I remember too when Dodge released the Nitro, they dubbed in V8 sounds to make it look burlier

^ Wow. I didn't know they were allowed to do that.

I'll think twice when I see a car commercial and think to myself "that car sounds good!" now.

Wife: Yes.
Co-Worker: Oh, well he should have gotten an STi.
Wife: Actually, it is an STi.
Co-Worker: Really? It didn't look like one. Does it have twin turbos?
Wife: No.
Co-Worker: So it's stock then?
Wife: No, it's definitely not stock.
Co-Worker: What does it make, like 250whp?
Wife: No, over 400.
Co-Worker: No it doesn't. It doesn't have twin turbos.
Wife: He has dyno sheets.
Co-Worker: Well it probably takes forever to spool with only one turbo.
Wife: Seriously.... it makes boost almost instantly, there isn't a wait.

Co-Worker got mad and walked away and apparently still doesn't believe my car makes more than 250whp because it didn't have twin turbos.
Does your wife have a sister?

Totally awesome wife. You lucky bastard.

brother came down to visit me...
Brother: nice whip is it turbo?
me: yep a couple things done too
brother: let me take it down the road
me:.. um ok -hands keys over-
he did a second gear pull and stopped once we got into 4th
brother: wow i cant believe you can handle this car!
(bless his heart he owned 3 civics all na/automagic)
me: yea its ok but its still slow compared to the others
so he went back up north and gives me a call a few days later and says..
so i went to a subaru dealer and looked at the 2011 sti they wanted 40k and its got twin turbos its pretty sweet and it says it makes 500hp stock
:me.. um subaru doesnt make it twin turbo from factory?
him: yes they do you dont know what your talking about
... so ive been in the subaru game for around 2 years now and hes never owned one other then in his juiced game..he knows more then me i guess

Right before me and some friends (7 total) went for a cruise through backroads, we stopped for gas. Gas stations are always prone to some intellectual people. First I'll list the cars because it won't make sense if I don't. 04 wrx stg2, 2010 wrx stg2, 07wrx stock, 07 sti heavily modded, 05 sti slightly modded, me in my 02 wrx wagon stg2, and our newest member in his stock 2.5rs coupe.

Me and the 07 sti park right in front of the door while our friends get gas and these 2 bright gentlemen start to have a nice convo.

kid1:aye, which one do you think is the fastest?
kid2:that coupe over there looks pretty fast.
kid1:who do you think is the slowest?
kid2:gotta be the wagon.

EVO fails are accepted here. Close enough...

And that is quite the failure, maybe he was just trying to be nice?

I came out of the grocery store to find this on my window. It was just a normal peel and stick sticker. Luckily it wasn't on for long so it didn't leave any residue. There weren't any other flyers or stickers on other cars. Just mine , bet they thought they were reeeeaaal funny putting it on.

Thanks man. And no she doesn't haha.

From being with me she's learned a good amount about automotive and then her older brother and father are both car enthusiasts too so it's pretty nice.

Which is true.. I hardly ever see any 2011 sedans! Or maybe I just don't get out much. Working 7 days a week and no time to have fun with my Subie..

Paint the braces in a matte black and it would make a huge difference.
