    That's right! There is no specific car of the week. This thread is dedicated to talking about cars in general.

    So go ahead, let's begin....how bout the new cadillac SRX or VW Phaeton?


    BTW, If you guessed that I was way too busy to research a car for this thread, you were right!

    The Acura TSX is like the sedan of the RSX, not much power but it does look pretty good....

    Well I got to drive one of these just recently. Now all I need to do is find a way to justify one to my wife [​IMG]...one of the most fun cars I've had the pleasure of driving in a long time.

    After looking at the pics above of the new STi I'm left wondering about the purpose of the spoiler on the back of the vehicle. My best guess: it serves as a stand up table or a work bench. Looks to be about 4' high, perfect height for propping your elbow against while drinking a Dew and trying to look cool [​IMG]

    I believe Subaru is attempting to dislodge Pontiac from the coveted "King of the Plastic Wing" title. At least Subaru includes some HP with their wing!

    The STi wing is very similar to the one on the WRC car. Its purpose is to provide downforce (or at least cut lift) on the rear of the car at high speeds.

    How about the new Lexus RX330? I'm waiting for the MY2005 (I think) hybrid version they are promising.

    I think it should be the new WRX Sti. This has potential to be a cobra killer! 300 hp, 300 torque...with what this thing weighs it will fly!

    I agree with the WRX STi....I am currently saving to buy a WRX wagon.
