I originally was looking at WRX wagons. I had no idea there were turbo Foresters, but then I was very unfamiliar with them. I found one being sold across the bay (Fremont). It was a 2008 Forester XT Limited 5M in Aspen White with tan leather interior. I was happy with all of it. It had 23,000 on the clock and he wanted 22,000.00. A few phone calls and some signatures later and I was on my way to get my first Subaru.:woohoo.

I'll never forget how you brought Michelle to the north bay drive, expecting it to be a nice mellow cruise :icon_biggrin: The fun started when you and Roo outran that group of Ducati riders, and things only got faster and nuttier from that point. That was a fun freaking drive, and pretty hilarious, I hope she thought so too.

That day was hella fun. Talk about not knowing what to expect. Then Roo takes it upon himself to convince me to take a left after gas and all of a sudden I became the frontman.. :)
I encourage anyone who doesn't have confidence in their driving, go on a drive with them/us. Great drive, company and food.
Michelle was a trooper. In fact she said a few times she got nervous but for the majority she loved it. That's why I carry the DISCOVER card, it pays to discover. :woohoo:

Thank you!!!
I have always wanted to do this, but never got around to it. Hopefully there will be a lot of progress over the next year.
I have a lot to install but I am waiting on others to do a lot at once.

XT666, first off your FOZ RULES so much. and the 666 in your name is pretty ruling as well. As far as the Cusco bar, I am happy with it. It replaced my STi RSB, but i didn't notice any difference. I picked them up off some kid that had an 05 STi, and he also sold me the FSB as well which I found to be a 21mm. Not sure what the back was actually. It looks likle 22mm maybe. But not sure. I still want to install the FSB. I don't have part numbers dude, sorry. :(
Loving your Foz man.

Drew... For the second sway bar I used Gorilla Tape and a secret decoder ring that I welded to hold the 2nd RSB in place. Hell Yeah I got Amber Lamps on there.. I'm Bay all day.

Check out my Amber Lamps Dance:

Wondering if I should remove my tint?
I like it with my winter set up and dark charcoal painted rims, but not sure how I feel with the current Outback LLbean rims.
What do you all think? I look at my car without tint and really like it.. hmmmmm
