    Petro's '06 2.5i Wagon

    Bought my first car in 2005, Bone stock 1997 2.5GT 5spd with 160,000km. clean and awesome





    Totalled it less than 5 months later after someone put there left turn signal on and turned right Damage was worse all the way down the side. and to top it off I had it back for less than a week after getting the DEALER to install new headgaskets

    Got an insurance payout and 8 months later of looking online for one everyday I Bought this even cleaner
    Bone stock 1999 2.5GT 5spd with 130,000km , this sweet find really made me feel better
    I had it long enough to do some mods




    Traded it in cause I had no real full time job for 4 of the 6 years I owned it and it needed practically EVERYTHING replaced. So very very sad to see it go
    (but the body and interior were both still 9/10)


    So I traded in for this. 2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Wagon in Brilliant Silver Metallic-BSM
    (current pic)



    1 owner, 71,000km. Picked it up February 15 2012 . Current 112,500km May 4 2017

    DRIVETRAIN
    2.5i Automatic Trans. <- kinda regret that but my ankle and knee appreciate it lol
    Stock everything and stayin that way
    This isn't a car to throw go fast mods at

    INTERIOR
    Kept crazy clean at all times
    Audio stock and terrible but livable for now
    Retractable trunk cover
    Got the rubber trunk mat and the 2 sets of rubber and carpets specific for this model
    Front Driver and Passenger Weather Tech Floor Mats
    LED bulbs in the puddle/dome/map lights
    All I need is my heated seats

    EXTERIOR
    15% tint everywhere but windshield
    RA mud flaps
    Aftermarket mesh front grill
    Vent visor window covers
    EZ lip front lip
    EZ lip side skirts
    Plasti dipped mirror covers, door guards, diffuser, hatch bits
    De- Badged
    Roof rack crossbars that live off the car but could go on anytime
    JDM 08-09 Tail Lights

    WHEELS & SUSPENSION
    Stock 17" rims with crappy all seasons for now
    second set of LGT 17" rims with winter tires
    Stock suspension but it looks low because 90% of BP's are outbacks and ride high

    MAINTANENCE
    Both front wheel bearings - 1spring 2012/1 summer 2013
    Headlight bulbs - Summer 2012
    Battery - Spring 2012
    Cabin air filter - Summer 2013
    Big job- Summer 2014
    - New HG's both sides
    - New valve cover Gaskets
    - New timing belt + tensioners and all components
    - New AC and Alternator belts
    - New spark plugs
    - New Battery Terminal Contacts(old ones were covered in corrosion from the old battery)
    - Re-sealed a rim with a slow leak were the rubber meets alloy
    - New OEM Subaru long life coolant + new oil

    FUTURE PLANS
    Install the hella horns I bought
    Eventually replace the EZ lip with a real Bayson R front lip
    Continue doing 8-10k km's a year and keep this car for the next 10 years



    when I got it. totally stock





    Got some roof racks for $80


    De-badged the trunk


    Plasti-Dip'd the chrome bar



    Then plasti-Dip'd the grill


    Got RA flaps


    Then some AVS vent visors



    Plasti dip'd the mirror covers


    Got 15% tint, goodbye fishbowl



    Plasti Dip'd my Rear Diffuser area


    $20 EZ lip




    Plasti Dip'd my door guards- an old school look, I'm sure I'm the only BP rocking them




    I was going to plasti dip the whole car red, did a test panel to see the colour and liked it alot.
    But then I found out we needed a second car and it was gonna be a cheap one so I put the paint aside for the New ride. Our new Forester will be red this summer. I decided to rock the red hatch just for the hell of it







    Changed my cabin air filter


    Threw out a crazy $50 offer to someone selling their car on craigslist with this mesh grill and 2 months later they responded YES! best $50 spent on the car



    Bought this red overlay for $10 on ebay. wanted to red out the orange tail light section
    it works alright





    Just hit 90K KM recently, its a little over 91K now


    Current Stable at home



    Shot from this winter


    Much more to come, I love this car

    Re: iampetro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon

    Thanks

    I miss my 2 old BD's but the 4th gen's are a sweet upgrade. Mainly miss the 5spd's
    I daily drive it but only do 10k km a year so picking one up with low mileage was sweet
    They don't make legacy wagons anymore so picking up a clean last gen wagon is rare

    Re: iampetro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon

    Had a familiar awesome moment in the legacy just now

    2 young guys were in a POS corrola behind me at a light and I could read their lips talking about "what kinda car is that?"
    They started squirming in their seats trying to see more of the car and when we went around the corner they were both checking me out through the side windows

    my car stock is absolutly nothing special, theres tons of them on the road in other colours
    But a little plasti dip, tint and de-badge makes the heads turn for sure


    a couple shots from camping this past summer






    and a trunk full of my old BD legacy stuff. I'm keeping the JDM tails cause I could see myself buying another BD someday and the JDM tails are 100% necessary for BD's

    Re: iampetro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon *Mar.7-Monstert

    Goodbye seatbelt chime!

