No one has it yet I don't think it's just a promotion thingy since Subaru Canada website already has a flash site for the new Legacy as well.

Last month when I brought in my Legacy for service at DD the salesman told me that they are getting trained on the New Legacy during the Vancouver Auto Show.

So I don't think the car is actually on their lots just yet, but maybe they're at the dock.

The ad says "coming soon". They don't even have the price list yet.

Last time I went to Richmond Subaru, I saw a white STi with roof scoop, ne1?

Yea TeamFRD is me. Anyway, I've seen tons of 04' style Legacy off the rail awhile ago. Yup I guess they wanna sell as many as they can before they release the new Legacy. And I think the last bunch arrived awhile ago.

Haven't seen the "for show" MY05 Legacy yet. When is the autoshow btw?

Hmm sounds like the 3.0R Spec B would be a better fit for the bill. I don't understand what the hell SOA is doing. Why would they put a 2.5 turbo into a model level that usually have a 3.0 NA (ie Accord, and Camry)? So are we to expect a 3.0 turbo for the STi? So far the 3.0R Spec B looks like a very good car, nice suspenison set up with decent power and no turbo lag. And if SOA start coming out with STi Forestor but no STi WRX wagon I be really upset.

PS: That 3 PS2 processor moving platform sim machine will be at Vancouver Auto Show, 2 bucks a ride and all going to charity. Wonder if they will sell some of them.

You got to be kidding me. 12mpg that's only a bit better than a 360 Modena and Lambo Gallardo. Both are rated at 10mpg in city. Hell even the GT40 got 14mpg EPA rating for city.

if u search over there you'll see several fuel economy posts/complaints... maybe someone did their math wrong but it seems unanimous(sp?) that the mileage sucks ... but some of of it can be blamed for being as aerodynamic as a brick and short gearing?
