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

Pefromance Car — A must have. The evo VIII has to be the most solid perfomance car going. Handles like a dream, cruises superbly and has never let me down. The power is awsome when that turbo kicks in hold on. Absolute dream to drive and to look at why wouldn't you have one.

Pros: Power, Comfort, everthing

Cons: none

My Evo 8 — There is not really anything to say about the performance of this car. If you have been in it you know for yourself. Its a neck-breaking animal. Overall a bad ass mother. Its always fun to drive, just costs a lot to do it. So its a never ending job of making the money to put back into it.

Pros: Power, handling, looks, sound, everything

Cons: COSTS $$$$$

05 Evo 8 Rs — This really was a fun car, and although it got the same mileage as my Mercury does now, it was blisteringly fast and always kept me awake. It is a car that requires attention to drive at all times, but it responded telepathically and was super communicative. The seats were buckety and ergonomics could not be faulted. One problem with the car at all drive-wise was its tendency to engage in understeer most of the time, which made for a safe and fast but ultimately boring drive through the canyons. The other problem with the car is how much it cost to run, but that is expected with an Evo

Pros: Speed, response, four seats

Cons: Costs, comfort, economy

Evo 8 Mr - Fq — Cost of Ownership is high, but that's to be expected with the performance available. ~400 hp and 400 lb/ft means 0-60 in 3.7sec. vMax of 170mph and then I ran out of runway. over 1 lateral g and similar with acceleration and deceleration g. You need to take it on the track since you can't get anywhere near the limits on the road

Pros: Performance, handling, styling ? ;)

Cons: Attractiveness to theives :(

2005 Mitsubishi Evolution Viii — Great overall car. Fast, uber sporty and attracts attention. The main thing with this car is the clutch and paint. Factory clutches were paper thin and is recommended to upgrade to at least a stage 3 clutch. Watch for paint peeling off the carbon fiber wing. When taken in for normal service, technicians look for any signs of abuse to void your warranty. Even garage kept, Sunday cruisers like mine were blacklisted for warranty repairs.

Pros: 300horse power, great breaks, loves corners

Cons: Bad clutch, paint peels off wing, service people try to void warranties
