My '01 Legacy Wagon might not be sexy, but it gets me to sexy places.

Welcome to Blade Forums! I don't own a Subaru myself but almost bought an Impreza Outback years ago. I agree that it's hard to go back to non AWD after owning an AWD ride. We have an Audi A4 Quattro that my wife's pretty much taken over so I had to buy another car to get around and got a Mazda3 Sport hatchback.
I'm thinking again of getting a Subaru though. I shoot a lot of them at racing and carshow events I cover. My buddies who run a local import drag racing series also own a shop that used to build the STis for the Canadian Rally Team and now build them for another team.
Here are a couple shots of the STi:
Here's my A4 on summer rims:
I have to look for the most recent pics I took of the Mazda3 after I lowered and tinted it. I can't remember which camera it's on or if I even downloaded the pics to my PC yet!
BTW, I just read Consumer Report's auto issue for 2011. It ranks Subaru #2 (just behind Honda) in workmanship/dependibility over all manufacturers.
Wow... that STi is bad ass!!!
Sweet ride. Fun cars for sure.
When I was much younger, I always wanted one of these:
Then I decided I wanted one of these:
I ended up with something similar to this instead:
Except mine was much more beat up, rusty, dented, and a horrible teal color.
I miss that car.
I wanted to bump this thread with an update... I sold the WRX and picked up a 2008 Legacy GT Spec.B! I drove 10 hours to VA to pick it up and it only had 7,600 original miles! Has a few aftermarket goodies on it as well. Most of them were still brand new in the boxes, not installed. The owner bought the car new at the end of '09, drove it for a little while, ordered a bunch of parts for it... then got shipped out to Iraq. He didn't want a car payment anymore so he gave his wife power of attorney and had her sell it for him. I feel kinda bad buying the car without ever meeting the guy because we spoke on the phone and emailed each other back and forth for a couple of months to work out all the details.
Anyway, these are the pics of it the day I picked it up...
-Magnaflow catback exhaust
-CNT catted downpipe
-RalliTek front and rear sway bars
-RalliTek end links
-Kartboy short shifter
-AVO panel filter
-STi pitch mount
-Perrin afta-MAF tube
-IPR top mount intercooler
For those of you that don't know, the Spec.B comes with Bilstein suspension, a luxurious leather and Alcantara interior and best of all... STi 6 speed transmission. The 6th gear is a bit taller than the STi models which allows me to average 28-32 mpg. Not a bad "grown up" car, huh? lol
Nice ride! A change is as good as a holiday!
Is this a 2.0ltr or 2.5 Legacy GT?
Very nice Legacy, I drive a 10 STI. I feel at home with all the Subis
Thats a nice car. My Son has a 1998 Legacy Outback wagon. My Wife has a 2012 Forester and my Mom has a 1995 Legacy Sedan. They are all nice, although I don't really like the Forester for some reason. It doesn't seem to handle as crisply as the "car" Subbies.
Here's mine... most of what used to be knife money now goes into making it less slow
nice, i used to drive an '02 WRX. these days i've got a 2010 Volvo s40 T5 R-Design. i loved the subaru dearly but the volvo is only a hair slower and so much more posh.
