Being featured is overrated, I wouldn't sweat it dude. Your FXT is way nicer IMHO!

its still annoying to be promised something and put out the time and effort to do a shoot and then not have it go through.

i like the bumper pole hahha, and for the staggered set of wheels, just wait and see if it messes with the center diff i guess.. and dont worry about my feature, i have one that should be out soon, and i just sent the pics for fatlace to another site to have one written up hahaaha

are you serious? I mean your car is pretty awesome but if it were up to me, I'd pick that car before yours. I mean how can you rock rotas and ***** about not getting featured on fatlace? they aren't just another wheel fitment site, they're fatlace. they have high standards.

well i guess that means you'll never be featured either, with your super elite rotiforms!

dude you only post on this site about wheels and fitment bs, critizing people for buying rotas and not real volks:

TEs in forester sizing aren't hard to get your hands on, and they're a thousand times better than grids. A THOUSAND. but they aren't cheap, which is something you should have stopped worrying about when you got into cars.
and you go out and buy some rotiforms that cost a whopping total ~$200 more than equivalent sized rotas! but somehow your own comments magically don't apply to you? LOL

I personally wouldn't stress about a feature, friend. I mean, you have the respect of the community, on top of that, your car is probably fairly renowned because of the fact its not often people go this route with a forester. the stance community, our foz community, and the subaru community appreciate your car. to me, thats nicer than a feature. For the most part, ask yourself why you did that to your car? you do it cus you love that community? for your car enthusiasm? or to be cool or some crap? I've had friends who have stanced their cars and all the sudden their ego jumped through the roof, and I lost their respect. I hope you don't become the typical elitist. don't have to cut someone else's hard work down just cus they were chosen over you...for now. Appreciate the community you already have, and appreciate your car which is most important. Hope you see what I'm saying, cus your foz is a perfect example of what good stance and fitment can look like on one, along with the one featured on fatlace. I'm more than sure yours is gonna be featured on a few other places soon. The owner of their prized ride, is just as important as the ride itself.

regardless what kind of wheels, it be rota girds, rotiforms, bbs, i forged, etc...some wheels look better on other cars regardless of the brand name, some fitments look better than others. But don't attack other people. Your just as bad if you trying to bring others down. we should be encouraging each other, not trying to tarnish each other's name. We are after all car enthusiasts right? especially a small community of foresters, should be more tight knit. Don't make this like the vortex forums lol.

i understand fully because im on ****ty rotas, which is why i was surprised when THEY hit me up and wanted to do a write up on it, but its the principle of the thing i dont like, having someone come to you promising to do something, then going through the whole effort to set up a shoot and detail the whole car, and then have it be for nothing. oh well the car got a lot of love at Import Alliance Baltimore yesterday, its still doing what i want it to do haha

I will not make opinionated comments regarding features, aside from the fact that it does suck to be strung along by those who make the decisions on what gets featured and when...
