This is my 2nd Legacy (& my 8th Suby), my first being a '11 3.6R Premium.
I just took delivery of a '13 2.5i Limited in SWP. I've got a few plans for it.

So far I've completed:
Debadged
30% tint
Works 11R 18x9.5 +38mm matte bronze / black lugs & caps
Dunlop Sport 600 245/40/18
Tein Street Basis coilovers
JDM tS (tuned by STI) spoiler in gloss black
JDM HKS Legamax axleback exhaust

I'll use this thread to update my progress.

Ordered H&R Sport Springs. I had them on my '11, curious to see how they work with the new '13 dampers.

I decided on Works Emotion 11R in matte bronze 18x9.5 with black Works lug nuts & black Works center caps.

After 2 days on the H&R's here's my report:

They are much better matched with the '13 struts than the '11s. I know spring rates were changed for '13, were the dampeners changed as well? The ride is very close to stock, maybe a little less roll in the corners and without the front end bounce my '11 had.

I had the wheels and tires installed Saturday. I'll have pics up soon enough. I also installed the fog light film.

Contemplating dual exhaust options. Maybe just a 3.6 catback.

I'm looking forward to show season now!

More pics of H&R's on the swp please. And yes, 2013 shocks are a little stiffer than previous models, but only by 10 or 15%, per Subaru. Nice wheels too. Curious to see how they fit with the H&R's.

Love the works man. Can we see some better shots of the whole car with the 11R's on?

Very awesome. Bronze looks great.

Looks sweet! What offset on the wheels?

L3go 03-27-2013 05:05 AM

+38. I can't believe I left that out of the original post...

GTEASER 03-27-2013 09:06 AM

Looks great man!!! Not a fan of the bronze myself, but the wheel style and width look great!!

Do you have any rubbing issues with the car as low as that on the H&R's? If not, do you think you would if you went with a 255 or 265/40-18?

worth 03-27-2013 09:10 AM

I was just going to say, with a 9.5" wheel on H&R's and 38 offset and you're not rubbing?

feesh 03-27-2013 10:15 AM

It's crazy, in those pics the 245 doesn't even look that stretched on those wheels.
