'09 forester on modified '09 STI coilovers. Currently the front bumper is just over 3" off the pavement. Tires are stock height at 26.8" tall. If I went to a low-pro it would be eating the ground:-)

Old height...

Did you remove the roof rack yourself, or was it bought that way?

Aussie Dave, can you take pics of the removal of the rails and installation of the delete trim replacements?

I was looking thru it a little today. Looks time consuming and tedious, but might attempt it over a long weekend.

Would like a good solid guidance, before I get knee deep in it.

Sure I plan to document this mod for certain.
Roof rack delete I sourced these from Subaru Parts - Subaru Parts Depot. These guys are the only ones who would agree to pack the roof rack deletes and airfreight them to me via USA Postal Service Priority Air. They packed them well and they arrived in perfect condition and only cost US$92 for the air freight.
If you want to know what part numbers and quantities to order of each part then go here http://opposedforces.com/parts/fores...llustration_1/

Default Winter setup

Couple weeks ago we replaced my girlfriend's 2006 2.5i hatch for this DGM 2012 forester, and I just installed the winter wheels and tires. 17x7.5 +48 wheels with Yokohama IG20 225-60-17. Here are some before and after pics.

I like the looks of the winter wheels from the side, but now with the wheels on, I see I kinda lost the concave look of the oem wheels, even if it's the same offset... but still looks way better than steelies hahaha

They are mate but at first i didnt find the set-up (F-8 & R-4) comfortable as usually brakes are set up with 2 pistons difference between front and rear and the bbk doesnt comes in F-8 & R-6 so have to do with F-8 & R-4 and now i gotten used to it.

But these will stopped you immed anytime.

Hey Notomag, not at all....its registered in 2008 (last batch before the SH models came into the pic) and color is C6Z or that wat it says on the body tag by the passenger door.

Honestly i prefer a darker silver or grey, this color is very dull indeed.....this will look better with matte or glossy black wheels which i am looking into, likely getting the Rota Grids or G-force with concave looks....

Thanks also for the compliments too!

Same here. Just that mine has little mods done to it, nothing too extreme or hardcore type....

Coilovers, brakes, wheels and exhaust done and a little vinyl carbon sticker on the scoop, fuel door and rear spoiler....that's all
