Question I am new to the Subaru lingo. Please help....

I know what the WRC car is but what is "555".
Everybody seems to have a different opinion in the other threads. Also I would like to say how congenial everyone on this BBS is. If you visit some of the Honda BBS's they are sometimes snobish.

Thanks again,

555 is one of British American Tobacco's international brands. They were a SWRT sponsor for their most successful years, so the 555 livery became associated with the Subaru/Prodrive factory team. BAR F1 team ran a half 555 half Lucky Strike livery last year. The blue and yellow color scheme has been adopted by the SWRT, as it has basically become synonymous with rally Subarus. - Although BAT pulled it's sponsorship to focus on its F1 enterprise.

That clears things up. I remember someone saying it was a color but, it makes sense now.
