Hiya everyone, hope today is treating you well.
As I prepare for Subiefest this year in FL, I have a laundry list of things I need to do to m Subie. Some are big things, like a set of coil overs and nice wheels to match, while some are small things like finding the right headlight assembly to install. I am starting this thread to ask yall if you have ay suggestions for stuff like this and where to find it. Im trying to lower it, give it a jdm look and feel, and make it sound a little better without being a "2 am civic". I know that Godspeed Project makes good coilovers for a pretty good price, so thats where Im leaning. I am,, however, having trouble finding a site that carries small jdm parts like grilles, headlights, things like that, JSPEC Auto has awesome stuff, but mostly STI parts for WRX, Forester, etc. If you guys know anyone whos acheived a similar look with theirs, or have any info on where to source these things online, I'd appreciate it. I should be checking this thread close to daily for a while so if you'd like any more info on what Im looking for, feel free to look.
Thank you guys!
PS, as the name says, the ob in question is my 2007 gen three 2.5 litre naturally aspirated. Ive loved it as a daily driver with no real serious mods, but again, with subiefest around the corner and me being confident that I will never get rid of this car (call it sentimental), Im more than ready to make it my show car... or as close to a show car as I can get with a gen three outback basic LOL.

I'd cruise around jauce.com and search for "BP legacy". The JDM world got plenty of cool stuff we didn't.

While it's essentially a 3rd party auction site, it can help you find places/things that are otherwise not easy to find.

Awesome man, thanks! Auction sites may be best for me, being that I'm on a tight budget and am looking for niche products that may not have a super high demand. Sorry for the late response lmao, but I appreciate your help man!. Ill post an update on what i find, using those two resources.

So I just replied to you guys, but very shortly after went and checked around with your suggestions... Happy to say that I found some super cool goodies, including some spec b control arms that can replace my stock 2007 control arms that have seen some abuse lol. Thanks again guys, this is why I joined this site... lots of people who love the boxer rumble who can give me info on things I dont know, and with whom I can share my limited knowledge too. Cheers you guys!

No worries! Be sure to look around on our ebay too for Spec B stuff. Every now and then, the rear control arm setup can be had for $350 or so, plus we got OE replacements for the front via aftermarket companies (like Mevotech).

Awesome man! Thanks again!
Also, what all have you done (aesthetically) so far to your xt? Im still having a little bit of trouble in that area, in terms of finding a good look to go with that has an extensive enough range of products, if that makes sense.

Not much aesthetically, Gen 1 XV wheels, blacked-out grille, 04 STI door decals. Got the STI door sills and power folding mirrors ready to go-in.

I've been pondering the Kouki extended rear wing, but hard to spend the money for a chance I might not like it. I'd LOVE some of the "Tuned by STI" seats, but they usually go for stupid money when they come up.

Yea the seats are something I've been looking to do as well, but as you said, they are expensive af lol... out of my budget fasho. Full disclosure: I'm a 17 yro enthusiast, so that should show you my budget range, even working two jobs lol. Now, I know this may sound goofy, but I found someone parting out a nice Baja, and the seats are pretty much pristine. I kinda wanna put them in my ob, as they are leather, same year, heated just like mine, and super close in color. That wing does kinda sound killer tbh. I may have to look into that for mine, The badging is def something I want to do, but I dont want to go too crazy because an NA h4 ob driven by a teenager with too much false badging will catch some flack id assume haha.
