There's quite a few car companies in Aus. but Subaru was never one of them. From what I remember....Ford, Toyota and GM/Holden are the major ones.

Hey now. I know a little about cars. But only ones I'd like to drive. Never cared about Subaru.

Maybe you just have small mudflaps. It's nothing to be ashamed about, you just have to make up for it in other areas.

I assumed it had to do with Subaru's rally history, but find it stupid looking.

Bingo. When they stick WRX on the back of a car, they want you to think you're driving a rally car in sheep's clothing.

And you pretty much are. The stock STI is a pretty impressive beast.
