    Contemplating this or the MS3..can someone chime in with some suggestions/thoughts/common problems?

    the MS3 is definitely more appealing to the eye but ive driven an MS6, and hated the gearbox.

    The girlfriend has a C-SRT4, its a BLAST to drive. Holds its own to my 300C no problem. (just means I have to mod mine) lol.

    The car's been in a few times for warranty work. Nothing to serious. And you do NOT want to drive on the stock tires in the winter. She learned the hard way, and because of the way the rims are designed they lose air very easily in the cold, she drove n a flat, and the rubber actually came right off the rim.

    Drive all of them.

    I would pick the Mazdaspeed 3 though out of those choices.

    I can understand wanting more room in the cobalt, but if your other selection is a MS3 - then a cobalt SS is the obvious choice.

    SRT4 Caliber would not even be on the list of "hot hatches" I would contemplate buying.

    haha yeah, surprised the hell out of me, the C can pull a car length on it from the start, the SRT4 has a bit of trouble off the line, but once its going its fair game. Its a quick car. I believe the 1/4 for a C is 14.1 and the 1/4 for the SRT4 is 14.3 .. so not much of a difference.

    If I had the SRT8 300 though, hah.. try to keep up to me with the caliber.

    ^^True. As for the Caliber, it's one of the worst cars on the road.

    I wouldnt' go that far.

    I've driven ALOT worse that are worth ALOT more money than the caliber.

    The normal caliber is um, well.. not all that good. The SRT was well thought out in my opinion. I cant wait till she takes it out to auto-x next year.

    fucking impossible to find with the limited-slip. every one in phoenix has a sunroof, NONE have the LSD. i think there's one in all of AZ in the color i want with the LSD and i'm not going to fuck with these faggot chevy dealers any more

    will rock the fuckus for another year, then something new before the warranty runs up. we'll see what the new track-pack mustangs end up going for :noes:
