P.I.A 09 Forester STI

I know some of you may have seen this as you are also members of NASIOC, but others arent. I was just trying to find one of the guys on there when I saw this on the front page of NASIOC this morning. I have seen both this Forester and the red 04 in person. They are beautiful cars. Pretty much like they were right from the factory that way. Anyways heres the link, Im sure some of you will enjoy it:2009 Forester Fantasy: Full STI Swap (video) - NASIOC

If Subaru made those for us, I would have bought one of those instead of my STi. There a local one I run with in auto-x. I love the way it looks, and we are usually very close on the results sheet.

^ what would it take for you to trade in your 07?

I think there's definitely a pretty good market out there for a hopped up STi version of the Forester. Subaru should make 500-1000 or so next year and see what kind of feedback they get.

Haha, good question John. Honestly dont think I can get rid of it, for several reasons that I wont really get into as to not drag this off topic too much.

But after seeing P.I.A's first Forester swap (an 04/05) I fell in love with the Forester even though it wasnt a stock one. Now they go and do it again, just proving that Subaru really should step outside that safe zone an create something new, like you mentioned in "limited production". See where it takes them, see what they get. Im sure that the first few hundred would probably sell quickly.

That's awesome. I think a STI Forester should be a limited model.

I know this is sort of an old thread, but it's worth a look for those who haven't seen it: http://www.wrxtuners.com/forums/f110...orester-27075/

I remember that thread, and that MEAN A$$ look that Forester had to it. Its nice to see some go and modify another subie other than just the WRX/STI. I know the Legacy has a following also, I guess I just wish I would really see more of them on the road.

That XTI is just wicked mean. Ha. It makes me proud to see other people mod other subie models too. Imprezas shouldn't get all the love. I'd definatly put a forester in my fake garage next to my STI if I could have it look like any of these beautiful rides.
