Not quite about my car but still funny.. A coworker was talking about how Hyundai had a commercial with a car drifting and all and how he didn't believe it so I told him about the gen and gen coupe. His response was, "well I bet they don't sell many over there with that law saying they cant make cars with over 280 horsepower."

So i respond with, "uhh i dunno what youre talking about but they have plenty of cars over there that have more."

"No seriously man its a law in japan. They cant have over 280hp"

I couldnt think of a proper response...

This was true until about 5-10 years ago. Most cars don't have over 275 at the wheels, and the very few that did were underrated from the factory.

I see companies advertise crank HP mostly, but maybe that's just what I see.

Friend: Is that your trans? Sounds like it's on it's way out.
Me: Nope, that's just the external wastegate.
Friend: Oh.......
Me: Explained what the ewg does.
Friend: That's sweet (he's not well versed in turbo apps but knows his way around an engine)

Sorry, I don't exaggerate my stories so this is a pretty boring post

After my driver re-training class some kid with a pick up goes up to my car and says:

"WOW that thing is nice!"
"Thanks"
"I bet that thing is RWD though..."
"Nope, it's AWD. It's a Subaru"
"No way! I didn't know Subarus made these kind of cars! I gotta get me one of these!"

It was that much funnier in person from the way he said everything.

My girlfriend bought me endlinks and said 'these are for you, but they're really for me'
Now I can put on my sway bar. She doesn't like the body roll in the corners.
