You may want to seriously think about what youre saying before you post again. Youre making quite the fool of yourself.
I'm not sure what "strickter" is, but I know many people who have gotten DUI's and not lost their license.

Do you know what an apostrophe is? Just saying....

What am I wrong about? You keep saying that but about what? Just because it's a law in YOUR state, doesn't make it law in other states.

Like I said above...I've known plenty of people that have had DUI's and not lost their license....happens all the time!!! I never once said it wasn't strict, and never said I knew it all.

Ok, way to take that literally. But you're right, it does not happen ALL the time. BUT, it does happen nonetheless.

One of the lights has a couple of bubbles which i'm not happy about but oh well....gives the car some personality

Everything is relative. If you have people on your a$$ you should pull over to the right when you can. Sometimes you're the "tractor" if you're going 5 under the posted limit. The speed limit is as posted or with traffic. It's not as posted or with traffic only if traffic is going slower than the posted limit. To not pull over is not only rude but endangering others if you have people on your rear end and a wide open road in front of you, because some people who are driving at the mode don't take kindly and pass on the right, cut others off, etc.

If traffic is going 10 mph over the posted limit it is safer to go 10 over the posted limit than to go the posted limit. It's called platooning.

In some states if there are 5 or more cars behind you you have to pull over and let them by.

The speed limit, if safest, is determined by the 85th percentile speed of unobstructed traffic. That's traffic engineering, not political old men saying oohhh thaattttss toooo fastttt...

85th percentile is approximately one standard deviation above the mean, which is actually quite a cosmic relationship as it is where the bell curve turns from concave down to concave up.

The bottom line is if you are holding up traffic, get over to the right.

I've said this before...I agree with that! I was just saying that it's not a LAW in all states!

I have, twice actually, I am almost fifty and it hasn't changed my behavior yet. I consider myself a safe driver and would not put anyone at risk. I live in BFE and drive fast when I'm alone on wide open back roads. I'm willing to pay my penance.

I'm looking for some pencil beams to run on high beam and put them in the spot where my useless low beam lower lights are. Has anyone done that? What lights have you used?

You're talking about that center popout area? I personally wouldn't do it IMO.

Yes, I am referring to that area. I have a red reflector plate wuth leds in it. Almost as if set uo for a rear fog light. I was just thinking about cutting a hole in the black square. Or cutting a square hole and attaching the plate to the back of the panel. Then tapping into my foglight wiring.

Has anyone tried putting one of these strut tower braces on the 2012 Impreza? Will it fit?

Trying to get a decent video of my exhaust, but my camera makes the deep throaty rumble sound tinny. Any suggestions?

Also, anyone know of aftermarket spoilers for the 5-Door Impreza? I've never been crazy about the Subaru one. Looking for something that blends more into the existing lines on the rear hatch.

Yeah. Just like they are on the autobahn in Germany. Where they have no speed limit and a much lower death rate on their roads.

You might want to look into the autobahn not having a speed limit again. No longer universally true. The driving culture in Germany is also different..not a lot of left lane parking and people actually frequently check their rear views
