The work it needs done is there is no E-brake, Horn, and the biggest issue is that i need new rear calipers because they are really rusted and bent and they make a aweful sound when moving. The suspension isint the greatest either but i know it could be great. I can't wait to fix it up.
Good reason get some supertones and a H6 rear upgrade.

nice start man, looks pretty clean. good set of early mods. I would recommend the supertones too...even though I don't have them yet myself on my RS, I want them too. but thats more like a want thing for me, so that can wait, but you need a horn and I would just got straight to the supertones(not only is it a loud horn, its looks sick too, haha). good luck!

Anyone???
go to a junkyard and take the rear rotors and caliper brackets off of a 2000 to 2003 legacy or legacy outback.

in your case you might want to get the calipers as well.

its super easy to do, i did it. the BEST way to do it would be to order new rotors, like powerslots/brembo blanks,ect. order new pads, i hear hawk pads are pretty good, and some stainless steel lines, like goodridge or so. get it all put together and bleed the brakes with some better fluid, like some motul 600 or so.

hope this helps.

Welcome to the club. You're gonna love that RS. I've got an '00 BRP RS too. The debadge + sedan spoiler actually looks really nice. Smart move upgrading the brakes to H6. Keep her clean and avoid any temptation to rice it out.

Thanks a lot man!!! Yea i love BRP. Defitnely not going to rice it out. I swear there is 100000000 Honda's that live by me and they are all sound so bad expect one. Actually there was one today that came out of our school that sounded so baddd, it sounded like a freakin loud R.C. car. Of course it had the the ricey body kit that was a different color and like half sanded off lolololo!!

That link goes to a page that says " H6 Rear Brake Upgrade, Brackets ONLY " so I think you'll need to source some calipers still. They're just going to be stock RS rear calipers so maybe you can find some off of a member here. I'd offer you mine but they've got 110k on them and aren't very pretty looking. Hopefully there's someone outside of the saltbelt that did a brake upgrade and had clean stockers lying around. GL

hmmm....I think yellow tint/film on the fog lights would look sick...haven't done that yet myself either, but I've got yellow bulbs and they looks sick during the night. Idk how much it'll cost but I assume that its not that much, plus it'll add cool factor to your RS.

YESSSSSSSSSSS haha, thats excately what i was thinking. Becuase they have these blue fog bulbs in them now that really shine like whiteish and i have hyperwhite HID headlights and i was thinking get like those yellow rocker blocker things that make the actuall fog light housing yellow and get a yellow bulb too. I know where your coming from bro.
