Look, wrx and sti's are really fucking fast. For between 20k - 30k stock you can get a car that can hang with an e46 m3 (sti's can at least). If you're talking bang for your buck performance-wise the sti is a MUCH better deal. If you spend 50-60k (cost of a new m3) on mods for an sti you'll have a lambo-killer.
But you're all missing the point. It's not straight performance that draws us to bimmers, its the mix of luxury, style and performance. If everyone wanted as much performance for the cheapest price possible everyone would be driving sti's and evo's...
New corvette can beat a 911, but i'd go 911. The evo fq can beat lambo's but I'll take a lambo any day. There is a dodge viper right now (can't think of the name) that has 1100 hp and can go 0-60 in under 3 seconds. But I'd still take an enzo over it!
Going 0-60 0.3 seconds slower is a small sacrifice for having a B-M-W.
