    Looks kind of cool, IMO, but too bulky to be athletic. I'd pimp the G35 in a second over that. Still would look cool blacked out, lowered, and with a supercharger and loud ass exhaust. It's like a new-age Impala SS.
    werd... i would definatly rock the g35 and especially the new TL over that. i think its kinda over-priced. its very nice, and also quite quick, but i just cant justify almost 40g's for a chrysler.
    but it reminds me very much of a cadillac.

    the legacy gt is an awesome car. the only prob. is that with that price range you also have to decided between that or the sti/evo.
    legacy def. will the refinement thing going for it though.

    After seeing the TL on the road in silver & black, I have to agree. I think the T is for Tasty.

    -tp<--will wait for them to get the idea of an AWD TL though

    WOW, great numbers. My wife is going to be happy, and that's with the 2.87 final drive ratio. I am getting the car with 3.45 final drive ratio so it should be a tad quicker.

    0-60 = 5.3
    1/4 = 13.9 @102


    Did it give some 30 to 70 numbers. The car has 390 LBS of torque and should be a screamer from a roll.

    Legacy GT sedan starts at $26K... Not too shabby for an AWD sedan with 250HP.

    Getting back on topic, I like the idea behind the 300C. Just wish it had more glass and weighed 500 pounds less in V8 guise.

    i doubt they will go AWD, but a RWD TL would still be the win!

    1. 300c
    2. magnum (AWD)
    3. TL
    4. Legacy
    5. WRX wagon
    6. AWD G35

    It's going to be tough shopping

    Yeah, what a dilema!!!

    I think the 300c looks awesome from the front and 3/4 views, but the side view is kinda funky looking. And just because a car is heavy does mean it is safe!!!!!! I would wait to see the crash test results. All in all, its still a very badass car, even if it is heavy and unproven as far as safety and reliability are concerned.

    She is getting a silver 300c like the one attached to this message. She wants Deep Dish 20's and some low profile tires.
