    Yeah the sti has a much nicer interior imo with the red stitching and everything how ever it's not as roomy inside. I was also told that you only get a 6 month warranty when you buy the sti compared to the evo which is much better."salesman at mitsubishi dealership"

    Slap the salesman that told you that..lol You get the full 3yr/36k bumper to bumper when you buy an STI.. I have owned a half a dozen of these cars. Also owned an EVO.

    Both awesome cars. Depending what you are looking to get out of the car, and what you plan to do to/with it, would dictate which I would recommend.

    Sti by far is better for daily driving if you don't plan to mod it much.

    if u go sti, stayay away from 08 unless they had another engine put in under warranty. the 08s had ringland issues since it was the first of the hatches. also the evo's always had better handling stock(subys understeer) but just get some thicker sway bars and problem fixed

    Haha thanks for the info. I was actually quite shocked when he said that. Sadly enough I have to pick between the two the evo just due to the fact that it's the only one I fit in. Nonetheless I really like the evo even though the interior is a bit bland but I won't mind making some changes to improve it

    Are you planning on getting an X, or 8/9?

    well for simpler reasons the market where im at doesnt favor evo's, huge resale cost for extremely high miles, also every one i knew that owned one had problems occur when launching even at low rpm's. lastly i think its completely over rated but thats just my personal opinion. im more of toyota and bmw guy these days.

    You mentioned a good point that it's crucial to purchase a vehicle favored in your area (market) I wouldn't buy the evo if I knew the customer service was crap in my area. Do you know what exactly was the problem when launching and if it was covered by the warranty? Thx

    Haha is that due to the slower 0-60? Because from what I understand it's faster on a track.

  18. i have read and heard of numerous gearbox problems but cant answer the warranty question. browse the evo forums for a bit.

    THe gear box is very, very solid. The issue was the early 8 transfer cases. They switched to an LSD in 05. You can get a shep built tcase for under $1k.

    The evo is a very capable car.

    Very true if we're both speaking about the brz

  26. the price is the biggest deal breaker though maybe 22 to 24 is reasonable. for these

    after taxes and etc plus the 0-60 time is not impressive compared to a mustang and a few other cars in the same price range.the price isn't awful though I'd probably get a camaro or the Hyundai genesis for around the same price instead.

    It isn't built for straight line racing. Put them both on a track(road course) and they are very close. Except the BRZ would be 10x more fun to drive than a base mustang/camaro. Both of those feel like pigs in comparison.

    They car wasn't mean't to be fast. It was meant to bring back the light weight, well handling, fun to drive sport compact cars of back in the day.

    It also is going to hold value 10x better.

    EBF- In that price range and your climate, just grab an 11' WRX. They are super fun to drive, and do well in the snow. Do a few bolt-ons and call it a day.
