    Back Story: I'm currently driving a 2002 Subaru Legacy Touring Wagon GT-B Limited II Automatic since February when I pick up the vehicle with only 80,900 km's at the time, very fun to drive especially in the snow, after months of driving I wanted to get back into driving stick again and decided to look for another Subaru Legacy with a 5 speed and I found this one:

    Car has about 109,000 k km's, is in excellent condition, the car was at auction for the very first time with a auction grade 3 due to paint faded on bonnet (P1) and mostly the roof (P3) but so far no clear coat damage with common small dents and scratches expect for the rear trunk door having the big dent but mostly covers by the licence plate.

    Interior is in good shape with a factory boost gauge and a over all front and rear lip kit on the car and one of my favorite Metallic Blue colors. I did run a (carvx.jp) car fax's and the car came up with no past problems.

    Congrats on clean nice looking wagon! I bet it rarely comes with a stick...

    The question, why do you need an "anti theft kill switch" ? How much could it be?

    Thanks man, yeah you'll only see about 5-10 a week mostly 70% of non-E-Tune's that are manual's in auction for the BH5 but I got lucky grabbing this one for a great price, way under my landing price. My main reason for a kill switch is so that my car doesn't get stolen so easy even with a 5 speed, I have one in my current Subaru Legacy Touring Wagon Limited II that works great but I do have plans to relocate the button that no one will think twice about once I received the new Subaru Legacy ;)

    Since this page will be about my new Subaru build I will show you my current Subaru Legacy Wagon

    I got the car in Sept of 2019 days before I started my 12 weeks of basic training, don't ask me why I did that but I did haha, the car landed in Vancouver at the end of November around the time I graduated and had the car shipped to the Edmonton to where JDMConnections was located because I knew 2 weeks prior from graduation I was going to be station 2 hours away from Edmonton which was perfect, it took me till February of 2020 to pick up the vehicle when the car pass out of province inspection.

    My experience driving RHD for the first time, I got super comfortable driving it after not even 10 mins when I drove to a gas station, I heard some people that it takes either a few minutes, hours, days, or might not like driving RHD at all, everyone's different and it might take others a while to get used to driving RHD, but for me it only took not even 10 minutes and was surprise that was the case for me.

    Once I brought the car back to the base, I did a BOSS head unit set with a back up camera, I install a anti theft kill switch, and I install a front dashcam w/hard wire kit to the fuse box. I was going to get a sti genome exhaust but I noticed I already have one on the car when I got to the gas station, it came with a sti genome strut bar and pedals.

    That's all I did to the vehicle atm, probably will do a few more things before my blue Subaru Legacy is ready for pick up and then this car will be up for sale.

    I guess you really like this platform if you bought a replacement just to have the manual.

    Good looking cars :)

    UPDATE: I received some pictures of the car at the shop. Car Arrived on July 20th, It's in Edmonton now, it passed oop with out any problems.

    Only needed new tires, battery, drl, and a new alternator because the battery light was on and killed the new battery.

    I've noticed in the drivers side that appears to be a turbo timer which is a plus to have. I believe the car has a STI Genome exhaust which is a bonus.
