Hey guys! First post ever, this is my 2009 2.5i that I have high hopes for. Picked this up after having a '98 outback for 7 years that served me well, i've fallen in love with my 2.5i more and more every day. Nothing really done yet, just a Borla catback (not in these pics), dipped the premium wheels in a metallic gunmetal and a cold air intake that I have yet to install from Cosmo racing (dealing with them was probably the worst experience of my life). Planning on adding a light bar on the front, two wheel/tire combos (one for summer, one for winter), sway bar/suspension, plus this thread is ridiculously inspiring.

Kinda reminds me of when I bought my car new back in '09.. (first ever brand new car purchase)

I loved my car but I did not like the chrome all over it or the PT-Cruiser grill or the front bumper w/o a lip or the 16x6 wheels, or the horrible stereo, or the horrible speakers, or the body roll, .. etc..



I need some new updated pics.. but I'm getting there with the car..
*
-Pioneer AVH-P3300BT DVD Receiver /XM/ etc.. head unit-


-COBB Delrin Knob- -Bell Vector 995, hardwired-


10" 4 ohm x2 voice coil Kicker Solo Classic, MTX JackHammer JH805 120w rms x2 bridged (front doors) + 500w rms x1 @ 2ohm
New Alpines in doors- car stereo is sounding sick..

-cont....

... some more...
-Suabru color matched lip/ sports grill/ 17"x8" wheels/ 225-45-17 tires
-Rally Armor UR flaps- -DE-badged- -DE-chromed-



end product (so far).. Maybe a slight tint soon.. suspension? Nope, never.


I'm a lot happier with the car after all the work on it. I drove it from Upstate NY to Atlanta GA last month and it was a great car for the trip.. Xm radio was great. High speed handling was great. Point being it is worth the effort to make the car how you want it, especially if you plan on keeping it for any length of time like I am going to.. Good luck on your NPB 2.5i.

You're going to be VERY happy with the Rallitek F+R Sways.

I installed the rear anti-rollbar last summer, and I'm already really happy with how much more flat the car handles.. It's a very large difference. I'm going to do the front this summer. Yup it is amazing how much wheels/ tires/ anti rollbars can do, without suspension work otherwise.

Throws her cars color scheme off? What exactly do you think her color scheme is? Besides RBP and pink.

What would you suggest for a tune/how might I go about that? I'm rather new to tuning aspects.
