I thought it meant World Rally Cross. X being the short term for cross, like in cross country, XC etc.

Like Scientology, your thetan level must be high enough before the secret will be revealed to you.

(And you have to pay a lot of money first...)

What does WRX stand for? WR stands for "World Rally", and "X" stands for the mathematical symbol for the unknown, that means its possibility is infinite. Many people also have other ideas what the "X" stands for, but this information comes from FHI/STi and was further confirmed by SOA.

The meaning of WRX may vary depending on the age of the driver.

If you're:

Less than 18 - WRX means you'll probably get yourself into some sort of trouble

19-26 - WRX means you're probably working hard to pay higher insurance rates, and have fun at the same time.

27-39 - WRX translates to a fun 4-door that I can put a child seat into easier.

40+ - WRX means you've still got 'it' and you aren't givin' it up. Hail to the 40+ y/o WRX owner!

Edited in an attempt to make better sense of my thoughts. I don't think it helped. Hopefully, most people will figure out what I was trying to say.
