This is my 2004 Forester STI imported from Japan in 2016. I've owned it since Nov of that year. It comes with the original auction sheet in Kanji but importantly showing the Grade 4 or higher along with other Certificates that proves the mileage.

Since I've had the car I've had the following maintenance work completed:

•Gearbox oil change
•Rear Diff Oil change
•New Mishimoto aluminium radiator
•New OEM top and bottom hoses
•Coolant flush-Done a couple of months ago when the hoses were changed
•OEM brake discs and Pagid pads
•Brake fluid flush and change
•Rear wheel bearings changed
•Seats and carpets wet shampooed
•Regular Oil and filter changes
•Fuel filter changed
•NGK Iridium sparkplugs
•Replacement front drive shaft seals
•Cleaned and flushed out the top mount intercooler
•New rear drop links

I've upgraded things as and when they needed doing. The upgrades include:

•K&N Drop in panel filter
•Prodrive adjustable RB320 rear Anti roll bar
•BC Sports Type RA Coil-overs
•Earthing Kit - Came originally with the car from Japan
•Cat back 2.5 inch Hayward and Scott exhaust with bullet resonator in mid pipe
•Pioneer SPH DA-120 Apple car play/android auto compatible touchscreen - just software updated to latest 1.19 version
•Pioneer Speakers in the doors
•Bose Spare wheel sub - gives a decent amount of low end without taking up space in the boot for a sub box
•Lamco white face OEM option boost gauge
•OEM Factory Forester five piece plush car matt set
•Whiteline rear subframe lock-out bolts
•Whiteline Heavy duty rear anti roll bar mounts

This FSTI has some factory added options along with the standard items. They include:

•Heated front screen and mirrors ( power fold ) - option
•Boot Cover - option
•Front and rear Aero wheel spats - option
•Integrated fog lamp - option
•Pink stitched leather wrapped steering wheel, handbrake lever and gear knob
•STI embossed seats
•Climate control
•Electric windows all around
•Power locks
•Cat 1 Alarm and immobilizer
•Reclining rear seats

The mileage currently sits at approx. 101,000 miles. Although the odo reads 152000 which is a mixture of kilometers and miles. But since the conversion it does accurately accumulates in miles. The engine is strong and does not burn any oil or make any odd noises. The gearbox is spot on. As is the clutch. I estimate with the mods the car is making approx. 300bhp according to my bum dyno. It was my intention to get it remapped and dyno'd but I tackled the brakes and suspension first instead of going after more power.

I've addressed most of the failure points of this vehicle such as the Rad, hoses, standard STI suspension and upgraded the stereo. OEM STI suspension in they way it's designed, after a certain mileage begins to knock and bind up. Google the phenomena 'sti strut knock'. With the addition of the BC racing coilovers this solves this and has also slightly lowered the car to a nice usable ride height. It can go much lower but I can not risk damage to the Aero wheel spats. They are rare to get hold of.

The bodywork is in decent condition, but does have the odd surface scratch/mark. But it's by no means average or tired. The paintwork is brilliant and polishes up nicely as seen in the photos. There a couple of small 5p sized dents in the roof, but they are hardly noticeable. There is absolutely no rust on the bodywork. It gets washed on average once every two weeks and cleaned on the inside.

This car is amazing to drive, sounds brilliant and is practical. It will on a steady run get up to 33 mpg. Road tax is £240 for the whole year. It's always been fueled with Super Unleaded and treated like my pride and joy. Because it is. I love this car and will be sad to see it go.

It’s got fresh oil and filter and comes with MOT until Nov 2020. Just changed the pollen filter and coated the door/window seals in GummiPfleger to keep in good health over winter
