    Hey all, had my 2009 X for a couple years and I'm looking to upgrade to an XT after a recent camping trip that involved towing a camper trailer. I've found 3 options in Perth so far and wanted some advice from more seasoned owners here. 2010 diesel with 121km for 21K, modded and tuned. 2012...

    Hey y’all I have a base 2015 forester and I’m currently upgrading my interior. I have the climate controls with less options and thus a mfd with only one screen like the first picture. I want to upgrade to the temp controls that have more buttons and more than 4 ac settings and it seems to...

    First post here. I've got a 2001 Forester I've had for a couple years now. Plenty of miles and love. I've finally decided to install an audio system. I'm currently planning to convert the rear cushion into a fiberglass enclosure that will still function as a seat. I want to put two JL W3 10"...

    I got my 2014 Forester a little over a year ago. A couple of months after I got it the driver's side dash speaker started fading in and out and now it does not work at all. I switched both of the dash speakers just to see if the speaker itself still worked or if it was an issue with the wiring...
