well technically the Evolutions that came to the U.S were not the EVO 8's. Hence the fact that they only say EVOLUTION on the back, but I think Japan does have the 8.

As I was pulling into the video rental place:

"Hey nice car"

Thanks!

"I like your STI headlights"

Thease are not STI headlights, thease are Morette Headlights

"Dude, what are you talking about those are STI Headlights"

Um, no sorry, their not there Morette Headlights

"Dude, what do you know? My friend is a Subaru nut, he has a 10 second WRX, it can probably beat your car"

Really now, what modifications is your friend running

"Oh well you know, 150 shot of NAWZ, Exhaust, Intake, he has a wing in the back that puts down 3000 pounds of pressure to his rear wheels when he really gets on it"

So your friend runs "10's" in the 1/4 mile, what kind of trap speeds is he getting?

"Whats a trap speed?"

This is the point where I grabbed my movie and left

I saw a blue STi today at a stoplight (25 mph street), and gave the wave and a nod (the "I dont wanna race, but sweet car, fellow suby owner" nod). He then proceeded to drive like a maniac cutting off 3 people, chasing down a crappy late 80's honda/acura.

I give him a month before his 2.5L turbo in the junkyard being salvaged.

After I posted that I realized they probably don't say eight over there. But oh well.

Some guy went up to my car, with a fleshlight , to see if he could find my intercooler. When I told him that it was N/A, he didn't belive me so I had to open up my hood and said, "Do you see an intercooler, do you see a turbo anywhere in here?!" He just couldn't take that I whooped him.
