One of the local rallyists brought up his new toy to the ice-race today: A Lancer EVO VII RS. Geniune LHD, full HP. He is planning to run it in pro-rally this upcoming year. :grin::D

Here are my impressions- Neat very fast vehicle :smile: but..:

--The interior makes a GC8 Impreza look like a Benz or a Lexus. It's that bad. Mind you, this was a RS spec, which is equivalent to a STi-RA, but if the EVO GSR is anything like this-- YUCK! :sad:


--Overall feeling for me was like: "Wow fast car- but I wouldn't want to drive it daily."

On first impression, I'm sticking with Subaru.

I need a daily driver/racecar. If you are looking for just a second "track/fun" vehicle, the EVO is probably a better choice. However, I can't afford two cars at this point in my life.. :smile:

Believe me- the interior on the EVO SUCKS! Maybe when the GC8 Impreza was still around there was debate on which is better- but the new-age interior is alot nicer.

That's beside the point- I don't trust Mitsu, like I have grown to trust Subaru. That's the biggest reason.
