    Projector housings?

    I'm more of a fan of new factory buckets, high wattage incandescent bulbs (80w lo/100w hi) and a wiring harness to take the load off of the headlight switch.

    Really relaxed chilled out driver. Possibly as my commute to work is 2 miles there and back!

    I just drive a little on the fast side on motorways always safe though

    2006 Subaru Outback XT. It's pretty much an STi in the form of a station wagon. I got a speeding ticket in it on my birthday for doing 67 in a 40. And get this, the cop got me only 100 feet past the intersection. So, in about 150 feet, I can almost get up to 70 mph.

    Yeah projectors, still not 100% on them.
    Don't worry, they're great for about 20ft and then they cut right the fuck out. Like literally in a straight line, no nice gradient of light into the distance, just a very distinct wedge of light.

    Like OMFG STOP SIGN FUCK FUCK FUCK kind of immediate wedge of light.

    They do look badass, though.

    Surreal Mentality Subaru goes BWAAAAPSSSSHHHHH

    Can confirm Subaru badassery. I have a 2005 Legacy 2.5 GT with a VF41 turbo out of a 2004-2007 JDM STI rather than the VF40 that came stock on the EJ255. I can chirp the tires gears 1-3 assuming I'm still in boost with every shift. Since it is a rather unassuming station wagon I feel like I'm invisible to the police.

    Aggressive/assertive I'm careful and cautious,but if I have room to move and can do it safely,I'm going for it.I don't hesitate.
    I would say excellent,13 years no fault accidents and I drive for a living.

    Sorry about your misconception of my truck. It has no lift, no super swampers, it has definite signs of being wheeled, something the above illustrated offending mall cruiser Super Duty (Ford's one failure at building trucks) has probably never done. Spinning donuts in the school's field is not wheeling by the way.

    The Great White Buffalo not long before I acquired a BuckStop Bumper set for it;
    Notice the Drake Welding rack, complete with some cabers for mighty Scotsmen to throw around at the Celtic games? Also had to repair the step after an almost-high-center incident at Hollister Hills SVRA. I was unsticking some dOOds almost new Heep.

    For a boi who loves cars so much, I have a bit of a shameful secret: I've got no wheels. Or even a license for that matter. Although, there is a broken down '92 F-Series truck that's technically mine, if my little brother doesn't want it.

    i have had a few cars that we all shitty and got scrapped eventually but the one i have now is my favorite, it's a little white Hyundai hatchback, and i dont use it much now because we cant afford many trips and i dont have my job anymore, but my bf drives it for me when we do go out.

    i dont like driving because i have problems with sitting still and i disassociate a lot which is dangerous and my spine hurts after a while because i'm too tall in the torso but too short in the arms and legs, but i try to stay calm when driving. sometimes i drive leisurely and sometimes I'm really on edge/scared and sometimes I am just kind of on auto pilot.

    i live in a college town and the drivers here are awful.. just awful. i'll come home crying because while I was driving my friend to her job, multiple idiots on the road come way too close to driving into me and pulling other crazy stunts that make me fear my life. I always try to drive defensively. I make mistakes sometimes. Once I forgot that my blinker was on for way too long. I wouldnt say anyone is 10/10 driving since no one is perfect, but I believe that you can come close if you're aware and drive defensively. i'm good at driving from having done it for years, but i'm not a perfect driver. a police officer rear ended me at a yellow light once though, that was the worst because the city was an asshole about paying the costs and the police wouldn't give me the report.

    asshole drivers get glares from me if they do it to my friends but when i'm driving I just focus on being safe and to be honest the amount of assholes and idiocy on the road here doesn't surprise me after all these years so i just say "that's how people drive here"

    2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5i (N/A but still fun as hell!), 5 speed, 68k on motor and 130k on body.
    I'm a fun driver, a little aggressive but I'll never tailgate or cut someone off. I'm very defensive and I'm always calculating the next move since everyone in Louisiana is a terrible driver.
    I am a damn good driver, and have only been in one wreck which wasn't my fault in the 10 years I've been driving. I was rear ended at 50mph because an old man fell asleep behind the wheel, but my 97 Pathfinder saved my life and ran 8 more months after the wreck no problem.
    I deal with assholes kind of poorly, and I need to work on it. I literally go ape all of the time, and I have tried smashing someones windshield with a tire iron in the past. I'm calm and collected all of the time, but if you intentionally piss me off while driving it will really PISS ME OFF. But hey...I'm working on it.

    I drive a hunk of crap called a 1999 volkswagon golf 5 speed manual transmission fuel injected 4 cylinder gas engine.
    Im not really into cars. Driving makes my anxiety flare up. Where im from they dont even repaint the lines on the road, so in a 4 lane road you dont even know wherw you are. Im thinking about just selling the damn thing and buying a boosted board. Since ill be living in a very dense city soon. Kinda like newyork but smaller. Honestly i hate cars and i hate driving.

    Oh wow, your truck doesn't look like one that belongs to a compensating jerk (Although I never do have anything good to say about Ford drivers), it looks pretty normal. Why you have cabers? Do you throw them around like that weird Scott sport, or do you just have them for the lulz?

    Driving is pretty scary, just so much is going on. Sorry to here about your unfortunate encounter with a pig who couldn't drive, hope I don't come across one like that.
    A driver who has some aggression on the road but is still courteous is something I respect. When you drive it's crazy because you can like see everything that's going on around you, sort of exciting.

    You're from the South? Man, I think drivers from California suck, how do you think they compare to Southern drivers? Sucks to hear about your collision, I found out how much being rear ended sucks not long ago. I got some license plates written down of some asshole drivers I've encountered, probably going to slash their tires or make a site to shame those drivers publicly; I think it's justified to do something like smash their windshield if they are going to be an asshole who doesn't care about anyone else's safety, although I think those kind of people deserve the worst, like never being able to drive again if you know what I mean.
    Hah, you got a hipster car!

    Driving is intense man, I agree. It's really stupid how the roads are in disrepair, the states don't care about them at all.
