Starting an official build thread a bit late here, but better late than never!

I've been a proud Subaru owner for 12 years now. My first new car was my 2002 WRX that I still own to this day. It was turned into a dedicated show car years ago, has been featured on 3 magazine covers and to date has won nearly 100 awards all across the United States.

Following the decision to really get into building my WRX, I went through a few different daily drivers. Including: 2005 BMW X5 (w Volk TE37's); 2007.5 Chevy Silverado 2500HD TurboDiesel (Still have this as my tow vehicle - ~450whp/900wtq); 2008 BMW 550i Sport (company lease, fun car!); 2001 MB E55 AMG (VIP Style - slammed on 19x10" AME wheels).

All of those were nice rides, but in the back of my head I always missed the old WRX and longed for the days when I used to actually be able to drive it around easily and practically. That's where the Legacy came in... I like the idea that it was a bit more "grown up", had plenty of room for family (recently married), and of course, the fact that it was a turbo Subaru sealed the deal.

I hunted for a few weeks for a car to test drive, and then another few weeks for the color combo I wanted. Luckily I was able to find the black/black LGT at a dealership a few hours away - immediately placed a deposit and went to purchase it the next week.

Began modding the LGT basically on day one and haven't stopped yet! Thanks to everyone here on the boards for contributing and helping others learn.
