    Very cool, but I don't know if people will really spend that much for a Mitsubishi these days.* I do like the idea of a plush Evo, though. Just maybe in the low $40k range though, not the low $50k range. :o

    *Yes, I know there was the $64k 3000GT VR-4 Spyder. Times have changed.

    for some reason I can't imagine too many bmw/mercedes people cross shopping for a 50k evo

    i could be wrong though.

    Nobody is going to order one with every last accessory. Most will be in the low-40s.

    Now if the regular $35k-ish Evo got some touches like the BBS wheels, small lip spoiler and more subdued colors, I think it could be a hit. Maybe someone would cross-shop that with an S4 or 335i. :hs:

    I think I remember you posting about this car before. Something about those seats. Cool feature, but like you said, getting every option? Not so much. :hs:

    Heated leather seats, rain sensing wipers, navigation, sunroof.

    The car comes loaded with pretty much everything you'd expect for a car in its price range but also comes with a wallop of performance without the unwanted attention the larger wing tends to attract.

    I think it's a great car for the money but unfortunately, they won't sell because Americans are stupid, vapid badge whores.

    Maybe

    I respect the evo for everything it is, but it still sort of looks like a 16 year old's wet dream.

    Not saying it's not a good looking car, but its styling is just too...something, I dunno the word I'm looking for.

    should've bumped the hp a bit more
     
  17. A bunch of nice stuff stuffed in a shitty interior doesnt make it a good interior though :hs:

    It sounds like such a nice car. I'll admit, those features don't really appeal to me, but that's probably because I've never had them. :o

    A long time ago, someone had posted a dark metallic green Evo X with some gold wheels and a custom lip spoiler. I loved the subdued look. :hs: Never thought Mitsu would actually try and do the same thing.

    The interior in the MR is far from shitty.

    Hmmm. Touches like some silver grille mesh, BBS wheels with more spokes, less black trim might help. :dunno:
     
  22. Its good for the class of car the Lancer is in but those features on this car kind of take away what it was originally created for it seems :o
