    Got my SVX tinted today. 35% all around. I would have gone darker...but any tint on the front is illegal here, so i didnt want to go too dark.

    Acceleration slow, or top speed slow?

    It's not a drag racer...it's meant to be a highway cruiser. Completely stock I ran 15.7 1/4 mile, so it's decent enough to beat any ricer you find.

    It's really at home on the highway. 60-120 is a snap, and it's extremely stable up to 140 (fastest i've gone).

    Yeah, no one was going to buy a 30k Subaru in 1992. :ugh: :rofl:

    Only 25000 made, and only 14,500 made it to the US.

    I'm at 108k right now. I'm a detailing fanatic. :bigthumb:

    Wait til it gets warm, it'll be even cleaner. (although anything more clean doesnt really show up in pics)

    Beautiful car, I've always like those. If I trusted buying cars on Ebay, I might have ended up with a burgundy/tan interior one instead of my SC. Got an interior & dash shot? I really like the look of those cars. Decent stock performer and a real looker beats out plain jane with a little faster straight line any day in my book. There's a lot more to good cars than driving a quarter mile at a time.
