Subaru Accessories – Body Side Molding

Body side molding is one of those accessories people either love or hate.  The idea is that should someone open their car door next to your car, or a wayward shopping car is rolling towards you, it will it the molding and not the door.  In many cases, when deciding which options to add to a Subaru, my customers need to walk out an SEE with their own eyes, exactly what “body-side molding is”.

Subaru Outback Sport – Inspiration for the Crosstrek?

Subaru Outback Sport

Ed’s Theory – None of my co-workers agree with me, but I feel this car, the Outback Sport is the inspiration for the amazingly popular Subaru XV Crosstrek, now called simply the Crosstrek.  Subaru offered the “Outback Sport” in model years 2003 and 2008.  Unlike the “Legacy Outback” which was the original name of the Outback, the Outback Sport was built on the Impreza frame.

Crosstrek STI is here

Calm down boys & girls!

This is the new Subaru Crosstrek STI. It’s the first one we’ve got. It’s a trim package not a performance change so if you like the look of the STI spoiler and STI shift knob, this is the Crosstrek for you. You can get one with the STI wheels too. Most likely it will be in the 2017 Crosstreks that we see the full STI edition.
