If you can "easily" afford an M3, then get one and slap on an ESS blower kit... you'll never have to look over your shoulder for 99.999% of the STis behind you.
True, hell I'd say stock for stock & mod for mod an evo wins... either way, I feel that if you can afford to even consider an M3, don't even bother looking at cars in a level below that of the M3. It would be like me going a few years ago saying "I want the Evo X, but should I consider the Civic Si?"
...how is this thread even still alive? I think all points have been proven.
