Can't argue with ya, but I have been pronouncing them that way for forty years, and, remarkably, people always know what I'm referring too...

I had a scooby Turbo and a Legacy wagon. The Turbo was rattly, fast, loud and thirsty. The 165bhp Legacy was slow, burbly and shockingly thirsty. I ran it alongside the 9-5 Aero wagon and other than a double sunroof and road-holding it was inferior in ever way I can think of.

What model and spec were you thinking of looking at as an original Forester is very different to the later models.

As long as you don't end up buying a Subura. That's an ancient Roman slum...

I has an old legacy and it was a wonderful car to drive, think it was an early nineties model, and I had an Impreza type ra,,93 model, white, gold wheels, roof scoop, 2.2 block just short of 300hp with adjustable diff , worth fortune now, ruined me!! Quick though

i was tempted to buy this as it was 15 miles away viewtopic.php?f=1&t=183165&hilit=+subaru

mainly for the rebuilt gearbox and look for a nice one with a knackered gearbox
but a mate who builds scoobys bought it for the exact reason i wanted it
he has a full workshop and spanner monkeys so he did quite well indeed out of this deal

We had a Forester with a prodrive plus conversion. Brilliant car, very plasticy inside, quite thirsty but it didn't encourage you to drive it slowly, I'd have another like a shot. The complete classless car, everybody had good things to say about it because it offered something for everybody.

I remember James May saying on an episode of top gear many years ago, "The Subaru Forester, best kept secret of the wealthy country set"

Got to be great fun changing the cam belt on that Boxer engine, be it the flat 4 or the flat 6. Sure I remember seeing one in a work shop with the front bumper and panel removed,along with the rads, all you could see was cam belt from one side of the engine bay to the another, given the engine orientation im not sure if they use one belt or two?

Had an Impreza wagon ages ago and it was so horrid inside I got rid of it after 6weeks. Cheap Plasticy and not comfortable. Went like poo off a shiny shovel but that’s all it had going for it. Wouldn’t have another one.

I've had my Subaru STi wagon since 1999, 50k miles now, probably 300 miles this year. Original engine and gearbox, never failed to start. Managed 326 bhp in 2006 on optimax and octane booster, and being a V3 it likes to rev. Also had a twin turbo legacy for a few years, bought as a winter car but ended up using it a lot more because it was so much fun. On full chat in 3rd once the 2nd turbo cuts in the acceleration was nuts, quicker than the wagon at those sort of speeds, but the wagon was much quicker off the mark to 100 mph.

STi V3 is back on the road this week as the 2006 Aero wagon failed its MOT due to corrosion around the rear strut mounts :roll: Saab should be back tomorrow so the Subaru can be tucked away in the garage again.

Can't decide what to replace the 9-5 Aero with, another legacy import or a V70r? Like the Saab, but 4wd is useful where I live.

I much preferred the drive of the 2.5 over the 2.0 (because torque) but of course they were made of cheese, sadly, so couldn't be boosted over 320 bhp without terminal borkage, unlike yours, which will take almost anything thrown at it.

Mine does have piston slap, all the 97 cars did, sound like a bag of spanners when cold but as long as its warmed and cooled it doesn't do any damage.

borkage not heard that for a while since moving out of essex and talking to boy racers who like to kill there engines alot

dont throw anything at it
it look lovely to me white gold rims nice oh and tidy had many a 16v renault with gold rims most cars should have gold rims
the early ones are the only ones that look right the later ones er not so much to be polite

i think a import twin sounds the way to go

theres a guy local who buys the the ugly import toyota saloons with a really stupid name like an uglier lexus ls400 not saying as ls400 is ugly by the way
god it shifts and sounds amazing must have a twin turbo its got twin proper meaty sized stainless pipes and the rapid departure it made out my road was epically fast
think he has a turbo early previa aswell with supra alloys the big heavy crossspoke type off the 90s supras

think it may of been one of these maybe it was dark and his cars dark grey so maybe one of these
https://oppositelock.kinja.com/unassumi ... 1819703093

he has a nissan stagea i think its called an estate v6 skyline based i think he said
