Just wanted to update everyone on the Yakima rack situation for the sedans -- this should apply to both the 2.5i and the GT, limited and non-limited. I emailed Yakima asking about a fit kit and received this reply:

We have updated the fit for the '05 Legacy Sedan. Here are the specifications for your vehicle:
Vehicle: SUBARU Legacy Sedan
Year Range: 2005-2005
Factory Rack: N/A Weight Limit: 165
Tower/Attachment: Q Towers
Rqd Accessory:
Crossbar Length: 48" CrossBar
Fairing: 44" Fairing
Front Clips/Landing Pads: Q53-E
Rear Clips/Landing Pads: Q53-E

M1: 41 1/2 M2: 7 M3: 41 M4: 30
M1 Max: M2 Max: M3 Max: M4 Max:
63. For a secure fit pull down door frame seals enough to insert the clip against underside of raingutter, trim, and/or roof.

If you have any other questions, please contact Customer Service at 888-925-0703 7am to 5pm Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. If you reply to this email, please include all previous correspondence.

Thank you,
Yakima Support
This info still isn't in their online fit guide (as of 9/21/2004).

I now have the clips, and already had the rack from my previous car, but haven't had a chance to set it up yet... Hopefully this weekend. I'll post another update if there are any issues or additional pertinent information.
