not 100% decided on the manual yet so who knows but those other 2 dealers you mentioned are 100+ miles away unfortunately

That would be quite funny if it were not opposite to the facts...*


BRZ front bumper looks like a gormless, grinning viliage idiot next to the agressive GT86.*


The Scooby version also suffers from soggy rear spring rates yet has spine-jarring front ones...


This can destroy your fillings over the bumps and makes it trickier to get the back end out without risking death !*


I think you should read carefully some of the bankrupting Subaru service charges and bad customer service that many of their dealers have delivered, whilst owners have to share service reception with dubious sheep farmers!*


PS I am only joking on the last point...(The sheep bit!) *


steady on estranged subaru owner

Sigh... ...We all make mistakes...

...The trick is to learn from them !

Detailing guru...- Keep it clean, folks! Now a powerful Sith Lord after lusting for power & being seduced by the Dark Side (PORSCHE! ). Still a GT86 fan though...

I've always been prepared to travel to get the right deal/right car, did a 400 mile round trip to see 3 legacy's before I bought my spec b, all same year, colour, spec and mileage.

I've never worked in the s/w so I don't know the dealers in that area unfortunately

Not a lot it seems on the 2017 model I just purchased!

I requested a full tank of fuel, set of mats and mudflaps to clinch the deal and as the 'Mirrorlink' feature which I was informed was included turned out not to be then also my first two services FOC

MY2018 are due Android, Apple/Play as standard which is a great leap forward compared to the crappy Starlink system and the 'sorry not on your car' Mirorlink system on my 2017
