Default Project "Should of bought an STI" aka Jordana

So I figured it was about time i made a build page for my car. She's nothing special just a 2012 WRX base model, I bought the car used with 11,500 miles on it. Yes she has a name, she's named Jordana. It is actually the first turbo car I have owned and my second Subaru (now own 3, 4 purchased). In hindsight I should just bought an sti but I am where I am with it now.

Yeah, I'd say douchebag is about the only accurate way to describe a sticker like that.


Cool car man, but there is Proven Power Bragging Forum FYI. Hopefully this can get moved as this looks like a fun project!

Me too, but I really don't care enough to go through the process of removing it. Plus, when I get stuck behind some dumbass doing 10-15mph in the canyons it feels like a nice way of channeling my frustration in the unfounded hopes that they'll actually move over

I wonder what a cop thinks when you're riding behind them with a sticker like that

Drove out to Swaintech today to pick it up. Has a few flaws in it but nothing that going to effect it. Pain in the ass to get back together without damaging it or the finish. Now I just wait for the weather to break......

if the sticker said "PLEASE MOVE OVER" i bet you would actually get people to move over and you would lose douchebag status.

It actually does work pretty well. No one sits in front of me. As for the DB status, i personally don't care what other opinions are of me, especially if they don't know me.

I have thought about removing it completely, car already attracts enough attention.

On a side note. I found a STI six speed for a reasonable price. Might be taking a short road trip.
