- HEIGO roll cage
- SPARCO Corsa seats (in black)
- STI Gr.N bushings (suspension, engine, diff and transmission) --> did not take the STi-parts. Changed every bush to Powerflex
- flocked dash-board

N°2 is a FORESTER MY 2005/2006 2.5X auto in white/silver.
Bought the car here in Europe although it comes from Oman in the near-east.
It's in fact a US-model which was sold there to a guy who brought it with him, when he came to Luxembourg.

It's an interesting model for me, because in Europe, the 2.5 n/a engine was never sold in the Forester. Only 2.0 n/a or 2.5 turbo over here.

Sadly I haven't posted enough yet, so I can't post any pics or links.

Thx for the nice welcome :icon_biggrin:

It looks like you're into MODding. --> After looking in your Modding journal, it seems to me, that I'm not the only one:biggrin:

But I think the forester will stay fairly standard, one modded car is bad enough for my wallet :huh:

I will change the wheels to the original STI's from my Impreza. They are powdercoated in anthrazite and will match the car perfect. Perhaps with Hankook tyres.

Tinted rear windows are planned to.

What needs to be changed now are the front brakes. But there lies the problem because I don't know what spec they are. Mesured them and they seem to be 294mm. Are they the same as for the WRX?
Also not sure about the pads.

Wanted to use upgraded pads and rotors.

Rear drums seem to be ok, have to check them.
