I'm only looking at about $370 worth of accessories right now. The sport mesh grill and the splash guards are the only things worth mentioning, because the license plate bracket and center console tray are pretty much drop-in items. Later on, next Spring I'll be looking at roof and bike racks, and possibly the short-shifter kit and lightweight crank pulley.

How would I go about the HID retrofit? Is there a thread or a site you recommend? I believe I'll need new ballasts for the hid's as well, correct?

Nice! I didn't have a choice. The Forester is 1000X better than riding my Trek every day to work, especially since it's now in the low 20's at night when I come home around 11:30pm.

I didn't see a lightweight crank pulley from Kartboy. I saw that the Perrin lightweight crank pulley is only about $100 after the discount from Infamous Performance. I will definitely remember to contact you before I buy the Kartboy shifter kit (KB-002-LEG-WRX08). I found it online for about $160 shipped. I'm assuming you can do better than that.

Sidenote: I placed an order yesterday with Chris at LatheWerks for a custom hybrid shift knob. I'll post pics when it comes in. I wonder what will come first, the shift knob or my car? If I was a betting man, I'd put my money on the shift knob!
