    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

    This isn't a car to throw go fast mods at

    WHEELS & SUSPENSION
    Stock 17" rims with crappy all seasons for now
    second set of LGT 17" rims with winter tires

    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
