    Hey yall,

    It's been a while.

    Looking to get a new daily driver and I am considering a JDM Forester XT. Just wondering if anyone here has imported one?

    I was under the impression that they were more or less the same as the Canadian spec XT's, but now I am seeing that the engines are actually different. Hmmmm....

    Is this going to be a parts nightmare? I was really hoping for basically just straight crossover for parts.

    The motor is basically the same, it just has the Electric throttle body which im not sure when that was sold locally.

    Aside from that its just a EJ205.

    Good value, and i would say 98% parts are the same.

    Sweet, thanks for the reply Hunter.

    I’m going to try and look at a few local ones this week.

    I’ll post back here if I end up getting one.
