So i am coming from a 2016 GTI, but when i am driving around 80 or so the Forester does not feel at tight at the GTI did. Its kinda loosey goosey it seems. Is there anything i can do to tighten up the driving when going straight at high mph?
Not a fair comparison, majority of vehicles will not behave at 80MPH the same way as GTI does. I was driving mostly BMW X1 (1st generation) and Audi A3 hatchback before XT, and I must admit that I was missing X1...So i am coming from a 2016 GTI
Hey also juat came from a 2016 GTI. I just grabbed new tires and hoping a 20mm sway bar will do the trick as mentioned above.So i am coming from a 2016 GTI, but when i am driving around 80 or so the Forester does not feel at tight at the GTI did.

L-o-LI'll tell you what my mechanic told me...you're not supposed to go 80 mph (I'm NJ, we can only go 65mph)

Like many have said, it's not a fair comparison. The being said, lowering the Forester and upgrading the suspension would help. Yet, is that why you bought/leased the Forester? To compete with a GTI? A WRX would have been a better and cheaper alternative.
You're not supposed to? When was the last time you or most other drivers did what they were supposed to. Where I'm at in CT, the speed limits vary from 45- 65 mph on the major roads/freeways. Do you think anyone sticks with those speeds? Only if you want to be run over by practically ever other vehicle on the road... Including the State Police. Now, if there is snow and/or ice? People slow down... A bit, but not by much. It's pretty crazy actually.
Yep, I'm not exactly off peak. Will admit though, it can be quite the fun Capital Rollercoaster on off peak.I'm on the Capital Beltway every day and if you're not doing 70 (off peak hours of course) you're going to get run over, especially on the MD side. If you are looking for an Autobahn experience I suggest trying Route 4 into Southern MD. LOL.
