Hey all, wanna hear something that really sucks for Mitsu...? Check this out. I also sell Mitsu and I finally went down there to look in and sit in one and the drivers seat SUCKS big! 8) In fact, my manager who is about 5' 6" could BARELY see over the dash and hood. There's no vertical adjustment on their seat and it sits VERY low to the floor. Then the adjustment for reclining the back of the seat is some stupid little round knob about the size of a small baseball that you have to turn with your hand. Not only can you not reach it without practally getting out of the car but it is also like trying to get the cap off of a bottle of Viagra. It's idiot proof! LOL

Anyway, I just thougth that after going down to see it and knowing that the STi is only gonna be a few $$$ more that Mitsu has really just put out an expensive Lancer. The STi will absolutely blow it away!

Wow....that sounds like the typical Recaro mechanism. That really sucks....haha.

So you're saying the seats in the EVO actually are about as cheap and ridiculous as they actually look! :lol:

Is it just me, or did anyone else think the fabric on those seats looked like one of those woven lawn chairs?

Wow thats amazing Murley! My experience with Recaros is fantastic. I put a pair of SRD's in my Intergra Type R and a pair of Pole Positions in my track race RX-7. Absolutely fantasic seats! The ones in the Evo 8 look quite similar to SRD's. That was one of the only things i saw that the Evo 8 had that made me sorta jealous. I will agree that the fabric color they put on them is quite horrible though. Well lets all hope that the Sti's seats are as good as they look :wink:

X-Japan is the greatest band ever!

Sorry to be a buzz kill, but I think it is great that there is finnally a performance car that tall people can feel comfortable in. If I won the lottery, I wouldn't be able to get any Porsche, Lambo, Ferrari, or even a Viper, since they are all designed for short people. It sucks, doesn't it?

How's that a buzz kill? The Impreza is just as big, if not a bigger car than the Lancer. Wouldn't that imply there is no advantage to either? :-?

Re: Production numbers

Not that I fell the need to defend myself, but I never said "crappy seats"...

I did however say that they SUCK. :p

Ooooooh....someone's getting techical now!

And while some giants are happy about it, demographics say that very few people are 6' and taller....which means Mitsu has just made very few people in the US happy.

Not a good marketing tool....

Cool Goodies that come with the STi

I just went down to my local Mitsu dealer to check out the Evo. Although I don't like the aesthetics of the seats they are quite comfortable. I'm a short guy about 5'6" around 200 lbs and I thought they were a real good fit. Although it might be too late, I hope Subaru does include seats better than the ones I saw at the Peterson showing.

Well, I'm 6'4" and about 240. This is a good thing. I can hardly get into most sports cars unless its a vette or M3 b/c my legs are so long or my head hit the roof.

BTW, I know this is something that most people hold true to their hearts. The idea of bashing this car over the other and it certainly hasn't started with the Evo vs. the STi, but let's try and make this a place where we are all car enthusiasts. The STi is great, the Evo is great.

Something I find different and refreshing (for the most part) on this forum is that we don't go around talking about how bad the Evo is and how great our STi is. Evolutionm.net is like that this. A lot of them are very immature always ranting about how much the STi sucks, etc. I suppose I am buzz killing the idea of always trashing the competition, when in reality both of these cars are truly awesome! And the Recaros are actually of better build quality than the STi seats.

i like the Recaros in the EVO when I sat in it... not the nicest looking, but they feel good, like my RSX's seats. I hope the STi's seats feel as good. I think they do look better. I agree that we should be car ENTHUSIASTS and not bashers.

I have to admit that the new Evo seats are pretty ugly.... but they grip... Im about 5'9 and I have had no problems sitting in the car or seeing over the hood. Niether have any of my friends... Im looking forward to the WRX STI and the Evo is the only other car on the market in my price range that competes with the STI but you guys shouldnt rag on the Evo so much, its not that bad. Especially the interior, not too nice but very sporty... grabs you nice and tight just like any other race seat...

There are a few exceptions here as far as ranting on the other car. But, I would say considering the average age of evolutionm.net member it isn't too hard to see why there is more bashing on over there. Just look at the thread "Factors influencing the Evo over the STi." So many people have never even seen the car and yet everyone is true to their car..!?!? :-? I notice a lot of Lancer owners doing this too.

PS. A lot of WRX owners that troll the evolutionm.net are in this same category. Very immature and always car bashing. I have nothing against any of the sites or the majority of the users, but that's why I like this site tons better than nasioc or i-club. Just my two cents.
