    would be interesting to compare the colors of the cars and reactions of people to it. Mine is grey and I dont really get much of a reaction. Have had a few compliments from guys who knew what it was in various parking lots though.

    Yes!!! NB RS, people go bat **** crazy when they see me, hell they don't even look at the road half the time, they are just pointing at me or staring indefinitely. It's scary I don't trust people or their driving so for me it's an obstacle course weaving through these gawkers. That's just normal people...

    Doesn't include the racers and motorheads who think they own the road, quite funny when they get beat by a focus but have no idea why. Such a small niche group of this working man's superhatch it's awesome!

    And to quote alot of people here, unless you're an enthusiast or know what an RS is then you're just clueless and think it's just a focus. Had it happen to me today actually a Type R pulled up and had no idea what I was driving..... Yet half the battle is these cars going head to head

    That happened to me yesterday, Toyota Tacoma on the freeway.

    When he was barely aligned with my front windows, the threw a peace sign and I let off. I did not even passed 5k rpm.

    I remember my wife asking why cars seem to match speed on the freeway, hanging beside for a while and then speed off.
    Usually it is a kid in a old beginner model BMW or a import with a tuner pipe.

    I actually would get the usual chill thumbs-up/dues/hang-loose signs from owners of other brand vehicles (Subaru, Mustangs, VWs, etc). Funny enough, most of the aggression I appear to incite is from ST (Focus & Fiesta) owners. They would always zoom up and hang around next to me, either size me up or give me love, then proceed to speed ahead, zig-zaging around traffic.

    +1. I was going to say the same.

    Although, I got a thumbs up from an STI owner the other day.

    Interesting what you guys are saying here. It must be that spoiler that triggers people.

    Just this morning (small town, 30mph zone) a Subaru Station Wagon singled me out, crossed the median and came straight at me. I had to swerve to avoid getting hit.

    At first I thought they might be on their phone because it was such a horrible maneuver from the Subie driver. Something tells me it's something much more sinister.

    If the police saw what this guy did they would of pulled his license right there and then.

    Where the hell do you people get all this stuff happening? I daily drive an NB and get zero attention more than like once every couple weeks. I'm invisible to the STs, the WRXes, even the damn Type Rs.
