    Pointless things/myths people say about Subaruís

    So a lot of the time I do be out in car I get people coming up and say the most stupid crap ever over the weekend got a few

    In Sligo a father of two kids says would I let his kids get a picture beside the evo as there mad about them ( I said nothing but yep work away till my own kid said itís a Subaru) he wrapped up photographs pretty quick with a red face and headed on

    Next back in Dublin waiting on herself to come out of shop a lad came up to window ďHow ya bud nice motor whatís she bleeding like on petrol ď I said around 340 miles per tank to see what heíd say ď jasus thatís bleeding shit bud ď I just said ah didnít buy it for fuel economy I wish!!!
    These perceptions always make me laugh and I donít mind them I am sure thereís many more comments to lads over the years so post away

    Yeah the petrol thing gets old. They are not so bad on fuel. I didnít a run from Galway to Malahide and back with some shitehawking on the motorway and had a quarter tank left.

    The usual
    "is it fast?"
    "What horsepower is it?"
    "Is it a turbo?"
    "Does it drink the petrol?"
    "You afraid it'll get robbed? "
    "Is it your daily?"
    "Is it remapped?"
    "Are the engines really that bad?"
    "Is it 4 wheel drive?"
    Had a turbo, WRX , STI , 2 WR1s and a legacy B4
    What's left?........Litchfield T25
