Two small issues:

 

- Try buying a gear knob that suits the car. SOmething like this:

- NEVER put your car keys on a key chain with other stuff or you will end up scratching the Claussor and near by.

 

 

The rest of the car looks awesome bud!

I was considering a Flossy knob or Cobb knob. I really like the momo Subaru five speeds but they want like 180$ or something g for them and they aren't that heavy.

As for the keys. Idk it's all good there are so many little things that I'm OCD about already that I want to patch and clean up. Like all the little scratches on the center console area that I want to repaint. I'm super careful around my car as it is.

It's on stock suspension for now because of where I live. Lots of pot holes, uneven pavement, weather conditions, and just bad roads in general. I'm defiantly doing suspension but just can't decide on the direction. Plus since I'm runnin a big tire I would need at least need a roll, which im not against but just something else.

I think coils wouldn't be realistic for a daily unless I dropped a ton on fancy coils.

I could go the lower springs with new struts. Then I would want the links to get upgraded and brakes. It's a never ending game haha.


Thanks all for the comments

Suspension for rougher roads: my suggestion would be Bilstein B8s with Eibach springs. Lots of the M3 and fast VAG guys run that setup in the UK, our roads are awful and it's a fantastic balance between performance and damping. Don't know if they do them for the second-gen though- they definitely do for the third.

Thanks for that, I'll take a look at them. I don't want to ruin my ride quality for the few times I attack corners or go race. It's still my daily for now. Gonna edit my list didn't realize suspension and braking wasn't included.

Bilsteins are nice. Plus they can be rebuilt for cheap and revalved on down the road if you ever decide to go stiffer with your spring rates.

I would love to get some type of adjustable coilovers. Then lift in the winter lower in the summer.

Any opinions on coils from your experiences.

I've run KWs in the past, both V1 and V2. They're regarded as some of the better riding stuff (there's a great deal of utter bilge on the market) and they were both very hard, even on their softest settings. I've also run Street Comforts, which were really good.

Cleaned up headlights make such a huge difference in the look of a car.

I totally agree, and its not even that difficult just takes some time if you want a good outcome.

TE37's are my dream wheel. Thats why I went with the EV5's they had a similar appearance, Im thinking about painting them black. When I find 4g's laying around you bet I would get me some.

You could always get a set of Rota Grids. They seem to have overcome their historic quality control issues and they're pretty decent, fairly light wheels.

Rotas would kinda be likely winter rims, just because of the notorious reputation they have but I'm not too sure I'd trust them. But yeah,I can't believe this car group if you will call them that lives in my area has the ability to get work, rays, bbs wheels on their cars and change it up every so often. On top of the voltex wings, varis body kits, toms tailights etc.And have a summer and winter car.

Man I want to get there in life

Shop guys have the ability to do all that swapping and stuff on the shops dime 90% of the time. Order stuff in that they are suppose to sell but instead go "try" them out or use them for advertising, then take them off and sell them for almost new price. With all these laying around of coarse they are gonna play with them. http://legacygt.com/...ing-223975.html

 

Or you got the guys that grind up for them, like what I want to do with my Enkeis on the wagon. I will sell them and take that money and add some more on top to upgrade then repeat till you got some crazy ass JDM as F*ck awesomness. The legacy is my wifes car so she wants SSR GTV2's and seems pretty set on it. 


Just for kicks.

There "notorious reputation" is largely bullsh*t, from quality control issues the best part of a decade ago, and snobbery in the JDM scene. They build OEM wheels for Toyota and a couple of other manufacturers, and I know numerous racing teams and club racers who swear by them. All their wheels are JWL VIA certified, which is the same basic certification that most of the other (read more expensive) JDM wheel manufacturers all meet.

Screw it, I'll probably get a set since there's no way I'll ever be able to part ways with 4gs for some volks. They look alright and I don't race my car, should be alright.
