Hey all,

Thought I would start a thread for my wagon, as despite not intending to mod it much, it seems I quickly forgot about that...


Suspension and Handling Mods

- BR BC Coilovers
- Cusco Front Strut brace
- Cusco Rear swaybar
- Summit Rear Strut brace
- Upgraded LCA bushes
- Cusco Front swaybar


Cosmetic Mods

- TommyKaira front mesh grill colour matched, with GT badge
- JDM stickers
- Debadged rear, replaced with Subaru GT badge.
- DAMD rear wing, colour matched
- Valenti rear tail lights (dark smoked)
- Rear apron
- Headlights by Leo (hks180)
- Rear reflector LED upgrade
- Strobe pack indicators
- Valenti centre tail light (dark smoked)
- Stance SC-7 20" black rims
- Nitto Neo Gen tyres

Power Mods

- Invidia downpipe (catted)
- Invidia Q300 cat back
- Kido tune
- AVO TMIC


Interior:

- Prova Si drive knob
- STI gear knob


Future plans:
- More chassis stability, Cusco Power brace.
- Rear apron




Anyway, it is a MY10 Libwagon, in manual. It was quite hard to find, but I was lucky - I got the colour I wanted, with only 35k kms on the clock.
I had it sent down from Brisvegas by Car Search (thanks Ray Jenkins), who pretty much did everything including rego transfer, inspections, transport, etc.

OK, so it starts as a completely stock wagon, the only mod being copious amounts of dog hair in the back.

My first mod (not really a mod) was to snag some plates.

Image

Also, drift spec fluffy dice.

Image

Today, I had Moar-Low installed. A set of BC BR coilovers helped with the stance (hard to tell from the crappy pics, sorry).

This,

to this.

Image

Just got back from a run up Springwood Rd, and it is a vast improvement over stock - flat through corners, and the ride is still fairly plush (running 8 on the front and 10 on the rear).

Hey Linc, love the drop in ride height, may I ask where you got your coilovers from?

Just Jap at Kirrawee - well technically, I got them from my front door.
I ordered them over the phone, and they arrived a week later. They had most in stock, but not mine.

Did a few more small upgrades on the weekend -

Tommykaira mesh grill (will be colour matched with black mesh)

Image

Also debadged the rear, and added a new one.

Image

I will get the same for the grille with my next Japarts order.

Also fitted a Prova SI knob (added about 15kW I reckon).

Installed a Cusco front strut brace yesterday, and I am surprised how much of a difference i could feel from it.
If I had known it would improve the steering and suspension so much, it would have been my first mod!

If you wanted to further improve handling, definitely go for upgraded LCA bushes and swaybars (you wont be disappointed!).
