    06 sti vs. 07 speed3

    Just raced my brother in laws 07 speed 3 the other day. Have to say I was impressed with his car. From a dead stop,(I launched like poop) up to 100 I beat him by over 2 cars. I suspect with a good launch it will at least 3 or more. both cars are bone stock(4 now) and I give mazda credit, although it's no scooby!

    Is the mazda a 5 speed or a 6 speed? lol

    With the right mods do you think your sti could get in the mid 7's?

    haha feel free to add to it *no pun intended*

    20-100

    the first race we did was around 20 to 100. I suppose it would be closer if we started on the highway, but I was still pulling on him shifting from 4th to 5th. I'll find out soon though! I should have some numbers from new england dragway in the spring too!

    i ran a ms3 on the higway in sick traffic...id drop to third and wind out, i had to catch up to him but eventually after much wreckless driving i caught up and passed him twice@!!! lol they dont have alotta top end , i was surprised cuz wrx's ahve terrible top end!! he was pissed that i was keepin up and eventually passed him(bad lane choice)
    i was actually on the wait list for a ms3 but the guy was giving me 12,500 for my 03 350z w/ 58k miles(new tires)...i eventually got my deposit back and went str8 to a subaru dealership and after dying to get an sti the price was too high, they gave me 14k for my z and i got the 06 wrx during x mas i got 3500 off the sticker i paid 21800$ + finance. But the ms3 is a nice lil car the interior is nice too. but now that i have my wrx the AWD feel and all the mods ive made ahve really grown on me this car is now a part o me especially after digging in her guts doing surgery!

    What are your mods? Stock to stock the MS3 will hand a WRX its ass up top. I have a stage2 and my brothers MS3 started pulling on me after 100mph when it was stock. Now with just an intake he put down 278whp at the dyno.

    I would of course rather have my rex, but the MS3's aint no joke.

    Question eh?

    EDIT**
    Oh i guess were editing posts now? well then in that case, i never said i was fast0r than him( he actually passed me doin like `100+ on the right lane and i was in left lanbe chillin cruise control set @ 75), i said i passed him a few times because he was a idi0t and picked the wrong lanes in heavy traffic(**** happens, he was a good driver ijust got lucky), its not the car its the driver(dont you watch initial D? lol). i know the ms3 is no joke, its light and quick! as far as looks our new 08 hatch(as far as looks go) destroy the ms3. I liked the ms3 so much i was on waiting list for it actually before i bought my 06 wrx, but the guy would'nt give me what i wanted for my trade in(14k for a 350 Z w/ 59k miles).
    Im so glad i didnt get that ms3, i love my subie and the tight community( i got a wicked deal christmas before last, they were trying to get rid of the 06's to make room for the 07's and i got 3500 $ off the sticker ! If i ever do switch cars(which i probably wont for at least 4-5 yrs) it would be to an sti or an evo.

    edit* question about mod list(its short) - Right now my wrx is pretty much stock engine wise(minus a apex gt spec CBE), i got an HKS downpipe(but im thinking about sending it back and getting a bell mouth ERZ instead), kartboy SS, prodrive springs, 17" Rota Tarmac II's, im rolling on toyo fz4 rubber, myfalkenfk452's(http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...d=009970&ar=45) should be arriving wed this week!
    I was gonna go with the azenis rt615's initially but the tread wear rating sucked! and we already have AWD, in the back of my head im thinking shi!t i shulda just got the rt615's but a friend of mines has one with his srt 4 and the wear faaast! but STICk nasty, laminix protective film and piaa yellow fog light bulbs..and thats it..so basically slightly stock still.

    Mod wish list - getting cobb apv.2 soon so i can install that POS hks DP another future mod is a defi boost gauge & then im working on suspension(sway bars, control arms, end links etc etc)

    May i ask why you edited your initial post? if you dont mind me askin

    Not when it's an entertaining post that might be deleted/edited.

    Did you get one???


    call it a bad OTS tune or what you will, but my stock MS3 would have beat the pants off of my stage 2 04 WRX.


    And I agree about 06/07 WRX= SRT-4...

    Lets be careful with this thread, every MS3 thread on here ends up getting closed

    MS3=SRT4

    Everything here counts as a repost.

    Can we just merge this with another dead/closed thread and call it good?
