So I am driving down in traffic and I see this guy in an altima in the lane to the right of me, he keeps leaning over, I though for the longest time he was trying to move over to get the space in front of me. At the next red light he leans way over, like practically sitting in his passenger seat.
"SICK DUDE!! SICK!! Is that a 22B?! SICK!!!"
then the light turned green I smiled and drove off
that totally made my day today, especially considering my car has not been washed like in almost a week. haha it was cool.
just thought I would share.
oh yeah the only visual mod I have on my car is the V6 wing and the fog light covers really.

Heh, I just got the "thumbs up" from a guy on the expressway yesterday. That hadn't happened in a few years, but it was cool anyways

Just a thought...

Anybody that knows what a 22b is, knows a 2001 RS with a v6 spoiler and foglight covers sure isn't one.

Sorta like asking a civic owner with a big aluminum rim and shiny wheels if it's type R...

I would disagree some people might just know about the 22B and associate an RS with it. I think thats pretty sweet, I like when people in STI's give me a wave or a thumbs up feels good.

You can't associate an 22B with a RS. 22B is 10x more badass then a regular RS. That's like sayin a Lancer and a EVO is the same.

Every time I see a worthy car, I give them the "thumbs up." But no one ever seems to show off. If i do that I expect to see what it can do.

Ditto, I gave a thumbs up to a guy in an NSX a couple weeks ago, the first time I saw one on the street. Made my day when he nodded back. :)

Here in SC though, the only finger I ever see sticking up is the middle one. :(

Im just saying to the non-subaru enthusiast eye they might not know. Maybe they saw it on youtube or some shit. just my opinion.

I think you're wrong. The 22B has been exposed to the general public in video games for years and it really doesn't look all that different than a RS. To the untrained eye I can easily see people mistaking the two.

I gave a thumbs up to a dude in a L when I was driving GC8love's RS to the grocery store. I got a nod back. .. I was shocked to say the least.

Possibly, I just don't see somebody getting them mixed up..
