OG, I must say as well, I was quite surprised at the improvements Subaru made with the new Legacy. I'm not saying that the second generation was bad, because it was and still is a fantastic car, but IMHO, the new Legacy GT has a little more of a driver's feel to it, a bit more like my Legacy Turbo. Another thing that I like about it is that for some reason while sitting in the driver's seat, I get the impression that the car is smaller then what it is. My Mom's 98 GT Ltd just "feels" like a bigger car then the 00'. I know in some areas the 00' is fractionally smaller but not enough for someone to actually notice it. Maybe it's just me. In any case, I think the new GT's are easily worth every penny of their price.
