Recently picked up a 2019 Jasper Green Limited Forester. I purchased it to my replace my totaled 2016 Forester 2.5i; which I loved dearly and made quite a few modifications to. I never got around to making a journal for it, but I promised myself I'd keep track of all the changes I made to this one.
This car is my daily driver and I plan to frequently go camping with it just like my '16. I sleep in my car when I camp, so I make subtle changes that make camping and dailying easier. I'm more of a car enthusiast than a mechanic, so I won't be doing anything crazy. Most of my changes will be aesthetic and QoL. Once my warranty expires, potentially a minor lift.
First up, I replaced the halogen fog lights to LED drop-in replacements from OLM. They're holdovers from my '16 Foz (H16 bulbs, still compatible with the 19+ models). They're super bright and have the same Kelvin temperature and give the front a more unified look.
- Rain guards
- Mud flaps
- Wire my dashcam and radar detector
- Mount my EZ-Pass transponder somewhere within the bumper
- Hatch top-light
- New horn (the MY19 horn is a god-awful tinny, embarrassing squeal)
Looking forward to all the time I spend in this vehicle. It's not the worlds fastest or best looking, but it's the experiences it gets me to that matters most 🤗
