    Female STi Owners

    I read over on IWSTI that 12% of 2013 STi purchasers were women. Presumably that statistic hasn't changed much in the past couple of years.

    Today I drove to lunch with a colleague. We got out of the car, and as I was reaching into the back seat to grab my purse, I heard my coworker say something to someone in the parking lot. I heard the word STi. I straightened up, locked the car, and turned to the guy talking. He was telling my coworker how cool my car was, and then he said, "OMG I can't believe it - I've never seen an STi driven by a ... a FEMALE."

    Now, I don't like the use of the word female as a noun, especially when one is talking about a human. But he was trying to compliment me, so I let that slide. He was going on and on about how cool it was, and even the woman he was with (who was getting into the driver's side of their M3) looked impressed.

    So my questions are: Are there any female STi owners on clubWRX? Do you ever see female owners of STis? Are we really that rare?

    TBH, Of all the WRX/STIs I see, so even broadening the criteria, I'd say < 5% have been women.

    Sarah, you probably saw my post on IWSTi. My neighbor six houses down just bought a 15 WRB STi, her previous car was an M3 so I was not surprised. She babys the bejesus out of it, as she did the Bimmer. Typical female. JK! A good example, on my commute home one day this week, I am ripping through some twisties, no traffic, then I come around a turn and there is a 15 STi sloooow rolling. I then get behind it at a light, and as we are going over the Willamette River, I look over and she gives me a big grin.
    Drive like hell, you will get there faster!

    i mean i have gone to plenty of car meets and car shows (normally ghetto ones sadly) and I never really see girls with good cars... if they do have a car it's usually a v6 'stang or a RS camaro...

    I think it's the whole "wrx/sti = stick" and most American females do not wanna drive stick... I don't mean that in a sexist way... I know a few girls who LOVE cars but think that only guys should drive stick... which I find silly but whatever...

    but yea I have NEVER seen a female driving a wrx or sti or anything... but I did see a REALLY attractive girl driving a BRZ last weekend... and it was stick... so that shocked me...

    Female STi Owners

    Well.. I actually know three female STi owners, and four WRX! So to me, I've seen more female (when it comes to the fifteen). But ironically, they are all 15s. I have a car IG where there Are a bunch of female driven WRX/STi's

    If there weren't any females with STIs, how would the men get them?

    Same here. A few weeks ago she asked why my car does not jerk when I downshift, she is now learning to rev match her Mini.
