Wow, Could you add a shot of the back seat? How are the door inserts attached?

I looked into it, but for the cost, might as well step up to a limited with everything it comes with.

Michael's Subaru is doing that? I've seen other local Subaru dealers (Carter) doing off roadish mods to some new Foresters.

Looks great. Do you know if the dealer used a local company or is it one of the national leather installers?

Leather is from Katzkin. It is installed by a local installer that is associated with the dealer. Everything is handled by the dealer. I don't know much about the detail. I got a lot of compliments regarding the color match.

I don't want to be contrary, but for a little bit more of than the 2 grand you spent on the seats you could have upgraded to a touring and gotten leather plus other upgrades

Just an FYI - Michaels and other local dealers are using a certified installer in Renton, who charges much less if you go through them directly.
