I think so too...........but I am not a fan of the all Black thing, so that's me. I still think its killer! I'd love to see a rear low shot to get a look at the tire width and stance!

Wow that side by side profile really shows how much the 09's kinda look like the older foresters. I really like it, some different rims and it would be amazing, but the stance and everything is perfect!

Thanks guys. The wheels aren't my first choise but they've been laying in the basement for the past 10 years, so I painted em black and threw em on. It was those or the stockers... Someday she'll see some Volk CE28N's, most likely black again...or bronze? Current tires are 245/45/18's. When I put the 18's on with the 35 sidewalls they looked akwardly small, so I went with the slightly larger sidewall..

New exhaust is in the works to replace the stock rust tubes, and a few other things... I'll get some rear shor when the new exhaust is on.
Pics turned out nice, thanks Ken. How the others look??

Casey......Just as a thought I would look into possibly having your door handles electroplated black, if they can do it, kinda like what they do to car emblems. I don't know how it will hold up but I think it would look good on the black FOZ. Since mine is the satin white the chrome looks good to me on that color. I am also glad to see that you are changing some opinions on the SH! :biggrin:

I thought about switching out the handles to black, and believe me you're not the first person to say something... along with the black sports grill. For some reason the chrome doesn't bother me though. That may change over time like most everything else..
And again, thanks for all the compliments guys. I'd have to say it looks even better in person..
