Default The wife's new grocery getter.

Hey all,
Bought the wife and 09 I4 FWD. Got it for a steal but it could use my help for the lack of care from the previous owner. Nothing major just broken grill and fog light and dings and dents. But the interior is perfect. Had to have been someone old or single since the seats don't appear to have had anyone ever in them. lol Joined the forum to get ideas on how ppl are liking their Venza.

Plans with hers so far is maybe lower on spring and wheels.

Welcome to the forum, nice choice with the Blizzard Pearl, looks nice in the sun. For the grill, there are actually a few options. You can just replace it with stock part or there are a few aftermarket options. There are chrome overlays available that are plastic and snap onto the existing grille, covering entirely. I had a set for a while, but replaced them after about 2 years. Not because they weren't holding up, just because I found something I liked better. There are couple of variations on a mesh grille from EG Classics and I have replaced my grille with a billet grille from Grille Technologies.

I can't see what the damage is to the fog light, but a stock replacement fixture is about $90US. There are some cheaper aftermarket replacements and a couple of LED replacement units as well. There is a thread on another forum about the the LED's HERE. Also, if you haven't found that forum, it gets a lot more traffic than this one.

Good luck and enjoy!

BTW, nice Forrester. Lowered 2005?

Thanks. Yeah the color is real nice! She sent me some link to a chrome or billet grill she liked similar to yours but Im afraid it wouldn't look as good on white as it does on a darker color like yours. So maybe for now I will fix it with 9309 epoxy and paint it black to match the lower grille. As for the fog light it is actually the driverside lens that is broken. I think we are just getting oem replacements. Are yours aftermarket yellow lenses or is that the tint film on them? They look good.

The Forester is mine. Thanks I get a lot of looks because of the wheels. lol

Its an 04 XT lowered on WRX springs, BRZ wheels I painted teal. STi VF39 turbo and 06 STi exhaust, tuned with Cobb AP2.

The yellow is Lamin-X film that I put on, pretty simple mod that adds a lot to the look. I tried just yellow bulbs, but I like the look of the yellow lenses.
