    I have a lot of trouble understanding why someone would trade a WRX for a car that's smaller and heavier (3,409 pounds).

    we actually were looking at the dodge viper srt10 before getting the sl500... but my dad liked the automatic better.

    --------------
    anyhow, i dont know how fast the g35 automatic is... i wanna drive one soon. not dissing automatics, i love autos too... my wrx(now my brothers) was an automatic and had a lot of fun in it. trust me, they can be made fast too. what do they run... i thought i had seen mid high 14's with the automatic g35 s.c. the best ive ever seen for a stock r32 is a 13.8. usually, good drivers hit about 14.0-14.2 with about 98-100mph trap speed. i know the best ive seen for a stock g35 stick is a 14.2 @ 99-100mph... so why guess is... which both equal drivers, the r32 will win... especially with the AWD launch. but on the street, it probably would be a toss up.

    I test drove an R32 when shopping around for cars. I really enjoyed the car but thought it was overpriced personally. JUST A PERSONAL OPINION.

    ppmotorsports, trust me, i love the wrx. i was one of the first to buy one when they came out in 2001. around my area, there were only one other wrx. now, i seem to see more wrx's then mustangs. ok, that may be just a bit of an over exaggeration, but it is true, there are so many wrx's out there that the only way to be unique is to 'mod' it. i went up to woodfield a few weeks back and i saw more wrx's (and srt-4's) then any other car. i personally wanted a car that is very unique... r32 is extremely, at 5000 being made final, it will be very hard to see one in a daily drive. that's why i love it. the pro's on the r32 are more than the wrx. anyone that has driven in one can comment on this. the only cons i see is the overall price, hard-to-mod, maybe prestige(though the r32 is the golf of all golf's in europe). I give the r32 to edge over the wrx for build quality, comfort, drive, power(stock for stock), torque, leather, sport seats, luxury(compared to wrx). hey, stock for stock, the r32 will beat a stock wrx. i'm personally looking for an all around car, and thats what i found in the r32. others find it in the wrx. its what ever makes of it. on, i give the r32 the edge in handling too. i can do things in the r32 that the wrx couldn't even come close.

    westside wrx, can i call you an elitist WRX owner? i think i could. drive the car and then make smart comments. i've driven the wrx, ive owned one longer than you probably have. may of 2001 till 5 months ago. i know how some vw guys can be, but its not only vw people that feel this way, but many wrx owners, and many mustang owners, etc.

    Interestingly enough, I seem to see more R32s than SRT-4s. (Trust me, I know they're R32s and not just Golfs.) Not to say everyone in Southern California will agree with me, but in my area and the areas I go to, R32s are bound to pop up more often than SRT-4s. Hell, there's an R32 down the street from me, and not counting that one, I still see more of them.

    My comment was about your "rah-rah" postings, not the car. I have no problem with you owning an R32. It's your money...

    exactly. everyone has their own tastes.

    deeeznuttts, u must live in an area that the general must love the r32, thats why u see so many. the reason i said that the r32 is unique is because they are only making 5k of them and thats it. im just stating that it is a rare car compared to the wrx, srt-4, and especially the 350z. im not putting down any of these cars.
