Hey all greetings from Colorado!

So I'm currently in the process of buying an '02 Forester S off of my buddy who is leaving to join the Navy. This is my first Subaru but I've been wanting to get one for ages. I guess I'd just like to know what sort of quirks (if any) this model may have. Thanks in advance!

Welcome! We’re glad to have you here.

You've already done the first thing we ask of new members, and that's to provide an honest to goodness geographical location in your profile. The more fine-grained, the better! This is helpful to all of us in suggesting local sources of parts and service (and offering personal help). The next thing that would be useful is to put the vital info about your Forester into your signature. Year, model, and transmission type should do it. That lets us do a better job targeting our answers to any of your questions, and it makes it so that you don't have to remember to include this info in the text of your posts if you’re asking for assistance or advice.

In case you haven't already come across it, we've got a great FAQ sort of thread called Common problems, need your help! that everybody ought to become familiar with. It will point you to some of the best posts on how to deal with a lot of the more common situations you might encounter. And also look at the stickies up at the top of each forum's listings for answers to many of the most significant aspects of owning a Forester. Start with the stickies here at the New Member Introductions forum for info about Foresters in general and about how this place works.

Alright thanks I edited my sig (hopefully correctly). This car is basically a stepping stone towards getting a WRX or STi because I'm getting a very good deal on it so trading it in should actually give me some profit.

I was actually wondering how much you can do to these things. I'm pretty much completely new to any sort of car modding and was wondering what a ballpark price might be for getting a forester up to STi level?

Welcome to the forum from Niagara Falls!
If you had an XT, it'd be pretty cheap to get up to STi levels. With a model like yours however, it'd require a full swap which would cost you significantly more by comparison.
