I've never been a fan of the typical decals that people have: bags, turbos, etc. I don't mind having a couple decals that promotes brands that are on the car. But yeah, I get it... there's definitely a fine line.

I have respect for Subies, but yeah, not my taste either. But I completely don't hate JDM either, I just like my German cars.

I can imagine AWD is really useful on all those crazy hills... crazy inclined hills + wet roads = lack of traction

Was in Santa Monica the other day and had to snap some shots of the car on the top floor of a public parking garage. This was on 4th Street & Broadway for those who are curious. The photos are surprisingly not heavily altered as the lighting was already perfect... they're basically raw from the iPhone.
