      Do it. Then throw on some 1" Subtle spacers.

      I went a size up on my Outback......only because they didn't come in the stock size.

      Double check, but does the 03 model year fall into the time the 2.5l were having all the HG problems?

      So I know nothing about Subaru's... just trying to help out a lady friend with her car. She doesn't have internet or know about car forums...

      So here's the deal. She bought a 2011 2.5i Impreza wagon and is looking for a roof rack that can carry two kayaks... maybe her bike.

      I didn't understand her text but maybe this will make sense to you guys... When I asked her about her roof and whether or not is was completely clean or had some factory trim/molding etc she said this...

      "There are built in spots to hook a certain kind of crossbar rack onto the car."

      AHAHHA whatever that means.

      Well thanks in advance

      Need some opinions on this. I'm looking to upgrade the wheels on my '08 Outback (like the one pictured below)



      I cant decide if I want to go with LL Bean wheels or 2009-2010 WRX wheels. Both are 17x7 and would be mounted with Yokohama Geolandars ATS



      or



      Thoughts?

      LL Bean wheels, no doubt. Especially make sure they're the actual Gunmetal color LL Bean ones and not just the regular silver painted versions.

      Yeah, I'm a sucker for dark-colored wheels. Which ever one I go with, they will be gunmetal.

      Depending on how you drive probably average around 25mpg or so, at least that is what my parents did with there 98 outback. I get around that with my 90 legacy. Change the fluids regularly and look for one that has had its head gaskets replaced, if not be prepared to have them replaced. My parents did very little to there car and it was traded in with 260k miles on it. It was suffering some transmission issues (it was an automatic, torque bind, and other shifting problems. ) solid cars with some well known engine troubles.

      25 mpg overall is optimistic.

      Here's my old Forester's fuelly stats (granted, it was for only six months - but my entire ownership retained similar numbers):


      As far as maintenance/reliability goes? It was excellent. The only thing outside of normal maintenance ours needed in 11 years was rear wheel bearings and a new cat.

    30. 12-15-2011 10:27 AM #345
      your talking about a boxier Forester. It was also owned for more than 5 years. I also said probably they never kept track but I know for a fact it was better than 22
