I have owned a 2006 spec.B and a 2007 spec.B, both purchased new. The 2006 had a factory short-throw shifter. The 2007's six-speed transmission was far more pleasant to use and, from what I've read, more robust and durable. The spec.B suspension's has lightweight aluminum components and BBS forged wheels. The spec.B has better seats than the Legacy GT. For a few thousand dollars, you can turn a Legacy GT into a sedan comparable to a spec.B, other than the six-speed transmission. I enjoyed both cars, especially the 2007. If Subaru offered a spec.B today with automatic transmission, I'd buy it.
