Stock Is Boring. Dont Be Stock. — Goes like hell. Brakes are top notch. Mitsu build quality really sucks and so does their warranty. Evo 8's I think have the sexiest front end. I don't like the 9 front ends. 4 door turbo awd beast is all I have to say!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Handles awesome!

Cons: Build quality sucks!

Must Try Before You Die. — I never liked the looks of this car. Between the goofy rear wing to the 'not quite there yet' styling, it was a love/hate relationship in the aesthetic department. But I bought 2 of them because from an all-out performance for the money rating, this car is off the charts. If Facebook would let me add a couple stars to the performance category, this car would have it. It was that good.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Unmatched performance for the money.

Cons: You still have to look at it.

Fun Family/bachelor Car — has turbo lag, braking is top notch, handles better than a dream, rattles like most race built cars, interior and exterior are worth more than you pay for, gas mileage sucks if you live in California. maintenance isn't so bad if you're the mechanic. This car is the definition of fun!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fun

Cons: price

The Awesome All Wheel Drive Car — it has a very good 0-100 time of just 4.2 secs. braking is excellent .handling is also perfect. u can go round the corner at high speeds, exterior is cool too. milagae is awesome. and finally this car is really fun to drive, but not a daily use car.

Mitsubishi Evo Viii Rs — Even though it is not the MR, probably about as fast because of all the weight loss...no radio, manual windows and doors, aluminum hood and roof. Car was very quick, built in 2 step launch limiter. If you don't mind having the bear minimum for convenience it is a blast to drive.

Pros: Perfomance and looks

Cons: Bear Necessities

4g63 Is King — There is not a bad thing you can truly say about an Evo. Not only is this 4G63 motor a rock solid platform, it is also reliable as hell, even with modifications. I say this from being an owner of one, and because I work at AMS Performance out in West Chicago...Home of the WORLD'S quickest EVO: 8.42 @ 168mph. Not only that, we build some of the sickest Evo's I've ever seen...

Pros: Everything

Cons: None at all...

A Head Turner! Just Be Prepared To Drop A Little Dough And Enjoy It! — The color is awesome and I choose it because it was limited for how many cars they decided to put it on. Looks sharp even after being 3+ years old. I just love the aggressive look of the car. It's simple looking but the front of the car demands respect if you're into the import market. Performance out of the factory is solid however with a little bit more cash under the hood with the right tune...you create an animal that could keep up with vettes, vipers, and ferrari's. It's a little pricey to maintain however if you learn to do some things yourself it can save you a ton of cash plus you learn that way. And I've just never driven any other car that just constantly puts a smile on my face. I'm also an attetion whore so it's a perfect match. Anyone who is into cars can appreciate the enthusiasm!

Pros: Exotic car performance for 1/3 of the price

Cons: better stereo would be nice as well as a better clutch from the factory...I did change that however
