Time to retire the Defender from DD duties, because Operation Sensible Family Estate Car is complete! Pulled the trigger on a fully loaded 2005 Legacy R spec-B, complete with useless Prodrive stickers and electronically adjustable Tein coilovers .

It’s not perfect, but it’s an honest car with full service history, good bodywork and interior - and more importantly a very healthy flat 6 attached to a 6 speed manual. Happy.
