Post 2.5 RS owners vs I-Club members

I'd like to know how many RS owners are actually members of I-Club compared to the total number of RS owners in North America.

There are probably a mojority of non-members. Most of the time when I wave to people, they just look at me like, "huh?".

May just be my location, but most of the people I've waved to and pulled up next to have turned out to be i-clubbers.
I've seen some L's out there, and so far none of them have been i-clubbers. There's been only one person that saw with an RS with WRC decals on his car and stuff, he wasn't an i-clubber, but he did go to a local tuner a lot of us go to in Socal.
Gotta fly!

I think I am the only rs owner in my town although I have seen a silver rs sedan a couple of times but they didn't acknowledge me.what is up with that? I can't help but stare if I see another rs you would think these people would be staring right back especially since my car is modded a little and does look a little more sportier.The only guy who ever gave me thumbs up was driving an early 90's model eclipse he was a true admirer.

Hell I've talked to a couple of others here that have RS' and they have no idea what kinda car they have. they just think that it looks cool and thats it. They have no idea the history behind the car or what they can really do to it. Up here we have 2 BRP coupes
5 BRP sedans and 1 STM sedan. None are aprt of the I-Club, I have even told a couple of them to check us out and join, Oh well.
Here I think we have the largest per capa of Subarus anywhere I swear I think they out rank the Honda/Acuras, I think that it's because of where we live and the need/want of AWD. Well at least i have you guys and gals to talk to.
Peace

In Denver, I've seen quite a few. Usually one or two a week. Someone owns a black one close to me, But I've never met them. Most of the one's around here actually ARE connected to JC Sports somehow. There's a black 98 legacy around here with a turbo, too. I never really have met that many people who don't know what they have. Once they look, they keep finding more and more .

they made a little over 13,000 RS total in the US ...there are only 4,300 members of this board not all with RS or From the US so I would say at best 1 out of 4 more like 1 out of 5 of every RS you say on the road are memebers.

Yeah, I've seen two others around Raleigh... neither are members, or at least, neither are posting members.

One's a silver one driven by a kid (ghetto-style...he didn't even wave...jackass) and the other one was a red (98) one I didn't catch up to.
