Is there any one on this board that is aware of companies that make tasteful bodykits for the legacy sedan. I am having trouble finding one. I need a bumper that I could fit a large fmic. I want to get rid of the black and chrome and also a side skirt. thanks, kelley.

There really isn't anything out there. There may be some odds & ends floating around in Japan.....but between the shipping and cost of the parts.....I don't think it's worth it.

I have seen a bc legacy with a fmic on stock bumper. it can be done with just a little cutting to the bumper beam and bumper. custom piping of course would have to be made up. I don't think you would be able to get rid of the black trim unless you got a new front and rear bumper. then you would have to have the side molding shaved. all that would cost a fortune. I would just try and search some japanese sites and see if they have anything. :o

I honestly don't know of any vendors that have anything. One of the manufacturers is hippo sleak or something like that......uumm....The japanese Hyper Rev mag. may have some info. I know some past issues had pics of certain kits. But I'm not sure if you can get them.

Dave may know.

Very little exists for the 1st gen legacy. Supposedly things do exist in Japan, I have only seen an aftermarket front bumper lip fitted to a Japanese Turbo sedan. BUT, in Austrailia and Europe legacy turbo's (Liberty RS's in Austrailia) came with plastic side skirts and rear bumper lips stock from the factory (along with an improved front bumper that luckily we here in north America got too). Both can be purchased from Wreckers in both areas. I got quoted 80 Austrailian dollars for each side
skirt and 120 for the rear bumper lip. The rear bumper lips will bolt onto the bumper, whereas the side skirts will have to taped on or clip holes cut into the rocker panels on our US/Canadian Spec Legacys.

Hope this helps,
Mark

No problem. I feel lucky being the first to see it as it's one of the best examples of the BC Legacy.
