Hi everybody,
Member 0367 here, I joined last July but I never got a chance to put my emblem on my 2004 Toyota Tacoma and three months ago I did what you see in the picture below to it after sliding on black ice off Highway 32 pass Forest Ranch. Thankfully nobody was hurt just minor cuts and bruises. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago and now I have a 2015 Subaru Forester XT :) and I am liking it a lot!

I will update this thread as I modify it to fit my commuting and adventure needs!.......Stay tuned

Just today I put my emblem on and I think I might have to buy four more emblems for my wheels. The color of the emblem and wheels make it look awesome!

My wife has a 2016 Turbo White. It's a great car. I would seriously encourage folks looking for a good car for the family to check Subaru out. She had to get the Turbo of course. Hopefully when her first set of tires wears out I can convince her to get some meant a bit more for dirt.

Very likely the Cooper AT/3's. They have served me well on my FJ.

That's rough!

We just got rid of my wife's 2015 Forester XT. Unfortunately it was a lemon (we are still big Subaru supporters). But listen, we went through a terrible time with them so if your car is surging or bucking on acceleration, or engine cuts out during cruising, take it to your dealer and tell them. Ours started in late 2015 and we had 3 different computer patches (partially completed update to the main computer) while they tried to come out with an update. It's officially been completed since and has apparently handled the issue. So you may ask if there's an update for your car. I don't want to scare you, but I think you should know. I also don't think that you will have issues to the degree that we did, but if you do, contact me and I'll go over the whole story with you. We documented absolutely everything.

Yeah they are amazing cars! If you want a hatch-back I'd recommend the turbo Forester.

In all honesty if recommend the turbo model of any Subaru you get. Unless it's the Crosstrek, they don't come with a turbo :-(

Nice pics @psuarez. What's next for your Suby?

Sadly neither does the Outback :disrelieved: and I don't consider the circa 2006 3.6 to be a worthy option. Hell, I'd love the turbo diesel they get across the pond but in the meanwhile the NA 2.5 really isn't that bad.
