    There's an elaborate, technical phrase for the portion of your life spent deliberating over what people will think of your style and your choices: "Wasted Time".

    Buy the car that suits your lifestyle/budget, and if you have enthusiast leanings, seems to you to be fun to drive. There will be disapprovers regardless of what you choose.

    I'm 45 & I just got an '11 4 door... My last car was an '03 Mazda 6S Sport. I drove that thing harder than most people that were "less mature" than I was & they were in "sportier" cars...

    lol @ stepping out in a suit. People here even judge you if you ride a bike! Dude, I'm just going to school lol

    I started this thread between I am stuck between several cars, with some being more "sophisticated" (read douchey) than others. Incidentally, they are also more expensive so I will have to go used. The car will be driven hard so it's not just all for show, but needs to be reliable enough to be a daily driver and cheap enough so that I'm not spending $1000 a month on repairs. occasional mod expenses are fine though

    Get the subaru It'll save you when it counts and the other snobs are walking or paying tremendous amounts of money to keep their douchemobiles running.

    I also live in southern california, and while i am well out of my college times, i can say, driving around, i dont really get any attention, positive or negative. the only people who react to my car are people who know about cars.

    i think you should just tint your windows so no one can perceive anything in the car at all

    on a lighter note, when i told my mom that i was thinking about buying a subaru, she asked me with a straight face if i was a lesbian. and now she calls my car the lesbaru, as in "oh you and your wife are going out of town for the weekend? what are you going to drive, your lesbaru?" followed by some giggling and my dad laughing in the background.

    you should not care what other people think about you drive, unless you drive a volkswagen cabriolet, then you should care.

    I don't think anyone around here really knows what the wrx/sti is... it's not like many people know about it. It seems like people entirely go by what looks fastest, etc. (at least in my generation). I've gotten no particular looks or anything other than friendly waves and such from subie owners.

    Every time I'm driving around my gf and she sees a corvette, it's "sexy car". It's not her in particular, but everyone - they couldn't care less what was under the hood - a lambo or porsche with a 1.5l NA would still be the best car in the world.

    And that's why there are so many riced civics and tC's around.

    I will not let myself get into that - hey, if you recognize my car for what it is, you'll probably recognize me for who I am, and if not, what does it matter to me?

    As a hip 50 year old who drives a nice little street rocket, who's age and experience allows him to do so without his insurance rates going up by so much as a nickel.

    Automotive brand recognition is a funny thing, isn't it? Most of my "in-real-life" friends are not car enthusiasts..the idea that my Subaru wagon could destroy a Porsche 924 in a quarter mile race wouldn't seem believable to them..."But it's a Porsche.."

    a 1.5 NA lambo or Porsche would still make a hot girl even hotter, as long as it's stick shift.
