Thanks for the kind words guys.

Finally had some time today to do some "upholstery" to make the R rear seat fit. This involved making the jetta seat frames fit the R foam. One day this week I'll install the front seats and I'll have a full R interior.

Nice, thought about doing a tsi one but kept the small body instead. Huge fan you basically swapped the R into it.

Thanks, still have the 2.5, 65k, runs like a champ. Complete except for the ac compressor. Message me if you're interested.

the title of this thread already has me obligated to follow this build... Any chance you will be adding an R bumper?

maybe something like this in the rear, and those LED tails are awesome too

Fantastic, have had the thought that some others have done swapping an STI drive train into a forester, this makes me not want to do that.....
