I own a CD7 and I love it like nothing else however sadly I have a desire
for performace. I can put in 10 grand into my car and will maybe get what I
want, but lets say I do that....its not going to be as reliable and wont
last as long, there will be complications and such..plus its already 11
years old. even though Im planning on never selling it, Im considering
buying a new car with the performace I want stock.....I think its the
smarter choice and everyone agrees. I just feel like im cheating on my
Honda Accord....kinda like cheating on my girlfriend because I was bored
with her or somthing,lol. I need you alls opinions on this especially those
who has been in my shoes before. Also the car that has really caught my eye
is the Evo IX, it has everything Im looking for.
Its a car dude, chill.
RS is 28,000
IX is 32,000
MR is 36,000
all are est
If I start saving up now...then after college I should be around there.
You should be around where? Who's paying for college? Will you be living
with your parents? What kind of job will you have? Loans are expensive, I
*EDIT* Don't expect to pay sticker prices for those cars either.
unless youre buying a car from me... hook a brotha up!!!
lol, but yeah, msrp is usually about 6% over invoice, chances are those lancers are running around 28 to 33 grand invoice
...it's a car. 11 years old is 11 years old. Sell it and buy a new, more reliable vehicle.
You could buy a used evo for much less than that...like 20k if you get an 03 one. (I don't know if the 03 is an evo7 or evo8)
it wouldnt be the 8 i dont think!
id say go for it if you feel its right for you and that you can afford to keep it!
Do you realize how sky high maintenance costs for an evo are. It takes alot of expensive parts to make a lancer that quick. Why dont you think about a car with the same kind of performance that sint so high strung so modifying would be just as easy and not so hard on the car or near as expensive.
In life, we spend money on things that make us happy, otherwise we'd all be
communists and make generally rhe same amount of $.
If it is an evo that makes him happy, so be it. What is the difference between an evo with high maintenance performance parts and a cheap car with modded parts that will probably cause maintenance issues?
They never sold the Evo VII in the States, only the VIII and now the IX.
So it is most likely a VIII if its 03, but he doesnt get the same
differentials if he gets the 03. SAYC, Super Active Yaw Control (is that
it? my memory is failing me) isn't standard on earlier models, only the
later VIII MR's and the new IX(not sure if its only for the MR).
If you're still in college, then stick with the Accord till you do have the money, there is no point in worrying or thinking about something that you cannot afford yet.
