    I've driven a '97 and an '02 M3. Not super impressed to tell the truth. Not sayin my WRX is better by any means... i just don't like BMW's. They're overrated. Comfort's for panzies.

    Wingless alas. Too bad it took a 50 ton truck to make it happen.

    the M3 coupe is faster than the conv.

    0-60: 5.2 for the conv, 4.8 for the coupe

    from my personal experience, the M3 is a good bit faster than the WRX, especially with the SMG (near-instant shifts)

    but the M3 also has more potential. supercharged M3's regularly run near 520 HP.

    As owner of both, I will say that the M3 is nice, as long as it isn't snowing or you need some rear doors.

    The M is notoriously bad from a launch, and the WRX is notoriously good from a launch, so its hard to really gauge.

    the M3 is definately not overpriced. you get what you pay for.

    like a telescoping steering wheel. (my one complaint about my WRX)
    Who needs signatures?

    Ya... more potential if you want to spend 40k for a used M3 then another 12k for the kit to s/c it. If i had 52g's to spend on a wrx... it would blow the doors off a s/c'd M3. Maybe the interior isn't even close to as nice for the WRX but i'd sacrifice it for speed any day.

    My friend has a cobb stage I 02 wrx his boss has an E46 M3 with gears, exhaust and suspension work. Both of them race their cars on a closed course so they know their cars potential. They raced from a stop a few times. The wrx will jump out and hold the M3 till 80mph or so than its goodnight for the wrs as the M3 will fly by, a Stage II 02-05 wrx should hold it off till 90mph from a stop, and a stage II 06-07 wrx should hold it off a bit longer. From a stop a wrx/sti can put up a pretty good fight to any legal speed limit on the road, from a roll its a different story.
