Your best bet is a Powerflow Back Box from Powerflow. Sounds nice without being too loud.
Want louder then get a Jap Box.
Hit me with a pm and I will see what we can do for you?

If you have not been tuned then a decat and tune will help plenty
We can help there too.
R2k for box. R3500 for tune Decat is R1600

Hey Harvs
I have a bellmouth TNT stainless steel DP and a VF Turbo for sale.
Also we can then do the tune for you.
Hit me up with a pm on 0827859277

Hey Gareth
Are you planning to have it tuned after you have fitted it?
If you in Johannesburg then swing past once it is done and we can do a check for you to see if there are any issues.

None of these things come close to an open source tune for reliability and being able to adapt to our fuel and climate/altitude

For R55k I would not buy a broken SG pre-facelift. For a touch more you can get a working one.

If WBC offers me R55k for that car with leaking HG's I would sign rapidly.

My thoughts exactly. R55k is a very good offer, especially from WeBuyCars. I'd let them take it, they'll likely just sell it straight on and have to deal with the CPA stuff.

Think of it this way, you're paying R75k for a pre-facelift Foz and you can get an xt for around that price pretty easily. If you do an engine swap, you're looking at R95-100k and you'll get a really nice xt for that.
What he said. Sell it. But an XT. Job done

Good day all,

I'm looking for good set of replacement tires for my 2010 Forester 2.5XS. Bought the car with 225 55 R17 Geolander G95's but had quite a few sidewall issues. I drive 95% tar roads but when I do go off road it is usually remote e.g. Lesotho, Wild Coast. I did some research on AT tires but find very contradictory advise from the dealers. Can anybody give me their advise and experiences. I know I can't be too fussy but it would be great to get an AT tyre that will not make a significant difference in terms of noise, consumption and handling on tar.

Will appreciate.

Thanks.
G015 Geolander.
I am loving mine.

Introduction / Re: New Owner - 2005 XT Premium (SG5 model)

Hi guys,

I am proud to say that I am the owner of an immaculate 2005 Forester XT with 210K on clock with FSH (but previous owner dodged a bullet on the 200K service but still hat down for overall up keeping of the vehicle - so busy with my 1st Major service)

I have the car for 2 weeks now and the heart is beating very, very healthy (still 100% OEM with only a few bush scratches and the normal wind noise to quarrel about).

I have realised that I have some work to do as the car is at the age where she needs slight attention in areas but on the overall, I am super excited about the driving experience of this car (coming from a Toyota only experience in my 17 years of driving).

Trust I rely on this community to gain knowledge in making my experience a great 1.

FYI - planning on making this my own "STI" Fozzy

Thanks
Gareth

Oops... sorry about that, I do not know what went wrong. I live in Centurion on the outskirts of Pretoria and work in Boksburg. There is a PM inbound to you with my contact details...
No problem. You can also let me know on WhatsCrap then.
