    You Know You're a WRX Owner When...

    A collection of musings from our fellow WRX brethren who have posted on the NET about owning a WRX:

    You Know You're a WRX Owner When...
    You know the difference between "boxster" and "boxer"
    You have done the 'upgrade to STi' financial calculation a million times (and your spouse has shot you down every time)
    You got flamed on your forum because your first post was "What BOV and CAI should I get?"
    You stare down your shifter for a good 30 seconds before attempting to go into reverse...and end up grinding anyway
    You go to sleep thinking about your next mod
    You can spot a hood scoop 500 feet away
    You drive thru your friend's front lawn before driving up their rock covered driveway
    You hate to turn on the a/c and defroster
    You have a favorite on-ramp!!!
    You don't dread going to work cause you get to drive your WRX there
    You buy a WRX instead of an STi to save money, and then spend $7000 on mods
    You think there's something wrong with your WRX, and you refer to web forums before taking it to the mechanic/dealer
    You drive around with no music just so you can hear the turbo and exhaust
    You eat at a fast food restaurant and sit by a window so you can see your WRX
    You see another WRX and park by it just to make it look like its a group thing
    You look more at the tach than the speedo
    You bring your WRX in for routine service and you refuse to let it out of your sight
    You have a dog name Scoobie

    HAVE YOU HAD YOUR WRX TODAY!

    You intentionally catch the red light at a major 4 way intersection to enjoy the looks your WRX gets

    Your have fun keeping up with another sports car that costs twice as much as your WRX, staying glued to it's bumper, and get pulled over. You tell the COP you weren't racing, you were drafting to get some better MPG out of your WRX

    You look for excuses to take back roads

    You are more excited than your kids that its going to snow

    You think that this will be the last Mod I'll want

    You know a desirable design feature of a aftermarket exhaust is to drone out your GF's non stop talking

    You pull into the dealership just to talk to the parts manager

    You walk around your WRX 3 times before you get in

    Your hood scoop catches a bird (LMAO on this one)

    You see an empty parking lot and wonder if its wide enough to do donuts

    You know curbs, road dips, and speed bumps are your worst enemy

    You swear that you had a lot more gas the day before

    You make your GF repeat "Subaru WRX" just to make sure she can accurately brag about your car if your not around

    You find a tunnel and spend twenty minutes going back and forth through it with a huge grin on your face

    You get used to mothers protecting their children when they see and hear your WRX coming, no matter how slow you drive

    You spend most of your day at work reading ClubWRX threads

    I dunno, most of that stuff is asshattery. I, for one, enjoy the car, but I don't typically brag about it, or try to draw attention to myself. The car is a cop magnet as it is, I am diligent to not add to that image. If I wanted attention, I'd park a howitzer in the driveway.
