Especially in the early years 2013-14, the lowest guess I got was $40k USD. Mostly people assumed it was $60-$80k. To the uninitiated I'd just say it's a "poor man's Porsche" to give them a general idea of the point of the car.

If any of them saw the interior, they'd know it's cheap AF.

18' 50th anniversary, I get asked if it's a Tesla about once a day, I guess just pointy front headlights means Tesla to a lot of people, everyone who finds out it's a subaru ask if it's all wheel drive, and theres almost none around me so a lot people haven't seen one yet, so they get pretty cavalier, tapping on my window when I'm in a parking lot and stuff to ask about it

Part of it depends on location.
My dad has a series.yellow in southwestern Wisconsin and gets mobbed on the daily, whereas I've got a tS in Los Angeles, and no one ever gives it a second glance.

Most I ever get from strangers is "nice car" or something similar.

Never get asked the price.

The only comment I ever got about my FRS was, "who's badass car is that?" Not that it matters; i buy cars for me, not to please others.
Well said, Drive on my friend.

I moved into a little town in the middle of nowhere North Carolina, and literally everyone that came into where I worked asked about my car. Now there is at least 3 or 4 of them in this tiny town of maybe 2500 people.

I've only been asked about how fast it is. Everyone is surprised when I tell them their bicycle is faster. Someone posted that it looks cheap, but I disagree. From every angle but that ass-ugly 17 front it's a not-cheap looking car.

No. Every thing else in the car can be manual but I draw the line at power windows.
In fact I have been so spoiled by my last 3 cars that now I get pissy when in other cars where the buttons are not auto up and down and I have to actually hold them for 5 seconds.

Or when the windows stop working the second you turn the key off.
