    when you see wrx on the road what do you do?

    i'm a new owner of a 2011 wrx wrb hatch and i have noticed whenever i see other wrx they give this complimentary (kinda like bikers) gesture rather than wanting to race me, is this the same where you are?

    I know many/most of the owners in the area. Reactions include waves, beep of the horn, or even an impromptu beer or two.

    I'm in the SF Bay Area and see rex's pretty frequently. Usually give/ get a wave, head nod, or honk.

    One thing I have noticed though is that one rex in a parking lot causes a "moth to a flame effect". I stopped at the super wal mart the other day and parked towards the back of the lot, away from carts and other cars. When I came out 30 mins later (spent 5 mins looking for what I came for and 25 mins standing in line) the was a silver bugeye and a blue 07 sti parked on my left and right sides.

    I stuck around for a couple minutes to see if I could catch either of the owners but I figured they'd be stuck in line for a while and took off. thought that was kinda cool though.

    Nothing unusual.It has happened to me a lot.There is an Evo parked in the outer areas of the parking lot of the supermarket I go to(the owner must work there) and I always park next to it.

    The wave is common.. most scoobie owners are mature enough to keep the racing to the track. Some aren't.. but .. that is what it is.

    When I just bought my 03 wrx, everyone would always give a thumbs up in any subaru that would see you. Friendly group of car owners. Now that I moved on to a sti, and sold that as well and just drive an economy car (camry). When I see a Wrx or STI now, I proceed to unzip my pants and rub one off to old memories.
