Post Complimentary Color

I've had my MY00 Coupe for about a month and a half now. What i've noticed is that EVERYONE comments on the color of my car (BRP). Everyone who sees it says "wow I like that color", "that is a really pretty color." This is fine, I DO think it is a great color, which is why I picked it...but good grief is that the ONLY thing noticable??!!?? Not the tall rear wing or hood scoop/vents or BIG ASS FOGLIGHTS?? Noone every says anything else...

Well a wise person once said....if you have nothing good to say ...don't say it. So maybe they didn't like that huge wing, hood scoop and big fogs?

Love that antennae!

You bastard, you stole my color! ..just because there were no more BRPs available at the time at Jack Miller and I had to have it right then, I got my SRP. Ah, well, I still like it. At least people notice the color of your car. People just stare at mine and don't say anything.

I didn't get mine at Jack Miller B. Foyle. I would have except someone bought it from under me! I think I test drove your red one though I got my BRP at Figgs in Topeka, KS.

Cool

I get the same comments from people. Yes, non-car-freak people see the paint first. When pissing off those people, they tend to remember the color of the cars, while freak like me remember, color, model, approximate year, make and so on.

WTF!

I didn't think Figgs Imports (Topeka, KS) sold new Subarus. Every time I drive by the place, they've got a lot of used stuff on the lot. Needless to say, I've never been impressed.

BTW, I wanted to purchase my Impreza from Jack Miller, but they pissed me off by telling me they couldn't sell me a MY2000 coupe in silverthorne metallic (supposedly, they didn't have any left). Then, after I went through a dealer in Omaha, NE, Jack comes back to me with info that they "just got another shipment." Needless to say, I love to disappoint those who piss me off!

Don Juan - When's the next KC-area event? I missed the auto-x at the Woodlands a couple of weeks ago, but I'm down for whatever. Keep me posted, okay?

Sorry, I'm bad at remebering colors. You don't know how many dirty looks I get from calling a person's car "red".

"Damnit! It Fuego Feria!" or some crap like that.

The BRP was my first choice, the white my second. I got the white. Though the lines are more noticeable on the white. I'd take a Sonic Blue (P1 color) any day.

Matt Nelson--Figgs is rather small...but the experience I had was awesome. They only carry about 8 Subarus on the lot at any one time (mostly outbacks of course) and all of them are in the showroom or in their underground storage. I had a bad experience with Jack Miller as well. The salesman's entire pitch any time I said something was..."Oh come on, just buy it." I swear to God that's what he'd say. What a putz. Anyway since the MY01's were out I got the MY00 at invoice from Figgs so I was way happy. As far as an event, i'm not sure, haven't heard of anything going on. Some of the guys are getting together to help ????? install his TEC-II this weekend in Lenexa somewhere...but i dunno of anything other than that.

donjuan, if it makes you feel any better, I don't like the color of your car. I bought a 99 instead or a 2000 just so I could get the Rally Blue. Do you feel better now?
