Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.
I typically drive with my windows open (habit from my smoking days). I'll wave or give a thumbs up to the sporty Subarus. We have a fairly tight-knit, active local club, so most of us know each other. We'll sometimes end up grabbing a beer if going the same direction.
I don't discriminate. I give a thumbs up to any nice cars. Many of the old muscle cars will reply with a WTF? look, but I've gotten returns from Evos, Zs, Lotus',Ferraris, Lambos, etc.
When I go to the track (i.e. Bandimere), not only do I go to gawk at all of the nice classics and muscles, but also at the good ol WRX and STI community. I appreciate all cars, just some more than others.

Fellow subie owners get a wave as I said before, but with other manufacturers I'm like a roman emperor...thumbs up for nice cars, thumbs down for poor driving.

I'm glad that there are other people still out there that cruise with open windows, even though they have air conditioning. I like open air, and will keep the windows down if the temps are between 45 and 90'ish degrees. I also close them for meteor showers.

I try to drive with my windows down as much as possible. Upper 90s i may turn the a/c on occasionally just to offset to heat at stoplights. A couple weeks ago I was driving to MD and it was pouring rain, but at highway speeds the rain wasnt really coming in, so I had all 4 windows all the way down

"It's not turbo-lag, it's foreplay"
I am of the newest gen, and I wave to all sporty Subies, even the RS drivers.
I generally see at least one WRX or STi every day I leave the house (not counting mine). There are a lot of them around here. In the last 18 months of owning, can only remember 3 or 4 WRX/STi drivers not waving back.....one of them being a member here who swears he did not see me when he was on his way to CF12.
The RS, LGT and FXT I only wave at if their car looks like they have pride in it. There are quite a few of them in the area, many are driven by non-car people. When I do wave, most LGT wave back, not many FXT drivers wave back though. The RS crowd is a bit harder to read....only a few wave back, most seem to look at you like they are saying 'Its a RS not a WRX jagoff', but I don't care.
I normally have the windows down.....if it is 90ish, the windows are down and the ac is on (while in town with all the stop and go).....and I too drove last week with the windows down in the rain.....I have even found that over about 40 you can have the sunroof open in the rain and not have any water get in

With every day being between 90 and 100º where I live, I've barely used the windows on my new car! A/C is on all the time unless I'm driving home late at night. But then my comfortable temperature is 55º. Over 70º and I'm sweating. I long for winter...
I generally wave a other wrxs/stis. I'd say most who see me, respond. I know I've occasionally failed to wave back to a fellow subie owner. Usually its on a four lane at faster speeds and I don't see them til there right beside me with their hand out the window. Hope I'm not giving the Stinkeyes a bad rep.
I will say, recently I was considering buying an evo for awhile (blasphemy, I know) and spent some time surfing the evo forums. For what ever reason, the suby community seems to have a better feel to it.
