Bought this lazy lady in late 2010 with 107ks on the odo, I've spent the last year getting it back to a decent condition parts wise and now slowly upgrading. The aim is to get it handling, stopping and looking perfect to make up for the lack of power in the N/A engine.

So, here it is as it stands today.

Went about doing a few easy interior changes first thing after the mod bug bit.

installed an impreza dash cluster, made something of a harness using plugs from the new dash and rewiring and running into the plugs of a wrecked foz then plugged into the stock plugs. Is fully functional and do still have my messy as **** write up if anyones interested.

Next up was the JDM rear light mod, I do alot of driving to and from a mates house up in Frankston and the occasional trip up to the snow so i wanted to have a little bit more rear light for the dark highways and snowy roads, deviated slightly from regular and wired in a brake light aswell as the park light.

Excuse the crappy Iphone pics on this one..

Thanks mate! :thumbs:
Scored this one off Ebay, came up cheap with an option to buy it now so just jumped on it. Makes a big change from the woodgrain center console the limited's came with as standard.

Threw on a set of UEL headers and a JDM Apexi diff back from a jap Legacy i believe, bought off CRUISN so he can correct me if I'm wrong. 2.25" inlet through to a 3" tip.
Makes a nice deep rumble, will finish off soon with a high flow cat.

Latest buy is a set of 01 Wrx struts with super low king spring, 80k Kms on the struts and 120k Kms on the springs. I'm thinking the drop might be pretty drastic but will see how it looks and feels once they're in and tested for a few weeks.
