Bobby,

I dont recall seeing photos of the pile of new parts installed. Did I miss them?

I believe you saw them. It was the '08 Sports headlights, standard/Limited grille & AT shift gate trim. I'll probably do the fog light installation at the same time, since the front trim will be off when the headlights are installed.

The reinstallation of the AVO Turbo Kit in the '03 X is almost complete, so I'll have time to work on MODding the '07.

I found my Member Journal on 70,000 Views this morning, so I saved a screen snapshot!

Thanks!

As I always say, half the fun in MODding is to share the experience.

I ordered a new one, but who knows when I'll get it. I don't notice it being tilted as much now, so it must be growing on me...

It's not tilted, it just has a gangster lean. Gangster leans are +15hp!

Hmmm... perhaps if it leaned forward, but doesn't leaning backwards subtract hp?

I have no idea. I'm sure there's some sort of math equation for this kind of stuff.

Sports grille to Limited grille swap!

This may seem odd to you, but I've never liked the Sports grille from the first day I saw it. I disliked it even more when the pollen started to fall & it settled into all those crevices!

I purchased the Limited grille from Jackie, SubaruPartsGirl, a supporting vendor here on the forum. Her direct number at Annapolis Subaru is (866) 509-3019. I live on the West coast & I buy my Subaru parts from her!

Subaru calls it a GRILLE ASSY
  • Forester Sports - GRILLE ASSY FSG - 91121SA140 ($225)
  • Forester Limited - GRILLE ASSY A - 91121SA082 ($225)
I'm not going to do a step-by-step write up on the removal & installation. It's very easy & requires no special tool. Having a set of plastic trim removal tool makes the job easier, but it's not required.

► Update! ◄

After nearly a year, I decided to reinstall the Sports grille. First I decided to give it a through cleaning. The Sports grille is a PITA to clean, compared to the Limited (standard) grille! It took me, what seemed like forever, to clean the crap out of all the nooks & crannies. I used an old tooth brush & Q-Tips... way too much trouble!
Bobby...
Here's a comparison of the Sports & the Limited grille.


The upper picture shows the Sports grille on the Forester & the lower picture shows the Limited grille installed.

Here's a last picture for an overall view. IMO the Limited grille brightens up the front of the Forester & the cleaning the grille is so much easier!

Question though... What are you doing with that Sports grille?
