I downshift when I'm next to a Prius, so they can hear me hurting the environment.

True story here (relates to the content):
<-That is my car. 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI.
>About 350whp, pretty heavily modded. Lots of work and money gone into it.
>6 puck clutch to handle the power (as well as my abuse).
>Most people who drive a manual wouldn't be able to move the thing 10 feet, let alone someone who doesn't drive manual at all.
>Few weeks ago, at a party late at night.
>Hear my car start up outside (anyone who's heard a WRX/STI knows they sound very distinct).
>Run outside, some guy I kind of knew from the party pick pocketed my keys and tried to steal it.
>He stalled it 3 times not going so much as far as 1 foot before I pulled him out of the car.
>Called police and got him arrested.

And not only is it a theft deterrent, driving manual keeps you from doing stupid **** while driving. You can't eat, talk on the phone, put on makeup, etc, because you're shifting all the time (unless of course you're on the freeway). You actually have to ******* pay attention to driving.

>Save the manuals.

Dude I freaking love WRX's, I lived in Alaska for about 5 years and you wouldn't believe how popular they are up there. I bet at least 60% of all STI Subarus are up there. That right there is my favorite style too, they all look good though.

Hahahaha You good sir made my day. I just drive a really-illegal Mazdaspeed 3, its straight-piped so everyone hears me lol.

>really illegal
>straight pipe

my entire engine is illegal bro, get on my level.
User avatar #624 to #542 - kingcampbell (02/21/2012) [-]
WTFs illegal about it?
not tryna sound like a dick, just curious
User avatar #635 to #624 - LolWutStylinOnU (02/24/2012) [-]
i live in murika and this engine was never imported here. thus it is illegal.
User avatar #636 to #635 - kingcampbell (02/24/2012) [-]
Thats like sayying the Civic type-r engine is illegal..
Its not, just wasnt imported anywhere else....
User avatar #638 to #636 - wilsonc (02/26/2012) [-]
Incorrect. The RB26DETT is not legal in the US because of emissions reasons. Technically if you import a Skyline GT-R into the US you need to swap the engine for something else.

watchout guys.....weve got a bad ass here

not like a billion other people have done that...

User avatar #301 to #236 - cartmananalprobe (02/21/2012) [-]
I'm sorry to say, but I really hate cars like yours, just because I hear a loud noise, and then I look over to be disappointed by a car that looks like a black guy modified, and even you name looks bad.
When I hear a loud engine, I want to look over and see a nice car, not a car that was modified to be nice, I want a Bentley, Ferrari, Mercedes SL, stuff like that.
I don't want to insult, I just wanted to show you that sometimes you guys piss people off with that, and your car isn't that bad, I've seen cars that are worth 1000 dollars, but with a lot of modifications done ti it, that it just looks ridiculous. Save your money, buy a nice car.
User avatar #473 to #301 - kingcampbell (02/21/2012) [-]
or make your car from average into something you can be proud of Fagget
User avatar #495 to #473 - cartmananalprobe (02/21/2012) [-]
Yes, I actually agree with you, I was just pissed and started raging. I'd really like to mod a Mini (the older ones, not the newer, I don't like those as much), put some extra inches of width on the wheels, sporty looking deep rims with a nice chromed double exhaust with a low timber, red with white roof.
#502 to #495 - kingcampbell (02/21/2012) [-]
Although mini's lack all engine performance, this is ok
User avatar #497 to #495 - kingcampbell (02/21/2012) [-]
Camber the **** outta that man!

More like this... when I said older model, I meant it, lol.
User avatar #623 to #523 - kingcampbell (02/21/2012) [-]
ehh, would it just be your DD?
User avatar #626 to #623 - cartmananalprobe (02/22/2012) [-]
I don't know what DD is, but it would be my car to use everyday to go to work and showoff, lol.

Daily Driver...
And youll look cool showing off your mini cooper....

I totally understand man. I'd like to say my car isn't exactly what your thinking of. I didn't just put a huge fart-cannon and a 4" pip straight down. I actually race my car (Texas Autocross, Houston, Auston, College Station) and I have had the exhaust custom made for best performance. What I'm trying to say is, although a lot of people aren't like this, I don't have a loud car for attention or for the sake of being obnoixious.
I used to live in Las Vegas, and there were a LOT of sweet cars like what you said. After a while you start to easily distinguish Supercars from Modified street cars. Thats why cars like mine don't annoy me.
Not all "rice-burners" are duche's desprite for attention. And, I don't know anyone who likes crapy $1000 civics like your taking about with a crap-ton of mods. It gives street cars a bad rep.

I actually thought you were going to start raging all over the place, thanks for being a gentleman. If you race, then it's fine, and modded cars can really look good, but it's the loud sounds that annoy me. I've heard some that really have a nice sound, but most people here where I live that mod cars are just in it for the attention, so they have those really-loud-but-the-car-doesn't-move kind of cars. I've seen a few cars here (about 2) that are nice looking, nice low timber sound and are just super fast.
I have to apologize for my unnecessary rage, but I just thought the worst with that name, but I shouldn't judge people on their FJ name, mine is probably one of the worst, lol.

Haha Whats wrong with my name? Is it the X's? The Neo Part is derived from Star wars, not the Matrix lol. If you have ever played Star Wars the Old Republic there are Neo Crusaders. They're boss.
My car is one of those cars, it sounds really deep and bassy (unlike most jap's) and gets very loud and pitchy at <4000RPM. Its not one of those "all talk, no bark cars" either, its lowered with race suspension and is almost completely gutted in the inside aside from a select few creature comforts. I just wieghed it in at 26500 lbs.
Oh and no prob, theres no point fighting on the internet, besides why should I be angry at your opinon? Its not mine.
User avatar #463 to #434 - cartmananalprobe (02/21/2012) [-]
Your car looks nice, and yes, it is from all the X's that I thought your name was suspicious. I never played Old Republic and I thought it was from Matrix, lol, you read my mind.
How short from 0 to 60mph does it do?
User avatar #458 to #434 - marinepenguin (02/21/2012) [-]
a 26500 lb car? seems legit
User avatar #481 to #458 - xXneoXx (02/21/2012) [-]
derp.. 2650lb. Its 0-60 is in the low 6's, sometimes high 5's. Its more about handling than anything. I have gotten better track times than a new stock Mustang GT.
User avatar #493 to #481 - marinepenguin (02/21/2012) [-]
Dang. I want to completely fix up my car (I have a 96 Camaro) and make it all nice and give it a better engine (its got the stock 3.8L V6 with 200,000 miles on it) and everything, but I don't know where to start.
User avatar #512 to #493 - xXneoXx (02/21/2012) [-]
Removing weight is the quickest way to make your car handle better and go faster man. That's where I started lol.
User avatar #467 to #458 - cartmananalprobe (02/21/2012) [-]
Probably a 0 extra that shouldn't be there.
User avatar #471 to #467 - marinepenguin (02/21/2012) [-]
I figured as much.
