    Levorg vs Legacy (2004-2009)

    Hi all I currently own an Outback and a Legacy. Both are 4th generation BP cars (so estate, 2003-2009 MY). The Outback has the 245BHP H6 engine, the Legacy has the 165BHP flat four. I was very curious how the Levorg stacks up against those cars and today I got to testdrive a 2020 Levorg with...

    Engine choice

    Thanks for asking your dealer. I was hoping he could get a set of TEIN with TüV or Goca, because price/quality is quite good. KW is quite expensive and I'm not sure if it would be wise to use Bilstein (depends what set they make for the Levorg).

    Oil leak around front diff. Any ideas?

    Could be that the dealer has done a drain/refill, but not replaced the washer...

    I meant 4 with eyesight (sorry). I'm considering importing one from Germany, but if I could source a low mileage (sub 20 000) car with eyesight which has the 1.6 in Belgium, I'd be all over it. Still, needs to have the right color (white, lapis blue, dark grey or black). Btw, did you have the...

    Engine choice

    Hi all Need some input on engine choice. In Europe, we got 2 engine options: 1.6DiT with 125kW / 170BHP and 250Nm 2.0i (N/A) with 110kW / 150BHP and 198Nm Recent cars all came with the 2.0 engine, the cars between 2015 and 2019 came with the 1.6. I've never spend this kind of money on any car...

    Bilstein B16 - anyone tried them?

    Hi all I'm eager to go out and testdrive a Levorg (in Europe all cars will be 1.6DIT cars), but the problems with the stock suspension everybody is talking about is putting me off. In Belgium, parts need to have TÜV (or GOCA) certificates in order to install them on a car, so options are...

    Hello from Belgium

    You can have tüv approved suspension and get goca paperwork. You'll need to pay 75€ to our great government and wait approx 2 weeks for them to make the paperwork. For my RX8 I will use tein with tüv and follow the procedure to obtain goca paperwork. But, when I looked at the tüv website...

    Hello from Belgium

    I had a quick look at Japanese brochures, and from the beginning, they state that the GT-S Levorg (so the high-end model) has Bilstein shocks. In the Australian Brochure, I couldn't find anything about this, but car review from 'down under' state that the SpecB has Bilstein suspension. In de EU...

    What's your Weekender or Project Car?

    When comparing it to my Outback H6, fuel consumption is quite ok... It has the factory oil metering pump, but I also premix the fuel... Btw, we all seem to have a very good taste in cars :o. Love the R34.

    What's your Weekender or Project Car?

    This is my weekend car. Bad quality phone picture is the only one I've got so it seems.

    Hello from Belgium

    I'm not sure about the Bilstein standard equipment. In Japan and Aus/NZ there was a 'specB', which - just as with the Legacy 'specB' come with bilstein shocks and altered suspension. The EU brochures say nothing about this, which would seem odd from a marketing point... The 1.6 was available in...

    Hello from Belgium

    Thanks for the info ! I was considering bilstein B6's all round to alter suspension, but the tein street basics could be a valid option (but it's a pain with the 'controle technique as you say). Bilstein B6's can be installed by yourself and you'll be completely legal. I don't know what...

    Hello from Belgium

    Bonjour Nico, merci pour le message. Je vais continuer en français afin que tout le monde nous comprend ;). The Outback and Forester are great cars, but I'm hoping the Levorg will deliver a new 'edge'. The Outback - altough quite fast an capable on AND offroad - is to much of a mix for me. It's...

    Hello from Belgium

    Hi all My name is Thomas and I live in Belgium (near Brussels). I do not own a Levorg (yet), but fell in love with them when I saw one in the flesh back in 2015. After a few French cars, a couple of Alfa Romeos, I finally switched to Japanese cars starting with an SG Forester, followed by an H6...
