  1. Very common in this version, Mars performance in Australia sells some nice ones with DRL LED and are a direct refit
  2. Very possible if i need to free up more money to keep the family afloat with no job.......
  3. Yeah the shape is a bit more hard edged than normal legacy shapes have been. As for parts I have used and run on mine: BOV: Have had GFB respons on mine. Was nice to be able to make noise or none at all. I added it though to stop the factory uint from leaking they are know to be very bad a leaking especially it boost starts to go above 13/14 psi is leaks away and the turbo has to work its ass off to try and keep levels where they should be. (so can be a good mod if your one is leaking, However downside to this is.... If you have a exhaust that now flows better along with this and possibly an intake you will get boost spikes and boost cut without a tune.) Exhaust: I went for HKS Premium ES system after talking to @sobanoodle, He had tried others and found them to sound bad or drone like crazy. This one gives you a nice sound with out stupid drone inside. This is my BR9 with before and after of the exhaust Intake: Have used HKS intake system from turbo to intercooler and filter to turbo. If the car is NZ new the turbo to intercooler wont fit from what i understand. Brakes: @sobanoodle did alot of work on this suggest you have a look at his posts about these. Big changes in handling come from Bracing and sway bar upgrades in this chassis, I have cusco rear and front bracing as well as Whiteline sway bar that has really changed how this car handles around corners now. Its a heavy car but sits much flatter and has more control in the steering inputs. Mine came with STi lowering springs from factory, however there are lowering spring options you can get or of course go full coilover and be able to dial it to what ever you like. If you do the exhaust and even an intake take and get it tuned, I had planned on SAS doing mine here but work has got rid of me so need to hold that off. If you up north hit up Possum Borne Motorsport they can sort you out with all the tune and parts. Any more Q feel free to PM
  4. Hi, Sweet to see another person go for the last Legacy Wagon they ever made. Is it the 2.5Gt or the 2.0DIT version that you have ended up with? Depending on which one i can give you an idea on mods and may be able to supply some of the parts if it is the 2.5gt version.
  5. I have one delayed an extra week in Hong Kong from Partsouq, still worth the wait after the price i was given from Subaru NZ. seems to be world is still falling apart outside our borders
  6. https://www.subaruforester.org/threads/2010-lowering-sh-forester-options.307457/ This is detailed on what to expect from lots of different options
  7. We had a non turbo SH and i owned a turbo SF5 that i did alot of work on to use on the track. The SH5 is a boat, even more so at high speeds and old tired suspension. Get some decent tires lowering springs can help a bit but best would be coilicers or even is shocks tired and worn new shocks. Def do the rear sway bar. ITS SO TINY! front not too bad. The non turbo SH im not sure about the turbo ones have pretty weak rear difs too
  8. WOW did you trip off a second story building or something!
  9. tow on trailer? when you need to do it?>
  10. Saw this very tidy Subaru in Blenheim today!
  11. Mine still not working but have dropped it now and will just use the website instead. I did like it as was so easy to post photos with out having to upload elsewhere
  12. Tapatalk doesn't work for me anymore either, Well does kind off but comes up saying you are not logged in or you do not have permission to do this action???
  13. PBMS YouTube channel has just put up footage from the 2019 event https://youtu.be/UdNIolIjUa4
  14. Can get the genuine parts off website called partsouq excellent place for parts and they ship very quickly.
  15. Hi, sounds like the thump/bump will be the rear subframe bushes. well that's if they like the earlier version legacy.
