It's been a very long time

Hi all,

Hopefully most of you older members remember me but for those who don't, my name is Alex and i was previously heavily into this forum and modifying (breaking) my L-series (wanky wagon)

Things have changed a fair bit in my life since then; family, kids, houses, work etc. But i have recently purchased another Subaru which is a 2007 outback.

Since the 'old days' i have had a SWB GQ patrol which was pretty heavily modified, 2000 outback, a VW Passat which was a major let-down and cost me extreme amounts of money to now where i have a 2013 hyundai i45 which is the family car(and its a seriously good vehicle), my 2001 special edition liberty (which i have had since i was 18 and can't part with it) and my latest subaru

I know AndrewT will shoot me down, but it is a 2.5l automatic and i bought it mainly because it has relatively low km (101000km) and its in great nick at a really good price.

This is my second car that i can tow a trailer with(no tow ball on hyundai or liberty = annoying), load the kids and dog into and go for a fang down the beach etc. So it really suits my family's needs perfectly.

Anyway here is a couple of pics and i look forward to mingling with you guys again.







Alex

Hey Bennie, no mods planned at this stage - do baby seats count?

Perhaps some lifted springs in the future but i really want to keep this one neat.

I'll just be doing the normal maintenance stuff at this stage, have already done a complete cooling system overhaul (not necessary) but it just gives me some peace of mind. Feels good to get all my tools out again and have a muck around!

Alex

Yay welcome back Alex. I'm quite a fan of the Gen4s. When I get too fed up with bumping around in the rattly old L series I'm pretty sure that's what I would move into. Certainly more room would be handy with the two baby seats. You're right, I'd probably go with a different driveline but you won't cop any flack from me - these days I respect everyone's preferences

Welcome back I thought your post count would stay on 5555 forever.

Nice wagon, I want to see it bogged at Preston or White Hills

haha, i was looking for a 6 cylinder, but unfortunately in the outbacks they are all autos. Took this thing for a drive and the 2.5l goes pretty good. Its obviously not as powerful as the 6 cylinder, but its definitely no slouch - and it cruises around town using 8.2l/100km on regular unleaded. Its just cheaper all round to run.

The condition, low km's and price is what really sold it for me.

I am currently stripping the stereo out of my liberty to transplant into the outback and geez these things are a pain the ar$e because of the built in dash/climate control.

Toonga, i am keen to test it out in the sand, i have had it through the bush at Pickering Brook and its got heaps of traction so i think it'll go pretty well!

Alex

so i've done a few things

the most important thing is a decent stereo, so i have stripped my gear out of my liberty and transplanted it. It is a rather large system so its taken a bit of time to do it properly









Thats it for now. Pretty happy with the results and i can feel a wanky wagonish bromance forming

Hehehe... I was wondering how long this would take to "manifest" again.

Cheers
