VEHICLE STORY

Bought this car on 2013 as my daily driver when I was a student. Originally, I wanted a Legacy GT because they look so mature and still has EJ25 Engine that is similar with WRXs. Keep browsing and found the only Legacy with six-speed manual in town so I took a test drive and it was very fun for an i. Has AWD which can do fun shit in snow. The red color also match perfectly for this car. Why no WRX? Reliability and insurance (you really have to have savings for those cars). I started them with lowering the car. The car has so much wheel gap that makes it look ugly. I paired them with Tein S-Tech springs. Car ride feels okay, more stable when riding at high speeds (80+). The car height dropped at F 2.0" and R 1.8". The goal of this car is to look as OEM as possible but still look dope. I decided to change the whole audio system (speakers, head units, amps), lights and whatnot. Have a AVH-x2800 as head unit because it looks better when the dashboard has double din on it, paired with 2 way Rockford Fosgate speakers on the front and Kenwoods for the rears. Subwoofer and Amp are Rockford Fosgate prime series. A huge step up from the base audio system without rattling the car violently. Recently just changed the tire to Firestone Firehawk AS. The ride feels day and night, because before this I have Turanzas and the ride is a joke. Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? Lowering springs and Sound dampener. How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share? I look some from the forum like Legacygt.com and Nasioc. They will help you to find where to start the modifications and parts. What are you planning next? Coilovers and subs upgrade.
