  1. ('06-'08) My fozzy 07 xt manual sport build

    Members' Journals
    It could be a low resistance issue. I had this problem when I had nearly all LEDs installed in my 2008 Forester XT (parking, side marker, turn, brakes, reverse). Because LEDs have a much lower resistance than standard halogen bulbs, any residual current in the lighting system would cause your...
  2. ('03-'05) Cosmetic protection - Tips?

    Utility and Protection
    That's awesome your '04 has its paint in good shape and hasn't been door dinged! Other drivers in my area don't care and I've been door dinged regularly wherever I go, even by my own wife in our garage. :frown2: Fortunately, our cars are made out of aluminum so it's very easy for a paintless...

  4. ('06-'08) '07 XT Sports- P0303, no resolution.

    EJ25 - 2.5L Turbocharged (2004-2013)
    Been in the same boat... It looks like you're on the right track in trying to resolve the P0303. I ran into the same situation as you when trying to chase down the cause of a P0304. I was at around 150,000 miles on the stock engine. I did the common fixes like swapping coilpacks, checking...
  5. ('06-'08) 07 Forester scraping sound from RF when moving

    What's the mileage? I just turned 216k miles on my 2008 Forester 2.5XT, and I'm slowly doing a complete overhaul of the suspension and drivetrain. I was also getting a scraping sound from the left front (LF) of my car and it turned out that my stock axle was dying. I replaced it with an...

    Thanks for the compliment! Andrewtech has been in the business for decades now and built Subaru transmissions are what got them on the tuner and enthusiast map, but they can do it all now for any AWD platform from engine builds, suspension and tire work, electronics, and even some exterior aero...
  7. Scandal Erupts Over Steel Company's Falsified Data-Subaru Affected

    News, Rumors and Media
    Grrreeeaatttttt....:| It took forever to get the Takata airbag replaced in our 2007 Honda CR-V under the recall (nearly a year). And now I'm reading reports where faulty OEM Takata airbag modules are being replaced faulty Takata airbag modules. :facepalm:

    Uh oh. I wonder if this scandal is going to mutate and expand in scope like the Takata air bag debacle.
