I've seen them at a few autocrosse's and they are rocket ships. Comparing them to a 540i really means little since they are a completely different class of car. I've also sat in one and the interior is economy.....but the handling etc is quite amazing especially considering the price.STI faster than a 540I??:yikes: by how much?
I take it the 0-100 (km/h) was with a mild launch?We have a 2005 STI in the family, the car would do a mid 5 second 0-100 1/4 mile time of 13.6 secs. I should know this because it has been raced atleast 20 different times, they are not as quick as people think they are.
+1 on thisSTI way smaller, turbo AWD Etc , just like the Evo Mitsubishi , but they are diffrent class
and i dont think they should be compared to the E39 and im still thinking and E39 will take the STI topspeed wise
i mighbt be wrong
A comfort machine with a racing blood lineif the driver of the sti knows how to launch vs a 540... its over off the line... period. u cant compare the two, as someone said prev. its a totally different class. your comparing a ralley inspired race car to a comfort machine
