Hi guys, long term lurker.. decided to post my forester to show you all and to help keep track on it for hopefully many more years and mods to come! :drinks:

First Purchased: 253,000km's: (mid 2015)

Image

Current: 273,000km's:

(different wheels)
Image

Image

Image





Current Mod(/Rice) List:

- Nexus 7 Pod connected to OBDII (best mod ever)
- Leather Seats Front and Rear
- Head unit w/ Bluetooth
- Momo Steering Wheel

- Black A-Pillars
- Custom Grill
- Roof Racks
- Wheels are unkown (18x7.5)
- Tyres are all over the shop due to 2 punctures in the last month (18/225/40)

- UEL Borla Rep Headers
- MagnaFlow oval 2.25 Axle back
- Cold Air Intake W/KN Pod

- STI front struts / Eibach Springs
- Stock WRX rear suspension (in the photo above would of been rear sti, bit more level now)

- Short Shifter
- Front Shifter Bushings
- Bonnet Struts

To be Installed:

- STI Wing, color matched

Future plans:

- Window Tint
- Rear Sway Bars
- Front Strut Brace
- RE003's, unsure if i want to upgrade my rims first to something lighter or just keep these
- Steering Wheel (not sure if momo or STI yet)
- Would love to do a swap/forced induction once i'm more comfortable driving
- Lightened Flywheel
- Would love to find tuning options one day, although i hear its very difficult to do
- Red Lit Cluster :x (damn green tint)

Surprisingly enough this car is in great mechanical shape and has treated me so well, barely uses oil.. Only have had 1 issue while owning it when the fuel pump died on me and left me stranded, but an easy fix. Mileage is great i average about 9L/100k's with no freeway driving (can push high 500s with a full tank)

Will post some of the stuff I've recently installed/struggled like headers/nexus 7, if there's anything you'd like to see let me know. Maybe a before and after sound of the Headers, I plan to try keep this thread updated on the regular.

Thanks for taking a look. :waves:

Google Project Lambda Tuning, they should be able to help you out with some tuning software. Not very cheap but I've been playing around with it a bit and so far so good.

Might be hard to find someone or a shop who has any experience with it yet though

Few mods ive done in the past few weeks, also some arrivals that ill try do sometime soon
I'm off holidays now so sadly wont be spending as much time on the car. :?

Intake DIY:
Image

Planning to make an aluminium box around the filter, but not in a rush to do it for now.
sounds great, tablet shows a drop of about 1L/100km needs further testing.

Headers:
Image

had a load of fun dealing with this, but was worth it.. very happy with it
Image

Also installed a short shifter and front shifter bushings, huge improvement! very happy..
however, removing the circ clip under the car without the right tool may have been
one of the worst experiences of my life, got there in the end.. needed to buy the tool to get it back on.

Stuff to come: :thumbs:

Unfortuneately arrived a bit beat up with the paint, got my friend who is going to attempt to touch it up.
Very scared to install
Image

Such nice condition, so happy with it. Just need to pick up myself a torx driver to remove my current wheel..
broke an alan key and a flat head trying to work around it sadly. :(
Image

After this is installed ill upload some interior pics and explain what ive done with the nexus dash :)
