    double post
  • thing is.. that wont actually do anything. at high speeds that little top spoiler on the roof at the back, will kick all the air over the top of it.

    i think anyways? aha

    Technically it's a wagon not an estate. ;)

    Oh dear, wonder if i should post it on scoobynet, then again it probably already has.
    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

    Yet another destroyed Subbie. When will these kids learn, if you're going to modify a car, do it under the bonnet where it counts...

    A shame - they are decent cars when not wrecked like that.

    Looks alright if it wasnt for the big wing sticking out !

    Surely you would clean your car before taking photos for a for sale ad :?

    thats the sti saloon spoiler or the prodrive one.......first time i've seen one on an estate :shock:
    i think he may have gone slightly too far in the (un)styling dept!!should have put the money towards a remap!

    Mrs Matt learned to drive in one of those (without the silly wings) - 2.0 Turbo Wagon. I had a few drives when we were first going out (her 17, me 20) - at the time it felt like a rocket!

    I looked at getting an Imprezza Wagon before I got the Legacy. They're nice and quick, just not really big enough for me. (I can 'hide' an MTB under the tonneau cover in the Legacy :wink: )
  • Surf-MattSurf-Matt Posts: 5,952
    It's just a slightly bigger hatch really - in fact I found my Golf more practical for space than the wagon. But still a lot handier than the saloon.

    Now there's no choice - hatch is all they do. And damn fugly it is too. Still quick though - the STi is bonkers quick in fact.

    Indeed. Makes one start to look at the EVO X FQ...
  • Surf-MattSurf-Matt Posts: 5,952
    I drove the FQ360 IX a while back (considered one briefly) - utterly brilliant car. I prefer it to the X but that still looks about 2395823592357293 times better than the Scoob. It looks okay as an STI but the Evo is heaps nicer.

    15mpg is a bit much though...!

    I've owned a Fourtrak petrol and a Grand Espace in the past. I could live with 15mpg.

    Oh and TBH, I prefer the Tommi Makinen EVO6 to any of the later ones. But I wouldn't say no to one either.
  • Surf-MattSurf-Matt Posts: 5,952
    Evo6 too chavvy and in your face for me.

    The FQ360 was just about subtle enough for me yet silly quick and gripped in a manner unknown to physics.

    pah, 15mpg? my old 730i used to run at about 15mpg, my old 628 was even thirstier!!

    my sportwagon (2litre non turbo) does about 33mpg which is perfectly serviceable, engine needs a whole lot less care than a turbo does and i love the wy it looks. goes pretty well due to the 4 wheel drive even without a super powerful engine in as much as i can corner at surprising speeds.

    Dad had a V12 Jag for a while (the four seater ugly one) - sub 10mpg...
    The 928 was very thirsty too and the BBR Mitsi Shogun (about 280bhp) did 12ish. The V8 Ford P100 (total sleeper) was about 10mpg too but 400bhp so kind of worth it.

    I thought my Golf (R32) was bad - low 20s did my head in!
