no one has pink.....it stands out......

its a different culture....pink doesnt mean #@%#@%#@% in japan

just be thankful the intake manifold is red and not pink

i think it's pretty obvious

The obvious reason for the pink STI emblems is that the japanese engineers wanted to appease the popular children's television character "piglet" from the hit show "Winnie the Pooh." Obviously one of the japanese either owed him money or had a rather taboo one night stand with him and wanted to keep him quiet. Obviously.

BoostedBoxer is right. The pink color doesnt mean anything. Look at any of the ### magazines. Many cars there have pink emblems on them whether they are Acura, Honda, Mitshubishi, or the mighty Subaru.

In japan pink isn't considered a feminine color. That's been their color for ages, why change for the us market?
