555 was a sponsor for the rally team. I think it was a cigarette company.

Makes sense. I guess when you just bought your WRX about 4 months ago, some are not known.

It was an advertisment on the rally car, end of story.

But it's an interesting little coincidence that 555 in hex = 22b

As stated, the 555 was a sponsor of the Subaru World Rally Team during the run of the GC style cars. The fact that 555 in hexidecimal is 22b is a coincedence. The 22 was for the 2.2 L displacement on the motor and the b, I beleive (correct me if someone knows for sure) was for Bilstein suspension just as it is in, Legacy GT Spec. B

and progression is from Subaru to Ferrari Testarosa or 512BB. Screw Porsches.
