LOL, it looks pink to me. I think that this color takes away from the WRC reputation that this car has. All it needs is a Local Motion stickerNJwrbT-WRX said:Its not pink, it is cherry blossom red, and I don't think it is "sissy". Get over it, does having a pink looking badge really attack your manhood that much?
The WRC car is prepped by Prodrive, not STi. Prodrive can pretty much do what they want to the car. A lot of the rally STi RA shells come in white, teams then paint the car whatever color they want. If they choose not to put cherry blossom red on the car, so be it. Also, some sponsors dictate the color of their advertising decals.ElDiablo said:I did not know that. Why the WRC car uses white and yellow logos?
So far most of the replies havent given you the benefit of the doubt. But then, coming onto a subaru board and calling STi sissy doesnt helpElDiablo said:I'm loking at blue STI but all of the logos are pink like for Barbie Why not use white like on WRC car?
I'm not calling STI sissy! Just the pink stickers are. I'm looking to get one very soon as I love the car. The wing I don't mind but if the stickers can go than this is great!nathansvt said:So far most of the replies havent given you the benefit of the doubt.

Still, the STi does attract people from other walks of life and not just the Subaru die-hards (which IMHO is a good thing, see also Hot Rod Mag's article).
I have a white STi, and it's my first Subaru. Hell, until a co-worker bought a WRX I had no idea FHI had a car division although I was vaguely aware that some Japanese company made the Outback.
The STi is a blast, and I'd highly recommend picking one up for days when the Viper is a bit too much (rain, snow, etc). It will take some getting used to since there's a torque deficit down low, but the handling is great and is much kinder than the Viper.
Oh, and you can remove the pink stuff. I've seen replacement stickers in blue or you can just go the stealth route and take them all off. I was planning a wing-ectomy for mine but I think the holes in the trunk will be more of an eyesore than the wing.
I'm not hiding anything. My wife told me that those pink stickers made the car look like a Barbie car.LukeWRX said:Oh, and I dont want to come off mean or anything.
But ElDiablo, why are you so defensive of your manhood? Do you honestly feel people will consider you/your car sissy because of the pink STi badges. This, taken together with the fact that you currently drive a viper lends one to the assumption that you are maybe trying to create a masculine barrier around yourself, hiding something???
It's just your wife's subtle attempt at emasculation. She knows that if it comes to unloading the Viper, she will lose her means of trolling for hot guys, leaving her interminably stuck with you.ElDiablo said:I'm not hiding anything.
