    Subaru Legacy 2015

    it seems like the list u showed is the nett price (but no harm bargaining some more). the previous list price was 141,800 but sales were taking place at 135,800 nett. so the new nett price is a 6k drop in line with coe.

    they have chopped prices by 6k, in line with the drop in coe. price is correct. :) MI is usually quite garang in bidding for coe for Cat B so normally buyers do not pay the 3k. i am assuming there is no buying avalanche for legacy unlike the feb toyota corolla altis saga.

    i think 139,800 is available till 30th jun registration. they prob have cat e coes to fill the order. after that, cevs +5k.

    2015 Subaru WRX

    i believe it is becoz the 6MT WRX has run out of stock and all registrations will have to be in july which will incur a hefty 20k CEVS SURCHARGE. so before the upcoming coe is the last chance to get the wrx manual and the STi (not sure how much increase in CEVS surcharge for Sti).

    i remember years ago, someone was teaching how to park into a parallel parking lot from the other side of the road by pulling the handbrake and the car will turn 180 degrees and park neatly. lol.

    New car discount/price/promo

    not sure if there are any wrx fans but prob last chance to clear stock. wrx auto promo price 146,800, SE says 143,800. wrx manual already out of stock as promo price is 169,800. wrx sti still selling at 167,800. from july, increase in cevs surcharge will be a whopping 20k.

    in the first video i attached, it managed a 52 degree upslope. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C25-4l4HREg&list=PLOsAXNJzBWc-jYKqIeGrWknCbDZsDHx3c&index=12 in this video, it sort of demonstrated the x-mode (from about 3mins into the video). followed by going down a bumpy slope. not that many of us will be doing this type of extreme terrain but it certainly will help drivers with very little experience off-road should the situation call for it.

    not significantly different from other 2l cars. perhaps only wrx a little higher than xt.

    but all the other models, even XV, come with 6 to 7 airbags?

    i've just gone for the 1st servicing. they tried to sell me a polish package and an undercarriage insulation thinghy. my wife thought we should get that undercarriage thinghy which had 2 layers and cost $600. the DUO points from the purchase of the forester can dedcut $100. so still had to pay $500. but overall, they are polite and u can decline their recommendation and tell them u only want the servicing which is FOC, no problem at all.

    i'm trying something which i m not sure if it will damage the cruise control haha. since it is very hard to "lut" when the car is in traffic anyway, i turn on and off my cruise control quite frequently, even at low speeds. the cruise control works from 35km/h onwards. fuel efficiency improved slightly. i will be full of the subaru spirit when i head up north in it for the first time in june.

    the current forester has an x-mode button for even better grip. but for TS' benefit, the non turbo will also benefit from the AWD on tarmac. i really enjoyed driving in the heavy downpour a few days after collecting the car. lol. u just have to drive the car normally. the forester also came out tops in both the european and north american crash tests. in fact, so did every other subaru that is currently on sale. how come nobody is promoting subaru as a safe car? hasn't it shed its beng image yet?

    the car is made to be more nimble than the outback. they already have the outback for spaciousness. in the US they have a 3.6l outback i think. not sure why they can't fit the outback with the 2.0l turbo also.

    i bought an XT earlier this year when the coe dipped after going through the videos below. lol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWVAn8ZONLI&list=PLOsAXNJzBWc-jYKqIeGrWknCbDZsDHx3c the videos may be more applicable to XT but some of the videos highlight how safe this car really is. there is a misconception that subaru is only about performance. their AWD is different from certain other brands' AWD and it actually does make the car more safe. FC is expectedly low. (still trying to find ways to improve the efficiency).