    I used the method:
    -key to on (not idle/ running) just on
    -within 30seconds buckle and unbuckle the drivers belt 20 times
    -turn car off

    Now when u turn it on it will only chime 6 times and stop for good, and not come back when u unbuckle.
    The passenger side is also turned off now, no need to repeat for that seat/buckle
    I have always driven with my belt on, it feels too weird without it on even just going down/around the block

    It's just always been annoying, when u get out of the car but leave it running it just won't stop dinging! Not anymore

    YouTube "subaru seatbelt" if you want to see many vids of ppl doing this

    Re: iampetro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon *Mar.7-Monstert

    life without seat belt chime is bliss

    Here's a quick shot of my car at work
    \

    Recently got an oil change
    changed the engine air filter
    and found 20+ sweet little cracks in one corner of my front bumper (pics tmw)

    I remember coming into the driveway hard and hitting the snowbank during the winter...
    looks like thats what I get. :P

    I'll have to cover it up with the new lip I wanna buy this summer

    Re: iampetro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon *April 1st

    Well twice this winter i drove into the snowbank at the end of my driveway instead of pulling into it


    Last time I looked, the spot on the left still had mostly paint cracks but it seems like they fell off in a giant patch and now there's a grey triangle of unpainted bumper skin. good thing the car is silver
    clearly the EZlip took it hard too

    I dont really plan on doing anything about the damage, its not that bad
    I'm going to order one of the new Bayson R 05-07 US legacy bumper lips. Might cover up the damage a bit
    Finally they made a bumper I can buy that will fit right out of the box

    well 1 year later I felt like a change.
    I'm going to dip the forester red soon so I want my car back to normal.

    Re: iampetro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon *May.12

    well it probly took about an hour of picking and peeling to take it all off.
    Over spray in cracks and the couple parts where my coats weren't heavy enough were the tough parts
    I think I'm going to re-do the black I had on that stupid chrome bar above my license plate

    Thanks man. I like it cleaner too.
    Maybe there will be a local show we can show of our wagons together.
    There's this new cars and coffee thing at the CTC tmw and I was gonna go with a few other NCSC members but I have go help my parents now, so I'll miss most of it and likely wont go late.

    If it goes well and nobody drifts, races, or crashes in the parking lot hopefully there will be a few more

    Turn out wasn't bad i would say 30 cars showed up due to weather and i know a lot of people are turned off because officer casey was hiding behind a corner giving lots of people tickets for "improper exhausts and etc" so it was smaller but still saw some pretty crazy cars that roam ottawa. Trackwerks was out with the new STI. not a lot of subbies though. maybe another time.

    installed my EZ-lip side skirts today. Not bad for $50 and it goes well with my front lip
    I ordered them extended to 8ft so I had enough to do part of the rear bumper too
    Pics are crappy, I'll have to take some better ones

    Re: Petro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon *June.27 side skir

    My legacy heat/air fan made weird sad noises last week and a quick search of LGT pointed me to this thread
    http://legacygt.com/forums/showthread.p ... 71888.html

    I tried my fan a few hours later and it was normal so I left it off for the past few days
    Well today is super hot so I figured I'd put the air on but when I turned from 0 to 1,2,3 or 4 nothing happens lol
    saw that coming

    I'm going to order one of these new ones off ebay.

    Re: Petro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon *June.27 side skir

    Found some old pics of my first LGT

    The first car I learned to drive was the '02 oldsmobile Alero seen in the pic.
    It was a super rare 5spd my parents special ordered(took awile to come in) and very fun to drive at 16
    It was about a year old when we drove it to florida and the dash just died out of no where. Had to drive super careful in another country with no speedo,gas guage,radio, A/C
    Then when I was finally using it in high school the transmission lost reverse. You would put it in reverse and the second you gave it gas it would slip left into fourth gear and go forward lol. Parking was fun for a month before that was fixed. it was on a 4 year lease and in the end they got rid of it


    My parents got a second car before I got mine since there were 3 of us driving and I wanted lots of seat time.
    It was the '05 Civic si coupe 5spd seen in the pics
    it was honestly the slowest worst car our family's owned lol. the alero was totally faster (but less reliable)



    I got my car and then we had 3 cars with
    -silver
    -5spd
    -16" alloys
    -sunroofs
    -spoilers
    -fog lights
    -power everything
    it was our own little fleet and it was nice at the time
    and clearly I had the oldest, nicest, and fastest car of the 3

    and now a little carnage
    its hard to see how mangled it really is but it was bad. It also had the window stuck open and of course there was a great Canadian blizzard that night...



    other side looked nice


    I kinda wanted it to be a write off so I'm glad they didn't try and repair it.
    It just sucked that I got to only drive 548km with my newly rebuilt engine
