I test drove an EVO after much hassling with the dealer and I test drove an STi (no dealer would let me no matter how much hassling so I found someone willing to let me take it for a spin). Simply put: the STi was a better car. I had read all of the magazines before hand and expected the EVO to have falcon like handling. I didn't really notice that big a difference. Besides the fact that the steering wheel seemed to turn faster it didn't seem like the car was any more stable in hairpin turns. What I did notice was turbo laaaagggg. I wasn't about to trade up my '03 WRX for a car that had the same problems.LaZy4zNbOi said:Mitsu dumped a fat wad of cash on the magazine's desk. end of story.

Why don't all those car magazine guys just buy a Ducati, an R1, or a CBR if they value performance so highly? They're lighter, faster, cheaper, more manuverable, and have engines that rev in the tens of thousands! The rest of us drive not on the racetrack, but mainly on the street. Read the magazines, but buy the car you like. Evos and STi are both great cars. I'm just glad there's not many of them on the road.
