    Gecko's 95 Legacy URV - Gone but not forgotten

    Hello, guess its time I make one of theses...lol.

    Bought it on March 14, 2009 with 160k miles on it.
    Its an auto but it's proving to be everything I wanted in a car.

    Vehicle History:
    I'm the 3rd owner of this vehicle.
    I got from a family who had just lost a family member. They just wanted the car gone.
    The gentleman that they lost was the owner of it. He had it from 2000 to 2009 and only put 60k on it.
    The owner before that put the other 100k on it.


    I took the front license plate holder off...looks so much better


    Did some paint. I know its sorta common but I like it. It offsets the grey everywhere else.


    No more 'L' or dealer tag.


    Gold Hubcaps


    New Grill

    Thats it for pics.

    =====Future Plans 6/24/09=====
    Exterior:
    GT Front Bumper
    GT Hood
    Some Subaru Rim (odds are 16" WRX)
    A spoiler (dont know what one yet, leaning towards the STi)
    JDM Headlights

    Interior:
    Steering wheel change out (to what I dont know)
    Seats change (WRX in the front, Later BD(non-blue and cupholder in the back)

    Check new posts for updated photos!

    EDIT: Want to know what URV stands for...Look HERE

    Re: Gecko's 95 Legacy

    Not a bad little car you got there. IDK how I feel about the gold caps, black might look nice. I think a GT bumper would be a great addition to the car.

    I wanted to see how the gold would look with the silver. And I like it. Hopefully I can find some gold WRX wheels for on this.

    Re: Gecko's 95 Legacy

    Bumping time with a question.
    Will a steering wheel from a newer (like 05) STi work in a BD6? I know I'd need to rewire the horn and cruise and airbag.

    Airbag will not work. Clockspring needs to be from a '98+ Subaru. If you buy a JDM wheel you will need to take a dremel saw and cut into it where the cruise control stalk would be.

    Updating time. Got a coupon for 20% off a subaru accessory from any dealer. So, I went and got the official all-weather floor mats (I went through 2 different sets of department store generic ones with no success in fitting the way they should).


    Another update for me is my 6 disc CD Changer from user T_F_E.

    Had to rewire in the sub RCAs

    Re: Gecko's 95 Legacy

    nice looking BD you got there. Definetly needs some JDM headlights and rims now

    Its too bad you have an auto but nothing is stopping you from swapping later on.

    Thanks for the comment.

    I am currently after some snowflake wheels, yet again STiRally8 might be the helper here.

    I know i need some JDM. I want the headlights and outside taillights.

    its from a 06 WRX, It works with the factory plug. The reason for all my wiring in the one picture is that the factory unit has no RCA for subwoofer installations so I had to put in a converter.

    I dont believe so. Mine is aftermarket. Was already installed when I got the car.

    Mini-Update.

    New Wheels. Took em off cause the tires were crap on them but atleast I have em.
    Grill has been painted.


    I am just amazed at the tire profile (that was the best tire in the pic)


    Not in the picture, My Subaru emblem is a close to Cherry Blossom Red color (Rhine River Rose, Krylon H2O paint- mentioned on NASIOC as being a close color)

    New suspension is in the works.
    New Interior
    Gonna rework the sound system soon

    All older Subaru vehicles, non current models (<07), that use the standard single or double din head unit use the same plug to my knowledge.

    Re: Gecko's 95 Legacy

    Wow...
    I didnt even bother to see where you were...thats a heck of a drive. Ill keep your offer in mind...I do make random trips that way.

    =================================================

    Got a question for all you mechanics
    i have a CEL on right now
    P0400 -Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction
    and
    P0420 -Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)

    I have replaced the EGR Valve with a newer used one (cleaned it out myself)
    What do i need to do or check to get ride of these CELs and get my mileage up

    looks like you have a cat going bad, but advance or auto-zone should be able to clear the codes for free

    I would rather fix it. my mileage is shitty even for subarus.

    Does the cat going explain both codes? Should I be concerned about my o2 sensors?

    EDIT: On another note, the CEL light comes and goes. Its not the bulb.
