Gecko's H6 Outback Sedan
 
So on July 2, 2013, I signed my life away for a new car. No more second gen Legacy. Enter the Outback L.L. Bean sedan.

These things seem to be very hard to fine. After I test drove one for the hell of it, I fell in love with the 3.0R. I was thinking turbo was my future but I'm glad I found this.

No complexity, no lag, all power!

My first mod which was done on this day was thank to this forum for instructions. DRL Disable.

I had a theme I called the URV for my second gen Legacy. I plan on continuing that with this vehicle.

URV stands for Urban Rally Vehicle.
Urban for the primary environment. Style elements as well. (it'll still see dirt, don't worry)
Rally for set-up. Not all about power but handling is key.
Vehicle for the fact it is my daily driver still.

(08/24/13) First part of that theme would be mud flaps. On the 2nd gen, I had plastic Rally Armors. This car got the UR treatment.

(09/03/13) New Wheels Purchase. One heck of a good deal I think.
2013 Impreza Sport Premium Rims. 17x7 +48.
Only have 300 miles on em and included TMPS sensors. Got these for 325.

I am looking into other grille options. Definitely something with less chrome.

Shockingly no, I don't. Its very clean and features a Green Air Filter sticker.



--==UPDATE==--
Well, Rims are too new plus I don't think gold is a good fit for them anyway. So I needed gold elsewhere.

Looks great! I have an '09 3.0R with those same wheels, but they are silver. They are actually the OBXT '08+ wheels. I wasn't a fan of them when I got the car but then I saw pics of them painted gunmetal or gold, it changed my mind.

Well... My mother traded in my old Legacy and got my Outbacks twin.
Its not quite a twin but its close. Mine is 2006 OBP Outback Sedan LL Bean 3.0R with Nav. Hers is a 2006 OBP Outback Sedan 2.5i Limited. She has black interior and I have tan. She has a wingless trunk that I will be stealing.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-g...0/IMG_5421.JPG

Debating on how to badge my ride. Since I'm getting a wingless trunk here soon and I don't know if I want to give it the 3.0R Badge or the SLi Badge. Don't really care for the L.L. Bean Badging.

Part one has arrived and part two has been ordered. This will really add to the look.

The only real and valid reason I have for getting during the xmas season. For getting the tree and borrowing the latter to put the xmas lights up... Hope to get another use out of it, to haul my R/C cars.

The wing and myself have parted ways. I never much cared for it. Yes it looks nice BUT it at night and my auto dimming mirror fail to work well as the headlights are mostly hitting the wing and not triggering the auto dimming function. Also, my past experience with the Legacy and its wing taught me that you have to clean its underside by hand and the snow brush doesn't fit under it.
