Wow. Yeah, I'd say that one's welcome in my thread.

Welcome to another E91 owner! Much like you, I sold my Subi Outback in favor of the E91, what an amazing upgrade, couldn't be happier. Best of luck with the new ride, wagons rock!

Cool! Good to meet a couple Subiephiles. I still love the brand, and will undoubtedly buy another one. My wife's dead-set on a 2013 3.6R, we drove a 2011 and 2012 and she's got her heart set on it. 2013 has some nice revisions, as well.

I really liked my 2.5 5MT Outback. If Subaru offered in a V6 with a manual, I might not have bought the E91. However, I'm glad I went BMW. The only two downsides are slightly less cargo space, and a drop in MPG. However, the upsides, particularly power, handling, and creature comforts, are awesome. Plus, I'm having fun styling it. Waiting for a new set of wheels and some other mods to arrive

It's a drop in power, for me, since I have a GT (Limited, but that's just leather and sunroof, plus an incorrigible A/C-integrated radio head unit that's impossible to make sound better). 250hp stock, but I've got a Cobb stage 1 flash right now, and had planned on stage 2 plus a tune, after I got an exhaust turboback.

But, I have been feeling less and less like modding, now that I'm mid-30s and too busy. I only own one car, and it needs to be my daily driver. I've not done a single mod on the GT, beyond the Cobb flash and a rear swaybar, in over three years. 130K on it, it runs just fine but..........I don't know. Felt like trying something different. The 328 is a wagon, which is awesome, and I really didn't mind the Steptronic.

I just really wish it had the Sport package, but oh well. Maybe I can find grey leather seats. I know I can always get a steering wheel and suspension setup, again if I feel like it.

Should be picking it up this coming Tuesday (or Wednesday), I can't wait. I had a buyer on my Subie that had backed out, but found another guy today who drove it and loved it. He's got his loan pre-approved and hopefully will call me tomorrow with good news.

Chomping at the bit!

Bought it last night!

So far, my impression is that the car is very strange. But, remember I'm coming from 12 years of Subaru ownership, preceded by a few years of Hondas. This being my first German car, it's just............well, strange.

However, the interior quality and all of that is great, as you all know, plus the size and shape of the 3 wagon are wonderful. I really, REALLY missed having a hatchback, and it's great to get back in one!

I'll try and get some better shots with the good camera over the weekend.
