Custom Wagon: 2007 Subaru Forester 2.5 XT

This next car comes as a tip from Jeff who writes: Never really been into the who Subaru thing, but this is super cool.  I have been was into the Subie thing...and it was something special -- all-wheel-drive grip mixed with a torquey turbo engine that farts out a raucous exhaust note as the tires scramble for grip.  This next car is offered for a price where you could get into a older Subaru STI...but if you are willing to live with the day-to-day realities of a custom/modified car...this could be your jam.

  1. I love these, but $12k? Crack pipe.

  2. Yeah.

    Fire-breathing longroofs are so my huckleberry but... the sellers of these modded modern squarebacks really seem to love in their own world, price-wise.
