    Back in a Scooby

    After having to sell my modified 03 wrx I was stuck driving a boring automatic 320d. After a few months of that it was time to go back to a petrol and more specifically a Subaru. So here I am back with a 2003 legacy gt. It has already been cosmetically modified which is fine with me. Also had a bit of service history which is very nice to see!

    Cheers fellas got a good deal on it too! Definitely as much fun to drive as the wrx, and a bit nicer inside for longer spins! Full leather interior too, are they all wired for heated seats? Switch is installed but don't think seats are connected. Any recommendations for a radio band adapter?
    Currently has one but only ranges from ~75-85 and the numbers are all different as a result

    Them range adaptors don’t be great..
    I often thought about trying to get the radio from a non Jap and try swapping parts. Never got around to it but could work!

    Yeah best of both worlds! Hopefully it'll show it's face around.
    Quick picture of the dash, actually really like this blitz boost gauge, the light is quite dim so doesn't blind at night which is nice The sweeping dash never gets old either

    You'll have to try come to the next club outing with that man. We'll see if we can get another Limerick / Kerry thing going again. I'd love to see it in the flesh 👍
