Notice the difference in the wood grain trim in the outback on the dash.

 

I like the front lip on the Legacy.

 

Do you have to have a front plate in your state ?

I think the wood grain trim is the same in both Outback/Legacy - under bright flash it is more obvious than usual.

 

Yes, in Colorado we have a front plate.

 

I like that the contrast stitching does NOT contrast much on the gray leather.

Here are some pics with full detail. 3 stage detail.

The whole front is clear bra (xpel) also the whole rear bumper is clear bra. The headlights have clear bra too. But I wish the whole headlight was clear bra but they did just the front, the sides were a bit tough to do because of the angle. Xpel is a heavier film so its a bit rough when bending.

clay/polish/seal.

Usually the clay wasn't necessary on a new car, but opted to just do it.

 

Also I replaced the OEM tires with the Continental DWS 06, makes a world of a difference in ride quality and performance in rain and light snow.

Tomorrow its going back to the dealership to get the remote start installed.

Next thing is to get the ugly USDM grille outta there and get the JDM grille installed.

$405 is a hard pill to swallow. zZz

 

Lastly in the next few weeks I will be looking at a shop to vinyl wrap the window trims to a gloss black.

The grille should be here next week.

 

Any reason in particular you went with MGM over CBP or any of the other colors? I'm torn. I love Black, so hard to keep clean, and I've seen a Leg 3.6 in MGM around here, not sure if from my town or not.

Black cars are nice, but dark gray has been my color.

Problem with black is scratches and imperfections will show a lot more.

As you mentioned its gonna be a PITA to keep them clean. Also swirls and other stuff will show more on black.

This time around I was actually considering going with the crimson red pearl but none of them around here are 3.6R and didn't want to wait to order it from the factory, plus I was getting a pretty good deal on my fully loaded leggy.

 

Now if you were to get whole front end of the car clear bra and full hood then I think you would be okay with black.

Hi, where did you order the grille?

Here is the baby, had the chrome edges deleted with Avery Dennison vinyl wrap, they took the grille apart so they could do a proper wrap, they separated the chrome from the black.

 

Overall it looks fantastic!
