2008 Forester XT Sport 5MT $15K OBO

I'm sort of testing the waters here - I really love this car and I don't want to sell it but I've got to downsize. This post will be incomplete to start, I will fill in the blanks as people point them out.

For your consideration, a 2008 Subaru Forester XT Sport with the 5-speed manual transmission and 155k miles.
This Forester has a stock engine and based on Blackstone oil analyses and compression tests i've done in the past I believe the previous owner did regular maintenance (first 100k miles) just like I do.

It has just been registered through July 2020, and passed smog without issue.
I've spent more than I care to count maintaining this car over the last 5 years, because I never intended to sell it.

With the exception of one rattling heat shield and a power steering leak that developed this spring, everything has been repaired and set up to take this car to 200K and beyond as a badass commuter and occasional canyon car.
OEM turbo and whole exhaust replaced 2yrs ago due to leaky turbo seals.
I've got a ton of receipts and photos going back to the original purchase of the car by the previous owner.

STI Aero undertray side panels
Primitive Oil Pan/Engine skid plate with stinger tail
Primitive rear differential skid plate
50% tint on rear 5 windows (guessing, done by previous owner)

RoadHawkHD Dash cam
AppRadio 2 (SPH-DA100) with iPhone cable routed to the passenger footwell - can mirror Google Maps or Waze onto the screen
Some basic aftermarket speakers installed by previous owner, Under-seat amplifier and OEM trunk-mounted subwoofer

Trailer lights and brakes wiring
Trailer hitch

Centric rotors

Car Info: 04GGB again! and a blue car
Super clean. If I wasn't sinking money into my wagon, I'd probably be looking at this. I miss my Foz.
