  1. If it helps even temporarily I have one from an 03 Forester which you can have for the price of postage which is £5 with Hermes. Standard boot size so doesn’t cover folded down seats obviously!
  2. SUBARU OUTBACK SE 2.5L AWD BLACK MANUAL £1950 ono Paperwork for Service history & work done from 2012 to date & MOT history from 2012 next MOT due 01/11/21 Mileage 107908 (will be using until sold so mileage will increase slightly) Lovely comfortable smooth car to drive, never had a problem since I bought it in 2016. Actually sad to see it go but I no longer need a big car so am downsizing - it has been a great workhorse for family. Body work: damage to boot (see photos) and it now doesn’t lock. Scrapes to bumpers (see photos), paintwork good for age (key scratch on bonnet) Interior is clean, seats in good order, no tears to leather. Engine is sound. No warning lights or issues. Occasional rattle when turning right due to loose heat shield. Have had it welded a few times but comes lose again. New clutch 2017
  3. I have bought an Outback so am selling my beloved Forester S-Turbo. It is showing its age but still a great car to drive and I'm sad to see it go. It needs some work however as it is showing its age, although the engine is still running brilliantly and it is the best and most fun car I've ever driven. It was classed as a Cat D write off 2 years ago as I had a slight argument with a bollard on the passenger side when parking which unfortunately meant that the electronic box was damaged and the insurance company valued the car £8 less than the repair costs so decided to write it off. My local garage mechanic is a Subaru expert and advised me to buy the car back and they would fix it for considerably less than the insurance quote which they did and it has served me well ever since. This was especially necessary as I had only just spent £2K having the clutch and Turbo up-pipe replaced. Mileage - 168202 The tires are fine. It has an MOT until 5th August 2017. The sun roof is cracked as my son and his friend climbed on the roof. It doesn't leak. It opens fine but has problems closing. There are several dents and scratches on the bumpers and body. Someone scraped it in a supermarket carpark recently, didn't own up and the driver side back wing and bumper are dented and scratched. One of the headlight washers has been knocked off. The a/c doesn't work The clock doesn't work (time not mileage) The alarm and immobiliser have been switched off. Any questions please ask
