I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy, It's got the 2.2. I have made slight modifications to it. New Outback front bumper and grille, swapped old one piece headlights for two piece headlights, 15 inch rims from another legacy which I took off my stock 14 inch rims for, A few painted engine parts. It is a 5 speed which is my preference for any Subaru. I'm in a Subaru Car Club in my area. If you live in the Tri-State you're welcome to join. At the moment we have around 30 members, always looking to add more, we get an awesome parts discount from O'Reilly Auto Parts through our club account. My car has been through it all, a total of 260,000 miles, and the engine is still in great running condition. Subie guy for life I'd say.

NICE!
Welcome!

 

I too have a 95 Legacy (although quite modified).  I've heard of the 2-poc OB headlight swap and just got some 98 headlights (still need to source the turn signals). 

Is it just a cut and splice (matching colored wires) job, then they just bolt on?

Any tips/tricks or photos of before/after?

 

thanks and show off that rig! :)

Please clutter away! And I'll put pics up soon. I was actually putting my front bumber on while my friend put the lights on. He spliced them though because as you know, it's different for a 2 piece system. I'm thinking it's color to color

They bolted on nicely for me, but since I changes the front bumper I had to drill new wholes for the lights to sit on the bumper right.

are you talking about the Tri Cities Subaru Club? say hi to ivan for me. I had him remove me from that club cause some of the guys were bullying me. yes, bullying. I'd stay away from that club cause the STI owners are mean.  Oh, and if the STI guys do start giving you crap about something tell Ivan, he'll kick their butts xD  Ivan and Dillon are a couple of the cool guys on there.

I had to cut my bumper support in the middle for the larger grill, still running fog light-less.  But all in all it was a painless process.  I'm no stranger to modding stuff to fit lol.

 

Still running crap rump roast tires, but I've got roughly an extra inch since this pic with new struts

TRI-STATE, like wisconsin, iowa, illinois. I don't think I'd lift if I do anything with my suspension, but getting things to fit has definatly been one of my more timelier past times. xP

I really like the car, body is in great condition. I wish my rust spots werent there, I'm definitely going to me doing some grinding this Spring/Summer to remove and replace rusted and pitted out spots. That's also why I'm happy I switched to the Outback front bumper, because then I can put fog lights in pretty soon when I find a set I like in my price range. Is that a 5-speed??

I love that silver, had a 98 in the family a few years back that same color. I wish mine was a 5 speed like yours though.

5-speeds are definitely where it's at. I do like the color but after I fix the rust I think I'm repainting it a different color if I still have it. I might be a getting a new car soon (still a Subie of course.) But I'm looking for something a bit different, little faster and sleeker looking.
