84. You hardly shut the door of other cars, fearing you'll shater their window.

I always have a hard time shutting other car doors because of the "no framed windows"

When you put your crap in the back seat not to keep it out of the way, but for weight distribution purposes...

...you might drive a subaru.

Sorry, but I have to do this....

It's "you're," not "your."

I'm editing your title. (That one's a "your." :D )

Wow, amen to that. I have only had my RS for 3 months and I can already relate to 80% of those.

You know you drive a GC8 when some asks "Is that an STI or just an RS?" and you want to spear them into the side of their civic.

the rattling used to annoy me more, because i would step out of it and ride in my friend's 04 350Z, but then he installed a short throw that rattles like all hell, so made me feel a lot better about my subaru :)

Dammit... that's me like every day. People slam my doors because they think they will be heavy. We don't even have window frames! And yeah, people always touch the glass to close the doors...
