nevets27 Posted October 11, 2017 Share Posted October 11, 2017 (edited) Just recently purchased a 2009 Legacy 3.0R in Quartz Silver Metallic (wanted blue but sometimes you can't get everything you want) This will replace my 1994 Legacy. It's a Canadian version because well I'm Canadian. Which means its almost a Limited version. We didn't get the Bilstein suspension or wheels the Limited 3.0r received in the USA and the brakes are the same as the 2.5i but the rest from what I can find is the same. This is going to be my daily driver which is why I picked the 3.0r. I have another car to play with so I don't plan on doing any mods that will degrade the enjoyment of it being a daily driver. Not to say that I don't want it to be sporty. Going to try to hold off from modding the crap out of it but it will get its share of mods. Just not interested in ruining the ride and there is very limited engine upgrade option. There will definitely be reliability and convenience upgrades. It has 170,00 KM (105K miles). It's in very good condition rust wise. It's gone thru a lot of winters up here and its done very well. The bottom of the doors is where it's showing that it hasn't lived its life in a dry sunny climate. Format for this thread will be: First post is completed mods and repairs/current state of the car Second post is in progress mods and repairs. Third is future mods and repairs. After a bunch of work after I first got her, this is the first time out of the garage, fitting day for a Subaru.
