After seeing a few very nice examples of Gen2 wagons a few yrs ago on RSLC, I knew that was what I had to have!
So in a nutshell; Bumpty moved to NZ for 2 yrs, bought this Legacy and imported it back to AUS in 2012.

I bought it with -
RFRB rear spoiler.
Front and rear strut braces.
Apexi boost guage.
and, STI pedals.

Needs more -
17" Enkei STI rims
Project Mu wheel nuts when rims arrive
Anti lift kit when control arms arrive
Cbe when the above arrives

..and planned on keeping it this way until I imported it back to AUS, hoping to make the import easier.
None the less, the paperwork was a nightmare! And I would never import again :)


Currently the Leggy has been off the road for 6months, blew a head gasket and so I thought it would be a good time get the mod stick out and slap it about! The motivation for beginning this thread has come about from the amount of time the car has been off the road and it looks like it could quite easily be off the road for another couple of months... This thread is aimed at drawing encouragement haha

I lost most of my pics, so here is a couple of it in NZ

Very nice!

Nice. .
Where are you located now?

I have often contemplated the import process but people always talk about what a head f it is. .
Would be keen to hear about that side of the story some day;)

Logistically, importing wasn't too bad.
I had it professionally detailed to clear customs and drove it straight to the wharf, no worries there.
It arrived on a truck to my door in AUS a month or two later.

Paperwork in NZ, was a head F because everyone on the ground would tell me something different, depending on what department they were from.
But at the end of the day if,
1#you hold a license in that country
2#own the vehicle for at least a year (roadworthy & registered)
3#live in the country for the whole (most of the time) time of ownership
4#and the car is garaged at your place

its not tooooo bad, you just have to prove all the above.

The biggest surprise and head F was registering it, though it seems every state is different.
In tas, I had to spend close to $650 having baby anchorage points and seat belts installed from a (wrecked !WHAT!) Liberty, engineered..

As of last weekend the donk is back in!
But stupidly, we left off the TMIC and both turbos. Secondary is in place now though.. Light at the end of the tunnel!

So while the engine was out,
It was treated to a port and polish / cylinders rebored .020
APR +625 head studs
APR case bolts
APR rod bolts
06 STI rods
ACL forged race pistons
ACL race bearings
Extreme OEM replacement clutch
Extreme lightened flywheel
VF26/27 turbos (ported)

To black out headlights or not?
Maybe just smoke or tint, thoughts?

No orange looks much better. Did you spray tint the lense?

He's the king of the beans.

Leave them stock. Always liked these headlights the way they are.
