    AFAIK it's a simple affair and places like ECS have been doing it for a while now. Just to clarify things, I haven't swapped anything yet. I've been planning on it but things keep popping up (like my knife collection and Pontiac G8GT ) that detract from my swap fund.

    You're considered a dinosaur compared to the other 200k+ other members. I joined in '05 and got in before the 100k member mark and people consider me "OG". lol
    I went nuts with my Subie when I got it in 99. I slowed down a bit after getting married and haven't done much with it for 2 years. It's a great car and I plan on getting an Aerosim wide-body kit and V7 swap when funds become available. I've actually started selling my knives but those funds are going into the G8

    My '01 Legacy Wagon might not be sexy, but it gets me to sexy places.

    Welcome to Blade Forums! I don't own a Subaru myself but almost bought an Impreza Outback years ago. I agree that it's hard to go back to non AWD after owning an AWD ride. We have an Audi A4 Quattro that my wife's pretty much taken over so I had to buy another car to get around and got a Mazda3 Sport hatchback.
    I'm thinking again of getting a Subaru though. I shoot a lot of them at racing and carshow events I cover. My buddies who run a local import drag racing series also own a shop that used to build the STis for the Canadian Rally Team and now build them for another team.
    Here are a couple shots of the STi:



    Here's my A4 on summer rims:


    I have to look for the most recent pics I took of the Mazda3 after I lowered and tinted it. I can't remember which camera it's on or if I even downloaded the pics to my PC yet!

    BTW, I just read Consumer Report's auto issue for 2011. It ranks Subaru #2 (just behind Honda) in workmanship/dependibility over all manufacturers.

    Which one, the one I posted? Those pics were from last summer. Here are some from 2009. I believe this is the same car that they rebuilt for 2010.

  9. Sweet ride. Fun cars for sure.

    When I was much younger, I always wanted one of these:


    Then I decided I wanted one of these:


    I ended up with something similar to this instead:


    Except mine was much more beat up, rusty, dented, and a horrible teal color.


    I miss that car.

    I wanted to bump this thread with an update... I sold the WRX and picked up a 2008 Legacy GT Spec.B! I drove 10 hours to VA to pick it up and it only had 7,600 original miles! Has a few aftermarket goodies on it as well. Most of them were still brand new in the boxes, not installed. The owner bought the car new at the end of '09, drove it for a little while, ordered a bunch of parts for it... then got shipped out to Iraq. He didn't want a car payment anymore so he gave his wife power of attorney and had her sell it for him. I feel kinda bad buying the car without ever meeting the guy because we spoke on the phone and emailed each other back and forth for a couple of months to work out all the details.

    Anyway, these are the pics of it the day I picked it up...





    -Magnaflow catback exhaust
    -CNT catted downpipe
    -RalliTek front and rear sway bars
    -RalliTek end links
    -COBB AccessPort
    -Kartboy short shifter
    -AVO panel filter
    -STi pitch mount
    -Perrin afta-MAF tube
    -IPR top mount intercooler

    For those of you that don't know, the Spec.B comes with Bilstein suspension, a luxurious leather and Alcantara interior and best of all... STi 6 speed transmission. The 6th gear is a bit taller than the STi models which allows me to average 28-32 mpg. Not a bad "grown up" car, huh? lol

    Nice. I wish they would never have switched off of that grill, the new style makes it look like another random econo-car.

    Edit:
    How unfortunate that I did not read to the end of the thread before posting...

    Nice ride! A change is as good as a holiday!
    Is this a 2.0ltr or 2.5 Legacy GT?

    Thats a nice car. My Son has a 1998 Legacy Outback wagon. My Wife has a 2012 Forester and my Mom has a 1995 Legacy Sedan. They are all nice, although I don't really like the Forester for some reason. It doesn't seem to handle as crisply as the "car" Subbies.
