The reasoning here has always eluded me. Certainly the AWD makes the car handle better in the snow, but why do people "want" more snow? Do you find that driving in the snow is more fun? I'm clearly missing something here.

You know you have a wrx when in the "chain of food" you go from #75 to like #30

When after waiting 3 weeks for a part from japan you leave work earily and blow off picking the wife up from work to race to the post office then home to install it. So worth the silent treatment.

Would you rather have traffic or no traffic? No traffic cause its more fun. Same with snow. So yes, driving in the snow is awesome

Am I a bad father...?

You spend more time checking ur oil level and feed back and fine learning knock correction than u do just driving and enjoying the car.

When u ask for 93 at the gas station and then stare down the attendant till u make sure he hits the 93 button. Getting an accidental tank of 89 is never a good time. Lol

Whenever I head up to the jersey shore, I make sure I fill up in MD or DE so I don't have to let an attendant fill it up.

1. When you're stuck at work for 24 hours, but are happy because GT5 and NASIOC.

2. When you're friends are asking you why you're looking at parts for a car you don't own yet.

3. When you see a kid with a 2012 Camaro revving because new exhaust and you think "wait til i come through with my SPT"

4. When you're most likely going to drive 3 hours to a reputable dealer (Mastro) than go to crappy dealers.

5. When you're 5 months away from owning the car but you refuse to drive that auto civic anymore.

6. When you spent 8 hours reading this thread laughing and thinking "i'm gonna be just like these weirdos hahaha"

Yeah, I see what you're getting at, but mostly what I see in that video is lots of partially hidden curbs and the potential for hidden potholes waiting to snap off a wheel. But to each their own for sure, drift on if it suits you.
