Hello everyone.
My name is Adrian and I purchased this legacy two weeks ago from a private seller in CT.

My previous car was an 04 Audi S4 V8. Very fun car but maintenance costs and gas prices made me get rid of it. I did have warranty on it for the 3 years that I owned it but once that was up I had to get rid of it.
Before that I owned a 91 eclipse gsx and 91 galant vr4 so as you can see I love awd turbo cars.
The subaru is not turbo since I wanted something very reliable and less headaches and at the same time easier to keep stock and not modify it.

Anyways, its an 05 2.5i Limited, silver, black leather interior, one owner, clean carfax, automatic with 140k miles on the clock. Its in pretty decent shape minus the bumpers having minor scrapes and a small crack on the rear bumper. It came with a lot of receipts and well documented service history on it.

As with the previous cars I always try to do my own maintenance and upgrades so I already chanced the spark plugs with some NGK's coppers, and put on a K&N filter and new wipers.

Front left axle has a broken boot but since I don't know how long its been like that I'm going to change the whole axle and while I'm at it I will do the right one just to make sure I won't have to do it for a long time.

It could also use some new tires soon so I'm getting ready to order some General Altimax from tire rack. Can't go wrong for $400 bucks.

In the near future I would like to get the Morimoto H1 Retrofit kit from the retrofitsource and tint the windows. That will pretty much do it for mods.

As far as maintenance goes I plan on doing a full service on fluids (engine, transmission, front diff, rear diff, bleed the brakes).
Any advice on fluids and quantities? I haven't had time to research yet but plan on doing it soon.

Thanks for taking time to read this and I'm looking forward to help the legacygt forum.

For whatever reasons the pics won't load up but I will keep trying.
