We purchased a 2012 Outback today. I have owned a 2000 Impreza and a 2004 Forester XT. Although not as fast, it is a huge improvement to my foz in terms of the trim quality and space. This is our new family car and my foz is being retired to be a fun project car for myself. I hope to learn all about the Outback through the community and make some more subie friends.
Here is my foz. I will take some pictures of the Outback soon.
Those are from a 2010 WRX hatch. For $100, I am willing to give it a shot. The curb weight is only 50kg less than the Outback. So hopefully the drop won't be too aggressive and I don't need to source some saggy butt spacers. The two sets of sway bars are from STIs of different years. I am debating on which one to put on.
