2008 Forester XT Limited STI 6 Speed
I wish my FXT was in the WRB color, Your car is very clean dude.
The wiring diagram for my 2013 is a bit different (as you said the relay type has changed).+12V accessory outlet unswitched (always on) MOD.
While I have the inside of my Forester torn apart to do my audio upgrade, I decided this would be a good time to do the "+12V unswitched (always on) MOD". This will give me unswitched (constant) +12V power in the armrest console & rear cargo area
It's sure nice that Subaru left the wiring the same as it was in our '03 X ('03-'08). The relay type has been changed on the later models, but everything else is the same.
Here's an updated & neater wiring diagram.
It looks so handsome, I love it to muchThe Table of Contents for my Member Journal can be found on ► Post #124. This thread keeps growing, so to make it easier to navigate (skip over the chitchat), I added a Table of Contents with links to the main posts.

June 29, 2009 - The beginning!
First, thanks to Ian, @Arthrogrian19 for helping me find my next project Forester. I'd been looking for over a year for my next project Forester. It's way newer than I wanted, had my heart set on a low mile '04 XT. Of course I spent more than my budgeted amount, but who could pass on an low mileage '07 Forester Sports XT in WRB!
After contacting the seller for details, with check in hand, my son & I drove up to Shoreline, WA (North of Seattle, WA) to look over the Forester. The Forester was parked in my driveway before dark!
The '07 FSXT is not perfect, being preowned, but with just a bit over 21K miles, it still smells like new (detail spray?) & runs perfectly. It's 100% stock, with the exception of a set of Kumho tires the dealership just installed.
I wanted to get more pictures, but the camera batteries died & the the backup set let us down. :frown:
Okay, on to the pictures, with me thinking... what to do first! Perhaps that should be, what to do second, since I just ordered up a set of floor mats from Jackie, @SubaruPartsGirl a supporting vendor here on the forum.
Below are the first pictures of the Forester taken at the dealership.Here's how my retirement project looks now! You'll have to look over my Member Journal for all the details.
