Default Introducing myself and the forester

Hi all,

I'm Ray, 36 years old and I live in The Netherlands.
I, or we, wife and 2 kids, have a 98 Forester, 115 thousand Km on it, and we love it!
Here in Holland there are not a whole lot of Foresters, and off road parts are hard to find, or at least I cant find 'm

Love this site, so much info and greats pics!

Welcome to ORS. I was in The Netherlands last year- and like the rest of Europe outside of Switzerland I saw very few Subarus of any type. Maybe the Swiss can tell you where they go?

Thanks Rally! Well, in my family we ride Subaru, my uncle has an Outback, my 2 cousins drive Legacy's and Impreza's, and my father in law also had a Legacy.
Last year in France I had no trouble crossing riverbeds or driving up the mountains with my tenttrailer.

Thanks Kevin, just sent out a mail to an australian company for a lift kit, wonder if they ship to Holland, not much here for Subaru off road parts, and the parts in Australia are really good priced too

Ray,
Welcome to ORS!
Would love to see pics of your Subi and tent trailer. I tow a tent trailer with my Outback.
Here is a link to an Australian camper trailer site that you might also find interesting.

Nice and friendly just like ORS, so why not come over and say 'Hi' there as well! You would be one of our few European members.

And congratulations on being Member #1450!

G'day rayroovers & to ORS.
Sounds like the Subi's really run in your family
You may also want to try Subtle Solutions (also a site vendor) for a lift (1" strut tops) aswell.

Also g'day to kevinlvy & to ORS.
Great that you guys found us

Regards
Mr Turbo
