The guy at the tint shop was a man of few words, so, I honestly have no idea..lol. It has a five year warranty and it was 110 bucks cheaper than my cheapest estimate ($160 total) so I figured why not...

$160 is a heck of a deal.

Wish we had shops here that can do tint for that cheap.

Agreed. I was blown away. I had to wait about 3 hours but that's a fair trade off.

I would've washed it, we finally got warmer weather, but since I am still debating if I should hold off or not. Waiting to see if KIA adds the missing features and the interior color combo I want (red with white exterior).

On the Legacy GT forums, threads like this are active with people discussing the latest things they've done without the need of a separate thread. I have found it to be an interesting way to figure out some cool mods and to see what other members are up to.

I'll start:

Today I installed my K & N intakes. It took about 2 hours. I figured out the hard way that there are 4 different size clamps included. Pro tip: use silicone spray lube to make the rubber couplers slide on and move freely. The smaller breather fitting is too small diameter and needed a wrap of silicone sealing tape to make the hose spring clamps seal.

Now the car sounds like a rabbid fire sneezing dragon. It's quite substantial sounding under moderate throttle in particular.

Yes, yes I did. That's the side with the PCV vent tubes. Definitely going to look at a catch can on that...

Are you doing the front bumper and half-hood?

Installed my new badges front and rear.

An automotive trim plastic tool set along with wedges came in handy. Goo Gone and plastic razor blades are a necessity.

Pro tip: mark out the center line and edge of the OEM badge on painters tape with a pencil and cover it with a second layer and expose it only when ready to place the new badge. There is no indent in the trunk or bumper cover to guide the placement and this helps a tonne.

[MENTION=633]brandon.mol[/MENTION] do the Canadian models not have the holes underneath the emblem in the rear? That turned out great.
