  1. Hey everyone, So I'm really enjoying my new Outback so far, I'm only a week in but I'm loving it. I want to put my private plate on my new car, what size plates do I go for? The back is obviously designed for the taller plates that they use in other parts of the world, what UK sizes fit in there? The standard UK size just looks really lost in such a big space. Would a curved one like the Rover 75 plates fit? Or what about another style? What do you guys have? I have tried just measuring it, but it's the curves that are the problem, not the straight length and height? Thanks!

    Thanks 4eyes. I've been out of the car market for a while due to a change in circumstances but I'm back now! I'd be keen to hear from anyone else who has the 4th generation diesel. Sent from my HTC One_M8 using Tapatalk
  3. Hello all, I'm driving round in my Land Rover Defender. It's been a good friend through the years but unfortunately I fancy something new and there's the need for a car that does better at high speeds. I've always loved the Subarus and really fancy the outback. I've been to look at a few and they drive great but why one thing you can't really get the feel of on a 20 min test drive it's their cruising potential. How is the 2l boxer diesel at a long cruise? Say a few hours at 80 or 90? Are they noisy? Is the engine stressed or relaxed? Thanks in advance, Jack
