Would you guys pick the 2005 Legacy GT over a G35?

I'm in a dilemma whether to get a G35 6MT sedan or the 2005 Legacy GT (Turbo, 250 HP)

I like that Subaru :thumbup:


If I was going to get a G35 it would have to be a coupe. For a family wagon... S4 or IS300 would be my first picks.

The new GT is a beautiful car:thumbup: And probably responds well to mods knowing Subys. I voted for that. But the G35 is a great award-wining car and it is established vs. the Suby which is brand new, so it might have bugs.

Give us some specs though. How do the prices compare?
Give us the HP/Tq & RPM, weight, number of gears, etc....

id go with the legacy as well. you can't compete with the AWD (well i guess the g35 is available with it, but theres lotsa more weight and poor gas millege compared to the RWD model), and being twin turbo, a couple of bolt-ons and a chip and yur set for all the hp you will need. also, there probly wont be as many B4's around as g35s, and thats a :thumbup: in my books:cool:

it all depends on preference. Definately for originality, I'd go with the subaru. It would be great in winter (but your in cali anyway), Subaru's AWD system is bar none. However, it is a totally redisigned car, and this is the first year out....I'd hate to be the guinea pig. If your a true enthusiast, I'd say the G35 (I'd personally take a coupe). It has rear wheel drive, won more awards than it has options, and puts out more horsepower out of a naturally aspirated engine than the Subaru, even with two turbo's (280 vs. 250, correct me if im wrong).

Also of note, the new Acura TL is growing on me...

Wishing I had the same choice to make....:disappoin

What a toss up, what a dilemma, It's hard to choose. I have a Legacy in the family and it's a great car, I've always wanted a G35 though, it's like USA's version of the new skyline.

Well, I assume the Legacy GT will be just a smidge cheaper than the G35 and the GT has AWD, I'd end up going with the GT.

Twin turboed? You sure about that? All turbo Subaru's a 4 cyl boxer engines and it makes no sense for a car manufacturer to try and twin turbo one. Especially not Subaru when they have very compent single turbo engines. I am pretty sure that engine only has one turbo.

With that said, I would take the Subaru over the G35,

One thing that hasnt been mentioned about the G35 is that the "AWD" version isnt like subaru AWD, its intelligent AWD that only uses the front wheels when needed. It'll feel much more like RWD.

Personal preference, as much as i love the G35, id have to go w/ the subaru just because there are so many G35's in my area.

G35, the NA setup will prove to be more reliable and have lower maintence cost over the long run.

But if you just want the car for a lease period I'd take the subarau, nice sleeper ;)

the G35 sedan is a basically a 4 door 350z

it is not a skyline, and what the hell gave you that idea?

skylines run inline 6's G35's run V6's.... so its not even the same engine.

ANYWAY...
Id go for the Subaru, they have awesome all-wheel drive systems, the interior looks hella pimp. the G35 coupe would be cooler though. sedan is kinda funky looking.

I love our Subaru Outback - but it is a slow hunk of shit, and if it was faster, it would be a MUCH cooler car.

This thing is supposed to be a beast, 0-60 in 5.5-5.8 range!!! :eek:
