Stage 1 of my build is completed with the installation of a new exhaust system. After some research decided to go for a full 3" Milltek system. Its brilliant, not so loud which I was looking for but you definitely feel the difference.

Work begins



:D :D :D

I wanted My forester to be different from all the XT's and Forester STI's here in Kenya so decided to to go for the Liberal Albero Front bumper. It wasn't cheap but its was well worth it.

Just Arrived



Test Fitting it..Actually thought of leaving it black but later on went with the WRB



Bumper Freshly Painted



Painted Bumper with the Lightwerkz Headlight kit installed

New forester specific Coilovers - Bc racing coilovers with swift springs
I had other Bc coil overs before but the spring rate s were way too hard to got rid of them.
These are much better, handling has really improved as expected but also they are not soo uncomfortable...







Ride Height was way too high so decided to drop it by one inch
