I have a long history of Subaru ownership but I just purchased my first ever car which is not already >10 years old, a MY19 GT3 Premium CVT. It's EU-spec with FB16 (114 hp :rolleyes:) but it will be a great daily with good fuel economy.

I plan to do the following modifications:

  • rear sway bar swap to XV/Crosstrek (increase from 14 mm to 16 mm)
  • front brake upgrade (Legacy Spec B 316mm rotors and calipers)
  • increase stiffness of suspension to avoid bottoming out

So far the information on Impreza5.com has been very helpful.

With 225/50R17 winter tires on Forester wheels. It will be interesting to feel what the higher sidewall will do for the ride compared to the 225/40R18 summer tires.

Probably due to the electrically operated park brake we get in Europe vs the manual e-brake in US?
