Kept under wraps until today, Subaru used the 2009 SEMA Show to showcase the tuning possibilities for the new 2010 Legacy with a VIP-styled Legacy 2.5GT. In true Japanese VIP fashion, this Legacy 2.5GT gets a deep purple paint job, an air ride suspension and a set of 20-inch wheels wit a 4-inch lip.

To fit the big wheels, the car's fenders had to be flared wit other modifications including a long list of JDM Legacy parts like a hood, bumper, grille as well as HID headlights and fog lights. The car also gets a roof spoiler as well as a rear decklid spoiler. In order to fit the smooth JDM hood, the Legacy's top-mount intercooler was replaced with a Mishimoto front mount intercooler.

Factor Subaru Performance Tuning (SPT) parts were also included like an oil cap and battery tie-down.

The cabin gets a complete diamond-stitch leather treatment. The rear seat area was changed significantly with two bucket seats, two LCD screens and a huge audio setup.

But not in my driveway! It's the wheels :puke:

Ghey. Fail.

It doesn't work, VIP cars are huge like the Lexus. This looks like a ricer wannabee, like a VIP Camry. I can just see the kind of crowd this will attract. Here's the typical NASIOC posts:

- How do I get -25 degrees camber on my VIP Legacy ?

- My Lambo doors are stuck up. U know why ?

- Which screens shud I get , 19 or 21 inch ?

Yup, the wheels scream DUB. Well, the interior kills it too. Still needs to be an LS460 though.

Then again there is the old standby............."There's an *** for every seat"!

The funny thing about the new larger body is that even 18" wheels looks small. The black one is very nice, but still needs larger wheels to look "right".
And the wagon, YES please!

They're all just so damn BIG.
