●New wheels for the Legacy

Well with the cold winter season over the Legacys snow tyres (which are run on the stock 17" 5-spoke wheels) have been put in storage. I picked up a used set of 10-spoke Spec B. 18" wheels from Yahoo Auctions clad in almost new Falken something or other tyres. Certainly makes a change on the handling side of things, not to mention tyre noise is considerably reduced! I really like the look of these stock Subaru wheels, but I'm contemplating having them sprayed in a dark silver for a meaner look. Next for the Legacy will be suspension and brakes. I will keep you updated on how that goes.

A few pictures.

Station Wagons are great aren't they!

Getting them fitted at the local tyre place. The poor guy doing the work looked like he was 130 years old or something!

And with the new wheels fitted. Yes I know, it rides too high!

●V36 Skyline 370GT Coupe

Spotted this at Roppongi Midtown the other day. It's a very nice looking car and looks great in this deep red. The 3.7 L V6 promeses to be even better than the already great 3.5 L VQ35HR whcih I loved in the V36 saloon. Can't wait to get behind the wheel of this.

Some crappy pictures taken with my phone:
