Decent Performance And Build

Cons

The Looks

My First Car — This was the first car I had, so I don't remember too much about it. It was a 5-speed manual, acceleration was pretty decent I guess... can't really remember.

lookes awesome with the carbon fibre hood, CF taillights, spolier, rims, and dual exhaust....

Cons

Looks like crap after the rear end nudge, and the hood flipping up and smashing my windshield and sunroof

98 Eclipse — performance - alright acceleration.. could be better.. good braking... awesome handling. build quality - alright... appearance - awesome... leather interior fun factor - really loud with the stereo and dual exhaust. its also pretty sweet getting all the looks as you drive by people. cost of ownership - why would i tell you that? lol

An affordable 2-door version of an Evolution.

Cons

It's a used car.

Chicks Dig The Car. — The car is 10 years old now, so its not exactly mint. I am impressed by the engine which can withstand up to 400 hp in stock form. The brakes handle nicely and the suspension
