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
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???
