Just got mine tuned with a GrimmSpeed ebcs and it feels amazing. Mine has a 6 speed and it really makes you shift a lot.

I HAD an 05 then 07 then 06 WRX's. Both the 06 and 07 had built transmissions cause the stockers took a **** as soon as I went over 300whp

Loved em all. Will get another one next year. I'd love an LGT but may just pick up a '10 rex hatch so I can take the dog places.

+1. Love me some Legacy. I'd kill for one as a daily, but I can't even afford to cheaply boost my car, so no way I can afford a second car right now.

Car sounds great, and looks great. To me a Miata without the trunk spoiler looks weird. I wouldn't give mine up for anything (except a built 1.9l and an Absurdflow setup).
