What are some of the most common mods done on OBs?

I want to do some, but I'm not sure where to start. Clearly most of the focus in the scooby community is on the WRX/Impreza mods, but some of those aren't exactly practical for an OB.

Any recommendations for a few good, easy mods to start with?

I'm talking: filters/intakes/new bulbs/lamps...

I should have the bulbs any day now.
Peaty those look very interesting, I may be interested in some also. ***Hmmm... smells like a new group buy soon :D***
Tell us how those are whenever you get them in, thanks!

Just got home from a long day at work :( But the bulbs are here :) I haven't even opened the box yet but after I take some pics I'll post that I find. Most likely tomorrow.

I've read about underdrive pulleys on outbacks. Might be a mod you'd be interested in. Not sure how they work but someone on this site may know more.

The dealer I bought my Outback from had another used Outback that had one on it. They said it was a little "peppier" than the Outback I bought. It also had a huge dent in the door so I didn't bother driving it.:D

Peaty:

Those lights sound really cool. Can't wait for some pictures!

Pics of the bulbs, looks pretty simple to modify to fit. The wife's OB is at the airport so it won't be till next week I get to give them a try. This is strictly the High beam BTW. No application for the low beams at this time in HIR:

FMGreen, it depends on what you want out of the car. What are you looking to improve and what is your driving style? Are you looking to improve power, handling, just the "bling" factor, exhaust tone? There's lots you can do it just depends on what you want out of it. Most common mods are applicable to the OBS, or should be.
