Hey i live in new york and am considering buying an evo but ive never ridden in one. Was wondering if anyone would be willign to take me for a ride. I wouldnt ask you to let me drive the car but if you can just take me for a short ride so i can see how one feels it'd help me make up my mind
It would be greatly appreciated. I'll buy lunch! lol
If anyones interested please let me know my e-mail is [email protected] and my aim is pane2k.
Thanks
john

Go in on the dealerships and ask for a test drive :)

PS - why don't you just ask the seller(s) of the car you are looking at for a test drive.

i have a post on the evo forums as well.
And the reason i dont go into the dealership is because i dont plan on buying a brand new one so i dont want to get spoiled...and plus i dont want to deal with their bullshit because if i go for a test drive theyre going to want to sit me down and talk about financing etc. etc.
Thanks for the replies.
Phastsupra if you get any free time let me know
Thanks

Well me and jdmuscle here on the forums both got an EVO IX MR, so if its not raining this weekend and you drive out to DPA (deer park ave in LI) you can definately get a ride.

pane2k,

I would give you a ride in my car, but you are a bit far. Anyways, I'm thinking of selling my EVO IX MR. PM me if you're interested.

Thanks,
Allan

I'd def give you a ride too !!! If you were in the B'more area....
If you get a used one, get one from a dealer. Get the warranty.
That's a necessary thing.

Brakes/Rotors are expensive, the 5 gear syncros
may need replacing, clutch/flywheel may be shot from abuse.
Brembo rotors paint peel, and the wing clear coat too.
The drivetrain is noisy, the TB rattles, but a nice AWD launch....PRICELESSSSSS!!!!

Try to stay away from a modded one, Evos can't take the abuse like the Supra can !!!!
I love mine, be keepn it until I can get an EB(Electric Blue) one. G/L :D

That new S4 is HAWT !!! But you can do SOOOO MUCH more to an Evo !!! plus it's hella cheaper !!!
Get the MR if you gotta have a 6 speed. Other than that, they all have the same hp and motor. Well the IX's do.
The VIII's are a lil less. The MR rides a bit better, different suspension, but you can tweak a GSR or RS too.
And save several thou !!!
