ENJOY it.
Damn, why do people always think they have to mod perfectly decent cars?
It's different if you get a car with a rubbish interior and a weird drivetrain, but the Spec B is pretty damn good.

I'd just enjoy it, or if you want, go get a retune via EcuTek and enjoy a bit more torque and quicker spool.

congrats on new car now buy yourself a JDM Spec B Front Grille as that will make a big difference to the looks of her and get rid of some of that ghey chrome work. Then maybe wheels, lower springs or coilovers if you have some $$, then full turbo back zorst, bigger intercooler, tune / accessport and by then you will be out of mod money I reckon.

I like the factory wheels, but not the ride height. Thinking pinks? Then a grill. Is the above-mentioned grill the only option?

LegacyGT.com has tonnes of information on modifying and tuning legacies, and is a better source for information for our cars specifically. I'd suggest checking it out.

Don't do suspension upgrades! The Spec-B already has the much-coveted Bilstein struts!

I'd just put some nice tires on it and enjoy it as is.

All it has are struts. You can still do springs, sways, endlinks, bushings...

what i would do, if i were u.

drive the car for couple years to get to know the car really well.

after that buy all the footwork parts. suspensions (height adjustable suspensions/coilovers), strut bars, lower arm bars, stabilizers, etc.

if still have some money left then start adding some exhaust, exhaust manifold, intake, etc.

hows that? any modification is grounds for denial.


go with a downpipe for sure... throw in a k & N and get some sort of EM. Sway bars are good... i just threw in a set of cobb sway bars in mine. makes the car feel heavier but i love hitting corners in it now more then ever. for the most part i havent had any problems with my lgt. the only problems that i had are with interrior pieces.

An ECU reflash is harder to detect. An exhaust or suspension modification is far easier to see.
