    They sound like a friggin kazoo. Less mechanical and more "musical" if anything; if their goal was to achieve an exotic-like sound, it's missing something in the gonad dept.

    Re: All Guys who Drive WRX STIs Have Hairy Palms

    I'm partial to the exhaust note of the boxer 4. I love imports. Shit, I love cars. I do get alot of props for my V when I go hang out with the homies on the block. W3rd!11

    Seriously, that WRX better bring some sauce for the big American cars in the GT series. The Skyline GTR, which I had high hopes for, is getting its ass kicked. I haven't watched much of the GT series, but the bitch I did catch, the poor Nissan wasn't running in the top 20.

    The WRX is bad ass, tho'. Huge, wide wheels, big fender flares and turbo. Things that make me go "BOING!!!"

    Boxer 4s are interesting beasts. They can sound like crap with fartcans. They can sound downright mean with the right plumbing.

    Personally, I'm just glad that I scraped enough money to be among the richest people in the world. Oh wait, nevermind. There are E55 and M5 drivers that laugh at us and may mock our crude little $50k sports sedan. I'm just glad I can appreciate any car that is entertaining and a joy to drive without the need of self-empowerment.

    Also, I am a fan of the Nissan V6 exhaust note.

    True that!!! And let's not talk about the autox or roadcourses...Imagine having AWD, 3200lbs, 275s on all four corners, and over a dozen proven suspension solutions to choose from....

    sad that the thread started as a bashing...I have much respect for the STEvos, amazing vehicles at even double their price.

    The spec B Legacy would be my choice. With all the aftermarket crossover, you could sneak up on just about anything in one of those. The styling is a little more my speed as well.

    Their ride quality is crap. Like someone else mentioned...there's all out performance (EVO / STi / Cobra), then there's the quality mix of luxury & performance (CTS-V / IS 300 / M5). It's all a matter of choice and to hit on one or the other is pure ignorance as it's apples vs. oranges (not a hit on you, just using your quote to shape my comment).

    I hear you, and agree fully with your opinion. The two cars, or types of cars, are so different that a comparo is not reasonable. I was all set to pull the trigger on an STi prior to the V, but the LS6 pulled me with more alure. Really, I didn't get the V because of the luxury aspect...but it's a nice benefit. I bought the V because of it's "rip-yer-nuts-off" attitude and performance, great looks and that it could double as an executive car.

    In 11 months, I've gone from loving to hating to loving to hating the V...the diff/tranny problems have killed my relationship. I have regrets that I didn't go with my original choice from the start but I'm happy I experienced the meanest American sedan to ever hit the pavement.

    Yes, the V and STEvos are completely different animals...each with it's own positives and negatives. It is a great world we live in when reasonably affordable sedans can perform with the likes of dedicated sports cars. With a little more attention to the V's engineering issues, I very much believe it will be a car people talk about years from now ...in the same conversations of Shelby Cobras, GTOs, 'Cudas, and other classics. It's that great...almost.

    I went onto the Subaru website to price out a fully loaded STi after my original post and it stickered for over $35k. Even fully loaded, this STi still doesn't come close to the V in amenities or overall ride quality. Me...I think the extra $10k for a hell of a lot more car was worth it. Despite the issues with your V, for what ever it's worth I think you made a great choice.

    That legacy would be sweet. Slightly cushier ride than the a$$ beating from STEvo's, but almost all the juice.

    They're going out the door for very low $30Ks. Sure, if one can find a new V for mid$40s, and racecar performance is secondary to some luxury, then it's a great deal. A good difference in cash..about $15K with my math, but still VERY different cars.

    As far as my story, over 50 days in service for 11months of ownership...and my 3rd diff ('06) is SCREAMING...the tranny has no more fluid in it (total leak-out). I can't agree with the "good choice", neither does my attorney...
    But I still have love for it...like the beautiful stripper that we know isn't good for us but we still see her as much as possible.

    It all depends on what you want...there's a car for it.

    ace, owning a Ducati I figured the STi would win you over with it's boxer, V-twinesque exhaust pulses.

    wow your V sounds like a nightmare. Its a shame that a limited production sedan that is supposingly put together under the best conditions has this happen. Some say its "the driver" simply because the people who can offord these cars aren't used to "stick" (in some cases I may agree with that) but all that failing on a car is beyond redicoulous. Maybe Cadillac should test them like Chevy tests the Corvette, run it over and over for a few 24 hour non-stop runs, they find a problem creat a solution, it almost sounds like the cars on the road are all CTS-V test cars.

    You can say that more people with problems then w/o post on here, but the truth is there simply isn't that many actually out there as its limited production, I've loved going to dealer and looking at this car and watching and listening to it when they move it around, but it begins to make one wonder what truely is going on with them. Maybe this is what happens when you put the parts of other GM Brands under the body of a Cadillac.
