    Awsome! — One of the best yet build Lancer of its class! Speed is in their if you want.. Looks damn nicer than the older ones. sexyer to. For the price its a bit to much considering the low quality dash board but overall its a performance call aint it... If you would like to have a car that drives like hell but dont want to spend to much.. this is the car for you!

    Pros: Handling and precision!

    Cons: Could have a better dash design!

    Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution — Maker of Fast Moving in all Directions SAWD, yup Super all wheel drive. 3 different active control systems not to mention 3 different sensitivities. Can you take turns over 100kmph? haha, can you slide around at 100kmph in the gravel? Is it way better looking then the subaru competition? Yep, and for the record, the engine sound is not weak, it's very modest and I like how it's soft because I do a lot of relax driving and loud engines are sweet if u can turn them down sometimes. Overall: not your first manual car, clutches will wreck. Also the car's acd asc and ayc systems allow you to way beyond your capabilities. You might feel in less control as a professional driver but that's when you can push your boundaries as well, the car will correct your mistakes. As a rookie driver, I wouldn't recommend this car but for seasoned racers or conditioned reckless drivers, this car makes for a safe thrill every time....oh yah, don't forget that you need to change your rubbers for the season.

    Pros: Pros- beats anything off the line comes with nice breaks you can lose cops pretty easy i'd imagine it's comfy and roomy ...something about a built in sub? you can mod the computer for 35 more horse it doesn't chirp the tires ever usually

    Cons: It's expensive it's very plain jane on the inside It has a very wimpy trany, trust me tops out at 263kmph heavy clutch umm.....it doesn't have sun roof on the gsr lastly the spoiler in the rear view sucks because usually everyone will end up behind you so if you wanted to see all those mustangs, chargers and other silly american cars you zip by, it will be a little tougher to see them.

    The Best Lancer — The acceleration in my lancer evolution is great. It has been modified a bit so it can acclerate from 0-100 in 7 seconds. The braking system is perfet and the handling is magnificent. My car hasn't needed any repairs, but it was modified. My lancer Ex Looks awesome. The exterior is buetiful and the interior is great. Also the sound system is great.

    Pros: It ia a awesome machine

    Cons: There ain't any negatives

    Best Jap Import Coupe Yet — this car is awesome--lightning fast and tight around corners. The computer is surprisingly fast considering how much data it processes while travelling around the corner. It's rather expensive, and uses up a little much petrol, but as long as you don't fang it every day it shouldn't be too bad.

    Pros: great performance car

    Cons: price a little high, fuel consumption

    Evo X Gsr — Performance is best you can get for the money. Best handling and most solid Evo yet. Amazing tunability. If you look at this beast wrong she will gain 15whp. I Plan to keep her as civil as possible for now but in a few years she will turn into a track monster.

    Pros: Looks, Driving Experiance

    Cons: Not enough tracks close by

    Evo X Treme — This new evolution is agressive and gorgeous. Im not gonna brag but seriously just driving down any road most people move out of your way thinking its an exotic. With a well designed exterior and a lavish interior there is no subtitute for this magnificant machine. peronaly the only thing id change about this ride is the recardo seats back to the concept version. you cant go wronge with carbonfiber backs and intigrated lcd screens a suade dash board and a wide body kit

    Pros: agressive design, faster then your dads prsche 911 twin turbo

    Cons: should have stayed with the concept version

    Evo X Mr Ftw — Well I just got an Evo X MR and when I test drove it it was amazingly quick. A few things I like about the car is that the turbo starts to spool at only 3000 RPM so it launches pretty quick. Its appearance it's nice and looks really good. The interior is much better then the Evo IX's because it has more creature comforts like the seats are now very comfortable and they gave it a gentler suspension. The most useful feature of the Evo X MR that I can see so far is the gear box. Now I know must people think automatics suck ass and to be honest 9 times out of 10 I would be forced to agree, but this is that 1 time out of 10 that I am going to go out on a limb and say this gear box is better then the manual.

    Pros: Fast, amazing twin clutch g ear box, easy to tune, and fun out of the box

    Cons: Transmission as of right now is limited to 350 ft/lbs of torque, price was 41.7k, gas tanks is small, and the milage could be better.

    Ummm It Gets Me From Point A To Point B — This car defines what you are able to do in a car. The Lancer evolution X is the 10th version of this model. When it was released it showed that mitsubishi had taken this evo to a more refined version wanting to get a bigger segment of the market and not just for harcore car addicts. I was a little skeptical of how redefined it would be and whether or not it would be worthy of the evolution badge. I spent about 7 months of research on this car usually during boring classes at u of c. Needless to say I wasn't expecting this much love for the car at that time as I have for it now. In those 7 months of research I looked at many cars from the infiniti g37 to the bmw 335i. I test drove most of the cars I looked at and was pleasently surprised at how equally I liked them, yet how plain the drive was; all except one the lancer evolution x. I was not able to test drive it because it simply had not be built and released in North America. All I could do was watch countless videos of the car and think how it would drive. 7 months later and I was able to test drive the car finally. I instantly knew this was the car I wanted. Even though it doesn't have the BMW badge or the navigation system of the infiniti g37 it didn't matter. This brings us to today, the car loves the ground especially because of the super all wheel control which combines the the active skid control and active yaw control to create a car that would make any idiot driving look like a race car driver. Just point where you want this car to go and it will go. It's 300 HP turbocharged 2.0 liter engine also gives me the ability to do a lane change whenever I want ;) There are however somethings I would not miss. One of them being the paint that Mitsubishi uses. The car comes stock with sticky tires that hug it to the road which makes rock chips a normal thing that often hits the rocker panel. The paint chips really easily and as a result I have had to 3m the rocker panel to keep it from looking like it a machine gun tore threw it. The interior is ok but definitively not bmw. Overall though the cars performance definitely beats out its con's. This car is definitely something that everyone should test drive or ride in to understand what I have said.

    Pros: You have to drive one or ride in one to understand the Pros of this car.

    Cons: The interior isn't the nicest and the paint sucks for rock chips, pricing is not the best either when compared to the US for the same model.
