Hi Everyone!

This is my first post.

I have a 2006 Forester which was purchased new. It has never stopped. The only problem experienced so far has been a dodgy coil pack. It went while driving up the beach on high tide at night during a storm, so I was up it! When it went, the ECU must have gone full rich and threw too much gas in which subsequently burnt out the catalytic converter. The Feral Forester didn’t stop though, just ran rough on reduced power and got the family safely home without waking the sleeping kids. All fixed under warranty which was good but I made sure every bit of sand was washed out before taking it in!

No cool scars, sorry!

Not sure why I use the pinon gear as an avatar. It's a non Subaru one but I like the look of it.

Looks like you don't mind getting your Suby dirty either?
