So if some magazines are finding the Eclipse manual getting a 15.00, 14.9, and car and driver getting, and other 'better' mags getting a 14.5, that means the absolute lowest the mags are getting is a 14.5 for the manual Eclipse, with a few others finding times closer to 15s. NO mags are scoring a manual WRX higher than a 14.2, 14.3 that I have seen, with most mags testing it lower at or around 14.10 pretty much across the board, (and obviously we have heard higher from certain members on here and other WRX sites.) Point being that even according to the "less acurate" reviews, the WORST time found for the manual WRX is still about a half scond quicker than the BEST magazine time found for the manual Eclipse. So just to give him some idea, a stock manual, as I said earlier, should eek out the win.

    Motor Trend = 14.2 @ 101 (link not available because site is gay. I am looking at the mag in person right now though).

    I guess that puts a pretty big hole in your no one getting better than 14.5 theory

    Lol, thanks REX! Thanks for helping him out and posting some more times, but 14.4, 14.5 is still a little behind the manual WRX (from what magazines are getting and what members are getting.) So there you go adWRXi, REX and I have found you more 1/4 times than you could shake a stick at! (If it means that much to you, race an Eclipse once you get your WRX. ) Hopefully that helps you in your 'quest' and in your decision reguarding the WRX! Let us know if you have any other questions, and we will try to do our best to help you out.

    Oh, and adWRXi, yes the WRX requires premium fuel, (a trade off to increase performance,)but according to its sticker, gets 20-21 in the city, and 26 on the freeway. Not PRIUS-esque, but then again, if fuel economy was your make or break feature on a car, I doubt you would be looking at the WRX. However, those estimates of 20 and 26 aren't bad, considering that is equal and on par with most V6, and right there with the GT Eclipse you are talking about, (18 city, 27 highway.)

    **REX, any thoughts on adWRXi's post on that 05 WRX for 17,500? Thumbs up or thumbs down?

    Again, welcome to the forum adWRXi! Look around and post up if you have any questions!
