Default stupid comments about the STi

They were just testdriving it on Speedvision. One of the testers said:

"I'm already starting to forget about the hood scoop and the wing, even though I can see them in the rearview mirror the whole time."

SCR is a crappy show with an idiot host. Im assuming your quote from above was from that show, cause thats exactly what they said along with making fun of 'WRX' and 'STi'

Also, they said you guys look like dorks!

So in one segment on SCR, this guy's test driving a supercharged Acura and he calls it a "sleeper" and says you can look over at the car next to you at a traffic light and then blow his doors off.

In the next segment, the host says, "Street racing is like kissing your sister. If you do it, you're a moron."

Hmmm...

Dude, you're 35 years old. Stop watching shows that were designed to attract teenage viewers.

Where's the confusion? Not everyone likes the big, ugly (albeit functional) hoodscoop or the big, ugly (not so functional) rear wing. What's the problem?

The wing and scoop are ugly and obstruct visibility. This is news?

Function > fashion. Oi!!!

This is a very old episode. If I remember correctly, they said a lot of nice things about the STi and they liked it.

Oh, and...

I thought Street Tuner challenge was a good show.. Not everything on Speed is gay...

The Both the Cobalt and the Skyline on Street tuner challenge were pretty bad.

I honestly don't care what kind of quality the show is as long as it's about cars. But if I had to pick topgear is the bestest
