Picked up a Newport Blue Manual 2.5X Premium w/cold weather package. We looked around for awhile, the Forester ended up being the best fit. There are fewer and fewer choices for vehicles with manual transmissions. I know that automatics are great for allot of people but we prefer more driver involvement. It’s nice to see Subaru offering a manual transmission with the premium package (the sunroof was a must for the wife) I just don’t see why they are not offering it in the XT like previous generations.

On a side note thanks for a great forum to research our purchase on, I am one of “those” people that over research everything. Definitely much easier to find out quibbles and what not.

Welcome from Ky. Pm me your photo links and I will add them.
Thanks, PM'd... Forgot to add that we purchased the short throw kit, and are waiting for the dealer to get it in to be installed.

No problem. Glad I could help. My next phone will be a droid based phone. I need the larger screen for internet forum surfing. Lol.
I like your wife's Forester. My primary vehicle is a 08 Civic Si, so I can understand you wanting to get rid of the wallow. You will have to keep us updated on the suspension setup on it.

Congratulations on your new Fozzie. We will be picking up ours in less than 48 hours!

BTW, I see that yours a PZEV ... mine as well.

But .... what do you mean by "cold weather package"? I am not sure whether we have this available in Canada ......

Welcome, glad you found us and the information to make a smart purchase. Probably can't wipe the smile from your face.:biggrin:

As you've found some great members already lending a helping hand, posting pictures for you:rock: You can help us now, by adding some vehicle info to your Signature. That way it'll show up every time you post making model specific responses easier. Just use the pull-down menu in Quick Links, Edit Signature and add basic info like year/model/transmission and you'll be good to go.

Enjoy the forum.
