...how is this thread even still alive? I think all points have been proven.
You know, all of this makes 0 sense. In terms of all-round performance, autox, straight line speed, the Evo/STis are maybe even better cars than the M3 and are quite easy to drive fast. BUT.. the quality is light years apart between the two, and the M3 has an intangible appeal that can't be explained with performance specifications. I would think most of us did NOT buy an M3 for its quickness...
