Hi guys, 

Just purchased the Liberty for wife. 

What gentle mods can we apply to this slightly boring vehicle?

Welllll, define "gentle"?

You can lift it, put bigger tires on it, engine swap it, lower it, put a kickin' stereo in it, there are lots of mods to be found on here :)

Feel free to browse the forums and search a little and maybe you'll get a little inspiration.

The only real  limits are your imagination, your budget and your wife's willingness to let you go so far...

Chip Tuning + progressive suspension would be the start and the mrs will not notice to much of it. 

Power + Handling would be the gentlest mods. 

Alpine + Infinity speakers might go in next and this I cannot hide from the financier. 

 

Does any have any experience with V-Tech?

My one is a diesel and they show +28 power +67 Torque on the Outback which I think is the same thing like Ozzie Liberty aye..

Unfortunately we didn't get the diesel here in the US, so I have almost no knowledge on the engine itself, sorry.

And I know pretty much nothing about the management system Subaru has running on it, so V-Tech is out of my realm of expertise as well.

You may inquire of Phizinza and see if he has any useful knowledge for you, as I believe he is still down under :)

 

Our rally/race experts may be better at your suspension mod questions. Numchux, Suberdave, Turbone all have lots of knowledge with those sorts of goodies :)

 

As for stereo stuff, (something I actually know about) I highly recommend finding the right setup for the music you/your wife listens to.

The different materials and response of each component can make a huge difference in your listening experience.

So, what kind of music do you listen to?

I think I will give V-Tech a go. 

My wife likes sad music haha but I love my trance and classical music, bit of a weird mix. 

We got a subaru nav in this one with an old DVD in it. The nav is not to bad. 

Does anyone know where to get the new DVD from?
