Hey everybody I bought my 09 on saturday but waited till I got the tint done to indroduce myself.

I searched the Subaru website and found the car I was looking for in Van Nuyes, CA about a 800 mile round trip. No problem, I called ahead and agreed on $1,200 off base msrp. It was $25,200 and it included the short throw shifter and auto dim rear view. I'm happy with the price considering it was fresh off the boat and the only base black sedan in CA. Keep in mind the 09's havent arrived in northern CA where I live.

+1 and Welcome. My 08 was 152Kw ATW with a TBE exhaust and tune (15lb boost). Interested on what the 09 acutally puts out to the wheels. Plenty of power for me at the moment you should have some fun.

152kW is about 203 HP at the wheels, which is (from what my tuner tells me) approximately (varies from car to car) 50 HP over stock (115KW - 154HP). Peak power was only part of the improvements made by having a pro tune, as the car now drives better over the complete power band. It is also now more fuel efficent.
