Hoping for Scooby no.5


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A hello from the Kinross area. Currently on Scooby no.4, a 2013 2.0D legacy estate which I think is a bit of a rare beastie.

Previously a 1998 legacy saloon, 2005 Forester and a 2012 BRZ. Had to sell the BRZ as I'd either die in a ditch or have my licence removed...

Plotting to go for a new Outback Field but as the legacy is still young and only has 95k miles I'm struggling to justify a new car just for some funky roof bars...

BRZ was an interesting ownership proposition. Usual Scooby reliability, epic fun, handling and steering. However the flat spot in the torque curve, need to drop 2 gears to accelerate, the lack of soundproofing, a boring, non scooby exhaust note and the dull black interior were the downsides. 


Whether I'm just ill disciplined, but every open road ended up as a white knuckle ride, pushing far harder than either the law or my sense of personal longevity deemed prudent. I wonder if it was turbocharged whether I might actually have driven it slower, using the torque to make smooth progress rather than berserk redlining everywhere....


Miss it!
