Red 3-Dr SVT today at like 3ish give or take. Was 2 cars behind me getting off of 275 S @ 8-mile and we both turned left onto haggerty. Front bumper has some extra black paint below the front grill and it was pretty cool looking

I was in the black G35

110? I hit maybe 60 at max, but even that is doubtful.

The only time anyone could have reached that speed was when you "raced" that Mazda and it took a good 10 seconds before I figured out that you two were racing with how slow you both pulled away.

My bad I don't have a fancy turbo pal! And you could have at least waved! Just a couple 17yr olds admiring a cool ST! and we told the speed3 to go against you, he was just as excited as we were to see a battle of the greats which never happened! Would have liked to see you open it up! My bad on the speed I was excited to post it!

I was worried this was the mentality of ST owners.. But I've seen signs myself. I've driven next to three now in my race red ST and waved, not even a glance from any of them. Meanwhile I get all sorts of looks and thumbs up from GTI drivers.

This is so true, they must be getting them with a special persona package! And GTI drivers are sweet as heck! Speed3 owners are cool too! It's just some of them ST'rs!
