The legacy is definately hot. I wonder how they detuned the motor or if it is possibley underrated like the Forester XT. Won't be long once there out before you see some 300+hp ones out there.

Yeah... true. The STI motor is a beautiful thing. A 2.5L 4 cylinder w/ a turbo = good low-end torque, very little turbo lag, and lots of potential. :D

I don't like the Monte Carlo-esque headlights. They look terrible to me. I'd rather just get the STI.

(Wow, that's a really negative post, haha).
Everyone's entitled to their opinion. You also like the older Ford Taurus body-style, haha. ;)

I just watched Car and Driver tonite. They compared a WRX against a Mitsubish Lancer Evo, and they chose the EVO over the WRX....
I think I saw that same episode. They were compariing the EVO with the WRX STi. The EVO had a more tied-down feel and better handling overall... that was the biggest advantage it had over the STi.

Anyway, I sat in the new Legacy and looked at it pretty closely, and it is a top-notch car in its pricerange. They made a huge improvement over the previous model. It's to the point where it can compete with an Audi A4 & the BMW 3 series... but it's significantly cheaper and Subaru has more impressive reliability ratings.
