  1. Forester Shopping
    Hello all. I came to check out a 2008 subaru forester out in LA. The car is from Michigan so I noticed some run underneath the car. Everything checks out fine aside from that. Asking price is $4500 and I'd like to know if it's worth the cost/risk. I attached some photos of the undercarriage.

    Ok I am nearly at my wits end with my Auto 08 forester. Spent over 7000 dollars on it now and it still won't work.

    Hey all, I'm Gilbert. My friends call me Gibs. I have a 2018 FXT (StormXT) and my fiancee and I own a (beat up) WRB 2008 FSXT. I'll be getting custom plates to that effect, too (Quebec) so STORMXT for the 18 and WRBFSXT for the 08. I have a lot of things planned for both including (but in no...

    Just picked up my first Forester (And non-BMW) from Denver and brought her home to San Diego. Can't wait to get started fixing the small issues that it has and equipping it for some light off-roading. I'm an Engineer at a company that manufactures off road wheels so I have some idea of the...

    Hey guys, hope you’re all having a great day wherever you are! I was wondering if anybody knew anything about whether or not you were able to put an STi steering wheel on an 08 forester and if so, what year STi would be compatible. Quick release wheels are illegal where I live but I still want...

    My Subaru Forrester started to apply the brakes usually at a slower speed and when cornering mostly, I took it to my mechanic thinking it was brakes or acceleration problems. He drove it and said transmission so I took it to a transmission mechanic. He plugged his computer in and then drove it...
  7. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    First post, stoked to be using this forum more often. Does anyone have any good suggestions for aftermarket exhaust systems for an 08 naturally aspirated forester? Looking for an axil back, maybe even a cat back due to budget restrictions.
  8. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    After months of looking and hoping to find "performance" parts I found a CAI. It's from a company from somewhere in Eurasia called COSMORACING. It's 148.50 plus shipping which doesn't sound like a bad deal to me...

    Hey, I've been putting too many miles on my Jeep runnin back and fourth from SF to the Sierras. I decided that I need a little mountain runner beater.

    Hey everyone, I was looking for bull bars at an affordable price, I looked on eBay and saw there are few options. I wouldn’t mind getting a used bull bar so..
