    They do both cost about the same and yes I will 100% concur with you that the 4G accepts mods very well...and cheaper than it would take to make the EJ257 into the 11s, but if that's the ONLY deciding factor in deciding between these two...yikes. Especially when you put Subaru's collective reliability/longevity history next to Mitsu's and compare them. That being said, I don't want this to turn into another STi vs Evo thread. Both are great cars and both have their positives and negatives and both can outhandle/outaccelerate the 350Z.
    rcas,
    As far as the picture goes, look at her eyes. Have you seen the way a dog/cat, etc. eyes will reflect the flash and make them look pyschotic? I just colored that flash reflection in to make her pupils look her natural color, but left the little tiny dot reflecting the lamp.

    Oh and got the loan today, went to the dealership, signed the papers....only thing remaining is getting the loan paperwork signed by me and my grandma which should happen tommarow. .... If I had gotten my insurance info today I wouldn't be on the forums right now, I'd be blasting around corners this very second....*sigh*.....but tommarow.....tommarow's the day.

    It wasn't the only factor why I went with it, but it was a factor indeed. I'm not too worried about reliability as I don't beat the **** out of my car everyday like some owners do and then complain about breaking stuff online. You enjoy your car and I will enjoy mine.

    Anyways, to add to the topic, 350z's are ****ing slow.

    I guess, IMO anything under 14 is decent. 13.9 isn't slow to me.

    But it's all about perspective...how do you define "fast" or "slow"? I guess it all just depends.

    Everyone will have a different opinion on the matter.

    IMHO:

    16's and up = slow

    15's = decently deal-able

    14's = pretty quick

    13's = quick

    12's = fast

    11's and lower = really fast

    I'd have to agree with that.

    Haha, personally, it's like this:

    16's = Good for gas?
    15's = I can work with that....
    14's = A good place to be, especially for stock.
    13's = Too damn fast for my own good
    12's = WAY too damn fast for my own good
    11's = Way too damn fast for anyone's good. haha

    I think I'm gunna shoot for 13's when I get my Rex.

    8's and under = Barely streetable, if at all.

    Oops, sorry. I should have elaborated. Barely streetable in the sense that the HP an 8's car would have would make the engine/drivetrain barely streetable.

    No no no I can handle that too. I actually own an F-22 Raptor. It's in my backyard right now. It's too slow.

    Haha jk, but yeah so uh, got the Rex today although it wasn't insured otherwise I'd definately still be out.
