Connor's '05 LGT Wagon
I'll keep the intro brief, here is my car.

Spartan was the 2nd owner, and I am now the 5th. Currently it has 115k on the clock, but definitely doesn't show it. All I've been doing with it right now has been getting the paint to as close to perfect as I can reasonably manage. In the coming weeks I'll need to take care of the condensation problem with the passenger side headlight and get around to fixing the leaky sandwich plate for the oil pressure gauge.

EDIT: 146k miles as of 8/12/15

Today I played with wheels.

Oh the benefits of a wagon. Fits eight wheels, a full size jack, and a toolbox with room to spare!

Fitted up some wheels to decide which ones I'd like to keep and which to sell. To begin with we have the current winter wheel, some 17" ASA wheel that I actually quite like.

Next some 17" gold RPF1s off my WRX. I really liked these too.

Then the 18" gunmetal Buddyclub P1s that came with the Legacy. I liked these the most.

It was a tough call, but I think I'm gonna sell the Enkei's. I already have 5 people lined up to buy them.

Definitely a fan of the Buddyclup P1's. Nice color wagon too by the way. Haha

What size were the enkeis? 17x7 or 8? and what tire was on it?
i've got an extra set of 17x8s in my garage that i haven't put race rubber on recently, and am thinking about re-purposing them for my legacy

I like the gold better

Con.Harr91 01-31-2013 10:05 AM

The Enkeis are 17x8 +45, not sure on the tire specs right now. I'll check. They did have a tiny bit of 'poke' to them.

Nice wagon:) I see some bilstein+pinks on it, do you use any spacers? it's sitting kind of high for that setup imo, I have to go out and actually look at mine, I think mine's lower on same setup.

RBP is a great color for BPs.

Congrtas! Threat her nice ;)

Con.Harr91 01-31-2013 11:44 AM

There are 1/4" spacers in the rear, I believe...

Tires are 225-50

Madison Sports Car Club had a dyno night at Kelly Moss Motorsports tonight. Strapped the LGT down and managed to do 225/275. I was expecting a higher horsepower number and lower torque, so I guess I'll be okay with the difference. :)

I am partial to the Buddy Club's. Mine are 5Zigen but same idea. And since RBP BP's are the best....

But since your last post to the dyno you were running them, lol....

I must have missed the mods on this. What is she runnin?

Con.Harr91 05-03-2013 12:59 PM

Check the link in post #1 to the previous owner's thread. Its a simple stage 2.

Holla 05-04-2013 06:41 PM

Nice car!

I'd have the say the Buddy Club looks the best. The gold on the Enkei's is too gold. If it were darker it would look better.

I'm also a fellow WI RBP wagon owner!

Con.Harr91 05-05-2013 12:06 PM

Thanks Holla!

I see you're in the Milwaukee area. Are you in Madison much? I've heard that there is another RBP LGT wagon around town, which is a shame cause that means I'll have to fight him.

Holla 05-06-2013 03:16 PM

I make it to Madison a few times a year but I doubt it's me you'd be seeing.

I've seen two other RBP LGT wagons around Milwaukee. One was a stock 5EAT that was parked down the street from my house and the other was identical to yours and it was for sale at Hiller Ford in Waukesha a few years ago.

Con.Harr91 05-06-2013 03:52 PM

Yeah, my girlfriend was saying that she was seeing my car downtown Madison a bunch when I knew I was nowhere the area, I thought she was seeing a similar car or something. Turns out there is actually is another lowered RBP LGT wagon on gunmetal wheels.

I must end him.
