In March of 2020 (hehe what a time to buy something) I got a 2018 Crosstrek Premium 6MT in CGK. Here's some initial pictures from that day:

Little tid-bit from the last picture: My first 'car' was a 1999 BMW 528i. Me and my friend went halfsies on it, with the sole purpose of taking it apart and learning all we could about it. That influenced me to move to Japanese automobiles.. He now has an MT from '03. E39s will always hold a soft place in my heart, thus why I still have the key.

When I got it, the car came with:
Factory Trailer Hitch (update: not factory. Previous owner installed a 2” Curt. This car did come from the factory with the smaller Subaru installed one)
All-Weather Floor Liners
Rear Setback Protector
Carpeted Floor Mats
Aero Crossbar Set
Auto Dimming Mirror W/ Compass

I figured I should start posting stuff here, so here ya go. Installed the CURT trailer adapter this weekend. Ran it through the BSM port in the left rear of the car after disassembling the interior. Only had to un-clip the bumper off slightly. Spliced a 5-pin flat trailer harness instead of a four pin, as I will be using the four pin to run a reverse camera. Both devices will be powering brake, reverse, turn, tails, & license plate lights on a bike rack. I used curt holders for the 5-pin and 4-pin vehicle side harnesses.

Installed some Infinity Reference REF-3032cfx speakers following good things heard from this thread. Process went super smooth, ended up swapping the metra wiring harness around as detailed in the thread referenced. Speakers are a massive difference. I have the RF upgrade, and these help to balance the bass-heaviness the RF upgrade adds imo.
