Getting stuff for the Legacy is sorta hard. And let's face it, it's not the best car in the world to modify for performance or even looks.

But I don't care. I bought my car for personal reasons: I can remember the first GT I ever saw and I said "I'm going to own that car some day". And now I do.

I don't care if people don't understand my car, I don't care if women don't respect it because it's a wagon, I don't care if other WRX owners don't like it because it's not a WRX. I don't care, I don't care, I don't care.

My car is an expression of my personal style. Everyone these days is running around looking for something that makes them unique or special, but they all end up looking the same. I own a car that almost nobody else does. That is fun for me. I get a kick out of that.

Every little mod I do makes the car even more unique to me. And since mods are hard to come by, each mod is an even bigger accomplishment than the equivalent mod on any other car. I've been looking for some mods (like headlights) for over TWO years, and have only now just found them. It's so satisfying to find cool stuff for our cars. There is a really loosely knit network of people like us all over the world. We help each other out and think the same way. We share our accomplishments. I think it's cool that someone with a 1990 Legacy wagon can show up here, post some pics and get props from everybody. It's a 13 year old family car!... But we like it anyway!

You can't get that from a Honda, Audi, BMW, Mitsubishi, or whatever. Those cars are mainstream.

So yes, you've got a tough road ahead of you if you've got aspirations for your Legacy, but the rewards and satisfaction can be had if you've got the persistence (and a few $$ ). And all of us other Legacy guys will be down here at the bottom of the I-Club forums waiting to congratulate you if you do.
