Took mine to work and back home... Then off on a trip down I-70 up to Pennsylvania (Planning to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water Tomorrow), aka the trip to Uniontown PA was nothing but amazing views from hill/mountain tops, forests, lakes, rivers, etc.... Definitely something I don't get to see from all the Commercial and business in MoCo Maryland...

Hit up Fitzgerald Subaru of Gaithersburg to get some maintenance work done. Pulled in, the greeter welcomed me, then a Subaru Mechanic and a Subaru Salesman walked up to me and said, "well this is a nice car... what is it?" When I responded that it was a Subaru Forester, they seem shocked and impressed at the same time. :chair:

Very knowledgable SUBARU Sales staff? You'd think they'd know what they have on their lots... especially the Forester being one of their biggest hits. And I BOUGHT this forester from THEM. :huh::confused:

That looks great! How does it sound?
Thanks! It's pretty good. Noticeable bit of rumble when the car starts up. It rumbles a little at low rpms, higher rpms not as noticeable. It does drone a little bit though, more so when driving in economy mode then with manu-matic and sport shift mode. Overall, for the price i paid, I love it. Just enough rumble without sounding too loud, obnoxious, ricey, etc. and I LOVE the look.

How much did that run you? Thats just what I've been looking for.
I paid $200 for the kit on ebay, and $700 for the install. I attempted on my own but failed miserably.

New Katzkin 09 13 Subaru Forester 2 5 x Leather Seat Cover Kit Set Black Ebony | eBay

That's the same listing i bought it from... looks like he's dropped the price, so I'd hurry and snatch'em up.

That looks like a fantastic install job; to the untrained eye, it'd never be obvious that the leather was added aftermarket.
Thanks! I had the professionals do it, I tried but after 3 hours on the driver seat, I couldn't take it anymore. Not enough time on my hands.
