Got revved on twice last nite by a pretty nice evo,and a ****bucket gti. I just laughed. Wouldnt matter if it was a murcielago,Im a firefighter/medic. I dont street race period. I think i will get a bumper sticker made up with that in bold red letters.

But too add to the thread.


When youre driving and an officer is sitting in the most inconvenient spot to pull out and ticket you,and you know in your head that he would have to be crazy to try and pull you over,but you're still checking your rear view for like 2 miles. That also happened to me last nite ha.

When you take your girlfriend (and subie) out to the nearest big city for a date. And an Evo and civic both try to race you. She looks at you and says "YOU'D BETTER NOT!"😓

Seems to happen every time.

They were nice enough to give me a wave though.

You just gotta laugh at em. And this one looked like it was from 1912.
It was a good time even though I couldn't toy with them.

........your dog is sitting in the house and only lifts his head and acknowledges cars with exhausts that are subarus. lol He knows when I am home because of the sound of my car, so when I am sitting with him and one passes by, he lifts his head and looks like he is thinking "who the hell is in your car"

My dogs always freak out when the driver of the Subaru around the corner comes home, even if I'm sitting right there! His exhaust is louder.

Just got my wrx recently. Hopefully I'll get to wave/subie hi with some of you guys haha.

When you're far ahead of everyone after a red light even though you just barely tap the throttle.

It takes getting used to. My whole break in period I felt like everyone in front of me was going sooooo slow when taking off from a stop light. Now I'm stage 2 and I've gotten used to it. The clutch feel improves as you break it in too, was way to soft for me at first.

This above exactly! Just bought an '07 STI and there's nothing like hearing the sound of this engine...

I hope so. The clutch catches really high up then first week of the car. lately I noticed it is catching a bit lower to mid way now. I just barely got used to the clutch catching almost all the way full release lol. Being a newb stick driver also doesn't help.

I'd go ahead an buy a new clutch, 3of the 4 people I know that bought a wrx/Sti with minimal or no experience with driving standards burnt a clutch within the first 9 months. One of those geniuses goes through a clutch a year/ year and a half because he is a bad driver though.
