James' Yellow 1998 "banana boat" RSB

Recommended Posts

Hey all thought I would share my Legacy with you chaps. This is my 1998 Subaru Legacy RS-B BD5 it was my first car and I have owned it for nearly 3 years, it was purchased with 228,000 kilometers on the clock and was a factory twin turbo'd 5 speed manual with the ej20r engine. in late 2015 I grenaded the bottom end as these older ej20s love to do and decided to rebuild the car, since purchase I have done quite alot to the car including a single turbo conversion.

The car has been back on the road running and registered for a week now and I couldn't be any happier with the car so far, I'll let this thread be the journey from this point in time. and attach the mod list below.

I've never seen it. Not even in pics. Only yellow subarus i've seen are the bugeyes, brz, XV crosstrek


Its a JDM only colour only came on the 97-98 model legacies and a very few amount of GC8 Sti coupes and sedans. I imagine a factory cashmere yellow GF8 wagon is a super unicorn haha
