I need to get better pics of my xt's together. Cell phone pics didn't really come out good the first time.

And I'll update my profile tonight too.

Hahahaha....any qtns asked will be answered my friend.

Those are Advan RGII wheels & size is 18x8.5 ET48 with 3mm custom made aluminium spacers. Tyres using 245/40/18.

Am gonna downgrade to 235/40/18 cos tyres are a tad to heavy for my liking.....

Personally i feel that used Brembos (4P2P) off any sti will be good enuf on a forester.

Hope the info helps.

Nice! This is the first time I've seen cocobolo used for a shift knob. I'm more used to seeing the wood used as side and back material for high-end acoustic guitars!

I installed a Nameless Performance axleback on my 2010fxt. Today I plan to readjust the hangers, take it for a wash, then get some pics and video of it. Would never excpect the sound to be coming from " Sunday Shopper" kind of vehicle.

i need to post some photos one of these days. not too much done to my '11 5mt so far:
- STI steering wheel
- FXT wheels
- TiC "holy shift" kit
- snorkel delete
- DRL delete
- debadged
- hella supertones
- yellow lamin-x fogs
- "RA-R inspired" red stripe on sports grille

i have '11 WRX suspension that will hopefully be installed next spring.

my favorite mod so far is probably the STI steering wheel - the improvement over the stock wheel is like night and day, and the plug & play audio/cruise/bluetooth controls is a nice bonus.
here's a recent shot:
