Angry Common things people say about your car!

Hey all,

What are some annoying things that you've been told about your car? For me its always about "comfort" factor and annoying whining about how my passengers back is sore. I get this about every time I take someone who's not an 86 fanatic like me, also I get the common "suspension is so rough" about my car too. Oh, and don't get started about how hard it is for people to enter and exit my car... it's embarrassing... My door and side skirt needs to be replaced.

Maybe I'm more ignorant about this because I'm in love with my car...

Took a girl out for lunch at my work not soon after getting my 2016 Frs, I'm 6'1 and manage to get in and out of it just fine mind you. The second she saw it "omg it's so tiny!".. Well duh.

My mother complains that the seats are too "gripy". I think they're perfect, the Focus ST Recaros have much more of a grip than the 86's do. I wonder what'd she'd think of those

"Is this the BRZ?"

"Why didn't you get a GT-86"

"You could have gotten a Mustang for the same price"

"Don't these only have 170WHP?"

"Why didn't you get the BRZ"

"Why are there a bunch of different names for the same car?"

"It's basically a Subaru"

"If it came boosted stock I might get one"

so many more I cant think of

Drove up to the "taco bus" the other evening, to get carry out. While waiting outside on this little patio next to the parking lot, this cute girl said "that's a pretty car" ....... her boyfriend just laughed and said I'll bet it is, under all that dirt".

Now, I'm going out and wash my car .......

You must hang out where there are just car guys because I have never been asked one of those things by the general public! I bet 99.8% of the public would not know enough about the car to even ask those questions.
