    I heard the legacy Wagon is being discontinued for model year 2008. They are only going to make the sedan. Can anyone verify?
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Sounds accurate.

    All the wagons will be Outbacks.

    All the sedans will be Legacys.

    Few will miss the Outback sedan, but we own a Legacy wagon so that one will be missed. :(

    The Legacy wagon (in all levels including the turbo versions) will still be sold in Canada and will be available for export. Canadian and US models have been identical.

    This is interesting. I live in Colorado and drive a 2002GT with manual and some upgrades. I had my car in the local dealers and browsed the lot. Not a single Legacy wagon to be found. I think they have already been discontinued here. LewBob

    Yep. They dropped the manual trans from the Legacy GT wagon, too. It was only sold in MY2005. :cry:
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    I think the first few have been trickling in to dealers already. They should be widely available by the end of the month. :shades:
  • We were at the dealer last weekend and his information said the 08 models would be in the showroom at the end of April.

    I wish Subaru would put up the specs!

  • i went to fitzmall website and they have some as coming soon. their msrp shown seems to be 2000 more than 07 model.
    I hope they make non limited GT or limited 2.5i with manual.. whose would be in my price range
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    There is no GT non-limited. has the MSRPs and the trims. I'm just looking for the nitty gritty specs on em.

  • canandian prices are alot higher than here. especailly with the exchange rate the way it is.
  • ehrens1ehrens1 Posts: 1 has more information than even does, right now.

    I was walking to my car in the Del Mar Highlands Shopping center parking lot and it drove right past me!!!

    I looked twice at the car to make sure it was a 2008. The rear badge said 3.0. Unless the 3.0 version was produced last year than I saw a silver 2008!

    IT was very dirty to say the least. I'm wondering it Subaru was conducting testing in the desert outside the san diego county line.

    some '08's are at dealers and for sale it appears.

  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    No 08 for me... :(

    Found a perfect 05 5MT wagon :)

  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Rare combination, mike. Very rare. Did you pick it up? Don't hesitate else it'll be done.
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    I'm getting it from a friend actually who was on the 48hrs. He needs to get a pickup truck to haul the Harley he is getting in the spring, so I'm picking his leg up. I would normally not buy a used car, but in this case I know the owner so it'll work out nicely.

    Satin White, can't wait to tint the windows, should look hotttt.


  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Looks clean.

    Def. get the tint. 35 all around?

    I'd also take the A off the back and move the B over so it just said BRU. :D
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Probably get 20% all around :)

    After that the mod list looks like:
    Hella Super Tones
    Hawk HPS or HP+ pads
    Another set of LGT rims for Faulken Azenis Sports for Summer tires as it comes with Nokian Snows on there now.
    Turbo-back custom exhaust (my buddy Frank who designed the one for the SVX will whip something in-expensive yet well sounding up for me)
    Possibly a Turbo upgrade and/or Cobb AP

    That's about it to start with, once the struts are used a bit more I'll go with the specB suspension.

  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Sounds good, mike. Plus you've always sort of carried the torch for old school Subies. Now that the GT wagon is gone completely you can continue to do that. :shades:
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Tis true!

    Show me a rare or red-headed-step-child Subaru from the past 10 years and I've owned it or wanted to own it. Now I need a 2nd get Outback SUS/Sedan and/or a Baja.

    I absolutely can't wait to get it out on the HPDE circuit, when we aren't racing the other legacy.

    Juice --are you saying that Subary has dropped the Legacy Wagon? What's your source, just out of curiosity? Amazing, when you consider that Subaru has such a strong association with sporty wagons and hatchbacks --one of the features that made it unique as a niche automaker (along with AWD). If this isn't just a temporary glitch --could it be that they're planning to bring the 2008 Legacy wagon at a later date?-- then lovers of sporty wagons will have only Mazda and VW to turn to, unless they can afford the rather pricey Saabs, Volvos, Audis, BMWs and Mercedes out there.
  • its all over the press. Subaru dropped legacy wagon and outback sedan. legacy wagon didnt sell very good, people bought outback instead. they are essentially same except the ride height. So subaru will still have wagon just not legacy wagon.
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    And they only made a 5MT in 05-06, AT only in 07.

  • satchmosatchmo Posts: 34
    The outback is a fine, dual-purpose sort of car, but doesn't have the Legacy GT's BMW-like road handling.
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Struts, springs, rims and tires are just about all that separates them. Seriously, it's that simple.

  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Cosmetically, the fender flares, as well.

    I'm confused. While no dealers in the Baltimore area list having the 07 Legacy LL Bean with the 6 cylinder engine in stock, the Subaru web site says that such a car exists. Does Subaru make the Legacy sedan with a 6 cylinder engine?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    There are no more 07s except for a few, have to start looking at 08s.

    Yes, but it's an '08 model.
