Default Is the legacy B4 ever going to come to the US?

Cause I'd buy one. And simply for that reason alone, it should be brought to the US. It is das pimp.

500 of 'em being sold right now in the US as per current issue of Car and Driver.

They liked the car, but price point is getting into Audi, BMW territory and it can't compete there.

If I remember right, B4 just refers to a Legacy Sedan, which we've had here for a while. Maybe you're talking about a Blitzen B4:



The 500 models being sold as per Car and Drivers article I think refers to the Legacy Spec B, which is a Legacy Limited Sedan with read leather seats, and a special exterior color.

I don't know why, but those camera phone pics make the car and the house it's in front of look like a 1:18 scale model.


I need a drink

Well...actually, the big difference is the special suspension and the wheels. The other stuff is basic cosmetic upgrades...cause no matter what people spout here...most of those who will spend the money to upgrade to a higher level trim/configuration, like to have some cosmetic differences to indicate the change.

Just looking at the pics, I immediately thought "that looks an awful lot like the Toronto area". Then look at location.

My dad has a spec-B... it's not any faster than the regular GT, but it has much better suspension, larger (nice) wheels, I think a lighther flywheel, the red leather seats, navigation system, etc.

If you ask me it's not worth all the extra money... but it is a very nice car.
