B4 = Boxer-4 (cyl), if I'm not mistaken, and RSK (another model designator) = Rally Sport Kompressor (Kompressor being German for turbo/supercharger, and Porsche helped out with the suspension tuning).

nice.. needs a bigger hood scoop and deeper air dam, though.

jeff, do you know if the styling is just for the b4, or if it's going to be used for the rest of the legacy line? not like we're going to get it in the states, but i'm just curious.

Good question...

My mechanic said that the introduction was for the 'new B4' but the Subaru Japan website indicates all three models (B4, Wagon, and Lancaster).

Subaru Japan - Legacy

Cheers.

I'd like to mention that I hate *everyone* that keeps bringing this thread to the top.

I *was* in love with the GT-B Gold, but now that I see that Kappa Oarnge Mica, I have a new love...

legacyb4 (sorry, I cant find a "real" name), can you get FHI/Subaru part numbers for any of those JDM market cars? Specifically I would kill for a set of those flush roof rails an maybe aluminum hood (with scoop)...
