Looks very nice, any reason you went with the 5 door over the 4 door? How does the accelleration and handling compare to the MX-3 (be gentle here John) :D

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Post Re: New Boosted Ride! (Subaru inside)
the reason for the 5 door is because i dont like what the 4 door rear end looks like! i think it looks like a ford fucus... plus the 5 door shape is almost the same as my mazda 3 hatchback...

the acceleration is hard when boost hits... no spining at all, so it just holds you in the seat until you shift, my mx-3 just spins 1-2 gear if i floor it...

the handling is not comparable to the mx-3... sry to say that but man that thing handles!

best car i bought so far!

I prefer the '11's with the wide arches like the STI, but very nice color choice! I've slowly become fond of Subaru's since I'm around them all day long, haha. Mmmmm, Legacy GT's :love:

Proper cars in canada come with a big premium price tag, thats not out of line, just look up STI and EVO prices that alone would convince you to live stateside :lol:

Make sure you take good care of it. We got 05 Legacy GT for mom and it's been nightmare. Heads were all worn out so I got those and mechanic half-assed it. So I have it at Subaru mechanic who's doing it at his shop. I just bought a short block for it. After last mechanic put heads on it, it developed rod knock after a week.
My subaru experience has been pretty bad :(
