I just wanted to see who's from NJ/ NY here. Maybe once the weather warms up, we can set up a meet. I've done this in one of the Honda Civic forums I'm part of. We had a great turnout. I'll start and you guys/ gals can follow my format. This could be a great way to set up a group buy if we wanted to get parts/ accessories at a possible discount. The possiblities are endless (yes, I'm a very optomistic person). I'll edit this first post as people respond.

I'm a new resident to West Milford, NJ...been there 1 yr now so that would make me North Jersey as well:) My current location is the primary reason for buying the B9, I now live on a hill in the hills...where it snows, heheh.

Formerly Parsippany for 3 yrs and prior to that, CT. I also work in Westchester, NY. So I qualify for the whole tri-state area, lol.

I reside in Queens, NY. I have yet to see many Beca's around my area. Also, still have my Honda Civic that I'm trying to rid of and save some $$ from insurance premiums. :)

Heh...I find it interesting that the 3 of us have all had/have Civics. My second car was a 98 Civic coupe...loved that car. It was a DX that I inherited from my grandma, if it was an EX with power windows & locks I'd probably still have it, but I traded it in for my 03 Accord EX-L V6 coupe which is still my daily driver going on 155k miles now:tup:

Yeah, that is a weird coincidence. I had a 96 EX and now I have a 2004 EX coupe. The B9 is technically my girlfriend's, but I drive it 90% of the time. She thinks I'm a nut for being such a Subie B9 fan.

Our realtor was trying to get us to buy a single family house up there. There were good deals, but the commute to work would be too long. So we ended up buying a nice townhouse with a 15 min ride to work :)

Yeah, we were in an apartment in Parsippany. I work in Westchester, so obviously that was and still is a bit of a haul and my wife works in Fairfield. We were looking at townhouses as well and for our budget we got a way bigger place up here in WM than in Parsippany/Morris County. We were shopping some townhouses/condos in Lincoln Park actually but really liked the bigger offerings for the same price in WM...specifically an attached garage & 2000+ sq ft. My commute is about 43 mi, down from 55 in parsippany and my wife's commute is 25 miles up from 8 miles...but she may actually be transferring up to a school here in town in July so that would be good.

We also looked in the Butler/Wanaque area...but still smallish for the same price and no garage. My wife grew up in Parsippany, so she considers this the boonies and referred to WM as the "Mountain People" lol and we definitely do have a bit different climate up here....there was a brief span in the beginning of Dec that we had some flurries everyday for like 2 weeks:eek: I grew up in a suburban town in CT, so this isn't much culture shock to me.

Heh, what exactly is a Forester STi? Bill Kolb, Jr Subaru used to advertise their own "Forester STi" but it was basically a WRB Forester XT with some of their own custom mods (ie: STi wheels, custom leather interior, STi shifter, lip kit, etc.), not a true STi from the factory.

Ok,
So where are you located? I'd be more then happy to add you to the list.

A meet when the weather warms up could happen.

Welcome to the board celtic1mike. You've been added to the list! Looks like our NJ/ NY list is coming along. Maybe we can have a Central Jersey meet in the spring/ summer.
