Heh, what exactly is a Forester STi? Bill Kolb, Jr Subaru used to advertise their own "Forester STi" but it was basically a WRB Forester XT with some of their own custom mods (ie: STi wheels, custom leather interior, STi shifter, lip kit, etc.), not a true STi from the factory.

right now my forester has jdm forestersti seats and wheels, usdm sti steering wheel, e-brake handle, '06 sti engine, vf-43 turbo from an '07 usdm sti, sti brembos, etc. the jdm fsti 6-speed is in the mail. along with some jdm fsti body parts. it's basically as close to a real fsti as there is in the us.

i'll help with a swap, just let me know when.

we are in the montgomery, ny area.

I don't like to think about what I've spent on the car, but it's far less than $40k. I'm actually contemplating a sale if I found a buyer willing to pay what I wanted for her ($19k-without trans, wheels, seats, but with everything else).

Here area couple of pics.

Magic, you'd be surprised at the number of people that live in the Poconos and drive all the way down Rt 80 to NYC everyday!:eek:

Housing in PA is so comparatively cheap it's almost worth it IMHO. We payed $300k for our townhouse in West Milford (2000 sq ft + 1 car attached garage), my wife's cousin lives in East Stroudsberg, PA (about 15 minutes into PA on Rt 80) and works in Parsippany. It's about 1 hr no traffic, but he bought a brand new 2400 sq ft house, 2 car garage, 1/2 acre in a new development for $289k! And he still has an unfinished basement to add even more space if needed. Of course right now everyone's getting killed on gas:( But I too drive 40 miles up to Westchester, NY.

Alright NJ/ NY members (and jamaitin from PA). The weather is starting to become consistently warm.

Please chime in if you would be interested in a B9 meet. I'm thinking somewhere in Central Jersey. It's sort of in the middle for Northerners and Southerners. Also, let me know where you think we could meet. It would obviously need to be on a Saturday.
