Ben,

How about giving your dealer this one:

BH5D5CD

That should get their attention , and you a full spec GTB e-tune 2 (well, without leather and side airbags anyway). McIntosh audio, indash DVD Nav, twin-sunroofs etc.

Cheers.

Ben:

I see that you're from Vancouver - the local dealership you're referring might not be the great Don Docksteader one would it? - on Cambie?

We should trade tips and mod advice man. Looks like we're from the same gene pool with respect to the wishes we want to pull from our Legacys. Give me a shout. legaliztik@hotmail.com

AnotherB4:

The thread says you're from Tokyo!! How convenient is that??!! You might be our answer to JDM OEM part numbers!! FHI stock parts should be the same throughout the globe... Willing to help dude?

Post soon guys!!

Bevan

i know big brother SOC is watching out there so i'm not going to say much... but it isn't docksteader.

all i can do is try... i've been trying for so long but overseas shipping from japan is such a hassle for the average civilian it's hard to find anyone who can help

i know subaru reads this board, so i have to be careful with some stuff that is said. as some of u know we also have an integra type-r in the family, and i had approached a local acura dealership about jdm parts and they said they could do it... i posted it on a honda message board and Big Bad Honda Co. found out and pulled the plug. turns out dealers can't do any "cross-border" shopping so to speak...

for example SOC cannot order parts from SOA even if SOA has it in stock and SOC does not. SOA would have to go thru standard procedure and order from japan. and neither SOA or SOC can order from FHI for jdm specific parts... until i came across this dealer who said yes.

let them guess... hm, i just noticed this legacy parked outside with blacked out windows and no plates... gotta go!

You're making us feel as if we are all playing out the character of Winston Smith in Orwell's modern classic, Ben!! Lighten up ... but I totally understand what you're saying ... it's called corporate protocol and protectionism ... just fancy way of covering corporate butt ...

Anyhow ... I'm just curious as to how this dealer would can order JDM parts without the help of a corporate centre. Unless it is through a third party system - than that's a whole other ball of wax to deal with. All I'd really like to do is get that tail light assembly, one way or another ... and hopefully that single headlamp system ... you mentioned you had a GTB frenzy, well sorry to say but so do I!! hehe ...

BTW, what kind of Legacy do you have? Any pictures ... what sort of modifications have you pulled off?

THANKS,,,, B

yes there is a 3rd party involved. i'm told it's someone from inside sti japan.

there isn't much to see of our legacy... it's about as stock as stock ls can be, aside from the 16" gt wheels and the outback dual-piston conversion...

i hear this "click" whenever i pick up the phone. i wonder why...

late-model outbacks and 2.5gt's had 2-piston front calipers with 11.X" rotors, as opposed to the lower models which had a smaller 10.x"rotors with a single-piston caliper. do a search on this board if intersted... that's how i found out about this.

Thumbs up

Can vouch for the 2 pots - when given good pads, braided hoses and decent dot 4 fluid they can really haul the car down from speed nicely (had them on my old BG - they are not as good at stopping the heavier B4 though).

As for the "dead pedal" - that's a foot rest in lay terms. What it really does is give you the ability to keep yourself in the seat when pushing it without using the steering wheel as a prop!

What you really need are 4 points!

Enjoy.

4 points aren't street legal here in north america. what we need are seats with better side bolstering.

Actually, it's all 2.5l Legacys (OB, GT, LSi) from 96+. They have dual-piston 10.7" front brakes instead of single-piston 10.1". Part of the reason is that the 10.7's don't clear the 14" rims that were standard for those years on Brightons and LS's. The new models have 11.4 vs the 10.7's; they have 16" wheels that clear the larger size.

Man.. I've given up on trying to get that front grille. That would be sweet. It's got that shield instead of the star cluster.

Can you get your hands on one of those babies? I'll ask my cousin in Jpn. to get me the # number.
