I have a 2018 Forester XT, and I got GrimmSpeed's TMIC installed so therefore had the plastic engine cover removed. Without that plastic cover on, I wanted my engine bay to be a little more dressed up and decided to turn to any other GrimmSpeed products that might help because I love their quality. I looked into this and was hoping it would fit in my engine bay even with the subtle differences between the forester and WRX. Alas I was able to make it work, so if you have a forester XT and are curious if this will fit, it WILL, so long as you use the OEM screw INSTEAD of the short screw and black bushing. You will still need to use the LONG screw and LONG bushing in its respective place. Excellent product though and I'm very happy to have another GS product on my Foz.
