Installed new Baja Designs Fog lights
Next to my daily (audi b8 chassis S4) with a bang and Olufsen stereo in it, the Forester audio will always be crap, and there will always be a lot of wind and road noise. Sound deadening helps though, there's a reason the audi is nearly 500 kg heavier than the foz 🤣🤣Im gonna do this relatively soon. Its sad when the wife who never listens to the radio above volume 10 and she will CRANK it to 11 sometimes for her favorite songs..as we were driving one day in the Forester turned to me and said..wow your stereo system SUCKS....I need to have it on 12-14 just to hear it... cant even understand it (highway noise going 65) at highway noise levels... So sometime here will be upgrading all speakers and probably adding in a small power amp for the stock head unit.
lol Oof that sucks. yeah i had to double check the first time I did an oil change on it to be sure I didnt drain the wrong one. Gonna be super easy now with the Fumoto.
Keep us updated..it may be a couple years still BUT I plan to replace the "stock" tires once they wear out with A/T's.Took a drive on the Gold Fever Trail off of Holcomb Valley Rd near Big Bear lake, first time we've had our Forester off the highway. It handled flawlessly going up the twisty mountain roads, we're glad we swapped out the factor tires for the Falcon Wildpeak A/T Trails. View attachment 553708
We've had them on the car for about a year and a half, they've been very good around town, I think we dropped about 1 MPG, but that's to be expected with a slightly larger, more aggressive tire.Keep us updated..it may be a couple years still BUT I plan to replace the "stock" tires once they wear out with A/T's.
