As much as the evos are good the subaru is definetly the best all rounder especially for a daily . Looked at some evos before the hawkeye and I would of had to spend at leat £4-5k more for a one with a similar spec to the subaru. If that money saved was spent on more mods I know which one would be quicker.

I've always liked Evo's but very expensive compared to Subaru's.

And that being said always been told a Subaru is a drivers car Very Happy

My mate had a evo 7 a couple of year ago running high boost it wasnt a kick up the arse away from 500bhp
but the brakes never worked until they warmed up you couldnt boost for another ten mins after that it done -8 to the gallon it had to have brake fluid every 20 seconds it had to be serviced every 500 miles and it took a few centurys to cool down. You couldnt nail it on anything other than a dry road in a straight line or it just spun the 487bhp it had away.
other than them minor things brilliant motor.

i made that out to be worse than it is alot of the stuff i mentioned was due to all the aftermarket stuff that had been fitted.

Ready.... I like Evo's. Think they look nicer than Scoobs and if i was to have a daily like that, i would probably get an Evo.

Theres a Mitsi garage not far from me and before I bought my first Scoob I went and test drove one of the Evo's. Think it was an FQ300, but after about 5 mins in the car I'd already decided I didnt like it. I thought it must be built out of tupperware and lego, didnt realise you could get that much cheap looking plastic in one car and the ride (in my opinion) was bloody awful. WIth it being a brand new car I was really surprised, compared to the first drive in the WRX which at the time I thought was pretty much the same car, with just a different badge on, how wrong I was - chalk and cheese. Ive heard people say the Evo is a great track car and the Scoob is a great everyday car - whatever your preference I know which one I'd have over the other every time. But again, its just my opinion.
I'm sure you could read a hundred posts on the lancer forums which woudl say exactly the opposite Laughing
