So after owning three Imprezas over the years, two of which GC's, I decided to change it up a little...

I went ahead and bought myself an 05 LGT Limited today. Does this mean I'm no longer allowed on here because I only drive a Legacy now? Do you guys hate me? Did I turn my back on the Impreza scene? :(

Don't run away, be my friend :p

EDIT: Details on the car:

05 LGT Limited
OBP with Black leather
The rare 5 speed of course. Rare because Black on black with a manual is an unlikely find.
Limited so heated and power everything.
107k on the clock and I am the now the second owner.
Yes that right, I bought it from the original owner who purchased it in 04 with 200 miles on it!
All fully serviced and up to date. Everything is tight as a drum. Quiet, stiff, it honestly feels brand new. I can tell this car was well taken care of which is mainly why I felt comfortable buying it.
Amazingly clean condition for a 7 year old car.
I picked it up for 9k which I feel is well worth it!
Pics coming soon.

I know everyone is different and everyone has their own driving record, policy, what have you but I think it is worth noting that despite the fact that this car is turbo and is valued on the books at three times that of an RS my insurance actually went down a little buying it. So despite popular belief, owning a turbo car does not always have to be expensive. This is because its a much safer and better built car but its still old enough to own without a lot of collision. My driving record is clean and I am highly insured but I really dont pay a lot for my 6 month premium at all.

I've never owned a GC and hope I never will. When I came here I drove an GD, then an Rx8, now a WRX. Still my forum of choice. The Forester forums are cool too (we have an 04 XT as well).

People here don't hate me for what I drive. They hate me because I'm a dick.

Well, unless it's a spec B, in which case hurry up and crash it, I need a swap! lol.

But yeah, half the people on here don't even have GC's anymore. Your not special :p

You got it right.......but then you didn't...............Grammar Nazi is confused!
:lol:


spec.B was a nice proposition, but they didn't do enough to make it really different. 6MT was a nice touch for the later versions in 2008-2009 I think it was, and the Bilstein struts of course were great. But it should've come standard with an SPT catback perhaps, that might've been nice. A shame there hasn't been a spec.B version of the current car...
