Any Older Soobie Converts Here?

I'm the PROUD owner of a '91 Loyale 5spd, 4WD wagon. It is fun and easy to work on, gets good gas milage, so-so performance/handling, and has TONS of features for an older/inexpensive car. But I think I might want more!
Has anyone else here made the jump from the EA8X cars to the Legacy? I think I would be much happier in a similar Legacy. Or even one with an automatic. If I make the jump, I'd like to do it before I sink too much money into the BanditWagon. I've already tuned it, and will be adding rear disk brakes this weekend. That's >$200 right there. I want a stereo, and rims, and, well, you know how things start adding up.
Your thoughts either way?

EDIT: my friend has a 2000 2.5RS, and ive driven numerous legacys, and Ea cars... its all your style i think, the legacys get nicer as they get newer (duh) but.. theres something about those EA series cars....

Having said that, the 91 is actually going to be an engine donor for one of the 86 wagons, but that's a particular quirk I have and may not suit everyone.

Legacies are nice cars. But EA series cars are more comfortable and better handling, I think--I like the smaller size, better gas mileage, availability of part-time 4WD and even the seat comfort.

I think I will stick with the BanditWagon. I do like the unique-ness of it, the 32 MPG, and the 4WD on demand. It is pretty easy to work on, as long as I take into consideration how old and corroded some areas might be.
I will however keep my eyes opened for a 95 - 96 Legacy wagon. If I find the right car at the right price, I'll get it. Otherwise I'll keep driving what I have until the wheels fall off! And get a decent stereo system!
