I loved my Evo, don't get me wrong, but I realized after owning it that it wasn't the right car for me. I needed a better daily driver and something with more utility and more safety. Also need AWD. So, the R32 seemed like the logical choice IMO. The Evo is a wonderful car and very fast...but I never planned to mod the engine to really do the car any justice. If I was a track whore, I would have kept the Evo. But, I'm not so daily driving capabilities while still being very sport is what I needed. I read a little description of the R32 somewhere and it was described as "the racecar for everyday driving." I agree :wink:

Sick evo.

The interior in those is terrible compared to the R, IMO.

I agree :laugh:

The Evo is a $13,000 economy car with a crappy interior...but has $20,000 in engine, suspension and AWD stuffed into it :biggrin:

At least the R starts out as a GTI which is much nicer than a base Lancer :biggrin:

I took very good care of that car. The guy who bought it got a very good Evo that hasn't been beaten on like all the other Evos.

Thanks man. Check out post #6 in this thread. I put a little description of why I switched. Still sad to see the Evo gone, but damn is this R a nice car :wink:

It was painful to let the Evo go. Definitely hard, but I did it for many good reasons. And, we all know the R is no slouch :smile:

Thanks for the props on the pics.
