Okay. . . . who's got the Blue with (I think) anthracite wheels in the Bothell / Lynnwood area.

Spotted you while I was entering 405 north from Canyon Park yesterday evening and stuck with you until you exited 196th off I-5. I would have followed, but I was heading to the 220th exit to see my folks. :p

BTW. . . I was the dood with the freshly-tinted windows on the Silver / Silver. :D

If you just got yours, and you tinted your windows already, does that mean your dealer put your plates on right away? Here in OR, a few dealers have a deal with DMV where they can put your plates on the minute you buy instead of waiting a month or however long.

Or do you just hope no cops care they can't see your temporary registration?

The reason I ask is I'm trying to force myself to wait until my plates show to get the tint, but it's not easy to do, frankly. With all the attention the car gets, I wouldn't mind even a little additional interior privacy.

Radar. . . the tint shop did what they typically do in this case and move the temporary to the passenger side of the windshield. . . pretty much par for the course when it comes to convertibles in the summertime, anyway. ;)

I've have SEVERAL police and WSP cars cruise right on past me since the tint. . . none of them have so much as bat an eye at me. Heck, I even PASSED a WSP car on the freeway at 2 AM heading up towards Bellingham (at the speed limit of course) while he was escorting a tow truck, presumably with an impound in tow, and nothing. I'm sure he noticed I had to temp in the back window. . . I didn't cruise by him that fast. :p

At any rate, I'm sure the authorities are well aware of how all this works with new cars, and unless you do something to initiate a pull-over (infraction of some kind), I doubt you'll have any problems. I just make it a point to drive with manners, anyway. So far so good. :D

Rota Battles 17 inch Fit?

A couple of STi sitings today. Around noon parked in Fremont a black with a bike on the roof, and this afternoon near Crossroads, a de-badged silver with plates so I figured it wasn't you. Come to think of it, it's the first time I've seen any STi's on the road in at least a couple weeks.

I also did the tint with temp license, I just left in on the back shelf and figured it wasn't a big deal.

Indeed. . . we do need to put one together. :D

Just broke Sonia in Friday evening with the girlfriend present. . . about 50 miles later I brought up the RPMs a bit, and was very plesently-surprised. Top speed so far? Just about 110 during break-in. LATE at night, north of Mt. Vernon, and absolutely nobody on the freeway. ;)
