Just joined this forum, currently driving an 05' LGT (see here: https://sl-i.net/FORUM/viewtopic.php?t=10606). I drove a 99' Forester L before that and a 95' Legacy L before the foz. The forester is actually FS still, PM me if interested. Many things have been de-modded to try and sell except the brake upgrade, suspension upgrades, and stereo upgrades are still on the car. Only 90,100 miles on her!

I do miss the space that car had with the seats folded down. Hell, used to sleep back there from time to time (even sleeps two comfortably :wink: ) Why the 05-06 legacy sedans don't have fold down rear seats is beyond me. My 95' Legacy L had fold down seats!

The foz also handles better than my 05 LGT with the tein springs and bigger rsb. I plan on changing that at some point. :grin:

Put up a FS thread... I might be interested depending on price. I've always been partial to a nice Fozzie!

This is a really nice ride, I've always enjoyed something about the older style of Foresters.

Thanks you all. I also really like the oldest body style of the SF. Those 08' Forester sports XT's look amazing from the factory though.

Huffer, I may put up a FS thread soon, but in the mean time, here is one I posted on SF.org: http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulletin ... r-l-32768/ (http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulletin/f93/va-1999-forester-l-32768/)

A number of mods were parted out to make the car more "sell-able"(exhaust parts/cai/jdm lights/grill). Let me know if you are interested.

I'm always a fan of Fozzies! I'm trying to convince my mom to put an Impreza WRX STi motor/trans in her '03.

NICE Fozzie. That body style is still one of the best ones ever made, period. (Do agree about how sweet the '08 Forester Sports body style is too.)
