I am still looking for the STi Forester body kit.

The STi hood as well with the hood scoop.

The F Grill.

Got the STi grille but I'm still looking for a good 2.25" catback exhaust with resonator - NOT a Stromung. I may have to buy a universal Borla, Brullen or Remus and find a good local fabricator (Philly metro area). I've also been thinking of adding a Cusco or STi front strut tower bar but not until after the tire and exhaust upgrade.

Right now I'm saving lunch money for tires (most likely RE730s) to put on the P7s I have boxed in the garage, and hoping I can get through one more winter on the poor Geolandars (which will be replaced with SP 5000s).

FYI Lark6, the front Strut bars are the same for the Forester and the Impreza. The rear strut bar, however is not. If I am not mistaken, the rear strut bar is the same as the Impreza wagon. Just a little info. I have the Cuscos front and rear and they are really nice. Just couldn't bring myself to spend twice the money for those three little letters. (4x the money for the Carbon Fiber one, eeeouch.)

Accurit: that's very thoughtful of you. Thanks, I'll be looking for the PM.

fp: To install the rear strut bar, do you have to permanently remove the caps over the towers, or do they snap on/off? Simple question but I've never done it before and it's too cold to run downstairs and do it - just being lazy and hoping you're online .

I'm not even sure that I want a rear tower bar - I haul too much stuff back there on a regular basis. How unbalanced is the handling with just the front bar? My gut feel is to beef up the endlinks on the bars I have.

Accurit, again: I think a lot of folks would like to see Forester-specific intakes and exhausts, as well as more info on which wheel/tire combos will fit. Sure there's much that can be adapted from last-gen Impreza stuff, but many folks would rather be able to do just a simple bolt-on than have to do any fabrication. I imagine also that there are folks who'd like the JDM-spec clear corners and taillight lenses as well as some of the trim pieces and accessories from other markets (like the stainless rear bumper step pad - betcha toerag's got one of those).

No, the caps just snap off and back on. You do, however, have to make two permenant "cuts" below the cap (in the felt-covered plastic) for the bar to go through. For a step-by-step guide to how-to, go to the tech section of my web page. That's what I made that page for, guys, so you can get the info I had o search the entire freakin' web for.

Also, the Forester had the same engine as the RS for each year, so yes, the '98 and '99 has the stupid MAF, while the '00 and above have the MAP. I believe the stock rear sway bar is 13mm, same as the RS. I changed to an 18mm and MAN did it improve turn-in. Now that I have gotten used to it, I may want a 21mm in the future... Either that or a set of the 5Zigen R-Rate springs for a stiffer ride...

LOL!
I had one on the old car, it came with it. I thought about getting one for the new one, but the price is pretty bloney steep for a bit of steel with plastic patches on it. It is useful if you change footwear and want to step on the bumper to tie your laces a lot, or get to the back of the roof. I couldn't justify the price.

toerag: I saw the stainless step pad on a UK-spec AWP Forester. I actually like the all-black rubbery plastic one better but there are always people who are attracted to bright shiny objects. The things I saw on UK-spec Foresters (besides the turbo, naturally ) that I'd like to have on mine are the "captain's chairs" front seats, self-leveling suspensions and headlamp washers.

I went 13mm -> 18mm with a bar from Mike Shields @ SPD. Much improved but I'm going to wait until I get new rubber before I do anything else with the suspension. Better endlinks are probably the smarter next step before a thicker bar, for me anyway. I am seriously considering auto-x next year and I think the first time out I should leave everything as is including the aging Geolandars. Only the most anal tech inspector is going to get beneath my car with a set of calipers and measure the rear bar which, except for thickness, looks exactly like the stock bar.

fp: Sorry that I didn't cruise your full website - I must admit that I haven't visited it since you were having probs awhile back.

The headlamp washiers are definately a cool option, Toerag. Always wished we could get those here. There is a step by step how to retrofit article on the Arizona Scoobie board (forget the name) that is pretty cool, but alot of work.

No prob Lark. Just wanted you (and everyone) to know that the info you seek might just be there. I spent alot of time searching Japanese web sites for info on the Forester, and pilfered and digitally translated as much as possible. Figured I ought'a put it all in one place so the rest of you wouldn't have to spend so much time. And BTW: I get nothing but satisfaction from the site. No kick backs, no advertiser royalties, nothing. Of course, I don't pay anything for the hosting either, so...

Hi, I am looking for the MY98-00 JDM front grill with the "Fr" logo.
Prefer not chromed, if it exists.
