New Forester


Recommended Posts


Just bought a low mileage 04 plate Forester X, AWP. Its going to be an ideal wagon for my fishing trips, no more getting stuck etc.

I've had a few classic impreza turbos back in the day so not entirely new to subaru, buts it been a few years since the flat four burble!

As usual few quick questions...

1 - Put it into reverseve and makes a few beeping noises but then nothing, else, no sensors at the back evident? If its just a warning beep to tell me ive put it into reverse then can/how do I disable it?

2 - Can I fit impreza alloys - got some 16" Speedline chronos to go on -195/55/16 - currently got some 205/70/15 on the car - i know there is a small difference in offset (7mm) but will it be ok?

3 - Do i just need a std double din cage to fit a double din Stereo? or extra brackets or? currently has single din cd player and cubby hole.

Will get some pics up asap, loving the big sunroof as well!

Cheers Dave.

Hi mate, thanks for the welcome, pcd is the same its the offset thats slightly worrying me - Forester 48mm - impreza 55mm, I think it means the wheels will be nearer the strut and a slightly lower overall track but i could be wrong! im hoping 7mm makes bugger all difference:biggrin:

Hello& welcome, The 16" should fit and clear as the standard tyre is 205 or 215 so with the different offset I think you'll be OK.

No idea how to turn the beeping off is as I don't have that on mine

Again I presume the double din cage would work, you don't have anything like heater controls integrated into the bottom of the Stereo?

Thanks Stants. Good news on the wheels.

The beeping is weird I must admit, its almost like a warning beep like on lorries when reverse is engagaed - but it only lasts a few seconds, just a bit annoying.

Still looking for a Stereo so we shall see if end up with single/ double din.

Cheers Dave
