Default 2006 Legacy 2.5i Se

Well it was time to trade in the MSP after 104k fun miles. I decided that I would rather have a new more comfy, reliable, nice, quiet, somewhat quick car. I love the MSP and it was hard to say goodbye, but after parting out as much as I could from it, it didnt feel like my own anymore anyways. I had a lot of good times in that car and will never forget it, I have so many pics that there is no way that would happen.

Ok so on to the new car, its an 06 Legacy 2.5i Special Edition. I didnt get a GT b.c I dont want a turbo car as a daily driver anymore, gas prices, and the cost of the initial payment. I got my Legacy for 10k less out the door then the sticker price on a GT. I think I did pretty well on the car price wise, although the MSP was worth more then they gave me, but what can you do.

The Legacy is Atlantic Blue, with Taupe interior. It is a 5spd with moonroof, power drivers seat, and a bunch of other crap that doesnt matter lol So far I have put in my own audio, Kartboy short shifter with Greddy Knob HID, and F/R strut bars . Anyways enjoy.

A visit to the dealership the night before I picked up the new car. We wanted a family pic of all 3 before I got rid of the MSP



The final drive and saying good bye. She looks kinda sad and very stock lol

I kept the Kenwood HU, amp and JL 10" from the MSP and they went in the Suby last night.



As well as my Kartboy short shifter, the stock shifter was like rowing a boat






more new pics... got the tint done, its 17%, put the HID in, the greddy knob, and the front strut bar

Great post and nice photos to boot! She's already looking very nice with the tint and HID's. Just make sure you put some holy water on this one so it stays out of the way of bad drivers!

Fall 04


July 06 just before it was parted out




I usually got around 27 average up to 32-35 on road trips

I didnt get a GT b.c I dont want a turbo car as a daily driver anymore, plus my fiance has a MSP that I can drive when I want a little more fun.

Yes the Mazdaspeed was made in a 2003 and 2003.5 model year and they were turbo. Only about 5000 total were made.

6000K Helios H7 bulbs... I had Helios 6000k H4 in the MSP the past year. The pic from Fall 04 is 8000k McCulloch bulbs , I prefer the 6000K for visability

yep I was, and still am, although not that much . The MSP was rear ended 3 times yes. I used to own a Se. i parted it and traded it in for the MSP in 03.

The worst of the MSP accidents and why I had a wingless MSP - the other 2 were just new bumper/paint
