    I came to this thread hoping, nay, dreaming that there might be someone else in the world with the same problem I have with my car...someone who could understand the pain...instead it is all just a joke

    Nobody has the problem you got. Sorry, but you said it first: only one subie with VW wiring, and you have it...
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    I stopped at TP Stage 3 (which is just a EBCS and tune above stage 2 I think, with some more supporting mods) - but winter in Worcester, MA sucks because they never plow the roads...ever (true story). I find that I can spin all 4 of my winter tires pretty much at will in 1st and 2nd (and even 3rd sometimes if it's wet out) gear, which helps the speeding issue - since I don't have traction on my sucky winters. I find going sideways through school zones really helps the speeding issue, though.

    I actually just bought a new motorcycle for commuting in decent weather, lol. We'll see how that goes.

    A girl I work with who has an 08 WRX mentioned to me last night that on her way home from work her dash lit up like a christmas tree and her blinkers won't work anymore...It is really cold up here though, so I am not sure if there is something to do with that, but it reminded me of reading your post.

    Sounds more to me like she hit limp mode and threw a CEL.

    It was my poor attempt at humor people and just a commentary on how fun the car is to drive. And you don't need to worry about me I've owned motorcycles that had nearly as much HP as my WRX. So I understand the consequences and realities at least as much as the next guy.

    I actually bought my STI because I can't ride my bike on the road for the same defective reason we're talking about here. Seems that once I get the bike to the track there are no issues...
    Good luck and keep the rubber side down!

    It's all good. The confusion comes in because it's not unusual for new folks to show up here, bragging about how legitimately dangerous they are in day-to-day traffic, and thinking that we'll award them a badge of honor.
