New UK Member..I just had to!....
 
Join :)

Well, the reason i have just joined this forum is because i have been visiting as a guest for a while now and on a daily basis!..

A bit of my Subaru background first...
...I have had many sporting cars but a few years back after a succession of BMW M3's i decided to purchase a Subaru Impreza P1 (Prodrive classic shape)..
..Well, this car just blew me away, to say it was Dynamically spectacular in it's road holding and performance would be an understatement :eek:...it was in effect a tarmac rally stage car..I spent a fair bit on the car, with modifications and a remap...i had a several month love affair with this car..

I did purchase another P1 Impreza before i moved onto the JDM SG model Forester STi... this 2.5 motor was an absolute blast and although a more refined car with more creature comforts, it was a mighty car with plenty of torque from the AVCS engine, I kept this car for 9 months.

Despite the wonderful capabilities of the above cars and the joy of driving them, i also enjoyed my life and the prospect of shortening it with these cars became something that i occasionally thought about when i had a bout of spirited driving ;) ...

...So this led me onto my recent purchase a Legacy 3.0 Ltr R saloon (sedan), No pictures as yet as i am halfway through the mod's i am carrying out (Wheels, suspension and cosmetics)

I am an active member of a few Subaru forums here in the UK (inc' The UK Legacy forum)...this leads me back to why i have been dipping into LGT..i have been fascinated by the wealth of information and photographs and the enthusiasm of many of the members on here.....the reason i didn't join sooner is it is a very large and busy forum and i thought i would get lost in the amount of posts that are contributed and it would just take to much of my time keeping pace with it! (especially as i am active on other Subaru forums here in the UK)

Nevertheless, here i am and i hope to get involved in the discussion and have a positive contribution .:)

Thanks, Phil.


ps..here is one of my 1st mods to my 3.0Ltr R..front grille done with Plasti-kote Matt enamel spray can..

Thanks for the comments so far guys...yes, the Prodrive Impreza was a very capable car ( a damn sight more capable than i was :eek:).. I found myself driving that car at 11/tenths sometimes, the only car that has genuinely frightened me !!

As for the Forester STi, that got so much attention it was embarrassing! (it also embarrassed a few other drivers who thought they could outrun a family estate car!)

Both great fun but kinda glad to be in the more sedate Legacy 3.0 R with the tiptronic box (i'm nearer to the half century in age than my heart sometimes thinks i am !)

The Union Jack represents so much in the worlds history but 'Cool' has gotta be one of the best things :cool:

Welcome to the site and glad you joined us.

Look forward to your contributions going forward, especially since you're holding in your hands, something we can't get here, a 6MT Legacy 3.0R.

Again, welcome.
