Yeah I have had a few people ask my why I spend so much money "tricking" out a Subaru. I just laugh and tell them I'm stock with respect to the exterior. You should see the look when I tell them that. :lol: :lol:
i got that the other day after i race a modded evo. I told them i was 100% stock and yes my stock STi just whoop you. he didn't believe my car was stock and ask me to rev her up a little bit. After that he had a sad look on his face.:lol:
i've heard i either have a built crawford block, u-tec, cobb stage 2 map, all kinds of ecu reflash, stealth back, turbo back, dyno and street tuned by Jake at Dieman, cut-out, or down pipe and the list goes on, i dont even have a drop airfilter but i have a built block come on people, i just laugh everytime my friends that know im stock come up to me and tell about how someone heard i had this or that, its just great
I get that all the time. Granted I have a few cosmetic pieces on my car that aren't stock, but are still OEM Subaru and it's not that stuff that the untrained eye notices anyways. I've gotten questions like, "why did you put on that big spoiler thing, what's that thing on the hood for, did you change the exhaust, is the blue interior custom, and did you paint the brakes?" The best was when one guy commented that nothing on my car is original and I told him that it was ALL original. I don't think he believed me.
When i got my alignment after putting my cobb springs on (which were the only mod at the time) the technician said, "man you have a lot of money." I said, "why's that?" He said, "because you must have put at least fifty thousand confused into this car." :lol:
At our office parking structure, there's another guy with an STi parked next to me and one of my co-workers remarked, "Hey, he bought the same body kit that's on your car." Another time, a different co-worker asked where I customized my interior. People will never know.
Haha, I am Stage II and Protune with catless exhaust, and people who get in my car think it's stock. Even when they see the Defi gauges they think the car came with them...guess they match really well.
It's just because my friends at school don't care about cars at all, so they have noooo idea.
^^ Haha, same thing happened to me.
I had a couple of people question if I was stock, when the car was actually stock. But I`ve actually had more people thinking that I was stock after I went Stage 2, lol. Everyone's like "you should get exhaust," lol. Cobb sleeper FTW
Its funny, most people that know me assume I have messed with the car. That is because I went off the deep end in mods on my last car. They are usually surprised I have left it stock when I tell them. But that is because of me and not the car.
