I looked into an R32 awhile back, for the price of them and the performance (or lack there of) its definetly not worth its price to me. They do seem to be more rare than the subies, so maybe thats one thing it has over it.
Good find btw John.
...depends what year WRX you're talking about. They're a little different and many are not stock any more. A Stage 2 WRX would be able to compete pretty well with it, but I think a stock WRX might have some problems - unless it was an 09+ which received a slightly better turbo than previous years.
And besides, that's technically considered bench racing and it's against forum policy
I was just curious about the R32 to STi comparison, but now you're getting a little picky. Is the difference in power going to affect your decision to purchase one model over another? Because, again, you can easily modify all three cars to be significantly faster than stock.
Well, if you're not concerned with how reliable these sources are, this is what I came up with as far as stock 1/4 mile times if you're just looking for a rough comparison. Considering the 2008 R32 runs about 14.4, a stock 2002-2008 WRX should run somewhere in the range of 14.1-14.7 and a stock 2009+ WRX should run somewhere around 13.5, so I think there's your answer. Any stock 02-08 WRX should hang with a 2008 (+/-) R32 and a stock 09+ WRX should probably be able to beat it.
