Just joined and thought I would introduce myself.
A keen Subaru enthusiast, however am Subaru-less at present. Have owned three, my favorite being the 1986 RX Turbo L series sedan. We are planning on purchasing a Forester XT in the next 6 months. I'm not sure if you use the same model names. The XT is what the Turbo model is called here in Aust.
At present own a Mitsubishi Pajero GLS and Mitsubishi Galant V6. Both great vehicles, but would really love to get back into a Subaru. Living in the Top End of Aust was the deciding factor on purchasing the big 4WD, however with a move back down south to either Brisbane or Canberra early next year and the possibility of baby #2, we feel we wont need the larger 4WD.
The Subaru fraternity in Aust is quite strong and you find many of them would not consider owning anything else. This brand has a very good reputation here, which many of the other Asian manufactureres are envious of.
Over here, the Ultra Light Aircraft owners mostly use Subaru power plants in their air-frames, which helps illustrate the trust in their reliability.
Anyway, I hope to be a regular visitor and hopefully gain some great info from this site.

The Buggy I built is a Rhino from down under, the guys down there are nuts for Subies!
If you get a chance throw a Forester dual range tranny in the mail for me some time:D Subaru only sells a single range transmission up here.
82 Hatch, now a Rhino Buggy
01 Forester, 5 speed single range tranny

I used to own a 1983 Sooby DL but it started to rust so we got rid of it.

If you come to Canberra I'm nearby. We're arranging a NSW/ACT meet for late November if you're interested. If you don't have a Suby you can ride with one of us!
No Mitsubishis allowed though.
