Default Spotted in Southeast Michigan

Don't see too many of you out and about so thought I would start trying to keep track. Since I got my 2011 OBP WRX 5 dr two months ago I have only seen a few others on the road.

Weekend of the Woodward dream cruise saw a gray sedan on 75 south. Passed you going 90 from the on ramp then you drove by later when i was back to freeway speed. Badges deleted but replaced by an STI logo in the center of the trunk.

About two weeks ago got a wave from a WRB WRX at Livernois and Maple as I was waiting to pull out of Red Wagon Liquor Store. (running low on tequila)

Most recently, downtown near Wayne State University on Warren heading west. Traffic signals were out and I pulled up to a gray STI with wing and a nice sounding exhaust. We took off and switched lanes. I headed off to work at the DMC and maybe you went to the university. Why doesn't anyone in MI know what to do at a flashing red light?

Anyways, hope to hear from people near Detroit. See you guys out there.

Just subscribed to that thread, thanks for the heads-up. I am planning to make it out to the cruise in Commerce in the near future.

I'm around ann arbor everyday. I've seen a few gd stis around, not a ton of GRs, though.

I thought there used to be meets around novi, not sure about any of that anymore.

Saw a second gen black wrx hatch at Three Oaks Apts in Troy today. Was going to wave then realized I was in my wife's Honda Fit. Decided the driver might think I was a weirdo. Does anybody get waves from non Subaru drivers?

Sometimes when I'm driving with my fiancee in her Matrix, she decides to wave to the other Subies and I'll give her a funny look and then she'll remember we're in her car.

I'm always on Woodward during rush hour going to or from work so that's where I'll be spotted.

Subscribed. Looking forward to any meets as well. I'm in Belleville, but spend a lot of time in downtown Detroit, as well as on 94, up to Selfridge ANGB.

Only have a 2.5i for now, but that'll change soon... Hope to meet some of you guys!

I go from Big Beaver to the DMC on 75 most days. I will keep an eye out for you while trying not to merge into any racing motorcycles.

Played leapfrog with a blue WRX today, A pillar gauge pod, cf hood i think, your muffler looked like it was shaking a little. There was also a silver OBS in the same lanes heading north out of Detroit on 75 at 4 pm.

Got a nod today from a white STI sedan heading north on livernois between 15-16 mile. You had some sort of graphic on your driver door, not sure what it was. You were also being followed by a debadged black legacy with small spoiler.

I'm in the Clarkston area. I drive to Farmington Hills/Novi for work everyday. Somedays when I stay with my girl I'm out in St. Clair Shores. I've got a SGM 06' WRX w/ a white OAKOS windshield banner.... You can't miss me lol.

There are a few STi's and WRX's running around the Farmington Hills/Novi area.

Have any of you locals done red vinyl wraps on the new ugly taillights or know what local shop would be able to do it? Also any recs for window tinting near Troy?

Sun shade in troy does great window tint. A little more expensive but they did a great job. They said they could wrap tail lights if you bring the material. Ended up taking the tail light tint off because it ended up bubbling up on the curve. Go to them for tint only and you won't be dissapointed.
