Hey guys...

My name is Andrew and I recently bought a forester for my wife. We love it.
Sitting inside it, it feels brand new. I had some questions that I thought you all would probably be able to answer.

I am planning on following the steps described in the solved window noise for sure thread. hopefully this will help with the noise. However, I plan on patching the gusset because it has torn on the drivers side.

I am a little confused about these things: body style and air intake.

as far as the body style, my 04 seems to look an awful lot like an 03 and I thought they changed the body style in 04.

while i was waxing the car, i included the air intake on the hood. this thing kept the green color of the turtle wax and even after several bouts of buffing, it has a subtle greeness to it that is annoying the hell out of me. Do any of you know how to fix it?

thanks so much, I am very happy to join this forum.

The air intake is plastic and does not like to be waxed. Try Plexus which is a plastic polish . That seems to work on mine.

Welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:

Congratulations on the new Forester! Post up a picture so we can look it over. :wink:

As to waxing the scoop. No problems waxing the scoop on either of our Foresters. We wax it the same as the hood. Perhaps it has to do with the white paint? :confused:

ha, thanks everyone. its a really great car. its a one owner that had the seats upgraded to leather. im just worried because the more i read about the xt, the less i get the impression that it is capable of being a high mileage vehicle.

i bought it at 127k, and im worried that it wont make it to 200k. it runs like a charm and the previous owner babied it and took it to every possible service.

Im really praying we can get it to 250-300k.



you should take that one, and give your wife your car...
haha, i ride a bicycle. i baby her.
