Question Anyone with an Impreza L want an RS hood?

ok...after much deliberation, I've decided to keep my car, but in an effort to reduce the attention from the cops, I'm going to replace my RS hood with an L hood. Does anyone want to trade? the L hood must be silver, and you must be local. I'll drive half the distance unless you're close enough.

I also want to trade my coupe spoiler for a sedan spoiler, same deal as the hood.

Jim

I will gladly trade you my sedan spoiler for your coupe spoiler. It's silver, also!

Question

I am totally lost here and excuse me for being (insensitive) but you are selling your car because the cops look at you? I do not quite understand what u mean by "reduce attention from the cops"? Are you getting pulled over *constantly* without committing any offense just because your car looks fast?
I am in Miami and I have never been pulled over cuz my car looks fast. Of course I drive rather slow myself. Same can be said when I was driving in Melbourne, Orlando, and Port Orange. Just asking questions here, I do not mean any disrespect.

I'll clarify a little bit. I have two major speeding tickets in this car. I've been pulled over a few times for going <5 miles an hour over the limit. No tickets for those. What I hate is that someone driving say a Taurus, would have been able to drive by at about 10 over, without getting pulled over. The impression that I get from it, is that my car looks fast, so I must be doing something wrong. The cops around here are generally dicks. Don't get me wrong, I was speeding, and did deserve the two big tickets. I don't want you all to think that I'm blaming that on the car. I just don't understand why the pull me over for going 5 over, when the guy in the suv is speeding, swerving through traffic, and talking on the cell phone gets away.

Originally, I was going to sell the car because I didn't know if I was going to be able to afford the insurance. I've decided now to wait and see what the insurance company says about everything, and go from there. In the meantime, I'm going to try and "blend" in a little more by getting rid of the hood scoops, tall spoiler, and sideskirts.

You less confused now? If not, I'll try and explain some more.

Jim

Wow, that got real long winded.

I know exactly what you mean. I grew up in Salem, it's all the same bunch of cops through to Radford.

I can vouch for you on this one. In VA that third ticket in 3 years usually means a suspension of your drivers license. Stupid VA laws, I'm glad I've got a South Carolina license now.

Thumbs up

Understood.
I do 5 over all the time and that has never happened to me. And I am guess you do not have a loud muffler.
Sorry to hear that, but I dont think you should have to change the look of your car. After all I dont hear Porsche guys saying "Oh no this car looks too fast, I will get pulled over; let me buy an SUV"

Nick, I've never been pulled over yet...knocking on wood...and my RS is red.
Although I've had a few close calls, like 90 in a 70 zone and illegal tint, south florida cops just don't seem to care. I guess there's plenty of crazies out there doing worse, so I think they do a good job. Anyway, I too have thought about swapping/selling my wing (coupe)because of unwanted attention, but I've already driven 7500+ miles since my purchase and just got back from a trip to DC and I've not been hassled yet. I do know that Virginia cops are real dorks...especially highway patrol. Yuk!

I can relate to what you're doing.
I've gone by cops in a Ford Taurus doing 15 over in residential areas, and they haven't flinched (I saw the radar gun pointed straight at me too). In the RS it's a totally different story though.

Have a Nice Day?

Pretty weird.
But I believe once you are not speeding then regardless if they pull you over or not then you have nothing to worry about.
Unless you are trying to get somewhere and cannot afford to wait around for a "routine" check.

Yeah but i can relate to what he is saying because i get followed by cops all the time everwhere i go because the car is flashy, sporty and red. they just follow me everwhere, like yesterday i left work and one followed me all the way to the cable place which he pulled in the parkinglot across the street and when i left there he followed me again all the way to my friends house when he drove by as i stopped to talk to my friend
