Had to take off my borla header due to a crack that the exhaust shop couldn't completely weld when they put my resonator on. I think it's salvageable though, and I'm going to take it to a welding shop as a last ditch effort. However, now that I have a much quieter exhaust with no leaks, I'm happy for the moment. Picture time (if ya have any tips for me to make my pictures better, I'm open for suggestions).

Nice.

Why don't you repost this in the "Bling Bling Legacy" thread?

Looks really good. Especially like the dark wheels and the ride height.

Tints! And you should consider some sideskirts to match the front bumper...
How about shaving the antenna and installing a rear windscreen one, or using a "beesting" on the roof?

How do you find the suspension setup? I would like to get the same, but am unsure as to the ride comfort on Ohio's crappy potholed roads.

To everyone, thanks for the comments.

Huffer, the suspension gives a pretty rough ride, but doesn't give the "honda bounce" as some people call it. The car handles a lot better, but I can't wait to get a rear swaybar on it (looking at the cusco 18mm). Btw, the roads here in West Virginia probably aren't any better than those in Ohio

Hey, thanks for that. I'm considering the Impreza RS AGX struts and H&R spring combo, the damping adjustability should help.

If you're looking for an 18mm swaybar, just get one off a GT (find a wrecked one, the ones from the later (99+) Legacies will fit too. I have a Cusco 18-22mm adjustable from a 2000 Outback Legacy wagon (fits my 98 GT sedan just fine).

The dark wheels and the black bump strip along the side really looks tough, I like it. I also like the clean look of no side skirts and no rear bumper skirt. Mine are kinda beat up, maybe I should ditch them and go with the L look.

I'm still trying to decide if I wanna spray'em with a couple light coats of niteshades, or spring for the JDM tails. I'll figure it out after I get it repainted.

Why not try using some actual window tint as an overlay? You could use cloth as a template...

Just chucking some ideas around...

there is no grill...I'm going to mount some driving lights in there anyways, just trying to decide on what lights, then I'll make my own bracket.
