Thank you sir. Yes this is all OG paint. Rest of the built motor/full swap has about 20k miles on it. Not many folks seem to like it.


Color Code 93H "Sierra Gold" I call it Granny Gold... Its actually a Nissan color like alot of the paint subaru uses.

Trim Code C20

Ian,

It's an Impreza on stilts.

As long as you can get Impreza parts (basic maintenance / repair parts) you can get Forester parts.

Body parts might be a bit trickier, but there is always the interwebs!

What material did you use for that front lip? Is it mounted directly to the bumper or did you attach a mounting strip to the bottom of the bumper skin?

Fiberglass garden edging, and I have L brackets mounted to the bottom of the bumper then the lip mounted to that.

So I can take it off and not have holes in the bumper.

Grill used is around $350.
Bumper used is around $600-800 (new was $1000 shipped + $50 for customs processing).
Headlight surrounds - $200-250 used.
Foglight covers were $175 shipped (new).

But then there's paint. Ugh. Paint was spendy.

I literally just did a quote yesterday with all the mentioned parts. The bumper is actually not that bad, I think around 350 or so, but used over here its marked up for sure. Its the shipping that is tremendously expensive. Guess mine wont be receiving that front end

Sadly, that's true.

My bumper from Japan Parts was like $350. Shipped was $600.

But totally worth it.

600 for just shipping or bumper and shipping together?

Bumper was about $380 I think.

SHIPPING ALONE was $600. But my bumper showed up in less than a week.

Freight shipping was only like $400-450, but would have taken a month.

I didn't change the ride height but the summer tire I have is 245/45/18 and winter tire is 235/45/17, which means my car is 1 inch lower in winter than in summer

Not as low as most of you guys but lowered on Swift Springs. About 3/4" - 1" lower than stock.

the difference is ~1.5", but the only difference in height you'll see if half that number.

2/3s of an inch drop. Half of the wheel difference and the aspect ratio change which is 4.5mm (45% of 10mm)

Regardless, looks hot!
