    Hey, I just got my 2005 Forester 2.0 XT automatic. (i wanted the manual but not that many in Norway) I wanna make some mods/upgrade on it, and want to know what you guys recommend and if there are any must upgrades? I was planning to get some coilovers, but not to lower it. Any tips? -OllizzHD
  2. Transmission and Driveline

    I've been thinking of ways to install a car head unit into where the dash storage cubby is, or even place a separate display up there with my head unit where the radio normally is. Does anyone know if there is a mod available to accept these sort of things, or any knowledge of how the dash...

    I’m looking at the (painfully limited) selection of “standy” (you can stand up in them) camper trailers that the forester can tow. There’s a lot to like about some A liner models, I’d like a larger option but they are roughly 1600- 1700 lbs dry. So... has anyone modified or considered trying...

    Hey all! I was wondering if anyone has done fender flares on a SH forester? There’s a few SJ foresters rocking this set up and it looks super sick. This guy lives locally to me and he said he just bought generic Jdm flares off eBay for $150 and had the car wrapped. Any photos of other SH...

    A few months ago I picked up a 2019 Forester. Big shock for me as I had never been drawn to anything suby past the WRX, but I have fallen hard for this thing. The more I get into the community and drive the car itself I wonder why I avoided it so hard for so long (especially being in Seattle...
