Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

My car has many of these features already described so I will not list anything already said.

-variable length intake manifold
-headrests that move forward in the event of a rear collision to prevent whiplash.
-350 watt stereo.
-more airbags than pounds of torque
-one touch sunroof
-windows with one touch (and sunroof) automatically go back down if your head or hand is in the way when it is closing.
-bigger windshield than hood.
-smaller steering wheel and steering ratio than an NSX or S2000 (I think on both counts for each car.)

I can't think of much more but I know there is a lot of pretty cool details on this car that I read about prior to my purchase.

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

reminded me of a few other things.

-Auto headlights, i love this feature, never need to turn on or off my lights.
-AC automatically turns off at 95% throttle, so i can race with the AC on.
-Leather wrapped steering wheel and shift nob
-Radio controls on the steering wheel

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

2004 Subaru WRX STi

Driver Control Center Differential- You can adjust the power to be more to the rear wheels or you can lock it so it's a 50/50 split.
-You can angle the headlights up or down with a switch, 4 different variations
-2004 STi's came without speakers, radio and floor mats to save weight...
-2004 Was the first year for the STi in the U.S.


I'm sure most of you know about the engines on these so i'll leave that out.

you forgot to mention that 04 rims on the STi have a different offsetting and the tuning on the '04's is harder to accomplish because most parts that are available for the other ones arent available for the '04.

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

04 STi's also have a weird hub pattern for their wheels. most 5 lug hubs are 5x114.3 but the 04's are 5x110 or something weird like that.

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

My 1998 Jeep GC 4.0L has select-trac with full time 4wd, part-time 4wd, 4wd low and 2wd. It also has a button on the dashboard that allows you to cut off the Overdrive which helps going up steep mountain highways without flooring it.

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 Off-Road
-Has the 3.0L engine, same as the Ford Taurus
-The Off-Road package gives me 4.10's and a locking diff, plus a shiny skidplate
-Has 245/75R16 tires, same as many fullsize trucks
-The combination of a family sedan motor and a locking differential make it impossible to do a burnout
-The "door ajar" sensors are known to go bad on Rangers, making my door ajar light stay on constantly
-The oil filter is tucked underneath the header near the bottom of the engine, but is only accessible from the top or by taking the drivers side tire off

In the two or so months that I've owned the vehicle, I have yet to find any really cool features, just stuff that makes me scratch my head and wonder...but what did I expect, it is a Ford.
