    Hi Folks,

    Can someone please tell me the pluses and minuses of owing one or the other!

    I have been recently looking at purchasing a Legnum as everyone knows however I have seen some Stagea's that would be more practicle for me due to the additional size.:eek:

    I have noticed the price of Legnum's creeping up so I am getting close to hitting my budget lid.:(

    If this continues on with the prices I will be forced to lower the ride put some king springs on the MPV (2001), some 17's sway bars and an induction kit!:rolleyes:

    HELP!

    Bob

    Bob, I don't know if you have seen this thread ...

    We are obviously all biased and think that the Legnums are superior to the Stageas, but if you check www.skylinesaustralia.com you will find the guys think the Stageas are better.

    The best advice I can give you is to drive both cars and see which one you like better.

    :D

    The boot on the Stagea's is a bit bigger sure, but if you're after a bit of extra performance then go with a Legnum. If you really want a big station wagon, go with a Commodore :)

    Aren't they about the same size as a Commodore wagon?

    What's the boot space in Chrysler 300C tourer like?

    EDIT: Holy SH1T Mark! That's the most violent way I've ever seen of someone trying to make something fit in their boot... :rolleyes:

    I guess it's a simple decision but don't let my meager words taint it... Pictures tell a thousand words....

    Now you could get a Legnum...

    And score this...

    Or you could get a Stagea...

    That bonnet is hot... Such a shame it would attract undue attention over here :(

    OMG dude that's an unfair comparison - is that the 260RS Stag? Oh comon, you've used the COOL one! That's hardly fair and impartial now is it?! And I thought you LIKED hanging around here, too... ;)

    Jessica Alba would fit in the Legnum, and the fat cow could be in a horse float that the legnum was towing

    Stagea v's Legnum

    Hey sold!

    Legnum it is what was I thinking! Bugger I dont want to be caught out dragging my girlfriend around in the back seat , boot, and hanging out of the rear window! :D:D:D

    I spoke to my mech yesterday and he said the Stagea is easily tuned for more power and parts are readily available than the Legnum however from talking to the boys in the club we can order parts from Mitsubishi if needed. And by the looks why would you get the box on wheels. I would like to know how they handle with that much wieght over the rear end?

    But I think I do prefer Jessica in the front seat! (Dont tell my missus).

    U don't even need to drive the stagea, the interior looks like its from the medieval ages ... especially the dash and center console.
    Stagea = slow R33
    Legnum = Big Evo

    Oh sure, there's a lot of potential with the StageA's, don't get me wrong. But even though there are parts to tune it (and plenty of know-how), it'll still cost a fair whack (without the front end conversion, which is purely cosmetic of course).

    The Legnums, on the other hand... you just know it's going to rock right out of the box :D

    +1 for post of the year. I can't stop laughing.
    The funny thing is you can expect whats coming, but you never would think its that bad.
    You may as well slap some wheels on her and you have your own Stagea.:p
    On the other hand is jessica alba, I better clean it up, lol.:p
