Legacy The New Legacy B4 2.0R

I got my new 2.0R last night. It's one sweet ass car. My first Subaru and I gotta say I love it. Haven't pushed her to the limits so not sure what it can do. It's got a 2.0 that produces 195hp (? not 100% on this as some places say it's 180).

Smooth as hell at speeds got a ticket doing 140 last night, I didn't oven notice it until the ******* pulled me over.

Also, get a Escort Passport 8500 Radar Detector.

They use the radar guns here. by the time I detect it it would be too late.

I'm definatly gonna take more pictures of the car. It's sweet as hell. Not sure if you guys are getting the wiper, but I can tell you for sure you're not getting this model.

You may need to get a good radar detector.

So how does it drive compare to other cars u had?

The other car's I've had don't really compare. The only other car that I've had that I can compare it to is my 99 Grand Am. The Legacy is far superior. It's so nimble and easy to drive. It has a stiffer suspension so I feel the bumps in the road a little more but handling is _much_ better. Far less sway, much better handling. On a whole the car is much more responsive and I'm sure that it's much faster, although I haven't gunned it yet, and I probably won't for a while either.

I haven't really noticed the difference between AWD and the FWD yet. That is for two reasons,
a) again I haven't gunned it yet.
b) I haven't driven on any rough surfaces yet.

The interior is very clean, simple and smooth. I'm not to sure if I like it that much more than the GA yet. I'm not really used to it. There are only two things about the GA that I like more,
a) The gauge cluster. It looked like to big round tits. I liked looking at that when I drove.
b) The chairs in the GA where much more comfortable. The subaru has posterpedic seats in it and I'm a sloutcher. After a while I really feel a pain in my back.

I would still consider getting a radar detector! The police clocking traffic ahead of you could result in your detector going off and saving your bacon! Cheap as they are, they are a worthwhile investment!

I like the GT. The 2.0GT would be sweet, however, the price of cars in my part of the world is rather expensive. A GT would cost around $90,000CDN. Although the GT is a very nice car, I don't think it is Porsche nice.

tried that. the site is quite self explanatory. i'm not blind...

hmm.. i did a playing around w/ babelfish a bit. i found excite.co.jp/world/text to work better.

the translation engine doesn't do much of a good job~ and since grammar rules are different as well, it's much better to try to translate snippets of text that i dont understand rather than attempt to do the whole URL.

i found it to be the same with korean to english translation. sucks great ass. it's almost useless.. hah.

besides, wasn't the whole point of you directing me to the japanese site the pictures? i just wanted to see interior pics of someones actual car. (ie. non-commercial pics).. i realize there isn't much difference. so i guess i'll just wait till it comes out in the US.

OMG. 90k canadian

is approx. 67,494.86 USD ... why is this? is it because of taxes imposed on imports or because of the tight space on an island nation...??
