How could they? I mean... Our 2.5 sure does have a great sound when compared to many other non turbo I4 cars, but nothing like a V8....

Happened last semester at FJC. I was finding a parking spot when a group of students were passing my car.

Student : Hey man, nice Subaru.

Me : Thanks.

Student : Yeah, but evo's are better, and i bet an evo can beat you in a race.

Me : Cool, and probably.

Student : I'm just kidding man, Subaru's are better.

I usually like to reply with "Well, cooler depends on the person... so it could be cooler... but sure, it would beat me in a race, I just like my car better."

Most non-troll / non-broskis are somewhat taken aback a bit by the fact that I'm willing to accept other cars can be better than mine - like it matters anyway.

Ya...it's not like we are the Civic group. It seems that 85%+ of the civic community think their car is a Bugatti or something. A good friend of my parents has a 2006 Viper SRT-10 and we were talking and he asked if I thought his Viper could beat my STI...

I looked at him and said "I ****ing hope so! You paid over $100,000 for the stupid thing and I paid just over $40,000". He just stopped and thought about it for a minute.

Had a guy in an RSX come up beside me, he looked back and smiled. Kinda paced for a little until I couldn't handle the awkwardness! Dropped a gear and passed him up, yet he kept on me. We eventually came side to side at a stop light and....

Mr. RSX - Hey! Are you a gear heard or did you get that car just because it's badass?
Me - Wha? *couldn't hear him*
Mr. RSX - The car, are you a gear head kind of guy...or just get the car because it's badass?
Me - Ehhh, well kinda both.
Mr. RSX - Nice, so does Subaru still use the EJ *something something something*?!
Me - Sure? *light turns green*
Mr. RSX - Cool man! Enjoy the car!

Kinda ashamed I didn't understand what he was talking about with the motor. I mean, I know about the motor...just not down to the exact model number haha. Seemed like an alright guy, got a compliment out of it!

i've got a good one.. a few days after i got my 02 wrx wagon, i took my friend for a spin. we get back to my house, and he tells me its pretty quick, but i should have got a real wrx
me- "you mean an sti?"
him- "no, just a real wrx"
me- "you mean the sedan?"
him- "no, just the real wrx"

finally he says something about should have gotten a turbo

me- "it has a turbo, it just doesn't have a boost gauge..."
him- "you CANT have a turbo without a boost gauge! maybe the previous owner rigged a turbo in there, but you should have gotten the real wrx.."

we saw our friend whos a serious gearhead a week later who obviously affirmed what i had said... but to this day i have NO idea what a 'real wrx' is

I think he was under the assumption the a "real WRX" was a Bugatti Veyron? It has 4 turbos. Must be what he thought...must be
