When normally you see an out of state driver and are like, "this guy doesnt know how to drive in NY" but then realize it's STI from PA and catch up to him and wave then together make holes for each other to get through traffic.

OT when you miss how easy changing spark plugs used to be.(unless you only have driven subaru)
^THIS. Even the flat-6 Porsches were easier to change plugs since they were slanted on the top rocker cover... and the twin-plug cars were still more accessible underneath than the number -ing four plug on my '05. A 3" extension on the socket is too long for the ratchet head to fit inside the frame rail, a 3/8" to 1/2" adapter on the 1/2"-drive is too short, so 3/8" to 1/2" then a 1/2" to 3/8"

FYI you can save an unlimited number of tunes/setups for each car you buy in Forza, so you don't have to buy the car again or modify it again for each class you want to race it. I probably have 15 setups saved for my 22B in Forza 4- It easily dominates as a RWD (-300 lbs) A class car on stock tires.
I didn't know you could do that in Forza 3, I'll have to remember that from now on, although it does look kind of cool to have various-colored Subies all sitting in the R3 and R2 sections

My 2 little boys come running out the front door as I pull in the driveway all excited and say EVERY TIME, "Daddy, I knew you were almost home because I could hear your exhaust from way far away!" (Puts a huge smile on my face every time too!)

When Co-workers ask about my car because there kids asked about it when they saw my "STi" and would not stop asking them questions about it. Also when there kids know more about the car then they do

One of our controllers told me:

-His 8 year old son = "I want one of those STi's when I grow up"
-Dad / Controller, thinking to himself (I do not even know what this "STi" is)

I just started doing this with the internship I had this summer. Would have to keep my door open and stick a foot out to push myself haha. This is with my Celica, which has cheap ricer exhaust cuz its all I could afford back in the day. My Subie is quieter but probably just as likely to wake my neighbors up, and I like my neighbors.

When you...
-HATE turbo bounce

-refuse to load economy mode map on your AP because you're paranoid about getting run up on by a Mustang and having 0 boost/power

-get nervous for your paint when people near your car with dangling keys

-politely taunt passing cops just for s**ts and giggles

If you have a wrx/sti, you must have experienced this at least ONCE; a lot of people just don't know the name of it. It's when you're in a low gear (usually), within the boost threshold, and you let off the throttle, the car kind of bounces from the high boost pressure. Ex...I could be going down a hill in 2nd gear, once I generate enough speed to get well into the boost threshold, the car will jolt a little bit for a couple seconds. It's kind of like the car's way of saying to shift up or into neutral

When most Honda kids and non turbo eclipses won't even stay next to you on a 2 lane road lol. Either blow by you at a light or stay 3 cars back.

When your gf wants to put cherry blossom red subie badges on the front and rear of your WRX, but can't understand why it has to be an STi to do so.

Don't get butthurt over it. When i said polite I meant like giving them a friendly deuce or wave, not flipping them off like one might assume. But if you think about it, it is kind of taunting them if you know your setup is illegal i.e. illegal exhaust modification

When I hear "taunting" -I think of something else. Revving motor, or another gesture. I guess it was a generalization. I was being sarcastic-ish.

Anyways, I know lots of other people get this, but this was the funniest one for me. -Referring to my Hella Horns, a group of "hoodlums" were grossing a crosswalk that I stopped at, one of them points at my grill and shouts, "YO! Are them speakers in there!! Yo, lemme hear them speakers!" Haha I wanted to blast them at them (I have 4 of them.)

Why does it have to be an STi? Is that your excuse because deep down you think the cherry blossom red is too girly?
