I'm so glad to see someone who isn't desperately clinging to Pluto. However, I'd always put my money on Mercury. ;-)

Sir, Uranus is too wide and vast to be mentioned and explored. Mankind will rape it.

After installing a catless tbe, my buddies and I took the car to some vacant, dusty lot in the mountains near my house to hear what we had done. I had the car in neutral and gave it a couple revs while I sat there, not moving. An officer I hadn't noticed that was parked in the back corner of the lot switches on his lights and pulls up to us. I turned the car off and sat there as he got out and approached my window.

Officer: You kids are going to fall off a cliff driving like that.
Me: (puzzled and unsure what to say since we weren't actually moving when he saw/heard us)
Officer: Why is your car so loud?
Me: uhm.. I took the silencer out of the exhaust.
Officer: (Thinking and looking at me skeptically)
Me: I can show you where it is on your car, I can pull yours out and it would sound the same too!! Want to see?? (obviously bluffing and really hoping the guy knew nothing about cars)
Officer proceeds to pull out his flashlight and walk to the back of the car. As he begins to bend over to look underneath he sees the Subaru logo on the hatch and says to his partner, "Oh, it's a Subaru!"
He comes back to the window and says again, this time to me, "It's a Subaru!"
Me: (puzzled and unsure what to say)
Officer: Have a good night

If you've been in one of those TL's you know it doesn't feel like 305 hp.. Anyhow, that's my story. I found it amusing at the time.
The 305hp acura TLs trap just as fast as your still does in the quarter, so yeah. Its just as fast as your car.

Plus, they are pretty similar spec wise. Both have a six-speed and AWD. The TL does have an added 600 lbs according to the webs so that might've been where you'd feel a little sluggish up front. Plus, they're ugly.

Not so much funny as it is typical of a 22 year old racer wannabe kid

"why didn't you get the Sti"

Not wanting to get in to a while discussion on it I simply said "I didn't want to spend $10K more for a car that's slower from 0-60" He just stared blankly.

Please this was not meant to debate on this thread about the Sti build.

Typical question and I don't blame you for your answer. 100% chance he'd have no idea what you were talking about if you even started talking about DCCDs and what not.
