    even topgear said one of the fastest 4 door cars money can buy you need to spend £30 to £40 000 to get a faster car faster than any bmw

    it would prob give a scooby a bashing yes, they are quick.. TBH scoobys usually don't worry the GSi, particularly on the M-way..they seem to lose the 'grunt' and acceleration.

    Traffic light grand prix..now that would be interesting..

    Sorry if I sound daft, but I don't like the clocks on the VXR. Not at all, they look horrible !! what are the red lines around the dials all about ? I much prefer the standard/sri etc clocks.


    Wouldn't say no to one though

    Might be a different story round the twisty bits.

    Sisters boyfriend has a 2005 WRX with the PPP tuning pack on it and I have never sat in a car that can corner at seriously high speed like it can.

    Dunno about the VXR as I've never been in one, but all that power and torque going through the front two wheels only would make for an "interesting" cornering experience I would imagine!!.
