Was at my cousins birthday party last night and literally every kid my age and younger was telling me / asking me about my car even though they had no idea what they're talking about lol. Some of my favorites were :

"Turbo cars don't have headers, just uppipe and downpipes"

"Yeah I work at a tranny shop. We put a 2j in one of these and **** Mann it flew" ( Kid is like 15 and pretty much everything was 2j 2j 2j 2j 2j )

I was parked in front of the house by the way, blocking the driveway, and the guys my age and older were sending everyone off the sidewalk ( drinking on sidewalk = cops rape party ). When they told me to move ( I was leaning against my car eating food ), they paused halfway through and asked "Who's car is this?!". When I told them it was mine they said "**** man I gotta give you props on this. Just because your car is nice AND you're family with Nikita, you can chill here. If you drink though, just go in the driveway"


Never before have I felt like such a king.

Also... I somewhat regret parking there. There were no spots

Was talking Subarus with a friend once and some random guy chimes in to tell me a story of when he borrowed his buddy's STI.

Haha then he ads "You know the ones with a V8 in them!"

Just went to a 4th of July party and a kid asked me how big my turbo was. I replied with, "just a little td04." He says, "yeah I could tell it isn't very big because I didn't hear a swoosh when you let off the gas."

Impreza does come from impressive so your friends joke is valid. Horrible, but valid.

My friend was in my car the other night and he pointed at my boost gauge and asked if it made it go faster.

With my clear-bra a co-worker said that the line looks like a big scratch and it would drive him crazy to see it every day. What makes this silly is that when he takes his car to the car wash every 2 month and gets the added "wax" cycle he says he just "waxed is car". He makes fun of me for how I maintain my car yet admits that my previous 9 year old WRX looked better than his 1 year old Civic.

So sad to see so many people treat their car as a consumable product that looks like crap in 3-4 years

I attend Wyotech and in every one of my classes, there's someone that tells me that my car isn't a WRX, that its just a regular impreza (I did a hood swap). I just give them my vin code and watch them look it up. I try to avoid talking too much about my car because most people think I'm full of **** when I tell them what I have done to it. It doesn't help that I haven't been able to really drive it yet, but soon...I may have to take some video reactions
