Yes, yes, it is.

But I'm kinda surprised you didn't notice the car in the foreground of the picture... this being a Subaru forum, after all.

Oh, yeah. Thats pretty cool too. :wink:
I'd give my left two nuts to drive either, but the GT-R is more rare.
Less rare than a RHD 20K BE true B4 RSK (in the US), though.

The GT-R is not the rarest car in that picture...

... and I'm not talking about my car either.

Update:

I had to replace my tires for a couple reasons... first, I had this puncture on the edge of the sidewall (it actually happened about 3k miles after I got the tires; I was so pissed) that I plugged 3 times until it finally got to the point where it would lose all air pressure overnight...

Image

... plus the car began pulling to the left even after I had an alignment done, and I've just gotten sick and tired of Dunlop tires. I wasn't too happy about the prospect of replacing four tires with 6/32nds tread left on them, but I got a set of Kumho Ecsta LE summer tires for a really good price, and Kumho is also currently offering a $50 mail-in rebate on a set of four tires.

Image

However, that was not enough appeasement for the Subaru gods, who saw fit to cause my pumpkin cover to crack:

Image

I started having seepage, so I put Teflon tape on the drain plug hoping that would fix it, and as I was tightening it, I heard it crack. The drain plug never felt like it was getting any tighter, so I think it was weakened, which I also think is really why it was seeping.

So I got a new one (thankfully, all R160 pumpkin covers are the same, so I could have even used one from a Datsun 510 if I wanted to), and had an absolutely wonderful time dropping the rear diff to replace it.

Image

Fixed.

I've had good luck with Kumho tires. I'm surprised about the Dunlops, though. I've only heard good things about them. Which model was it?

They were Dunlop Direzza DZ101s. Now I've got friends who like the Z1 Star Specs for autocross and stuff like that, who don't care how completely unliveable they are as DD tires. But I don't race my car, so I'd rather sacrifice some grip in the interest of longevity and the ability to hear myself think.

I must be getting old.

But not so old that I can't engage in at least a little mischief...

I still haven't boarded that bandwagon. I've technically owned four subarus if you include the donor & 06 wagon.

They don't make one of the badges to go high enough for all the subarus I've owned lol, if you included parts cars and everything over the years I'm at 27.

I'm surprised I never posted this.

Up until the new Mercedes GLK250 Bluetec, the Subaru Legacy was (as best I know through pretty extensive research) the only mass-produced car in the world to ever have a twin-turbo 4-cylinder.

Every other twin-turbo car for sale to the public besides these two has had 6 cylinders or more.

That's some interesting info. Although I don't think a twin turbo FD RX-7 counts as having 6 or more cylinders ;)

Or maybe after, and I'm just that awesome of a detailer!

Okay, not really. That was the first day I got it. The off-road hoonage took place the next day :-D

Haha, nice!

Did you get any video of the off-road hoonage? Or would that be evidence they could hold against you ;)

Maybe its just the pic angle, but new Camrys are Huge. That is a Camry, right?
Anyway, B4 looks great!, especially at night.
