Default Alright this has got to be the most crazy sighting yet....

On 267 going East right at the chantilly herndon exit....we just got of the exit and were in the far left lane and this dude is like going 90 or more comes up real fast on our tail....and we were going 70mph in my cousins Camry. For a sec we were like what an a****** and then we were like... a silver STi with that massive hood scoop was right behind us.....ofcourse we couldn't move we were too much in awe.....the dude punched it went around us and left us as if standing still. What the heck is going on..I need to call my dealership and find out....Who here has one in VA and is laying low????

They are not out. The one you saw was a press car or one of the touring factory test mules.

Hey I know an STi when I see one....it was not just a big wing flying down the highway...Unless the person did the whole conversion of the front lights and the body shell and the scoop. I am sure it could possibly be....one the press test mule cars....the thing is...the ones that are out are all blue...not silver so go figure?

No they are not all blue, there are a few silver and a couple of white as well.

The 04 WRX's are available and on the streets.
The scoops on them are bigger than last years, so the only thing someone would have to do to it is swap the wing and it would look like an STI.
I'm not saying the one you saw wasn't an STI, but it could have been a WRX. My 02 WRX will pull away from traffic at 70 like it was nothing at all too.

THe hoodscoop on the standard 04's is way smaller tan a STi's though.

What I've heard is ALL press cars are WRB, not any in Silver.

It was probably a regular WRX

Yes all PRESS cars are blue, there are White and silver test mules running around all over. You will see them here and there.

I'd be more excited seeing a STi than a GTR. Those have been available for quite awhile now.

I know that Skylines are out, how many of those cars have you seen driving around? There must be many in your neighborhood
