    I love the attention I get from my car

    Some guy in a Z28 asked me, "is that the new Neon?" I said, "why yes it is. Would you like to race." He laughed and said, "sure if you really want." We took off and I got to the next stop light. A few delayed seconds later he pulls up next to me, jaw dropped, and at a loss for words. I smiled, bid him a good night, and put my window up...priceless

    Yeah! I love the stares and questions I get about that. My favorite thing is when I park it in front of a building with all glass walls (BK or Chipotle are the best ). It'll still be running while I'm standing in line, and often some person will start looking at it. Then it turns off, and they look around as if they're being watched! Hilarious!

    BTW, dark tint, 17's and lowering springs will end the 'cute' comments. These things look really mean with an aggressive stance and meaty rubber. Well, sedans anyway

    Whilst I'm in the UK, my wife has been the sole driver of my WRX. Now take my word for it - my wife drives my car like a GRANDMA. The number of kids in Eclipses and Hondas who want to race her is innumerable. They rev on her at lights and then zoom off whilst my wife is TERRIFIED of putting her foot down. (I get daily reports from my wife on the status of my car) My wife's predicted 1/4 mile time in the WRX is approximately 2 mins 17 seconds.

    Mind you, all her female friends think the car is the shiznit, even if they have no idea what it is or even what it is capable of. Just wait till I get home and give all those girls a ride...

    ooer....

    Not....that.....kind.....of.....

    Nevermind.

    I get annoyed when people ask if it's turboed. But I do get alot of thumbs up and waves from other WRXers. The worst is when you're driving next to some guy with a WRX and he doesn't wave!

    I guess many Jeep owners are buying the WRX's now.

    I had one of my numerous female friends with me one time, and after a long trip of my spirited driving, she got out and looked at my car and said, "How much did it cost to trick out your Honda like that?"
