With great sadness my pride and joy is now for sale,I have owned the car for three years and four months and enjoyed every minute of owning this vehicle. I am the first owner in the UK and it has only been in the UK for the amount of time I owned the car making it a fresh import, It was classed as a grade 4 from japan which is very clean and rust free. I bought many OEM parts and aftermarket quality parts. The car is running in KM still and has the 112mph speed restriction on (so yes it’s not the typical Subaru that has been ragged around everywhere ) ,I actually have a speedo converter to MPH but have not fitted it yet but will go with the sale, It only has 88,000 miles on the clock which is still low miles for the age of the car. MOT till 10/07/2020 it passed no problem same as the year before. Smoke free cabin and is very clean interior and exterior. Undersealed all arches to keep it fresh, Viewing is welcome at any time but no test pilots or time wasters please.

So I have replaced things on the car been exact OEM replacements and modifications here is the spec list so far.



I am a car enthusiast and can not say again on how clean the car is I am very fussy when it comes to cars as some people may kno, people are always commenting on how clean it is even when going to the shops etc which is always a positive note, I am confident first to see will buy specially if you are on the market for a clean forester. The body and paint work is in very clean condition you actually wouldn’t think it’s a 2001 vehicle, it had a full 3 day wash, clay bar, polish and wax to seal it only using the best products like autoglym and meguirs.

Thank you mate :)

That is a fender mirror it’s an extremely rare item to, it actually had a purpose as well as looking great, it stops you curbing your wheels :)
