does anyone feel self consious in their evo?

do u feel self consious about driving your evo?

i used to feel self conscious of people thinking of me as a poser, especially coming from a small town. But i worked and saved hard to buy my car.

it might be a strange topic to speak about buti know evos are well within the price range of most chavs nowadays

i feel it too. But then i also know im driving a jap tin can that was once the pride of my local council estate. So it was kind of my fault. Its a love affair we all have to deal with. A terrible affliction... bit like going out with a hot bird with a gammy leg.
Though its nothing quite like the self loathing i experienced driving my impreza.

Wouldnt say anything evo 7 or below could be considered a posers car though.

Quick way to tell:- if your glove box has hair jel, lynx deodorant and a box of condoms.

a bit, small down where everyone knows every one etc etc. And they think your doin somit wrong or dodgy dealings cos you have an evo.

Doesnt seem to regiter that you've worked for years and saved hard.

i dont feel self concious at all. as you said you worked for and paid for your car so dont feel guilty about driving it.

if you get anyone giving you grief, stick your anti lag on and burn the tramp!

I don't care what others think. It's my car and I love it. If they have a problem or want to label me a "boy racer" then let them. No skin off my nose, they're just jealous cos they dont have one.

IMO I wouldn't waste a moment's thought on anyone who judges you solely on which car you drive.

My missis thinks I want an evo because I think I'll look like a bad ass.. she also makes comments about boy racers and southend sea front. She thinks evo's give off the wrong impression! what the **** does she know!
