Sorry for the broad specs. little lazy right now but i think you all have some idea of how fast they are.
i dont know if i should add dodge stratus, the V6 model. tell me if it should be in this comparo, or any other model that should be added.

EASILY the type-S for me, now that it has a few JDM integra type-R parts in it.. much improved from the last one, nice 8400 RPM redline, NA, and 6 speed Manual :)
And, i'd think the WRX, and SRT-4 could be added too. :wink:
Oct 19, 2004, 2:32 AM
I think the WRX is a sedan...4 doors...
Anyways...I'm all for the Tiburon GT since it's the cheapest by about $4,500 in the US. For that price, I'd drop in some new brakes, and a Jackson Racing Supercharger...About 250+ bhp and some good stoppers. 8)

Yeh, but you can also get the WRX in a hatch sorta thing remember :wink:
My pick would be the tC, because it looks awesome.
Oct 19, 2004, 6:03 AM
I pick the Type S for it's looks and good power output
i dont know enough about trhe cobalt and the scion to comment on them
And i dont think the hyundai is as good as the others

I am with acura..... it's from japan very sport but i like Chevy a little bit..... :)

From the cars offered in the poll I would take the Acura, because it looks better and has a stronger engine than the other three, but I would rather choose an Alfa Romeo GT 3.2 V6 or a Peugeot 307 CC 2.0 Sport, but I think it can't be included in this comparison, because it's actually a convertible with retractable hardtop. :)

type s for me, its the fastest, best looking imo, and its reliable and safe :wink:
plus - 105 horses per litre

Ok, I think I should bolster my choice...
About a year ago Apexi came out with a Tiburon for about $25,000 (including installation and parts) that had about 250 horsepower, great handling from the upgraded suspension and stopped on a dime with the newer brakes. And since it was a new platform you knew it haaaaad to look good. So it had a host of visual "upgrades" to go along with the style.
BTW, the model they chose wasn't even the V6 model, it was the four pot. 8)

cobalt probably. It's hands down the best looking there. But i'd like it in either black or that nice blue color they offer.
Oct 19, 2004, 11:11 AM
I'll go the chevy
Although i have no idea about the car
it just looks better than the rest. The RSX is just too common and I'm not a fan of Korean Cars
Oct 19, 2004, 11:44 AM
SVT focus might be another candidate, along with GTI, maybe even the VR6 :wink:
Oct 19, 2004, 1:13 PM
i was thinking about adding those but they are hatchbacks so i dont know if they should go in this comparison.
Oct 19, 2004, 6:44 PM
My choice is the Cobalt SS like the power and the looks and it is a big step up from the Cavalier.
Oct 19, 2004, 9:53 PM
I will go for the RSX.
100+ hp per liter
Oct 19, 2004, 10:22 PM
I would have to choose the Scion Tc because of it's stylish looks
Oct 20, 2004, 5:11 PM
EASILY the RSX: stylish, reliable, sporty, nice Honda engine and transmission... a very good car overall. :D
Oct 20, 2004, 6:38 PM
Acura RSX Type-S, hands down
But I also would think it'd be cool to get a base tC and turbo that sucka. pssssst blap blap!
Jul 02, 2005, 12:42 AM
rsx easy choice.
Jul 02, 2005, 12:50 AM
Integra Type-S (Well, RSX by your standards).
Jul 02, 2005, 2:10 AM
This one. I dunno...I just think it has a little more umph.
Jul 02, 2005, 2:10 AM
Out of the LimITED SELECTION of cars on this list.....
i say Cobalt SS...It's a cavalier spoof, but it's still the fastestand best looking of all the cars on the list....
lambo or holden

Where is the Nissan 350z?
Jul 03, 2005, 6:37 AM
Because the 350z doesn't belong to the category of cars being discussed.
