my opinion may be a little bias because i like the stock wrx wing better, but think of it this way. you are driving down the street and a toyota corolla passes..... you probably didnt even notice it.Spectre186 said:As some of you may know I own a 2004 WRX. I really want to get a STi wing (Im going for the rally car look ) but my dad has warned me against it saying that it is a HUGE ticket magnet. I wanted to ask you guys what you thought of this. Thanks!
i like that word boner-riffic!!!:rotfl:wonderspark said:There is no question about it - - you will attract more attention with the big wing. It isn't like you'll be ignored if you're speeding by a cop, but when he sees the big wing, he'll get boner-riffic about giving you a ticket that you might have otherwise been let go on.
PS. I say this based on my experience with all the state troopers I work with. They call my car "the street racer car," and "hey, that's not stock exhaust," etc. Good luck!
is a bumper sticker saying "i hate cops!" illegal?...i would so sport one of those jus for the reaction. then ill bust a granny-style driving mode when i see cops and laff as they cant do anything.wrxinfx said:yup, a big wing = having bumper sticker saying "I hate cops!"
Both will get you in a lot of trouble.
Like flies on sh!t brother. :tongue:Spectre186 said:As some of you may know I own a 2004 WRX. I really want to get a STi wing (Im going for the rally car look ) but my dad has warned me against it saying that it is a HUGE ticket magnet. I wanted to ask you guys what you thought of this. Thanks!
That's how it is here in Seattle. As long as I'm not thundering down the road, cops don't even look at me, despite how much attention my car gets.4 Banger said:Yea, the wing will bring you more unwanted attention, but I think it depends more on how the cops are where you live and how you drive. I've had a STi since Feb. and I havn't been pulled over once. *Knocks on wood* If you use your head, don't drive too fast, and have a decent radar dector I think you'll be fine.
LOL that's too funny (well, not the ticket part)! If I do get a ticket, which hopefully I don't, I would love to have that written on my report. Of course, "oversized scoop", would be kind of amusing too!~WRBlue'02 said:On my last ticket the phrase "oversized wing" was mentioned in the report.
