Yes, the Evo VIII is [email protected]$$. I'd love to park one of those in my garage (even though it is still an Lancer). The dealer here had two sitting in the showroom, and all I can say is mmmmmmmmmmmmm. If you ever get a chance, just go check out the BRAKES on those things.
But I too have a similar story like that, but mine involves a WRX. He didn't smoke me, but he pulled me a couple of car lenghts. Moments like that make me long for a chip!
Oh, and the Recaro seats in the Evo's are pure butter!!!!

Like I said, they had BOTH of these setting IN the showroom. So they weren't going to break them out unless you were going to buy it.

if i had the money i would take the evo over any car, except the mustang saleen s281 extreme! the evo is not a car...it's a MONSTER! 271 horsepower, 4 wheel drive, and the suspension used simply makes it better than most cars around.
my dub is cool but if i had a choice i'd take the evo simply b/c the evo is my fav car. don't get me wrong i love my dub, but the evo is an evo!
It's all about personal opinions. In my opinion I dont need a superfast car since there is no way in hell i can drive that fast on the streets in chicago and if i would i would kill my self. The reason I got a dub is because I just love the look of it and the endless modifications someone can do to make it look nice and not riced out. I got a 2.0 and its slow compared to vr6 and 1.8t but atleast it looks good. To tell you the truth I'd rather have a slow good looking car then a fast honda civic. But again thats just personal opinions. EVO's are monsters as you guys say but im just not diggin the look of it.
I had two brand new GTi's split me at a 3 lane light, both fresh off the lot...both revved up thinking i was just some punk...they got their asses handed to them in a handbasket...after they caught up with me at the next light...
