    Wow, very nice. I take it that the grille and bumper are just the beginning.

    Looks great!

    Welcome to the light

    I hadn't seen your car with the bumper mounted, but it looks tons better! You even got the JDM foglights. Very nice.

    heres a couple newer photos.....and yes, it desperately needs to be cleaned, but i just havent gotten around to it




    and demonstrating its bird-eating abilities



    that was bird #7....just hit #10 yesterday


    also revised the list of planned mods to be more realistic of what i want done. i have determined that this car is damaged in some way from a previous shunt by the original owner's husband (note how the hood, bumper and grill dont quite line up) and is not worth sinking a ton of money into......next car, i will but thats a long way off...

    Re: fwa2500's 1997 Legacy <update>: new wheels!

    well, i now own a set of WRX wheels.......they need paint (im leaning towards bronze) and matching tyres, but they were only 225 for all 4 plus the tyres already mounted on them.....i couldnt not jump on them as an early b-day gift to myself:

    Re: fwa2500's 1997 Legacy <update>: new wheels!

    Those wheels defiantly need some paint! The second gen wagons always seem to look good with WRX wheels on them.

    Re: fwa2500's 1997 Legacy <update>: new wheels!

    the thing though is i want something more subtle and less shouty, plus i just like the look of bronze on white.

    EDIT:

    oh, and the other day i clicked past 80k miles

    Only 80k?! I thought my car didn't have many miles compared to other people here.
    I have roughly 110k, but 80k is awesome.. It's practically brand new considering how long these cars last!
    Diggin' the wheels too.

    J-Hot is pretty good, I've had no problems with them.
    You were first! not my style tho, I'd get there way late.. fashionably late that is..

    And i just remembered that this has to be car eating bird season or something. My car has tried to eat 2 birds with no avail recently. Those zenki bumpers just don't do the trick. Maybe I should get a JDM bumper too?

    Re: fwa2500's 1997 Legacy wagon, update: WRX wheels

    when i bought it a year ago it only had 50k on it, so my one year doesn't do it justice.

    get those wheels painted and on your car i'm interested to see how this turns out!

    when i bought it a year ago it only had about 50k on it, so my one year doesn't do it justice.

    get those wheels painted and on your car i'm interested to see how this turns out!

    looks great, but I vote black or a gun metal gray for the WRX wheels.

    You can do any color with a white car. As long as you like it, who cares?

    I'd do Mazda Protege 5 yellow on mine if I had another set. I'm a bit sick like that though!

    yeah the only color I'd stay away from for the wheels is white. Other than that I think it's pretty open, but my vote is a gold or bright green.

    Hey, I never realized you color matched the bezel of your grille. Looks great.

    i think it would be more worth wile to look for an outback or GT hood with the scoop than drive that far for essentially the same thing
