On the first weekend in May 2013, on a quiet country back road in the far north of NSW, there was this cow that ran out in front of a much loved MY07 XTL. The poor XTL had little to do but hit the cow, or swerve to save the cows life and sacrifice its own. Being a noble steed, the XTL decided the cows life was more valuable than its own.... :o

This turn of events meant that I could get myself behind the wheel of a 2011 metallic dark grey S-Edition :thumbs:

I take delivery tomorrow morning and I'm ecstatic!

I am planning on hitting the modding pretty quickly, which is going to be fun! :D

Sounds like you're on a mission
So if you hit the cow what do you think would have happened?

From other's experiences the dump from a Liberty GT from memory is the go as other products have issues clearing the 5 speed auto case. Do a search plenty of info around here..

Awesome, sad to hear about the other car but sounds like this is going to be one nice ride.
Also I think some guys fit the Liberty brakes?

Correct, big liberty brakes are pretty awesome.
Sometimes worth while financially, but of course brembo's will always be better :thumbs:

Looking at brake torque calculations you will see the LGT brakes are 2/3 of the way between 4 pots and Brembos. What this means is they are significantly better than 4 pots and only a little behind the Brembos. The LGT rears come out on top.

The big bonus for the LGT brakes is they fit under the S-Edition wheels and look stock to the untrained eye.

As others have mentioned, you will need a dump pipe to suit a Legacy GT with 5eat. I'm not sure who else has these but my Invidia I got from Dan fit no problems.

Good luck with it all.
