spotted a blue bug eye on Grand this morning around 7:45am. i was in the silver '05 heading downtown.
Also saw a WRX bug eye for sale at a dealership in the hood, by Grand and Kostner maybe (?). It's blue, FMIC, lowered and gold rims. I'll try to get a better look when i'm not running late to work.

I wonder how many pesos it cost? ( The Focus, not the bug eye.)

Well the England site is saying it starts at 24,999 GBP so when you covert that to pesos, it comes to 548086.91. Sounds a bit expensive.

I see that wrx, also, every day during my drive from work. Dealer on Grand and Kildare. It's been there for, maybe, couple months.

White, tinted 2011 WRX hatch getting onto 90 from 25 at 7:20PM. I was in the Orange FIT.
I was trying to get out of your way while we were merging, thankfully it was pretty empty on 90, but this little thing can only do so much, you know.

Spotted in South Elgin... a newer WRX parked next to mine at JuRin. Black. Dirty. Winter meat. Furthest spots. Coincidence? I think not.

Yep, I run my winters on steel and evidently this dude does too. Purely coincidence, but when I walked up I thought it was cool as hell. My wife was like whatever and jumped in.

Steelies FTW, although I feel kind of silly at this point with the lack of snow.

On another note, my mom called to tell me that someone stole my hub caps when she saw my car. I thought that was pretty funny.

Red taillight overlays? Probably me in my 2012. Don't remember your car, but my sincere apologies if I was driving like an asshat. Just crossed the 1000mi barrier and was trying to show some friends who are new to Subaru teh turbo powah!!1!1. I'm otherwise very considerate of people in slow cars, considering I used to drive in one until about a month ago

Didn't look at the lights. The car got on at 25, went to left lane, then got back in the right lane and got off on 59, if that helps.
You were driving fine, if it was you. I saw the closing in on the on ramp and tried to speed up to get out of the way. The car slowed down though and stayed back til we were both on 90.

Yep, that was me!

BTW, saw a '11 OBP WRX with tint and clear taillights heading north on Bartlett Rd between Schaumburg and Golf around noon. I was heading in the opposite direction and waved.
