Where do I start… I acquired this pristine Legacy about 3 years ago. I purchased it from the original owner who was selling because he was offered a company car (Acura MDX). Didn’t need a third vehicle so he sold this. I purchased the car with just under 100k miles. Stock condition. The car was originally purchased from Bill Kolb Subaru in NY as a “GTX” package. For those that don’t know, Bill Kolb takes standard platforms and then “modifies” them. Usually in a tacky manner. HOWEVER, the GTX package consisted of a Borla Catback, factory Short Throw shifter and Stainless Steel Brake Lines. Quite classy indeed.
I financed the vehicle at a 2.5% interest rate, hence the lien. There is still about $6,000 owed which I will gladly payoff once the vehicle is sold. I will have the title the same day.
For those that don’t know, I work for a Subaru dealership in NNJ. This is my 3rd Legacy GT and 11th Subaru. I have a habit of fixing things that are not broken. Call it OCD, anal retentive, I am SUPER critical about all of my machines!
I am in no hurry to sell. Reason for sale is I'm looking at a company car. Ironic to the situation in which I acquired it. I am contemplating keeping it, but for my asking price, I will let the car go.
I said to myself when I got this car that I wouldn’t modify it past Stage II. On both my last Legacy’s one thing led to another and ultimate resulted in cracked ringlands and the motor needing a rebuild. It started off as Stage II. Then the turbo was replaced with a BNR billet 18g. A few thousand miles later what I thought was a spun bearing was actually the top ¼ ringland which cracked off and went through the motor. (at ~118,000 miles). That resulted in the following…

I have all the receipts/invoices for all the items. The Block was machined and built by Rallispec in Central NJ (great reputation). I assembled the rest, and ordered all new valve buckets as compared to swapping them and being close. That alone cost about $150. I have over $10,000 in JUST THE MOTOR! With less than 10,000 miles on the build. The car is truly a must see. The motor should handle ~600hp. The car is running just over 400 bhp. There’s room for improvement but I wanted a fast/reliable setup. The best part is she doesn’t burn oil and it’s not noisy like most built motors. There’s plenty of other modifications which I haven’t listed…subtle solutions accessory belt cover, SPT battery tie down. I’ve even upgraded to a 2009 Legacy Key fob so the key and remote are on one fob instead of the typical key and remote. That means I have all 4 keys. The car is in outstanding condition. It’s a must see to believe. See the below pictures. Email for more pics, information and to see the vehicle. NO JOY RIDES.
Imperfections: there are a few door dings here and there, worst one shown in the picture, passengers side rear quarter. Nothing that a little PDR can't get out. Couple scratches on the back bumper, 2 minor scratches on the front pass side bumper. Also has a cracked windshield at this time which I do plan on replacing with a factory windshield.
Thank you for looking.
