People where I live don't know much about Subarus. They know the WRX and they know turbo, but I pull up beside a Mustang or an Eclipse at a red light in my 99 OBS and the driver sees my hood scoop and assumes turbo Subaru and races accordingly. Me--I don't care. I'll race anything off the red light, but I know some of these gotta think "Those turbo Subarus aren't crap" when I floor it.

Anyway, saw this on eBay for the first time. Sorry if it's been discussed before. Thought it would make the perfect companion to my closed off hood scoop. :bot:

(No, I'm not serious. This falls in the same category as the fake convertible top.)

Yeah, if whoever invented that thing makes more money off it than I earn, I'm just gonna hang myself. You know, the bull scrotom guy probably lives in a mansion by now...

Me and several other subaru buddies were making fun of a civic with one of those the other day. Now we can make fun of you too.

Holy crap... that would be funny as hell to sneak into the pipe of someones car as they pull to the launch gate an an AutoX event. Imagine all the course workers faces as this car screams... uh.. squeals past them.

I thought the same thing--secretly stick on someone's pipe and confuse the heck out of them when they hear it. If it happened to me it wouldn't be as funny though...


bulletproof, I don't think anyone here was seriously going to install one on their Sube.
