I might take some interior shots tomorrow and put those up.

Shot from this spring/summer, can't remember when I took it:

A couple pictures I found on my computer from the summer showing what's wrong with my car:

One of my front tow hooks after my car got pulled out of a snow bank that was down a bit of a hill.

The new door after my fun in the snow. I want to get it repainted to match exactly, but my dad won't pay for it to be done professionally since it's not too obvious and the car works.

A couple of the pictures I took this afternoon after I finished my run. The sticker to the left of the plate is a Scottish flag with Ecosse in the middle from out trip there a few years back. Also got the ski racks on waiting for some nice powder.

My nice engine bay, courtesy of the dealership. We had a bunch of engine work done a couple weeks back and when I got it back it was all nice and clean. Probably the cleanest part right now sadly.

My current background now. I took it a few minutes after the few previous as I was driving down the road and the sun was just perfect. I'm a bit obsessive with pictures at times.

Actually taken shortly after the one above at the same spot. I have a thing for the front of BD/BG/BKs. Plus there'll be a trend of only showing the front, rear, and right side of my car. The left almost never shows up in any of my shots.

Shot I took driving down US 50 west of Placerville. Yes I was driving, don't bitch at me about safety. The sky was too impressive to pass up.

They're on their way as fast as I'm forcing myself to take and upload them.

Yea, it's one of those colors you don't see on 2nd gen. Legacys a lot. It's a bit awkward to match anything like rims to though.

Gunmetal or black rims will look perfect on that color. Welcome to the family ;)

If you really want that door to match, paintscratch.com sells exact match paints. That is, if you are a do-it-yourselfer. :smile:

If I do any rims that are a different color it'd probably be black, but I'd probably stay with silver. And thanks.

I was looking at that, but I don't really have any knowledge or means to paint a door. I was thinking about trying to teach myself, but it'll be a while. If I could convince my dad to get the whole car detailed and the door painted that would be best since it has a lot of small scratches on it.

Is that the SOHC or DOHC engine?

I knew the 2nd gens came with the later style engines...

yes the 30th ann. came with the phase 2 2.2 motor, not the 2.5

'99 L 30th Anniversery Edition would have the Phase 2 Ej22 SOHC if i recall correctly.

It's the newer map based engine though (not maf)... which surprises me... perhaps it's a late '99 or maybe the Legacy got the MAP based EJ's SOHC a year before the Imprezas.

Cheers... for some reason I thought it was a GT, now I reread that it is a 30th ann L model.

I would assume it's a late model too for having that set up.

That's the same engine that Crappacio(Spelling? New member.) is looking to replace from his GF's dead legacy.

Where are you? And by Natomas do you mean Folsom Natomas or Arco Arena Natomas?

i live in downtown sac myself. the natomas meets are off of del paso road, kinda near Arco. i know it's a bit of a drive for you, but we always meet up by the Borders on truxel and del paso, starting around 8-ish or so, sometimes later.

have you ever hit the rallyX events on Prairie City Road? last time i was there (about 6 months ago or so), there were quite a few BG/BK legs, and all kinds of imprezas. really cool stuff!

If I get a free Saturday evening I may think about checking those out. I could use more exposure as I'm still learning a lot, plus I don't mind the drive at all.

I may have heard about the RallyX, but I've never been. The car's technically my parent's still so I can't do too much to it or with it.
