main reason you have heard of legacy's blowing up is because of lads driving the b**** off them and using unleaded 95. they need to be remapped to keep them reliable. Car runs so much better on a remap too. Ever since i got mine done the car is great. Who told you there are cheap to insure? They are in the same class as Evo's

ya dan's right, fools drivin the s@3! out of them and never gettin them mapped. any turbo car should be mapped for 95ron the min you get it.

they are a good bit cheaper on insurance then the like's of sti's and evo's. for some reason.

1100 on a b4 and 1500 on a evo. but thats just for me. b4's same to be the new pick for young drivers as the insurance companys will insure the on b4's and not evo's. if you where 23 and payin 1250 on a b4 you'd be gettin cheap insurance. well in my eye's anyway.

Oh i know it was cheap insurance when you look at €1700 for a 1.6levin and i have a clean licence, but some insurane companys quote unreal money for some cars and they get away with it.
From what i know of the B4's you MUST get them remapped, even at that cost a mint to run.
