there's a blue GM/GC model RS in columbia with license plates that say "WRX", and he's had 'em for years. Maybe he, too, is confused.

There is a guy in Laurel with a blue RS with gold rims whose plate is USAWRX. He is always parked in the lot in front of PepBoys.

i'm just going to tell people that it is in fact a WRX. i just didn't get the optional turbo, and opted for an extra .5L of displacement. RHdude got both of those factory options

Well I'd say to just put your window up and ignore them but that usually makes them feel the need to then cut you off as if you insulted their manhood by ignoring them.

Just ask them "do you have a swap in there?" or "That's not an Acura is it?"

:P
