New owner: 2019 Ice Silver Forester Sport

I finally traded in my 2011 WRX for the Fozzie. I miss my WRX but the gain on clearance, new tech and space is much more suitable to my lifestyle. I love to go backpacking and i always had to hitch a ride on my buddy's truck. Not anymore :)

But without further ado, here she is:

Nice!

Haven't seen a 2019 on the road here in LA yet. Shouldn't be hard to catch a Sport with that orange trim!

From Sierra in Monrovia? I stopped by there the other day and they had a well equipped Sport in the light silver. I'd been hesitant about the "orange" highlights, etc. and this was the first sport I'd seen in person. It really looked fine. Worked very well with the silver. Didn't stand out excessively and the black versus chrome treatment worked well, too. The interior was ok, too. That was a good looking vehicle.

Are the headlights orange? They don't have the distinctive boomerang white-LED konoji's?

Yea, i think Japan has the boomerang white LED Day running lights, but for some reason the US version Forester has just a projector DRL.

Actually my issue with the "orange" is with the trim features, "highlights?" as opposed to headlights. I suppose the headlights could have a slight color cast/temperature, maybe a bit warm versus cool but didn't look at them lit. With the trim, I don't mind the external orange bits, it seems to go OK with the colors I've seen so far. What I'm really uncomfortable, perhaps even unhappy with, are the orange interior bits on the Sport. The hard pieces could be retouched but the stitching along the dash, across the seats, doesn't do much for me.
