Hi, I have to replace the ignition on my BE legacy after having it stolen and I'm wondering if there is any differences between the manual and auto's ignition? I've seen some advertised as being for an automatic but I was assuming they are all the same?

Welcome to the USMB.

Yes there is a difference, the automatic ignition will have key lock mechanism in there that won't allow you to remove the key unless the shifter selector is in park. It's possible I supose to jumper the wires together for this lock mechanism, but without seeing a wiring diagram, I couldn't say for sure.
