I've actually rolled up my jumper cables and put it in one side of the bucket sitting inside the spare wheel.

So, did you change your tyres?

No, keeping the Geo's. I do have 4 Advans on back order and will see how the Geo's do until the Advans arrive

They did fine today and were pushed. I like the way you can feel them give - predictable

I've got a first aid kit in one side of the bucket and overalls in the other side
