If Subaru is gonna look like a European car then act like a European car. Can someone bring the "2005 Subaru Legacy and Outback" forum back? It had 11 pages of Messages, can't go wrong with that. These new forums are like dead and all I read in these new forums is, don't want this don't want that(complains).
Now some good news: more HP
from Sept. 2003 Popular Mechanics mag. pg. 75
"The Jap version comes with either a normally aspirated or turbo charged 2.0-liter flat four. Our car will have the bigger 2.5-liter four. A turbocharged model will follow by about six months and, if you want the extra go, it should be worth the wait: The turbo will pack nearly 280hp. Our sources within Surbaru tell us that a higher-performance Sti model with twin turbos and 350 hp will come a year later."

Until I hear something more solid, I'll wait on the actual details. I just want them to get here so I can replace my MY97 GT.
I know they're clearing inventories of 04's, but, waiting, waiting, waiting.......

Atlantic Blue Pearl for me, please. Turbo. Moonroof. Definitely wagon bodystyle.

juice - I'll take one of those too! And throw in the Macintosh audio while you're at it.

That's perfect, color and bodystyle, it's even pre-tinted. Where do I sign?

...said first cars are expected to be delivered early 2Q04. I can have the first if I want - no clarity yet on 6MT or 5AT availability. Also, gotta have roof rails for the bikes.
It will be sad to see my trusty 02 WRX wagon go, but she's served me well. Just want a little more room. Interested to see if the paddle shifters make it to the US markets on a 5AT. As much as I love my manual, sometimes I yearn for an AT, especially in stop and go...or when I'm trying to drink coffee, talk on my phone, wave the birdie at people, etc.

from the photos and info posted on the global and Oz sites, it looks like the new Legacy has the channels and anchors in place for the roof racks, but just not the racks. the new Outback appears to just stick the racks on the existing channels. Thus, I'm assuming you can get racks and crossbars as an option on the Legacy, which I definitely need. I cant wait for the GT to get here so I can do meaningful comparison test drive between the Legacy GT,Legacy 3.0, the OB 3.0 and the Forester XT. The reports on the new sport shift auto in the new Legacy/OB and the auto in the XT have been so impressive, I am losing my fervor for a manual.

what a beautiful wagon it is, absolutely amazing, i wouldve gone for a mazda 6 wagon(but they are no where to be found), or a saab 95(way to pricey) so i guess i will settle for the beautiful subaru legacy wagon(make mine a turbo with 275hp and about 247 torque, and a 6sp, and let's not forget really good cup holders)
