+ 1 to 35
+1 to the gas cap thing >>> I can't believe someone else put that one down. I'm always so queer about my dangling gas cap.

I have a way to store the cap... on the GC it fits just fine on the door.

And yes 555 = 22B
555= British American Tobacco - sponsor in old days and recently until tobacco sponsorship was banned.

As for the coincidence, think of it this way... these cars (production/Gr N / WRC) are designed by engineers. Engineers have a pretty good say in what something can get called, especially if they are the ones to thank for the success. Take the Boeing 707- the angle of the wing has a angle that if you look on the Unit Circle of radian measure, and take that angle ( the decimal equiv) comes out to something close to 707 (poss 7.07 not sure) My calculus proff mentioned little trivia bit to us. Someone on here can elaborate I'm sure.

Depends on your setup. You can fix understeer very easily with a bit of suspension tweaking.

IMO, our FWD Hondas are a heck of a lot worse for understeer than my Legacy.

You know you own an impresa when you keep your finger on the cruise control so it does not rattle

(rattles have been mentioned, but darn cruise control is the worst ! )

you know you own an impresa when Gold is a color you would consider for your rims , and they are not daytons .

Nice list. Here's a few things I do:

- roll your windows down to make ingress/egress easier
- look at your car thinking, "how gorgeous" while other people look at your car and think, "how ugly"
- think that Subies and Porsches share a boxer "brotherhood"
- given up all hope on your paint job
- ... and don't care cuz you're going mud flinging anyways
- want a bigger FRONT sway bar to REDUCE understeer (well actually increase front grip)
- have no doubts, wagons are TEH COOLEST EV4R!
- happy and willing to put pink parts on your car
- thinks their B pillars could withstand an attack from Godzilla
- thinks you're in a subie brotherhood and wants to wave at every Subie that drives by
- when behind another subie, habitually recognizes the subie rear differential... like dogs sniffing each other's balls
- most often wants to drive the subie over the other cars in the family stable
- prays for rain
- prays for snow
- feels the need to put a pig sticker SOMEWHERE on the car, even if hidden
- and now pondering putting a DC sticker somewhere
- gives girls bonus points just for being a subie driver
- can't pass a dirt lot without feeling its siren call

I will say this, though. I just got a 2007 WRX. It has less understeer than my 2001 Impreza RS. It has less body roll, too. The steering is more responsive. The 2007 is a wagon, the 2001 was a coupe.

I had no rattles in the 2001.

My 2007 has one rattle. The glovebox. It's not loud and only does it a little. The noises don't bother me as long as I can identify them.

I'm finding with the wagon I fly "under the radar" so to speak. I'm ignored by "tuned" imports and even Subie owners, it seems. Oh well, I don't need validation. I'm just happy to have the car.

The other week in a post about 360's, I pointed out that I beat pretty much all of Auto Modellista with the 360+WRC engine swap. Easiest game ever once I figured that out.
