Hey Everyone,

Don't have my car yet, but I walked into a Subaru dealership looking at the Outback but left leaning toward the Forester Limited X. New wife won't go for the Turbo.. Anyways, I guess I should post my question in the Shopping forum.. Hope to make my decision sooon and contribute to this forum..

side question, has anyone chromed the factory alloys? I know people hate chrome but I think on a sprak silver they would look great....

Welcome to the forum from Niagara Falls! :bacon:
I don't know of anybody that has chromed the factory wheels as of yet, and I'm not even sure how much that would cost.
I think it might be better to get a different set of wheels in a chrome or "Hyper" finish instead of chrome plating the OEMs.

Best of luck in your shopping, hope to see you posting up pictures of your new ride soon!

welcome from the other side of Illinois!
Your wife wont let you get the turbo? Why? My wife couldn't understand why I test drove the X after driving the XT. She kept saying "you know you want the turbo, so just get it". I'm sooooo glad I did. I wouldn't have been able to live with myself if I didn't get the turbo.

Probably because my current car takes premium fuel and I get tired of paying 350 a gallon... I think I might just get the turbo.. She really wouldn't mind. I'm running to the local dealer to test drive the xt..

Thanks for the welcome!! I'm planning on buying this weekend.. I'm still thinking of waiting on the 11's. I just wish I knew if any new features will be in the 11's. I'm getting 3K off msrp on either the x or xt..

At least your used to it! One of the only positive things about living on the Mississippi River side of Illinois is I can just cross the bridge into Iowa and instantly save $.20 to $.30 per gallon. Oh, and then there's the corn and pigs.
