Hey guys, I see some guys trying to say that a STOCK 3.5 Altima is faster than our new 06 WRX stock. Every independent and magazine test has our 06 WRX faster than the Altima. Our car is able to do more, AWD, etc., and coming stock with much better features, (big brake kit with red covers, AWD, functinal hood scoop, etc., and being a much lighter car. So I clicked and saw this posted on the MSN auto report, which has the WRX as faster:
Which has the manual doing a 5.7, and even the autos doing a 6.5 (still faster than even the manual Altima 3.5) and then I posted this report of the Altima 3.5 SE-R Which at its best still ran a respectable 6.3, but that is their top model and that time is with the manual Our Autos stock are just as fast as their SE-R top of the line manuals.
While I understand people want to respect and defend the car they drive, they still won't believe it. (While I admit, if I had paid over 30,000 for a heavier V6 sedan that simply is a sedan with a V6, and not much else in reguards to suspension or performance, I would be a little upset). I understand and I love that our WRX are fast, and still made for more than just a straight line. I know they are dependable, and offer far more possibilites if modded, tuned, especially if turbo lag is reduced with a better exhaust and tuning.

Anyone else run into this talk from Altima owners?
