Evo 8 Fq330 — Acceleration is spot on, feels like its glued to the road...interior is sweet, being a limited edition its got half leather and half alcantara,exterior is a love hate thing on the evo 8 personally i like.If driven hard then your gonna feel it in the pocket and its needs servicing every 4.5k miles. Is this car FUN to drive ............ Oh yes !!

Fantastic Lambo Killer — superb car to drive and handles really well in any weather condition and its very easy to modify to make it more powerful, looks good with basic setup but lowered and beefier brakes makes it stop the earth would like have 500 hp at the wheels coming very soon hopefuly

My Favorite, My Baby...we'll Be Together Forever — The best car i have ever driven, when the turbo spools you will be glued to the Recaros in the front, and the back seats are comfy too...and mine came with a huge system in the trunk so i cant complain....Ive owned a 3000GT, Lexus IS300, and this is by far the best of them all...gettin ready to do some heavy mods

Open The Throttle And Feel The Rush, It'll Leave You With A Smile Bigger Then The Joker. (batman Mov — not much lag with the turbo, spools up from no rev's... high reving motor.. good traction with 4wd gearbox. able to drift car hence good LSD brakes work well, thou need to be serviced regularly, as might start shacking or vibrating..

She's All I Need — everything about this car is great. By far it is the best, most reliable vehicle I have ever had. Not only does it have great room in the front and the back but it definately rides comfortably too. Much better than Subaru's STI. I do mostly highway driving so it gets around 23-26 MPG average. I have not had to have any repairs done on this vehicle. It has all been regular maintenance. By far the funnest thing I have ever been behind the wheel of.

Pros

Power, handling, fun factor

Cons

Poor gas mileage, no cruise control, more like a track car

135

The Fun Factor Makes It Easy To Overlook The Shortcomings. — Love the drive train durability and power, plus TONS of aftermarket support. Don't like the chintzy interior materials that look cheap. Braking comes alive with the right pads. Gas mileage is not good, but is abysmal (5-7mpg) at the track. Tranny is a weak spot - got a 1st-to-2nd grind.

Best Car Ever — Amazing handling. A blast to drive in the snow with snow tires. Ample room inside. The car is quite expesinve to maintain and I do not rocommend this as a daily driver for those who do not have deep pockets. Gas milage is crap but that mostly because it inspires a heavy foot.
