The C4 WRC made its debut at the 2007 Monaco rally where it came first 1-2... a sign of things to come. This also marked Citroen's full manufacturer return to the WRC after a slight sabbatical. With Loeb at the helm the C4 WRC is proving to be just as good-- if not better than Citroen's previous competitor, the Xsara, which still competes to this day in the hands of privateers.

I'm just tired of everything in the cool wall being cool or frozen all the time, it is a little ridiculous. We used to be much more discerning a couple years ago here...now everyone says it's cool for this or that reason, and then defend it saying "it's just how I feel! Get off my back!". It's obnoxious.

Well maybe if people would post more uncool cars to the wall, they'd end up in the uncool and MJU sections. I mean, it still can happes...in the past six months, the Maxima ended up in uncool and the Toyota Urban Cruiser ended up in MJU. Remarkably, the Genesis Sedan ended up in uncool (I guess before most DSers decided it was one of the best cars of 2009). But nowadays, for whatever reason, people only tend to post pretty badass cars to the cool wall, which means they end up in frozen or cool. There's not a doubt in my mind that if someone spent 10 minutes to write out a poll for the Corolla XRS, it would end up in MJU...but who amongst the regulars nowadays would waste ten minutes on that?

And I'm really not sure where you're coming from saying it's obnoxious when people vote based solely upon a visceral reaction. When people try to reason through their vote, saying why something is cool or uncool, everybody tears into everybody else because "that's not what cool is about," and you end up with an bitchy shitstorm like the GT-R thread.
