    Hey there. Title kind of ugly but I want people to find this resource easily with search engines. It's 12:52am and I work tomorrow so I'm not going to finish my complete write up right now, but I can't wait any longer. I just installed a VIOFO A129 Pro Duo dashcam in my car. I have had the A129...

  3. Modz Pics
    I got bored and decided to do the Rolls Royce starlight headliner the other day. Was super easy and took maybe 5 hours total that i spanned after work in 2 days. Easy & cheap just time consuming.. here are pics! I also dyed the headliner black so it fits better!
  4. FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Recently picked up a NA 2012 Forester (4EAT, 2.5X, PZEV) with 58K miles and leaky valve cover gaskets. Since the factory plugs are due at 60K, I figured I'd get those replaced at the same time as I get the gaskets fixed. The shop that diagnosed the leak quoted me $490 for the labor and, no...
  5. Utility and Protection
    Hey y'all, I'm new, so if I'm going about this incorrectly, I apologize. I recently purchased a 2015 Forester 2.5i limited. It's my first major purchase, and I'm quite satisfied and excited with the performance thus far and the opportunities that await. I went ahead and got some OEM cross bars...

    [was not sure which forum to post this in exactly] We love our forester but grew tired of the rather loud engine. We decided to make a rather small investment of about $115 (USD) to attempt to reduce engine noise passing through the hood/bonnet and into the cabin. Short story short? It worked...

    Let me know if you'd like me to create a thread with my installation and how the process goes Just picked up an '09 Forester Premium at 50k miles with MT! Didn't know the premium didn't have heated seats. I'm looking to install some myself. Does anybody know if the premium model comes with...
  8. Sourcing Parts & Accessories
    So my Forester got hit in the front. As I'm working to get it fixed and driving again, I noticed that replacement grilles are shockingly expensive. I intend to keep a lookout in local junkyards but in the meantime does anyone have a good suggestion for a DIY solution that doesn't look bad?
  9. Brakes
    I bought an 98 forester so I was disappointed to find out that it does not have a LSD especially since I do some overlanding/offroading with it. I was debating getting a lsd but I also have read they are not the most effective. And a LSD would only help split torque in the rear. If only I could...
  10. Suspension and Handling
    I want to make my own HDPE lift as it would be considerably cheaper than purchasing a pre built one, and I am curious if anyone has attempted this/already has a diagram or dimensions drawn up of the struts. Any suggestions for DIY HDPE lifts would be appreciated as well! 2016 FXT Premium
  11. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Hey everyone. So I have a 2001 N/A Forester S, and I've been researching for air intake options that wouldn't break the bank. Eventually I came to the conclusion of just doing some custom work because as it stands, anything is better than the way my car is currently getting air (it is drawing...
