    S15 or GTO

    A bit biased in here i know, but this really annoyed me.


    My Girlf has a friend who owns a Mitsibishi GTO (around m-reg i think) we seen him while out a drive in the S15 on Sunday, she spoke to him later that day and when she asked him what he though, he asked "why did he buy that!" , Buy what, a car that is waaaaay more stylish than his, alot more fun, doesnt handle like a whale...........


    What you guys think of this?? Am i right is saying the S15 is a way better car than his GTO??


    Sorry for the rant, just really annoyed me. Sample of his car below: -

    I've always had a thing about the GTO. It looks quite muscular and powerful. Almost bought one before deciding on an S14.
    Too much expensive electronics to go wrong. Very heavy too. The S15 would whip its butt in standard form. Not necessarily in handling though as the GTO has traction control.

    Styling-wise, the S15 does it for me everyday now.

    Anyone who dismisses an S15 outright knows nothing about it...

    Thats what i thought.

    Never been a fan of them since playing the 1st Gran Turismo on the playstation, handling was poor at best, also seen it on a Clarkson video i have and he didnt rate it either

    GTOs would be so much better if they lightened the chasis by a few ton! and ditched the 4 wheel steering...

    The S15 is a small agile and fast car with great balance.
    the GTO is a overweight auto-bahn engine

    Ok, seriously. The GTO is a nice car. But nowhere near as nice as the S15.
    If I wanted 4WD and 4WS. I would go Skyline GTR. The R32 is priced about the same as the GTO but performance-wise it whoops the GTO's ass

    I think the S15 beats the GTO in every-aspect.
    looks, performance, reliability.

    My mate has a GTO its a good looking car with 18" BBS wheels and a body kit of some sort, but the inside is so dated do not like it at all plus its a ball ache to change the plugs
