Man, I'll tell you right now. It's going to be on. They're pretty quick. Just try for a good launch and don't miss any shifts. I don't see him totally smoking you though. Just get the launch down and give her hell. !Laugh!

Good luck with the M3.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

<------ Click to see what I'm workin' with. ;)

I've put a few k miles on a 99' M3 convertable so I think I'm a pretty good judge on this one. The WRX is slightly faster 0-60 if you get a good launch but high end the wrx can't keep up with the 3.2L If you don't get a good launch though, you might look pretty bad. The M3 is not slow. I think the quarter mile favors the M3 slightly but it's a drivers race.

Then again if he's automatic and you're stick, that would be enough to give you the advantage.

Want to kick his ass? Make him drive a small road course in the snow. RWD suckage!

Beat them pretty soundly on the 1/8 here. Go stage 2 and they will never catch up. Old factor plus they are not really that huge on hp or torque.

an STi is a whole different ballgame. You could give the M3 80+hp more and it'd still not keep up with an STi from a decent start. Why? The m3 is 20+% heavier.

You give that M3 80HPmore and your in trouble. Like i said, it was lucky to be only about a car lenght behind the STI. as I see these cars are no joke. My buddies looking at a 2000-2003 cant remember exact year, but hes looking to run me. Now will that year M3 run me....Im not sure but could be interesting.

99 m3 = 240hp
2001 m3 = 320hp

there's a big difference (IE 80hp)

14.2 in a stock 02... you should be THRILLED
14.0 in a 97 m3 is not bad at all either. I commend you both on excellent driving

love em both

I love m3s. IN fact I have always wanted one but can't afford one! I think wrxs are the best bang for your buck around in terms of performance. M3s always seem to be seting the standard for performance sedan/coupe type cars, so if you are keeping up or beating one in your wrx, great job!! esp ### you probably paid half!! STis are simply amazing...they are almost as fast as the 2005 m3s. I must say though, something I like about the m3s is that there is no turbo lag...
