    Last year when GM was really in trouble they sold all their stock/shares of Subaru. Then about 6-8 months ago (If I remember correctly) Toyota bought all or most of those shares.

    Without a doubt...5th gear ill pull on you and you will not catch up...

    ps. 6th gear pulls hard as hell to.

    The IS350 has very potent lowend torque, as does the larger V8 LS varients. Not to mention the new camry make 250tq and peaks at 4,700rpm... which is not too bad. Plus, I doubt Toyota will play a large enough roll in Subaru's decisions to negatively persuade the torque numbers of the STi.
    Great, it's got a broad torque curve and still a turd. Lexus makes great cars as does toyota, but they'd be the last place I would look at for a sporty car. HOpefully they don't ruin the STi.

    I saw a bunch of posts awhile ago, when the MS6 1st came out, by an MS6owner, on a Mazda board and a bunch of parts were actually stamped with "FOMOCO" . He removed some parts, uprights and such, trying to find more ailgnment adjustments. So much for no Ford parts... meehh..I'm sure someone really interested could find said posts...Me=too lazy

    Pretty much any of those Ford partially owned companies, Aston, Mazda etc.. WILL have some actual Ford parts.. Does that mean the car is a POS??.. I don't really think so.. I actually think the MS6 is a great FWD.... FWD car.. which living mostly in the NE would jus be a hassle for me.. so I wouldn't own one.. Now.. if I lived in a no snow zone, AND didn't wanna mod my car, I'd seriously think bout the MS6..

    Like so many things in life, cars are a matter of taste. Like, if I wanted a ripper of a muscle car, unike SOUTHPAW, I'd be gettin a Viper and twinturboin that to 1,000+ HP... I jus think muscecars shoud be hot and cramped inside..

    Jus be glad that we all live in a wonderful time with tons of great cars to choose from... I'm even happier i get to make my living being invovled with all these wickedly fun autos..

    interesting.

    It makes the most power between 2500rpm and 5000rpm. So yea when on the highway it pulls hard with no lag and has 300ftq at 2500rpms. Can your WRX do this, I think not?
