Default 05 Forester

Picked it up today after trading my E34 for it.

Not much is going to happen with it since it is almost perfect. I am going to put wheels and tint on it though.

Ever watch Mighty Car Mods on YouTube? They tricked out a Forester pretty nice. It's a fun show and I bet you'd like what they do to their car.

Oh I watched every single episode already. The most I am going to do this car is tint the windows and put wheels on it. I might one day lower it because I think it would look good but this is my DD. MINI takes the precedence.

I did but, I bought this as a DD and the price was right. I mean this thing is super clean. 65K miles on an 05 and it looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor. Oh and it is Champagne Gold Opal. So maybe a little green in it.

Just bought 4 of these bad boys to replace the crappy steelies that are on it. I will post some better photos this weekend.
