I have gone to this McDonalds on many occasions with my last car but went there for the first time yesterday in the new STi.

Girl at cashier window: "Nice car, looks fast huh"
Me: "probably, its new, I haven't gotten on it yet"
Girl: "ah, well drive safe!"
Me: "I will, don't worry."

Never once before has anyone told me to drive safe in my other car lol

I had a VW salesman try to tell me that the new EOS was faster and handled better than my sti. I just laughed and said that its probably because they use better battery fluid. He just looked at me like

I get the "cute" comment a lot from girls
Or last week, one asked why I have "mama" on my steering wheel.

-"why did you get a wagon?"
-"so I can fit more rock climbing gear in it"

-"what are those stupid circles in your grill?"
-"train horns"
-"why?"
-lets just say I shut them up for good

Last week we were driving and I see a white TS wagon pull up behind me. I'm pretty sure he heard me as I was engine braking so when we stop he starts reving it up. I'm guessing it was an ebay muffler cuz it didn't sound that great. I'm like 'whatever' so I rev mine once, slowly. (I got a really deep sounding full exhaust) A second later I hear an insanely load rev coming from the side, it was an oldschool, giant chevy truck. We started laughing our asses off.

And finally, a story I'll never forget:
It was the first week I got my car, and 4 of us were driving to school. One of us was a big video game guy and he finds my front license plate on the floor (I didn't get the bracket for the front yet). It's the environmental plate so he asks how much I paid for it. I'm like, dunno, like $40 extra. He's like: "Why the **** would you do that?" and I answered "If there was one for video games then YOU'd probably donate". We started laughing so hard that I had to pull over. The guy didn't talk to me for a while, lol.

I get this alot;

" Ew... why are your wheels gold? "




I really don't know how to respond to these kinds of things

More cylinders=faster, remember? That's why a v10 Dodge Ram is faster than a liter bike. Learn the rules!

after hearing about it on the phone and expressing quite a bit of disdain for trading my 03 civic in, My dad saw the car for the first time a month after I got it.

My dad:

"can you turn the AWD off?"

Me:

"Why?"

So he sits in it asks some of the vital specs like power, safety, fuel economy, price, etc, he knows very little about cars but I told him my new 07 impreza was much safer than the civic, more powerful and a more reliable car. We go back into the house and he comes to me later.

"Can I drive it?"
"Can you drive stick?"
"No.... but you have warranty right?"
"It doesn't cover stupidity."
"Oh."



More recently, at a racing school, I'm sitting in my car waiting to follow our group out onto the track. An instructor hops in for a ride along.

"Is this car turbo?"
"Do you see a hood scoop like the WRXs over there?"

Another instructor points at a Legacy GT in our running group (WRX, LGT, 2.5i, Audi S4)

"Is that 4 wheel drive?"

3 subaru owners who don't know each other look at each other and laugh, then mumble together, "all wheel drive."

"You should turbo your car!" or
"Does this have a blow off valve? You should get a blow off valve"

I was working on my car today at school and I swear nearly 15 people said that

I was talking to my friend about by my brothers 02 wrx

My friend: Is the wrx the fast one?
Me: Nah
My friend: Ah, it's the slow one.
Me: Nah
My friend: Do you want me to buy the car, stop messing with me.
Me:

And the worst part is he still doesn't realize it's the middle model between the sti and regular impreza.

I haven't had too many funny/dumb phrases about my Subaru yet...funniest thing I got is some girl I knew asked me how I liked my "Sty"

I then said don't you mean S-T-I...

She tried to pronounce it as one syllable.
