yah, sti has a higher top speed then the 325 and that seems to be the car of choice here, and 0-60 time(not sure about 1/4 times, but im guessing the sti is faster in that too) so why? why BMW?






and is just me or is every one ignoring my posts? lol

Bmw?

Go take one out for a spin. Have you done that before? Then make some comparisons.

Yes. The STi is damn fast, and it can be made to go VERY fast. It's no cheapy though. With the same comparisons, speed that is, buy a Mustang!

With BMW's. It's not all about speed. In my opinion, it's about the whole package. And as the saying goes....at the end of the day....which car would you be most happy with?

All comes down to personal taste. And THIS IS A BMW forum BTW!

well for one, the BMW is not just a sports car, its also a luxury in every way, hence the price and do not forget the history behind the car, BMW are beautiful machines inside and out, even in the 1980's BMW's looked sexy, if you want to compare an STI to a Really good sports BMW, compare it with the M3, go to the dealership and ask for a test drive, you will leave the car with a huge smile on your face, for instance compare it to any benz the are supercharged(the AMG) and look at the bimmer, it can compare very well ad its not supercharged or turboed, it has a BMW team, it has a GTR team, it had very good results at le mans, it has 4 inlines for the lower class, V6 for the more richer, V8 for the power freaks, and V12 for the luxury bigs....i dont know what you want more than that, luxury, speed, sex.....its a mans thing

nothing makes bmw so great, they are overpriced and represent a social standing, thats about, there not any better then most other cars, alot of people won't admit to that but i know its the truth. just something that gives the impression that ur higher on the social ladder.

Why BMW? I needed a car that yelled: "I'm an asshole". And no other brand communicates this message better than BMW.
Every time I drive this car, people look at me like I'm an arrogant prick; there's nothing more satisfying than that.

Straight line speed is not really the BM strong suit...it's the fun to drive factor. When you turn the steering wheel, the car reacts INSTANTLY. There is no lag time, there is no push, no lack of feedback. No other car i've driven (and I've driven a lot) is able to come close.
When all other cars hit 100km/h in 2nd, you have to go to 3rd- which means you can enjoy one more sweet redline before breaking any traffic laws.

About the WRX, sure it's faster...but...have you seen the interior???

So let me get this straight. You are compating Subarus flagship top of the line car, to BMW's base model bottom of the line shitbox? Thats a riot.

One of my friends has a new WRX STi. A couple months ago he was next to me on a double lane street and we both gunned it. 2nd/3rd gear pull from 40-70MPH and I walked on him BAD. This is in a 1987 325iS. Needless to say this is him now:
