Hi Guys,
I'm a newbie to the boards but a regular on others here in OZ.
I own what you call a Legacy RS maybe. We call it a Liberty RS Turbo. Mine is a 93 model, is my every day transport and I circuit race it on weekends.
Yes I know it's a wagon but it serves me well in all my other pursuits. I'm a keen Mountain biker and Snowboarder, but racing is my passion.

We have our own website for this car specifically it's www.rslibertyclub.org
Check it out sometime heaps of modified RS's on there.

Here's a couple of pics. Enjoy

Good looking car. It's a Legacy on this side of the earth. Are those 17" or 16" wheels on the black car? How did you lower it?Regards,

BTW, Not all of us agree with GW Bush.

They dont call them RS's here :( Although i wish they would have. They are just known as Legacy Turbo's. The sedans are sometimes reffered to as Sport Sedans.

I love those wheels. Thats what im thinking of doing with my Legacy.

Brian, those wheels look like RS wheels, just painted black. There should be a few sets of those around that you could pick up. Look for a 98 or newer RS owner who has recently upgraded to 17 or 18 inch wheels.

Yeah, ive been searching Corky :( But i cant find any. I'd love to get my hands on a set and have them powdercoated black. I dont really care for the silver or gold.

Hi guys, and thanks for the warm welcome.

MY rims are from a 98 model Impreza WRX, they were silver and I had them painted in 2 pack black. They are also 16in in diameter.

My car has also been lowered with a set of Kings Springs about 2 inches all round. King Springs are made here locally in Oz and don't cost an arm and a leg but do a great job in getting the car to handle better.

Nice ride.....I almost bought a RS Turbo back in 1993, but insurance would have been a killer :(
