Hi guys, I'm normally on the Europe side of things, but I know a lot of parts can be shipped over from the US.

Just wondering if anyone can help me with any info to locate the appropriate "sports grill" for my 2006 Forester XT. At the moment I have the stock chrome horizontal slatted one, but I'm after the sort of honeycomb grill, but all I can find is people saying it's the "sports grill" but I'm struggling to find one, or find the model it's off, or the year etc etc...

Thanks in advance.

Haha thanks Kevin!

Definitely jelly of some of the terrain you Aussies and the 'Americas' lot have to play with!

I love some of the wild camping pictures I've seen.

I may have not found them yet, but it seems in the UK it's not as easy to just go off the beaten track and set up home from home.

I wonder if it is the same fitment, your limited grill looks quite similar to my stock grill. Funny how tastes differ! But you make a very good point regarding pollen.

There is a tree nearby that deposits sap/pollen idk *** it is, onto cars in very small sticky blobs... if I park near it the windscreen is a nightmare and the rest of the vehicle is covered too!

Jackie is awesome ! I've dealt with her a number of times and can recommend
She will ship to a villa/hotel etc If you are on vacation in the US for foreign buyers.
