You must be kidding right? Yea for the money Legacy is a great car and stuff but E55 is completely on a different level.

It has one of the greatest torqy engines mod friendly too! Luv it.

No Doubt about it, that Legacy is one sick car....

but dont even look at it from a perspective of OOOH MERCEDES!!

look at reliability....that legacy is a custom tuned, maxed out engine...

Mercedes is a chip and intake....which one will be more reliable?

I'll tell you more, many owners run Kleemann stage 2 or 3 pakages with over 500rwhp and its just as reliable!!! Its one of the best engines, too bad it didnt end up in ML63! Or clk55!

I agree with th engine part. However a major NO NO for me is that the Merc only comes in automatic (ok maybe semi auto) and is not a car for circuit driving!
On the SUbarus advantage is also the fact its 4wd.
So although we are comparing apples to oranges, i would take the Subaru fully loaded and with the rest of the money make it faster-more reliable-and beter handling
