It's a big mistake to eliminate the popular Forester "XS version" and replace it with a single '06 Forester X version that now requires adding on "options packages" to come even close to the excellent standard features of the '05 Forester XS. And don't let anyone tell you the new LL version matches the old XS - it doesn't. Watch for a big wave of people hoarding '05 XS's, because it came with a great standard package that people love, and you can actually know what you're getting when an "XS" comes back around used.
