My new motor.. JDM at last, 21yrs after my first scoob

Recommended Posts

after 4 years of ownership the SF5 2002 Forester Sport went to is new home a week last Friday.. with 64550 miles on it. One happy new owner.

The replacement I got the week before.. a JDM, Forester CrossSport 2007 SG5 (fresh import last November) 55k miles
Doing a few bits to sort it out, nothing major.. sprayed the alloys, a few touch up on lower front bumper scratches, new H&S Zorst (centre & back box). Waxoyl and Pedders kit going on as I felt it went over bumps weird... a shock is on it's way out. Other than that it's all good after being checked over.

Out with the old...

In with the newer..

Working my way around it for detailing it, seats were bad so I aqua vac'd those.
engine bay coming on nice, body work needs a good clay bar and DA, which I'll do as and when.

Still waiting on DVLA for teh V%, so can't put my plate on.

note: if selling a car.. do it on line and don't send the paper work in... you get the V5 back in 4-5days. Same as Private Reg transfer/retention.. 4days got the V5 back with old reg on! 6days I got the V778 retention certificate! 
I've been waiting 4weeks now! (posted it off)

Thanks for looking

Pedders kit gone on yesterday and wheel alignment done today.


Car drivers like a new one now.


I'm really pleased, as wasn't sure how it would be.

But the difference is unbelievable over the rock and roll of the OE Cross Sports suspension that was obvious on its way out.

The SF5’s simply stunning! ?

That’s a very practical 2 car combo you’ve got there, nice. The anthracite alloys really compliment the white on both of them :cool:

What transmission did you go for in the SG5?

its auto with the speed shift buttons on the steering wheel. it does make easy driving being auto.. just a bit unsure when it's snow on the ground.

can't understand the ECO/AT/HOLD mode button though lol
