I got of work, and I'm heading home, and I see a 04/05 wrx STi behind...naturally, the STi being my favorite car, i did a couple of double takes in the rearview (this goes on for about 2 minutes)....Consequently, I see lights flashing...I didn't know what to think but I immediately pull into the nearest emergency street shoulder. and voila, its the STi


The officer approached the car, he was polite, and my infraction was my tires two right tires crossing into the next lane (woops
).  He said he was just keeping the streets clear of drunk drivers. I asked him about the car and he said its a way to combat illegal street racing. He let me go without even a warning, just told me to leave.

The car was red all over, gold wheels, unmarked, and had strobes in the hoodscoop 


This was a State Trooper btw...

For my MA heads this happened on Soldiers Field Road between Harvard College & Boston University (there's a state police station right near there)



I can't find any pics of the specific car but heres some others:

Pull over dudes who are trying to race or are speeding on the streets, ppl dont usually slow down for unmarked sti's.

Yep there are a lot of these kind of cars down here in South Florida. Usually blacked out Cobras, 350zs, Evos etc. They were pulling the entrapment bit with them a few years ago, not sure if they still are.

Explain?

sti's are mid 13's stock correct? i dont know bout in boston but around here I dont know very many street racers non ricer/mustang gt's that the sti will keep up with.I realise that the sti is faster then the crown vic's but its not gonna do much imo.most of the street racers that are gonna run from the cops are gonna be alot faster then that sti..Im not gonna front tho if i was a cop id love to drive around in an sti

I think he has a strong dislike towards STI's... just taking a guess here

Not at all I love subys,evo's and so on.I almost bought an sti last summer actually..I just think there is alot better options for combating illegal street racing...03-04 cobras,z06's and so on.

The cops arent trying to win races with the STi.... If youre in a modded car and you pull up next to an STi and hes revving, youre probably gonna start speeding to see who is faster.... Once you start speeding, lights come on and you get pulled over. Thats how it works. If you pull up next to a crown vic you think you'd be stupid enough to start messing around and see how fast it is?
