|A few things posted Tuesday, March 2, 2010 by Dave|
The BBS is undergoing an upgrade from an older version of the software. If you're reading this, and the BBS isn't working, that's why. It should be done in a few hours, with some tweaks to follow.
My GT is sold. I was able to find a local who was willing to do some work in order to get it back on the road. I did end up selling much of the aftermarket part catalog I'd had on the car, but I am definitely pleased that it's in rolling condition and is being looked after. The last thing I wanted is for it to end up at a salvage yard.
My 98 Legacy L wagon is going strong. I have a hesitation that's bothering me right now, so the warming weather means I'm less reluctant to spend time in the garage.

I have a new car...don't worry, it's another Legacy, but I am selling the 2000 Legacy GT Limited to make room and so I can do some neat things to the new Legacy.
email me if you want more details about the price, specifically, but you can get more information by going to this thread on the Legacy Central BBS:

I realized that not long ago the site had turned 10. The first archived post I have was from early February 1999. Crazy.
Well, the site itself doesn't get a lot of added content, but the Gallery and BBS/Forum do, so if you're looking for new and interesting stuff, make sure you check out the Legacy Central BBS.
Oh, and it's time to clean that air filter again.

October was the last time I cleaned my air filter. It was filthy.
Clean or replace yours. Better power, better fuel mileage and better sound.

Overheating has been an on and off problem with this car, literally from the day I bought it. There were a few years of no problems after I got the heads shaved, gaskets and radiator replaced, but the tide is coming back in (or leaving).
I found a new radiator and I'm going to put in another bottle of the Subaru Coolant System Conditioner to make absolutely sure that the headgasket is sealed as much as it can be, then swap the radiator in this weekend after another 100 miles or so of driving.
I did find out that the 04-07 STI radiator should be a direct replacement for that of the 00-04 Legacy. Many STI owners with lots of modifications like to upgrade to thicker and more effective radiators, so they're not hard to find on sites like NASIOC.
Oh, I forgot to mention that I sold my Prodrive P-WRC1 wheels and picked up a set of 04 WRX STI BBS wheels for the car. They're much lighter and still look good. Some 225/45-17 BFGoodrich g-force KDW-2 tires are on them and so far I really like it:

The Rota SDRs stay on for winter duty because they also look good and are very light. My Hankook Ice Bear W300s still have plenty of life left in them, so no need to make changes there.
I am in the process of downgrading my brakes from the 05 Legacy GT 12.3" setup to the more reasonable 11.4" WRX/Outback/LGT parts, but it sure has been a pain to get everything together and find the time.
