I have to say I am really impressed with the performance of the Forester, we bought the car basically because it had lots of space to put the dog in the back. However I wanted something with a little extra performance.The car is fairly standard, with most mods having been done when the original parts needed replacing also as its an Auto there is a limit to what can be done as the ECU and Gearbox ECU cannot be replaced as they work as one unit. Since owning the car I have also had it resprayed so the lower panels are the same colour as the top half of the car as well as adding 18" Rota GRa wheels and lowering the car by 4 inches. Yes you read right, suspension has been replaced with Impreza WR1 struts and g-maxx springs.
