Thank you.. Yes I love it. I looked at a LOT when I was searching for a new daily and it is the most beautiful by far and the cheapest . It's the first car I have ever bought that had all the little things done that I usually do to make it a bit special. The only cosmetic thing I have done is painted the calipers bright YELLOW. and put YELLOW hella sharp tone horns behind the grill. Our other Subarus have those so why not the GT..lol.

Thanks mate.. It took me a while to decide which colour to choose. I looked at other cars that were similar in colour to my Liberty, cars like Lamborghini etc and a lot of dark grey cars had yellow callipers and other parts of the car were highlighted in yellow as well. I'm a big fan of yellow but it can be tricky to get good depth but fortunately the calliper paint is quite thick and dark.. The stickers were just some spare ones I had from Ebay.. I'm retired so it's easy to find time to play with our cars so they all have painted calipers.. I did my Blue GC8s callipers in Blue with Yellow SUBARU stickers to match the CLUB SPEC stickers that are also yellow.

I do the calipers on the car, which is a bit slack but I do mask and prepare them well before painting and they have lasted for 10 years on the GC8.

Thanks Oliver.. I didn't know much about Liberties when I bought it and I still don't but one thing I have learnt which may have changed my choice is the fact that the 3.6 liter non turbo models are very quick cars. Having said that the turbo models go ok but slow when compared to our Rexs.. I think I probably still bought the Lib I have because the previous owner did an awesome job or modding it with almost $6000 worth of cool extras and with the xforce TBE I fitted it sounds good now as well. I use it as a daily and LOVE the auto. I take my rex out from under it's cover every 6 weeks or so and go for a spirited mountain drive just for the thrill of it. If I could get my Lib to go like that without spending big bucks. Unfortunately the go fast parts for the lib engines are much rarer in the 2nd hand parts market because there are a LOT less options.
