    Wheels and Tires
    Hi all, I have 2 set subaru 16" & 17" wheel set from the 07 forester, and thinking to get the new 18/19 forester. I can only keep one set, the 17" will fit 18/19 forester, but I prefer the 16" for more off road option (but I could be wrong). So will the 16" wheel fit in the 18/19 forester...

  7. Terrible fuel economy

    Fuel Economy and Alternative Fuels
    No premium, as it has been said. How is your driving style? When you drive, try not to rev to more that 3K rpm and keep driving at the speed limit, and not being a jack rabbit to see if that help. AWD surly eat lots of gas. BTW how many miles is the Car? How many gallon did you fill up each...

    Exterior and Body

  13. Camo Wrap

    Exterior and Body
    I agree with others that camo wrap has to be the whole car to look good, and larger patterns looks better...but if you do just some parts of the car then solid color will be better, make it like two-tone (Matte vs paint), IMO any matte color looks good, and I like matte black. Just me...
