NOM Posted November 4, 2014 Share Posted November 4, 2014 Hi All, I owned a 2005 Forester X in Sydney about 8 years ago. The car was great and never missed a beat in 18 months. To be fair I wish I never sold it. Anyway, we have moved back to the UK recently, and I am on the hunt for another Forester. I think this time I would like to go for an XT (even though it will be mainly used by the wife), and have started looking at a few. Ideally in 3-4k price range, as seems like you can get quite good cars for your money at this price point. One question I have upfront is about remapping. I have never owned a car that has had a re-map, and was wondering what the real world implications of such a thing are? Other than the obvious performance improvements do they need any additional or special care? Would it be considered a riskier proposition in terms of reliability? I am sure it depends a lot on who did it, and what they actually did, but any guidance or advice would be very welcome. Also any other XT specific things to look out for? I think at my price point I would be looking at the 2.0 XT? Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
