I just got off of work last night and i was at my car in the parking lot. A guy walks up to me and here's the little conversation that we had:


Strange Guy: Hey are you interested in selling your car?

Me: Psshh! No way man!

Strange Guy: Well you know i work for mazda and i could get you
a good deal on a new MP3.

Me: You're kidding right? You think i would sell my impreza for an MP3?!?

Strange Guy: It's like a better newer version of your car.

Me: No.... It's like an imatation wannabe version of my car that's quite ugly.

Strange Guy: Well it's your loss, but if you change your mind just stop by mazda.

Me: *laughing* Whatever... *laughing some more*


After that i just got in my car and drove away. I can't believe this guy just came up to me trying to get me to buy an MP3. I mean my car has the huge subaru swoosh decals in yellow on the side of my car and you could see that i'm proud of my car and subaru, but this guy thought i would prefer an MP3...

Despite the lack of HP, and wrong wheel drive... those little MP3's are kinda sweet. Racing Beat did the suspension for them.. and did a DAMN good job! Nothing to sell your Impreza for... but if you're in the market for a new car in that price range... something to AutoX with... it's pretty slick.

LOL.. The MP3 is crap..

It tested pretty well in slalom, if I'm not mistaken.. But it looks like Shitaki compaired to our GC8's.

Screw the immitation.. wannabe crap.. I can't believe the nerve of that Mazda guy!

I kinda like the MP3.

but yeah, wrong wheel drive, and WAY too little power.

but they look nice, and they handle great. They are an awesome AutoX car.

The MP3's handle well stock, but lack balls (sounds familiar).

Tell him you'll trade it on a RX8, then see where his loyalty lies.

My mom has an MP3. It's actually a pretty nice little car. It could use more power, but the suspension could easily handle another 40 HP, no problem. The shifter feels pretty nice (I would make the throw a little shorter). But the thing handles like it's on rails, doesn't feel like a FWD car. I like them, but I wouldn't trade my RS for one, that's for sure!

Hndatch627, sorry to hear your little story, that guy is an idiot.

everyone that jumped on the banwagon of the WRX b4 knowing anything about the car expect HP and AWD is a idiot. if i had meet with that guy and he started to flame the gc8 i would just flame the hell out of him.

i love the gc8, disappointed that it didnt come as the WRX but i love how it looks and feels.

i hope those ppl that dont know about imprezas expect the WRX will get their heads out of their asses and get educated.

Dude, that kid needs to learn how to type. Oh man, the typing atrocities in there are enough to make me cringe. It's like the horrible car wreck that you can't stand to look at but are drawn into. Craziness.

let them keep typing like that. if thats how they want to learn english...fine by me. soon theyll be so used to it that they will type up their college essays (if they even get in) with n2m and koo and the teacher will flunk their dumbasses. then later in life theyll come to my company looking for a job and ill just say l8z

That guy must have seen my car first and then thought that all RS's were FWD (or something) cause my RS is the only non-AWD ever produced! That guy can learn English better than I can.

Tell him to get an MP3 and race you on a dirt road. IF he wins you will consider it. WHEN he loses has to put a sign up at the Mazda place he works at saying "Subaru Is Better"

Of course, he may have just been wanting you to trade in your car because he wants to pick it up cheap.

LoL! Sounds like a good idea.
Rally race results would be:

MP3---> :flame: <---Impreza

That might be it, how can you not want a GC8?
