Modded E36 M3 or an STi?

Specifically a '95 M3 with 25K in performance mods, or a WRX/STi...

more info = good
what mods? speed stuff? good high speed tires? "rims"? suspension?
what?

same price i'm assuming... (but you know what happens when you assume) but i'd prolly go with the Sub just because it would be new and you wouldn't have to worry about the PO not doing something correctly and fuggin it up down the road
not to mention the warranty and such

Basically, if you had an E36 M3, how much $ would it take for the M3 to beat an STI? No mods just for show, everything for performance. Only what it would take to get that M3 to stack up to the STI.

Really just 0-100 or 1/4 mi. I just need to know because I love the german engineering and I've heard a hell of a lot of difference of opinion on what an STi can beat. Thanks for bearing with me on this one

Man, if you had 25 grand in a car that is already a decent performer, there wouldn't be a comparison. Put that many mods on both however, and the STi would smoke the M3.
