fucking uncool. it sucks so bad that when i run into them, they are either: driven by old ladies, rap wannabes, and fucking slow drivers.

Actually, that version of the car is a badass. The 2.2 turbo is a pretty stout engine. I had a Spirit ES turbo with the 2.5 (I think... it's been a long time ago) and that car would hit 100+ in no time. Very stable at speed for a grocery getter.

Incredibl....Y un-cool.

Posted by: PAULIE_D Oct 15 2004, 11:48 AM

Cool ... because I like sleepers.

Good luck trying to find one on the used car market though.

Posted by: Forrest Oct 15 2004, 01:21 PM

Definetly cool. One hell of a sleeper too.

just so you know, chances are you are running into Dodge Spirits (non R/T's) because R/T's are pretty rare (i've never seen one)

You're right. The Sprirt ES Turbo I has was very quick. These are just downright fast. I've seen a couple in years past but none recently.

Not in handlight but in straight line. And I was talking about US specs M3. I dont see anything funny...

Some stats for E36 M3:

Obtained from C&D September, 1999
0-60: 6
1/4 Mile: 14.6
Transmission: Manual

Obtained from C&D August, 1997
0-60: 5.5
1/4 Mile: 14
Transmission: Manual

So rare...

If anyone finds one in Toronto, my friend promises that he'll buy it.

Posted by: Avalon Oct 23 2004, 05:32 PM

The reason the E36 M3 did 6 seconds to 60mph in 1999 and 5.5 secs in 1997, is that '97 is when they altered the torque curve for that brilliant staight six, giving it more punch down low. I was under the impression that they left it that way after, '97, but if those figures are genuine C&D numbers, then I guess not. DS_Skeptical2.gif

This car is definately uncool. I think it looks like something you'd find on GTA games.

Posted by: DZ302 Dec 5 2005, 11:59 PM

i can't believe i didn't see this until just now. these cars are fucking nasty, in the good way. the ultimate sleeper = a frozen vote from me. yes they are ugly. yes they are cheap looking. yes they are front wheel drive. yes they can probably smoke you. that's the point.

Posted by: moethepaki Dec 6 2005, 08:29 AM

I'd want one of those...would make for some very embarrassing races for my friends.

Posted by: Halflifehavock13 Dec 8 2005, 01:13 PM

I'd say this is an MJ uncool but with the 5 speed manual and 0-60 in under 6 sec, it gets a bump up to just plain uncool.

I remember having a small book about cars and this was in it, was one of my favourites in the whole damn book!
