Default Subie 2.5i-S in Niddrie

Had Subaru's in the family for decades and finally bought my own.
It's a 2018 2.5i-S, and I'm looking forward to setting it up for better off road performance, with better tyres, lift kit etc.

Any ideas welcome.

Cheers.
Stew.

G'day & Welcome aboard Stew!


You'll find lots of ideas here and you're already on the right track - a sump guard would be a very worthwhile addition.

They’re really good out of the box. Before you do anything else, get a good sump guard. Then go and play and see if you need a lift kit.

I wouldn't be seen dead driving around with that bow on it..

Apart from that, sump guard to start, gives you some protection while you work out how far you want to push things.

That's not a bow, it's the new optional bug deflector
