I'm collecting my FXT tomorrow, woohoo! I know there's a new car checklist in the forum somewhere. Any other tips the experienced bros have specific to Forester when taking over the car?

Welcome come to forester family... overall is a fun car to drive in weekend and daily. I thought now forester made is MY2016.. motorimage still have 2015 stock?

Yup, 2015 stock, MI clearing it at a discount, so I decided to get it instead of the facelift model. Saved me some $$$!

When I got it, SE told me there were only a few units left, in blue and red only.

There is a checklist somewhere...but personally I did not use one during collection.

 

It's always exciting on car collection day. If you have a good SE, he will make effort to go through the car with you in detail on their checklist. Anything not sure, just ask your SE on the spot during collection. Take your time and enjoy the moment. The car is under warranty, so no need to worry yourself unnecessarily. Just check the exterior, all the basic equipment and those items that was promised by the SE under the agreement.

 

Then just drive out of the showroom with a big smile on your face...it's a great car.

I have seen some really nice ones, in BMW and Merc, think those are built in sun shades.

The other day saw a Forester with those snap type sun shade... any idea where to get those?

I guess you are talking about either Laser Shades or Groovy Shades. Those are the ones customised to fit your windows exactly. Laser shades uses magnets to secure the shades to the top of your windows and Groovy Shades uses clips on the window frame.

 

Can look up Carousell for contacts. I think it's by asc customed shades or something like that.

 

Currently no Laser Shades for Forester, only Groovy Shades. Laser shades' shipment will be in May.

Hi folks,

 

Got the Forester XT recently, and looking through the MI website, and under drosucts, they have slotted disk brakes and Broquet products. Do you guys think its worth it to upgrade the breaks for the Forester and also anyone tried the Broquet on the Forester XT and actually got better mileage?

 

Thanks.

Personally, I will choose Laser Shades with the 2 magnets on top. It is more neat when you remove the shades, unlike the Groovy Shades with clips taped to the window frame. It's faster to put up when needed too, not to mention easier for my kids behind to do it themselves.
