Default Hello from Auburn, Alabama, USA.

I recently purchased a '18 Forester Touring na. I love it! All that I've done so far is plasti-dip the rims black, added a rack, and some stickers - so at least I know its mine compared to the many others that I see in this university town








My plan is to get a 1 or 2 inch lift, 30 in. AT tires on 17s, and then I'll go from there. I can already sense that I will be spending many hours of research on this site!

War Eagle, Philip! Far out, a good season this year from fairly meager beginnings.

I'm at the other end of the forester timeline having recently picked up a 1999 bog standard NA 5sp manual. My in-laws are in Auburn and I'm there fairly regularly... I'll be keen to see pics of the area.

So far it's holding up well but I've heard the same. They are just to hold me over till I get some smaller wheels and bigger tires.
