Forester Technical Discussion?
« on: May 09, 2014, 12:01:28 am »
We have Legacy and Impreza Technical discussion subforums - how about a Forester subforum to go with it?

Agreed!

There wasn't one before because the forester was just a lifted impreza.
Is that not still the case?
It's more accurately a lifted legacy, I think.

So your vote is for segregating the blacks?

To preserve our unique black culture & heritage, also, we require more Lebensraum.

To go along with this I think we should also create a BRZ sub forum... That way all the basis are covered.

That would be cool.. and what about the rare Tribeca?  :P  I know a family that has one but they aren't forumers or enthusiasts.

Can we also make one for the 360? And the SVX? Oh oh, and the Justy!

So give me the vodka, and stfu.

The Baja is probably close enough to the WRX that they can use the impreza section I suppose.

Legacy, but points for trying.

Maybe if there continue more build/tech threads about it, maybe.

The Forester section wasn't made out of whole cloth... it was made because there were enough threads to categorize that way.
