Guy says "My buddy has a Mazdaspeed 3 with one it's fast too."

At that point I ignored the guy and left. It's always fun hearing the things people say who don't know our cars, or us.

Sounds like a guy that was talking to me on black ops.

Told me he's got an S4 with 420wtq/hp. I played along.

The thing is. It is actually not that hard to make 420 whp/wtq on a S4. Just an intake exhaust and tune and you are pretty much there. Rs4's stock put down 420hp flywheel, but those are a different story.

So I was at a gas station and parked by the pumps.

When I came out an older guy with an AMG Mercedes sedan was filling up and started talking some s**t.

Him: "That thing turbo?" (in a self righteous tone)

Me: "No" (explained the lack of turbo GC's in US)

Him: "Oh, so I'd smoke ya on the backroads!"

Me: "Ehh I don't know, you might have a hard time in the corners with your obese trophy car. And I drive a manual"

Him: "Pshh, driving a manual is like wiping your own ass when you don't have to."

Me: "Actually driving a manual is like me screwing your wife without the help of Viagra."

He then became speechless, returned the nozzle, and drove away.

Sorry bout that, Viagra man.

I pulled up to a red light an there's a guy on the corner with a sign for a place going out of business and he's shouting,

"Turn here! Place is going out of business! Buy all our furniture! Turn here!" On and on. So I revved my motor at him. He stops for a moment, tries to shout about the business some more and he's like,

"Man, I can't even talk now." I got a kick out of it.

Had to give the same coworker a ride home tonight. Pulling away from a stop light:

Him: "Man this thing just sounds powerful" (100% serious)

Me:

Besides a few suspension and exterior modifications, my car is a stock Impreza L. 2.2L n/a, 13 year old engine, with rusting headers apparently sounds powerful.

Non "car people" make me smile sometimes.

My friend had a 1993 Impreza 1.8l front wheel drive with a custom catback that sounded soooo good, probably better than a WRX or STi

It sounds like the guy is saying his buddy's MS3 is also tuned with with an accessport.

...but I don't have an exhaust that would sound "powerful". It's not stock, but everything after the cats are just a newer piping, and the headers are literally rusting away, lol.

That's why I was

I had a guy at NAPA go off on me for having a fumoto oil valve. He got seriously angry that I would even consider using one.

Speaking of NAPA, I went in asking if the had a cv axle cuz my boot tore. He looked at me with a big smirk and asked me, "Damn bro what have you been doing? Burnouts?" I said "nah, its kind of hard to do burnouts with AWD.". Then he said something about stop racing so hard. Thought it was funny cuz idk how a torn boot would relate to that.

The boots on my A4 were always tearing, and I sure as hell wasn't doing burnouts with only 190 HP.

I hear of these situations a lot. People take the "appreciate and enjoy what you have" scenario and take it to a whole different level to where it's just arrogance.

"I have this 1992 Honda with this old exhaust I made in high school shop class and I think it sounds better than an F1 car honestly."
