    umm i have a bmw 3 series...but for some reason i take my wrx out of the driveway while i have the choice between the two...no, the three series is not a better car...leather interior and an executive look...wow awesome i personally think e46's are for those who would rather make sweet sweet love to an emlbem then make a good purchase...
    and btw its not a 3 series vs a rex for money...it is a 3 series vs an sti...both will cost u a little under 35k...personally id go with the sti...but hey if u want to pay 35k for a mediocre car with an emblem go for it


    oh yea and the ///m is a complete different story...they r amazing i am not bashing those beatufiul machines

    I can argue it, if you want to bring in value as a criteria. Most people do, even very rich people. So yes, the 330 is a higher quality, better finished, more luxurious vehicle, but it had better be, $15,000 more!

    Look, I love bimmers, and I know that you were just responding to the guy who called the bimmer a "beater" (which of course, it's not), but you can't go the OTHER way and expect people not to call you on it...

    My brother used to have a 330xi automatic, and I can tell you that there is no way that thing would've beat my WRX. He got rid of it before I got my wrx, so we never ran them. Now he's got an M3 and can hand me my ass on a daily basis.

    i understand the bmw is more money. if it was my money, i would buy a rex over a 3series also. only becuase i cant justify spending the extra cash. but price taken out of accountability, the 3 series bmw is a better car all around. best bang for buck, the wrx is better for most people, but machine vs. machine, the 3 series is a better car, and most that have experience with bmw's and other cars would agree. i plan to buy a rex when i have some more money saved up. would i consider a 330ci/xi.... yes. for the price is it worth the extra $ over a rex, no.
    ckxx: you can do what you will with your post. i didnt mean to come of like a pr!ck, but to call a 2k 3 series beemer a beater is just ignorant. i understand/hope you were joking though

    And most that have experience with Ferrari's agree that it's a better car than the WRX. See my point?

    I think we agree on this, at the end of the day. I'll drop it, now...

You will probably either die, or spend some time in jail for the people you killed. Or maybe a cop spots you, there goes your car and license. That's why most smart people let off when speeds get that high. You sir are a idiot!
    WRONG!! smart people DON'T STREET RACE!! "You sir are a idiot!" right back at ya! I was talking about empty FREEWAY we use to get a year or two ago in the middle of the night.

    the 3-series vs Impreza topic has to end somewere. let's just say that if you want performance + luxury + higher quality 3-series is the answer. if you want pure performance + 4wd + affordability the Impreza is the answer.

    Edit: He's actually on that e46fanatics board

    because he doesn't want your exhaoust fumes on his luxury sports car
    if its not fast it better be a show car

    "see with the wrx, in order to get the best launch they reccomend dropping the clutch at redline"

    "Race them on the freeway and you will see their 35% drive train loss come into effect"
    1. Whats so hard about pushing the gas?

    2. Redline? Ya ok......i got an auto so i cant do a real proper launch but 5k is about the max on a manual. (I can only get to 3500 in my auto)

    3. Race is over at 80 for me. So if doing the ricer fly by at 110 is your flavor more power to you.

    Im not directing this towards you jung. Just answering the quotes from the 330 thread. Seems really lame they'd say those things. Except #3......AWD drive does have its penalties.
