Hey all bought my first Subaru this summer and have been looking forward to playing in the snow. Glad I found this forum, there are so many upgrades that people have posted here that I have already earmarked most of next years tax refund.
If you're anywhere near the Tri-Cities, check out the Tri Cities Subaru Owners Club on Facebook. We meet once a month (or so), and many in the group go on drives. Really great little community with a bunch of friendly people who want to see other peoples' subarus, talk about subarus and even offer help for projects (even if it's just offering the name of a reputable and honest, non-dealership subaru mechanic).
