    best first car my Legacy

    I recently got my first car it is a 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i premium.
    So far its been a very reliable car and I love the way it drives the only thing I hate about is that its not manual.
    Eventually I plan to a buy a WRX or STi I would like to get an '04 and mod the hell out of it because I can not do anything to my Legacy.
    The reason I joined this website is to get ideas on what to do with my WRX once I purchase one and too meet some cool people thanks

    Keep that one stock and drive it like a granny and leave the rough driving and modding to the wrx! It's always good to have one car you know will get you to work while your other one is getting parts put on!

    I love my legacy and it drives like a bigger impreza once you put you step on it and it's handles pretty well even with TCS off

    Not so! See here: Raptor Superchargers

    Note that the Legacy is a vastly more refined car than the WRX. If I were in your shoes wanting a WRX, I'd trade your 2.5i in for a Legacy GT of the same year. All the turbo goodness of the WRX (with a 40hp increase over an '04 WRX), a 6-speed manual, and a generally more upscale package than an '04 WRX.

    If only Subaru had brought the 2010 LGT wagon to the US (available in pretty much all other world-wide markets), I would have one in my garage. They even offered an STI version in Japan.

    Anyway, welcome!

    You can turbo them pretty easily, especially since all those parts come direct from Subaru's factory.

    Good luck with that. Cars must be at least 25 years old to legally import. All other stories otherwise are shady at best, and you always run the risk of vehicle seizure. You'd be better off just getting the engine and transmission.
