I have a TT Legacy BG5 wagon. Love it, touch wood it's never had a problem except the usual parts that wear out. Coming up 200k and still running strong, gearbox changes smooth with no crunching, no smoke or oil usage from the motor.
Probably the only completely standard one left out there though!

Some people complain about the vod, but when you're in 3rd or 4th, put your foot down, primary turbo is almost at full boost by 2000rpm, the car starts humming along, vod hits, the secondary turbo kicks in its awesome, the noise and the way the rev counter and speedo shoot up so quick.

I upgraded from my daily toyota AE111 to a V4 STI impreza and tbh I had less issues with the impreza.

Only reason I really sold it is because I was worried about it being "owned" by someone else when parked in town at nights.

It seems to be about maintenance with them, treat them right and don't be an ass hat and they will serve you reliably

no friggen way. the only DNF i have had was Gore Rally in 05 ? in a Subparu Leprosy.
spent first service trying to place plugs/coilpacks, second sevice trying to negro up the clutch system to keep going.
useless pricks didn't have a box of beers in the service barge for when then enevitable happened.

luckily it wasn't mine and was only co-driving as i would have torched the bloody thing for amusement !!
I've been a bad bad boy. I should read the rules and behave before I get spanked by an admin

f#@k you i won't do what ya tell me

Only 1 who voted project.
Technically I haven't 'switched' coz I have the Subbie, 1994 wrx ra wagon, sitting next to the ST205. I will get one going soon as I sold my MX5 to my nephew.

The four seasons in Australia consist of "$&#$% it's hot", "Can you believe how $&#$% hot it is?", "I won't be in today because it is too $&#$% hot" and "Yes, the dinner plate size spiders come inside to escape from the heat."
