    Relica STi wing.

    I bought my subie so I COULD drive it in the winter. Its not a Ferrari, you should be able to take a Subaru out and have fun in it.

    my point is i do have fun in it. but why should I drive it in the winter and potentially wreck into something or beat up the paint when I can drive another car? Why did this have to turn into a flame fest? :rolleyes:

    hey dickhole, don't go rolling your eyes at me. I was just asking if that's what they were...read above, can't see so good.

    I never said anything positive or negative about it either way. Personally, I think you've got yourself a pretty nice little car. :bigthumb: I've always liked the black ones. And I say more power to you for wanting to put it away for the winter and keep it nice...a clean car is usually a nice car.

    If it were me I wouldn't go putting STi stickers on a non STi WRX regardless of how many STi boltons but hey, that's just me, and I don't care for stickers. Don't post pictures of your car if you don't want opinions on it...:eek3:

    there are a few people here in town that put up their WRXs for winter.

    I put winter tires on mine and bomb ass through the snow and ice.

    Function over form baby, use it at what its good at.

    i personally think that the nurspec is quiet. a lot of people think its loud though. Extremely deep and just sounds great :cool:

    I hate getting my car all gross with salt and snow, but the whole reason why I bought it is to drive in the winter. I had a mustang previously and I wasn't going anywhere in these nor'easters we keep having :)

    so yeah, I can understand why someone would want to put their WRX away but the all wheel drive is too valuable in the wintertime (at least for me).
