skatin707: That was a nice metaphor.. haha. But yeah. This AMG looked ridiculous. The calipers must have been as tall as the rotors and the machine work on them looked unreal.
On-topic- Not sure if I posted but a guy from work ask if I had fender work done because he liked how they looked a little stretched. I said: 'Nope. All factory '

I think it's clear he's full of crap.
Exactly, couldn't of said it better.

was working on my buddys 20th aniversary GTI (silicone vac lines)... halfway thru the install we needed some bandclamps that he had forgotten. so i had him take my car the .25 miles back to his place to grab them becuase he just had knee surgery.

i have fully built suspension (cusco, whiteline, perrin, kartboy, tein) and well done exhaust (MS3, randomtech dual highflow cats, stromung mid/backbox)

as soon as he gets back, he raves that everytime he gets in my car it makes him want a subaru more and more... i've taken him out on backroads more than once

maybe not that funny, but i thought i'd share.
i drive a wrx, and work on it in the alley. my neighbor (really nice guy) asked me what kind of car it is after he heard the exhaust grumbling and growling. i told him a subaru impreza wrx. every time we see each other he, and now his kids also, say "whats up wsx?" i corrected him once, and then gave up...everday, "my man wsx!"

Similar! The car engine cannot run upside down but can with a few mods.

Clean STI. Does it sound that mean from the factory, or do you have something done to it?

Just an AMS catback.
