Guess it was time i started a build thread. Not that there is much going on with it lately.

MY 2008 Subaru Forester XT luxury.
Bought for my wife late 2014 completely stock, with 115k on the clock, timing belt and major service just completed.
Currently 175k........still another 200k+ in her.

Got a little excited and bought a ton of parts (brand new vf34, sti tmic, AVO dump ect) only to realise i will barely get to drive it since its my wifes car. In hindsight probably should have just done it anyway cause now that we have a baby, i cant be "wasting" $$, haha.

ENGINE
- Pretty stock actually.
- Reconditioned td04L
- Sharpie tune, surprisingly much better than factory.
- STi Diff back exhaust
- Secondary air valve delete
- NGK Laser Iridium spark plugs
- Gopher aluminium radiator

EXTERIOR
- STi Enkei Forester rims
- STi Front bumper
- STi 'look' Headlights
- STi bonnet scoop
- STi Grill
- STi Inner Guard liners
- Window tint
- Tuned by STi badge (+5 kw's) I know, it went on just before i decided not to bolt the go fast bits on.

BRAKES & SUSPENSION
- Pedders lowered suspension
- Whiteline 22mm adjustable rear sway bar
- Whiteline Heavy duty rear sway bar mounts
- STi Genome front strut brace. (actually does nothing but look nice)
- Brakes Front - GD WRX Callipers, Rear - Liberty GTB Brake callipers, ADB Slotted/Vented rotors and Pads
- Bridgestone Potenza R003

INTERIOR
- Pioneer double din head unit with reversing camera (not wired up yet)
- Rubber floor mats, haha, does that count?

TO DO LIST
- Fix clouded headlights.
Headlights were purchased from this site but are kind of average. lots of internal marks and clouding.
Kills me everytime i look at them, haha.
- Wire up stereo steering controls
- Few carpark dings that need paintless dent removal
- Maybe STi rear lights if i can afford it one day.

Nice! All the finer details in the interior lead me to believe this is actually an MY08 like mine. The loss of the centre pop out cup holder and the extra cup holders in the door trims (which have solid pockets instead of mesh).

Funny how the tuspeed 3 port comes in a burger takeaway box.

Looks sweet with the STi front end treatment. :thumbs:

As brennners said, it looks like a MY08 with the cup holders in the door pockets.
The MY07 & MY08 had the head unit DIN pocket centralized and didn't have the pop out cup holder next to it.

The 10th digit in the VIN will either be a 7 or an 8 for MY07 & MY08 respectively :thumbs:

Thanks for the info, Guess i'll have to check the VIN.
It's registered as a 2007 so i'm quite sure it is, but i'll double check in the morning as i'm now curious.

P.s - 99sti, i pretty much stole your build thread layout. sorry, haha.

All MY08 foresters will appear as a 2007 on rego papers because that's the build year. Subaru markets them as an MY08. My rego papers say 2007 but my insurance documents say 2007 MY08. The differences are quite minimal, pretty much limited to whats mentioned above.

Our cars are pretty much the same as well so I will let it slip. :drinks:

It's a MY08.

The MY07 would of finished around August/September 2007 if built after that they become MY08 until Aug/Sep the following year and so on.
