coming home from work lets see.... wednesday... the first day before the snow. yellow gti rolls up next to me. its a beatiful car. nice body kit rims lowered CF hood etc. i have seen the car around town many times (ill take pics next time i see it if i got the camera with me) anyways hes got the vr6 badge on the front, so i was thinking this wasnt going to look good... anyways we get on the free way im low in 4th and i downshift to 3rd and we are off. so im climbing in 4th and i look in my rear view mirror and see hes atleast 5 cars behind me. turns out hes just got the vr6 badge and not the vr6 so i killed a 2.0 not vr6..... not as cool! anyways thats my kill for this week.

i dont know about taking the e46 m3.... i know the sti loses to the e46 m3, atleast the races i have seen between them, (in real life at the strip) which makes sense to me... and isnt the evo 8 a little slower than the sti due to the sti being a 2.5 litre etc... which in all makes the evo 8 way more impressive since its ALmost as fast as the sti out of a 2.0 litre.... to bad the evo 8 dont got the boxter engine though! makes it :gay haha

bigred - there are many different model evo 8 all of which would beat an m3 and a couple of them would destroy them so badly it would be embarrassing to watch. Take for example the brand new 2005 lancer evo 8 FQ400 which has a top speed of 175mph and a 0-62mph time of 3.5 seconds compared to the m3's 155mph/5.5 respectively.

Even the slowest evo 8 the FQ280 has a 0-62 time of 4.8 seconds which is still 0.7 quicker than the M3. I once watched a tv program over in the uk called 'top gear' and they raced a lamborghini murcielago vs the evo 8 fq400 and the evo kept up all the way around the race track no problem... I dont think an m3 could keep up with a lambo, do you? Oh and the quarter mile time for an fq400 is around 11 seconds I think.

But does it beat it badly, which model sti are you referring to....?

You cant really compare a bmw m3 to an evo because they are two totally different cars. The M3 is your super quick business execs car where as your evo8 is a stripped out road legal rally car which is designed for one sole purpose - to rally.

I think the M3 would give an evo8 280 a decent run for its money (but still not beat it) but the evo8 FQ400 is absolutely nuts, it's an evo8 on serious amounts of steroids, this thing can do 0-60 as quick as a ferrari enzo and can keep up with the best super cars costing 5 times more!

The M3 is a really nice car, look at the kit it has inside compared to an evo8. Personally i would choose an M3 over the evo simply because of the luxury combined with speed... I would rather be cruising down the motorway (freeway) in an M3 with cruise control and heated leather sports seats than caining it down the motorway having my spine jarred over every bump like in the evo8 (maybe be a slight exageration on the ride quality of the evo compared to the beamer but you get what i mean).

Anyway nuff said both are different cars which excel in their own merits...

Adam, your friend doesnt have an Evo 8, Evo 8 is something that came out like 3 days ago...i bet its normal Evo 6 or something, not the 400bhp one...

I know that there are 400hp EVos in the works and such - STis overseas with more hp and so on and so forth...but as for STis and EVOs available (right now) and on the road here in the states...well I'm 3 for 3 against each - 3 STIs and 3 EVOs....at least one EVO was modded a bit (it certainly looked nice and kept very close...but I pretty much maintained a 1/2+/minimum car length lead all the way to 110-110 where I pulled away even more). In the end I think that how well any of these cars (incl e46M3) fares against one another is driver, launch and circumstance dependent - they are all very close.

oh and I really trashed a Gti in my ZHP this morning - not even close...still I think they are/can be very cool cars. They look nice and can be done up nice and that little 1.8 turbo can really be made to scream with the right mods. I like the R32 even better (of course) and ran very even with one a few months back (in the ZHP)...perhaps I nosed ahead just a tad - but it was pretty much dead even...now in my Audi he would have been dust....

Evo 8 has been out for a while. I didn't think evo 6's were available in US so it would be a right hand drive?

Isnt it EVO VII here in the states? Don't know really. But I don't think the 400hp model is availble yet - as far as I know...

Now, checking on thier home page, the Evo VIII is available at ~$30k with 276hp all wheel drive.... with summer tires from the dealer only. Where are you getting 400hp from? And is that from the same 2.5L 4 cylinder?
