I have an 03 legacy L sedan that I'm planning on doing a full drivetrain swap with an 04 STI. Any pointers?

Had a wrx and 2 sti's. It was time for something a little more comfortable. Still got a spec b so I have a 6 speed, let the modding begin.

Bought a 97 ob wagon in 97, needed room for kids, safety of awd living in the country, extra height for snow. At 400,000 kms still going strong. I bought a second one and swapped in a jdm turbo. And the bonus, legacys are almost invisible at a couple kph over the speed limit. In this 4 subaru family, legacys are for the parents and the impreza's are driven by the kids.

I wanted AWD and a stock turbo, and I'm almost 30 so I wanted something a little more refined as well wrx and evo looked a little bit too boy racer IMO. Couldn't be happier with my LGT

Great car to learn stick on. Awd amazing in New England. Cool looks and great reliability. Japanese cars are by far the best.

Hmmm....missed this before.

I've owned quite a few cars over the years:
RWD 4cyl
RWD 8cyl
FWD 4cyl turbo
Then I bought a new 4cyl 1989 Toyota Camry AllTrac. After other drivetrain set-ups, I loved the AWD.
I'm a skier, so good driving in snow/poor roads was a plus. I also fly sailplanes and the little 4cyl was not enough "Ummph". Owned the car for 9 years ~125K miles and it was getting tired.

Got a deal on my 1998 LGT wagon (knew a Subaru employee, got a "employee discount").
I picked the Legacy since I could put 4-5 adults in it compared to a 1998 Impreza.
I liked the 2.5L, had the grunt to pull a 1400lb sailplane trailer.
The wagon's longer length helped with trailer towing at speed on the highway, plus it was amazing the amount of stuff you could cram in there.

Being a silver Legacy wagon keeps it "sorta low" on the Police eyeball scan. LOL
After doing upgrades, it handles rather well, deals with all weather and can surprise many people in the twisties.

I still own it, although it was sorta off the road a number of years, but it's back again.
If I were to replace it, I would love a 05 or 06 Legacy GT wagon, but prices are a bit high for my budget right now. I love my body style as well as the 05+, the rest are sorta "OK/bland" to me.

Someone at work had a 2001 lgt. I was in the process of selling my Brighton (which sealed the deal for me with subarus and awd here in nh). The 01 lgt was speaking to me everytime I saw it. The women who owns it wouldn't sell it to me. I started hunting and CL came through!! Found an 02 5 speed for a great price!! I'm in love with this car!! My next car will be a turbo lgt.

I love the luxury while still being sporty!! She's treated me great!!

Never really gave these cars much thought until my parents got their '91 L Wagon (which I have since inherited); but once I took a ride in it I was really impressed.
1. It has power to spare, have a hard time keeping the speed limit when it just wants to go fast.
2.The ride and handling is superb, very nimble.
3.These things seem to last forever no matter what you throw at it.
4. It is an excellent car for it's value. I like how Subaru put everything that was optional or not available in other cars on the market at the time(4-wheel disc brakes, power windows/locks, 4-speed automatic, etc.). It still does have a decent resale value from what I've seen.
Now I love these cars and keeping mine forever!

1. It has power to spare, have a hard time driving around at or near the speed limit. it just wants to go so much faster.

Having owned several turbo subarus most of them 90's Legacys this is a very true statement

2.The ride and handling is superb, very nimble.

With the stock suspension setup its great with all the goodies its crazy fun!

3.These things seem to last forever no matter what you throw at it.

Both of my daily drivers have more than 166,000 miles too bad the bodies rust out after 18 years lol. Soon it will be time to find another shell for my EJ22T.

4. It is an excellent car for it's value. I like how Subaru put everything that was optional or not available in other cars on the market at the time(4-wheel disc brakes, power windows/locks, 4-speed automatic, etc.). It still does have a decent resale value from what I've seen.

I got one for as little as $200 and as much as $4300. Never got a bad one I've had 9 so far still have 3

I love these cars and keeping mine might never buy a new car again!

I promise to keep my 90 RS-RA until I die then it goes to a proper museum.

Good price, AWD, and the boxer engine.. Nice car will hold it's own on the road, and enough speed to get you out of other drivers trouble..

For me I bought my 97 OBW in 2005 with 80k miles for $8000. I knew I wanted a manual trans Subaru for certain and I found this car after a handful of months searching. I fell in love with Subaru after playing to much Gran Turismo on the playstation as a child and watching WRC. For me it comes down to reliability, practicality, quality, traction and efficiency. Subaru is a perfect blend of form and function that is from difficult to impossible to find in other cars.

Wanted a roomy AWD with rally performance, Audi was too expensive, loving the legacy. I just picked up my 3.6i 2013 and I've figured out all of the functions except how to reset the trip odometer. Driving me nuts i like to calculate my own MPG, I think it has something to do with the "I" button. Anyone know?

I went for one cuz they are different and more luxurious. For every 1 legacy their are probably 100 WRX and STI's. It's just a nice daily driver i figured i could do a dew little things to and change the look and still have something that kicks some butt and sounds good. I have another car I'm more serious with that i drive on the weekends and take to the track though.

well the craze started with gran turismo 4, with the 2.0 spec b gt (i think thats what it's called) and my unconditional love for pre-2000 cars. i was living in pennsylvania so the subaru was an awesome car to have, and every 06 legacy i saw driving around made me say: damn there goes my dream car. so after buying a junky 93 gs300 and blowing a head gasket twice i gave up my dream of making that gs look beautiful and bought me a 93 legacy sw 25th anniversary (5spd) for 500 because the rear wheels are locked, and it's actually a lot more than i expected. the engine sounds good, the fact that the drivetrain layout leaves the transmission midship is awesome in my book (i hate ff cars coming from first starting with a 2jz) and i'm hoping to get this baby running real soon

because I have owned 4 different Audi's (need awd in Alaska) and none of them have gone a few months without breaking down. Hoping a legacy is a better car. It should be as everyone here drives them. Now just to sell the stupid Audi and get my 08 or 09 legacy sedan
