Probably paddle shifted manual. it's the direction rallye cars are going.

remember, manuals were in sports cars becasu they were best for road race and rallye. tech has moved on and now paddle shifted trans are best, much like disc brakes replaced drums.

I remember seeing it before, and she's beautiful! I personally like the inerior, doesn't look too comfortable though...

BTW Why does it say "Sabelt" on the safety harnesses?

I'll take the recenet evos over this one, the only appealing thing to me is the interior, and even that is pretty plain...reminds me of a srt-4 body for some reason, but I like the srt-4 body better

I think because the SRT 4 seems like its pointed down at the front, with a really high back end, and a high spoiler, just like this one.

i do believe that this and the caliber (technically not the neon's replacement, but close enough) share the same frame.

wewt for that i guess... and i wouldn't be surprised if the srt-4 and this shared the same engine.

It's not too bad. I don't really like the grill though and the interior doesn't do it for me. I like the seats though.

P.S. first post in Imports section.

I love the "futuristic" interior on this one. The outside looks extremely agressive but I find it very ugly personally. I think it could definetely look better. That being said, of course I would take it anyday...

Man...Evolution fans would kick and punch everyone at Daimler Chrysler if they gave the EVO a parts bin Dodge engine.

I dont see why they just dont keep the 4g63T, nothing wrong with it! Makes plenty of power and has room to make plenty more. Don't mes with something that's already perfect!

Also, I'm kind of doubting the Caliber AWD and Evolution X share the same chassis...I dont see that happening...Caliber is a crossover more than anything, little heaver, much less sporty, even the SRT version.
