    It seems to me it was designed for people who can't afford that car, because people who CAN afford it wouldn't wanna drive a yellow car with ricer taillights.

    Possible, but I guarantee you the guy with $30k to spend doesn't know that the JDM taillights don't look like that, unless the Evo is exactly the car he wants.

    :wrd: i think thats how it is with the STi, the Evo, the R32... they are trying to appeal to the younger crowd... and the younger crowd DOESN'T HAVE $30K to spend on a car. If it was $25, thats one thing. If I had $30K to spend on a NEW car... I'd certainly get an Audi, Bimmer, or a low end Benz... Hell I'd consider a Lexus (even though I don't like them, they are nice cars) over an Evo or STi for the price. In reality, those that are truly performance minded like myself would do what I'm doing. Buy a base model for $18G's and put the other $12G's into it. 2002 GTi 1.8t = $19,560 brand new. + $5000 = 12 second car.

    I don't like the look of the Evo at all but I love the fact that the thing is fast as hell!
