Picked it up this morning.

So far the car has exceeded all my expectations. I don't know how they've done it but the low-end torque is great and the transition through spool-up is smoother, yet much stronger, than the WRX. Increadible.

It's been raining on and off all day - perfect AWD weather.

The Canadian version with the pass-though into the trunk is 'interesting' ... we'll have to see if it's useful. Again, no side-light indicators; must have just been for the car show. The suspension is stiff but not harsh and I can confirm what others are saying about noise - those Potenza's are pretty loud. Good thing it came with a stereo!

I've been driving it around a bit - I still can't figure out what the gears marked '5' and '6' are for. :wink:

I can't wait to play more with the DCCD.

I'll post some pics of my baby along with this birth announcement soon. By the way, it was a late delivery, it weighed in at around 3000 lbs and we're naming him 'Scooby'.

Congrats, Lars and nice post. We must have been slogging it out in the Toronto monsoons together yesterday as I picked my blue/gold up from Downtown Subaru before the heavens opened. Didn't see you though. :wink:

I think I picked up the fact that yours is blue/gold from another post.

I did up a long account of my own first-day driving impressions but by the time I tried to submit it I had been logged out. :( Maybe I'll try again when I learn to type faster.

I was told that the model at the Auto Show was a European market car as no Canadian market car had been assembled yet. Thus no side-light indicators on ours.
