Default 2006 Outback XT Limited!

Well, I have had my car for about nine months now and it just occurred to me that I never posted a thread about it on NASIOC.

I have ordered BC BR coilovers (Legacy Specific) as well as Whiteline LCA's, so I will be making the swap some time in the next week or so. I am also in the process of gathering parts to replace a few Outback suspension parts (trailing arm brackets, spacers, bolts) with Legacy GT ones in order to get rid of wonky geometry. So onto the mods and photos!

Engine:
- Cobb Accessport
- K&N Drop In Filter
- Nameless Performance AxleBack prototype


Suspension:
-Factory Legacy GT wagon suspension
-Legacy GT bumpstops
-Rotiform BLQ 18x8.5"
-Continental ExtremeContact DW 245/45-18


Interior:
-STRI SLM-II 30psi Boost Gauge
-JSC Cubby Pod

Exterior:
-5% tint
-6000k HID's
-Nokya Yellow Fog Bulbs
-Lamin-x yellow fog light film
-Red Tail Light film
-Factory grill painted black

Here is a photo of the car as of this past Saturday, right after a fresh detail.





A short video I made of the detailing process:


As well as a side by side comparison of the horribly rusted calipers vs fresh black calipers:



There are a few changes on the horizon other than the suspension work so I will update this thread as they happen! Thanks for looking, guys!

I definitely love those wheels. I think it's hard to find wheels that look that good on an Outback. I think they look super! It even looks great on coils...great job.

Liked the Roti's with the more reasonable height! The Tarmacs are cool but the Roti's I loved. The right height in the top pics was that with the BC coilovers at stock height?
