Default bodykits for BC/BF legacy?

I am trying to find out if there are any body kits available for BC/BF series legacys. I have found one NZ company that makes them, but they don't have pictures nor internet contact info. Its
http://www.aerotech.co.nz/Makes_Menu/Subaru/subaru.html
Does anyone have any info or picts on this or any other kits?
Thanks
Micum

That's probably the only place i've ever seen that even lists prices for the kit, much less makes them. Have you emailed them and requested pictures of installed kits?

If not, we should petition them for as much.

i've seen pics of other kits for the 1st generation legacy but don't know if they're still being manufactured or sold. i'll try to get my scanner working tonight (it only works when it wants to) and get some pics up..

Default warning, not small pics

i don't know if these are still made, or where to get them, but scanned the pics from older issues of hyper rev. 3rd one is my fav one (hippo sleek), so it gets shown by itself.

Hippo sleek still carries their line, so does Syms.

We need this stuff!!! Did anyone else notice the side skirts and i think maybe front and rear lips on those european BC/BFs? Am I right in thinking those weren't available in the states? They look like 97 GT ones to me...

Realistically, no one in the US was thinking much of the BC-BF Legacy as a performance car when it was still for sale. It's probably a contributing factor to why we don't have any turbo models available at the moment, and why we never got the WRX.

When i'm at least satisfied with my performance and handling, and actually consider doing anything involved with the outward appearance of my car, one of those kits would really be nice to add. Thankfully the Hippo ones are pretty tasteful and not even that obvious.

Here's a Japanese company I found on the Sube-directory page along time ago. Looks like they have expanded since I last looked at their webpage, but looks like they cover just about all Subaru's old and new with body kits. But, I have no idea how you would be able to order one or if they have a US distributor?

According to the current market, the Yen is at 120.2, so what ever the yen is, divide 120.2 to it

I looked up the currency exhcange for USD to NZD... The US dollar will get you 2.27 New Zealand currency. The parts are cheap....but the shipping....I dont even want to know.... Im just not digging the fact they have no email address and no pictures of there parts. If I knew what the Aerotech kit looked like...Id have bought it already.

I think Prova and UPRD are working to get some of their very cool parts available in the US.

At SEMA last year, UPRD had some Prova reps and parts with them. My friend was trying to buy their demo endlinks on the spot, but they wouldn't budge (i mean, sell them )

They are usually sold out of those particular parts in Japan, they are quite popular.

Nearly all the companies in Japan have stock still on those bodykits pictured (and more), but the problem is buying them from the states, having them shipped to the states, and any product problems/warranty problems. Prova has been working on an online, international ordering system, but I've never tried it (since I'm in japan) and I have no idea how well it works. And it is damned expensive to ship overseas, even by boat (up to 2 months delivery time).

Default BODY KITS FOR ANY LEGACY

THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF PLACES YOU CAN GET KITS FROM. I LIVE IN TORONTO AND THERE IS A PLACE DOWN HERE CALLED
http://www.bcautodesign.com ; WHICH IS WHERE I BOUGHT MY KIT FROM. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT IT WILL TAKE ABOUT 3 OR 4 MONTHS BECAUSE THEY SHIP VIA A BOAT.

IF YOU NEED THE KIT SOONER YOU CAN GO TO http://www.challengerdeep.com AND PHONE THEM. THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET YOU A KIT.

or

YOU CAN ORDER DIRECTLY FROM JAPAN VIA THIS SITE:
www.takakaira.com, email them with all your info and they should be able to help you.

regards
SWEETBOY
