Hey Guys I am obviously not new to the forums and a good handful of you guys already know me or knew my old car. Slammed 05 wrx that was red. Well finally got a brand new Subaru and its the 2013 brz and i must say i love this car. sure I know it has a twin in the scion business but the car is mainly Subaru built and after buying the Subaru version it just felt right. Well back to the subject at hand. I used to get deuces, whats up looks, and other things but now with the brz i get nothing and when i throw up the deuces i get weird looks. sure the car is not awd or turbo but its still a Subaru and has a boxer motor. I figure i would ask you guys to see what you say.

I think that the problem is that there is more wrx/sti owners than brz owners. There is not a lot of brz's on the road and alot of subaru people are used to the imperza line.

Don't feel too bad, I have an Impreza and I rarely get deuced. Probably cause I'm not stanced, but whatever.

Just keep trying! haha

For all the BRZ/FRS that I've come across, not one waves back; so I guess I just stopped bothering.

I still look though!

I wave to most every Subaru I see when I'm in my FRS or MR2 - Mainly Imprezas, but there are a handful of Foresters and Legacys that I will see.

Not a single person has waved back - just stares.

It is definitely an impreza secret society... All subarus are applicable... But generally it all started with the imprezas. It will likely end that way

I would like to also add that it doesn't matter what Subaru you have. A fellow enthusiast can recognize a fellow enthusiast.. Impreza, leggy, brz, fozzy alike

Exactly. Nothing to do with the car all to do with the enthusiast. I wave to different makes and models but most of the time get states because I'm not in a turbo car anymore. DBAGS!

I think the problem might be you can't really distinguish a brz/frs until you're close enough to see a badge. I frown upon the Scion world just because of the Tanner Foust fans when he was running FD. Like bitches you guys are FWD, you're not cool drifter bros nor do most of you know how the sport even works. but I always wave to a Suby that looks like it has an enthusiast behind the wheel. And I'm sure we can all agree that by just looking at a car, you can tell the owner is an enthusiast.

That's my input, carry on.

I don't know how the "sport" of drifting works and I'm a Ken Block Fanboi, like all Subaru drivers.
What do I win?

I waved to an m3 in my rear view mirror the other day. my wife said "i don't think he can see you any longer." does that count?

Suby love is a rather fickle thing. I never get a wave back in OXT As stated, must be an impreza thing.

When I drive my 00 fozzy, I only gotten a wave back from a bugeye. However, when I drive my boosted RS, I get waves more often.

This thread is kinda funny. I've deuced many of BRZ's while driving my wrx. Every single one has given me a nasty return look. Like if they are of a higher power. Like how dare you deuce me.

Yeah I had one get a little lively when I was pulling up on him rapidly on the freeway...seriously bro?

On a side note, don't take this personally...but it just kinda seems like BRZ/FRS owners are...snooty douches.
