Passed a 2002/3 Black WRX going North on Finley road in Lombard today at approximately 6 p.m. Gave me a nice "rock on" gesture as I waved his way. He also has a DC Shoe Company sticker on the rear window. Also, is there a local meetup spot for Subie's other than Schaumburg?
Hoffman Estates representin' Got an '04 Blue WRX...stock for now.
Nice. I work in Schaumburg, so if you see an UGM 07 tr cruising around... now you know! I just moved up to Lombard from Indiana. Are there any good twisties around here at all? I'm guessing i'll have to drive up to Wisky for those...

For those of you in our area running various exhaust mods (headers, downpipes, TBEs, etc.), are you catching any flak from the local authorities for exhaust noise levels? If so, what village(s) hassled you?
Follow-up questions for those with less than the original number of cats, are you having any problems passing our Chicago Metro area emissions tests via OBDII? Do they ever look at an obviously highly modded car and question their OBDII results and then do a visual or tailpipe gas test?
Anyone ever change their exhaust back to stock or to another system due to problems with the local authorities or the IL emissions test failure?
I have had no issues with cops and exhaust.
And btw, have you guys shown up to the Thursday meets? It really isnt as bad as some think. There are some decent cars, but its a good place to meet people and most of the people I have met there are really cool.
Dont let the SN fool you, my car is black.
