B4 subaru

Had a good look at one in the dealership the other day. Not a bad looking car. 190 odd Kws AWD in a package that doesn't look to bad!

I guess it was auto with 190 kWs. Manual is 206 kWs.I still don't have pic's of my sub for you yet sorry.I found them to be a good car quality wise.You should test drive one mate just for fun. I have heard and seen some fantastic 220 kW Falcons here that i will seriously consider buying in a year or 2 as a used vehicle.I have to admit that with the effort Ford has put into the Falcons,I am keen on them again.

I reckon if I do that I might end up buying one. I really like the AWD concept. Just a little small still

Cummon guys wait for AV that will be better than spending 55 grand on a small 4 cylinder with awd. i like Liberty B4, its the biggest of the subaru's while it looks good too. But I would never take it over an equivalent priced v8 Te50, ever!

For 55k it doesn't represent bad value either

I'm not dubting that but I don't think it can peform better than a 45k XR8 and build quality probably isnt that much better. For 55k id take a T-series without looking back.

We always get the short end of the stick hehehe.

On the subject of Subbies, if the leggie wagon isn't one of the best looking wagons around I don't know what is!

Those new ones with the dark tint on the rear windows are awesome.The dash is pretty cool too when you turn on the key.I promise to get pic's of mine soon tho it's an older model.
