Hi,
Bought an M roadster as I love a fast car. I'm no boy racer but love the occasional race to test car v car. Problem is the only car that ever bother are Golf GTI's and quite frankly it's pointless.

I want to try against a normal M3, Scooby turbo and Evo mark 7/8 to test out both the car and my reactions but nothing yet. What is the point of a fast car unless you can boot it once in a while?

I doubt you'd beat any of the above.

you'd be surprised. depending on the year, that M Roadster could be packing the motor from the e46 M3, all in a lighter package. it'd be a driver's race.

The M motor in the M coupe has only lik 320bhp because of heat issues.

"only" 320hp? that's only down 16 from the M3. plus, the coupe is an altogether (i believe) lighter package.

Mr Brannen is on a distinguished road
Just sold a 330bhp RS Cosworth, and I used to trounce my mate in his M3 everytime, so I would say definately that the M Roadster is out of its depth with an Impreza and certainly with an Evo 8

You might be able to get one of those sububus if you go at speed, they don't have stamina. But others are right... careful (especially) of the R32's. I learned the hard way that they are awful quick. But it's more than doable... some m roadsters get sick quick. I don't know enough about the evo's from personal experience...


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...
