    Most of the time people pull up next to me and the conversation goes like this,

    "Hey guy, is that an STi?"

    "Nope, just a little WRX"

    "Oh right so its not even turbo (obvious lack of car knowledge), cos my Golf has 245 Hp i bet id have you (laughs to friends in car haha hehe)"

    "Yeah its kinda slow for the money really (I chuckle to myself)"

    (Que green light, 4 wheel chirp and 300+hp of Turbo spool and a small dot in the rear view that resembles a Golf)

    The end.

    I swear peoples car knowldge in Canada is terrible. At the end of the day everytime I get in my car it makes me smile, yes I would love an STi and one day im sure il have one but il have a lot of fun getting there.

    Then this will make you laugh, I had a guy pull up next to me in a Prelude with a stupid bodykit, he then asks me if my Accessport mounted on the dash is my MP3 player.

    Fool.

    That's halarious...

    Your above post resonated with me because I've been in that situation where they ask if my car is a STi (even though STi's come hatchback only) and I say no it's only a WRX - usually these are civic/integra/sentra owners tryin to do sr20det,k20 swaps LOL...

    I read up on ALL cars and their potential just to know what I could possibly going against..Mods and all...

    I don't care what people think of my car. The only thing that matters is how I feel behind the wheel--and I feel damn good in my Rex.

    Although, if a friend says it, I might be pressured to show them the light with a quick little test run.

    The setup was suppose to do 350hp @ 22psi easily. I only drove it for 2 months as my dad started a new job my mother made me sell it for this:

    My dad didn't have a car @ the time so my tubro'd se-r was the only car in the house, my mother wanted my dad to have a car that he can drive. I'm all for my parents - this is why I have the WRX now (my dads AWESOME 860 CREDIT score )
