So, I noticed ever since I started driving my '13 WR blue Sti on the roads, everyone thinks I have to be going 115 mph everywhere I go. Just tonight when I was heading back from spending an evening with my family out on the town, I was driving down the highway doing about 5+ the speed limit and moving general flow of traffic. Twice some a-hole drove right up on my rear bumper so close that I could no longer see their head lights. One was a dodge charger and the other was a newer accord.
Now, don't get me wrong, I do engage in rather "spirited" driving now and again. None of which is a problem for other drivers on the road. However, this particular evening I have my my wife and my 2 year old son in the back so I am not taking any chances. I just let my mirror dimmer do its job and ignored both. It was just really annoying.
On the other hand, I noticed that driving a WRX is like a secret code for other WRX drivers. I love the drive by waves or when I park in the parking lot away from other cars and I come back and my car is flanked by 2 other bad ass WRXs. It makes me feel great!
The parking lot thing happens quite often and is pretty sweet.
