I traded an M3 for this

2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


We're starting a family, so I traded in my dream car, a '97 BMW M3, for this car. Did I hesitate? Of course. But I'd do it all over again! This car has more horsepower (250 vs. 240), as much torque (250 vs 236), and on paper, is almost as fast 0-60 (5.9 vs. 5.7). On top of that, it's got a more comfortable ride, has an adult backseat, cargo space to burn (folding seats!), and a 2700 lb. towing capacity. Hellooo boat. The gauge cluster is very nicely done, except the confusing lack of boost gauge. Feature for feature, the Legacy has almost everything the M3 had, including heated sport seats.

Best Features

Performance/AWD, Capacity. Appearance.

Worst Features

Boost gauge, stability control.
