...with a horizontally opposed 2.5 litre turbocharged and intercooled engine





...producing 250 hp and 250 ft/lb of torque

Great choice, I plan on getting one after the 330 gets a few more years older.

Nice. I really like those. I'd love to get behind the wheel of one one of these days. How about a little GT4 Photo Mode I did a long time ago. And even the same color

Thanks all

Speedy 2, I enjoyed those pics. Great stuff. Gives me an idea, hook up the PS2 and track test the Legacy GT...

Yeah, I like the Legacy too. My cousin got one in red. I hope Subaru doesn't screw up the design of the next generation. It's actually a very handsome car.

Arkansas, Conway, not so bad, really.
Fine cars, and a great sleeper over here in the states. You'll certainly give BMW drivers something to think about at the lights. Congratulations.

Thanks, thanks and thanks

Sadly, the car's already had its first blemish in the form of someone backing into the side (of my week old car). As I was passing behind this guy and had almost driven past he caught the side of the rear bumper cover. Idiot! Turn around and look when you back up. :S

So, anyone wanna see the carnage?

Great car - I've loved the new Legacy/Liberty since when they first came out. My aspiration was once to eventually get a Liberty GT even if it meant sacrificing a toe (I was gonna say leg, but that would be stupid now that I think about it ). Awesome looks - sophisticated and understated - with well and truly ample performance.
I'm feel so sorry for you regarding the idiot who backed up into you... is the damage bad? And secondly, did he give you any sort of compensation for it? I understand how it feels to have a brand new car tarnished. Some mindless IDIOT keyed the rear driver's side door of my new IS250 a few weeks ago, and the scratch went right down to the bare metal. Made me almost want to cry and made me lose my faith in mankind. Got it touched up at a friend's body shop, and although the scar is still there, it's significantly better now. My greatest condolences once again, hope you're able to get it all fixed up as new.
