: I think the series 5(generation 2 here in states?) will not be able to match a M3. I had a friend with a japo spec series 5 rx-7 and that didn't come close when he dragged another guy's 95 euro m3 from 0-100km so...i don't know...maybe my friend sux at shifting. I must say that I love rx-7's though..especially the series 6..lovely curves!!!
Hello, I'm new to this forum, but really had to jump in.
I have been lucky enough to have owned and driven a 87 RX-7 TII, a 93 RX-7, and a 95 M3 (current ride). In order of acceleration/speed in stock form, my impressions are: 93RX-7, 95M3, 87RX-7. The new FD-3S (3rd gen) RX-7 is a rocket, once you hit 4500rpm, you blow people away. Both RX-7's can EASILY be modified to produce unseemly amounts of power for low $$$.
I love the solid M3 ride though. And both RX-7's are tempermental when it comes to maintenance and repair issues. The backseat of the M3 is also a luxury :)
