Hey, how ya do that little square? lol. I'll move this for you!

As for the Evolution, I think they're quite reliable, even though Mitsubishi generally aren't as reliable as other Japanese motors (apart from maybe...Subaru lol)

I have heard from 3 different Evo owners that the clutch is crap. It goes out after about 4,000 miles (those were 2 evo 8's and one evo 9).

From what I've heard about Evo's they are amazing cars once you get the hang of them. I guess it's a car you need a lot of experience to drive. I've heard about the clutch being easy to pop like elchango says but with all the aftermarket parts avalible for the car I'm sure you could find one more durable than stock.

I looked at an Evo before finally getting my Audi A6, they're diffrent animals. Completely diffrent really. I had no business looking at Evos. But that's all besides the point.

Happy hunting.
