so i go to the local subaru dealer to get a brochure of the new legacy for my dad, and i start talking to the salesman, things progress, and before i know it im asking for a test drive. the amazing thing is that he let me drive it and i'm only 16! B) so i go out in a legacy 2.5GT wagon w/ 5spd manual (250hp 250lb/ft) and it rocks!! Its so fast (almost as fast as my dads 540i!) it just motors, i had a hard time keeping it under 20km over the speed limit :lol: it feels very BMW-like and handles great i actually got to go into a 4-wheel drift (at the insistance of the salesman!) going around a broad 90 degree corner at 130km/h the gearshift feels like it already has a short shift kit on it and the clutch is very BMW-like in its release and weighting.the only thing i'd want on it would be a 6th gear, cuz in 5th at 4500 is 150km/h . the best part is that it only costs $42,000 CDN for a fully loaded 2.5GT 5spd

now i just have to convince my dad to buy one for my mom! we were looking at the 3 series touring, but they're a bit on the pricey side, and a bit cramped in the back for what we need. i'd prefer the bimmer, but hey, a subaru is better than our 98 V70 that is so fucking slow ghead

hmm, i have to go to the bmw stealership 2moro to get the 540i looked at, maybe they'll let me take a 330i or a 530i out to play with (what are the chances i could take an M3??? )

thats funny torquester.. we have a v70 too, and my mom was thinking about a e46 325 next, but the suburu's price and performance blow the shit out of the bmw we drove.

subys are really expensive to repair though, and if your AWD system goes they are way more to replace that say the bmws RWD system

just to note: the president of the local bimmer club just bought a legacy gt, and he brought it to the autocross, it beat quite a few 911's

Repair cost between a subaru and BMW don't differ much, I have a friend who has a STI. I think subaru's are great, cheap and amazing performance. And they know AWD very well, they have been in the rally business sucessfully for decade's. I would probably choose a STI over a M3, cause it saves you about $30000 CND.

Thats the guy, but he isn't angry or anything, daddy is buying him a 2004-5 m3 this weekend

That STI is sooo fun to drive, you shift like 1 and 1/2 inches....soooo short

What a spoiled guy tho

He said would give me 2 g's to get him laid LOL

Let me get this straight, first mommy buys him an m3, he totals it like a dipshit, and THEN she buys him a new STI? Holy shit that kid is so screwed when he gets out on his own.
