I've noticed in reviews that the new 9-3 vector/aero seems to be slower 0-60 and so forth than the prevous 9-3 se. What's going on? Road and Track pulled 0-60 in 6.6 and 6.8 in the 9-3se and 7.7 in the Vector. I thought the times would be similar because of the vector's increase in hp and tq. After I read the review, I was dissapointed. Huh? :confused:

I think the limited boost in 1st and 2nd PLUS the gear ratios (having to switch to 3rd with 6spds) in order to reach 100km/h

0-60 ... blah blah blah ... LOVE this car from 40-80 or 50-70 or 30-65 or ... you get the point. Are you really upset with a car this nice and that accelerates so well in gear just because it isn't a dragster???

ya its really the in gear acceleration thats awesome... i love goin from 30mph to like 90 real quick and burning ppl... the 0-60 isnt great, the ppc does help alot tho, plus even tho the 0-60 isnt great our 1/4 mile times are still close to other cars with better 0-60 times because once the turbo spools up u get goin

guys, i'm just wondering, sheesh :roll: . 0-60 doesn't mean a lot and, to me, on ramp acceleration is a lot more fun anyways :) .

0-60 is at 6.8 and ppc will get you down closer to 6.1-6.2. I also have a G35 with a 5.6 0-60, but the wifes 04 9-3 vert will run right with me on the interstate. 0-30 this car is very slow.
