    help anyone?

    I post on this other site called 707imports.com

    and they are telling me how much better the Evo is compared to the WRX. I know a lot about my car, and I thought that the evo's were more money than the wrx..am I wrong to think that?

    here is the thread where all this is taking place...just a note you have to register if your going to comment.

    You just tell them that if they want a car that is designed for precision and vehicle dynamics, the EVO wins.

    If they want a car that's fun to drive, they need a WRX as there is no comparison.

    Then direct them here

    Or tell them to go watch Best Motoring Vol. 5...The Drift King himself said he liked the feel of the WRX more than the Evo since it doesn't rely on computers to assist in handling...

    this isn't really proving my point though. They are saying that the evo is just better all around, when my argument is that the wrx is still an awesome car. Also how much does a new evo cost?

    actually....the link i posted proves your point exactly.

    although the EVO won all of SCC's tests, they still couldn't decide which car was better.

    Still, there's something honest and simple about the WRX that none of the staff can deny. Maybe it's the basic viscous differentials at the center and rear sending torque where they will without absolute precision. Maybe it's the off-beat, lumpy exhaust note. Maybe it's the undeniable fact that Subaru's humble WRX has always been more than the sum of its parts. We're not sure, but despite its lack of outright speed on this road we're calling this test a wash. It comes down to which car you like better. The EVO is ultimately quicker, but the WRX is a hell of a lot more fun.

    Ahhh, well for $24k a WRX is hard to beat for the money. The Evo will be better than our stock WRX all around, but it's $6k more expensive. Supposedly the Evo will be here for $30k, so if you add another $6k to a WRX to even it out, given the right combination of mods, it will easily surpass the performance of a stock Evo.

    Comparing the Evo to a WRX is apples to oranges anyway. If they really want to compare apples to apples, they should compare the Evo to the WRX STi. that's a much more even match stock.

    Have them watch the movie where tiff needle drives an EVO and then an STI. He liked the subaru much better than the EVO... Have you seen it?

    Or are we just talking about the WRX?

    Hey guys, new guy here...i've been reading all the posts for a while, just don't answer any.....don't have a WRX yet either.....as soon as i save up enough. Anyways......The EVO might be faster and all, but the WRX is cheaper, looks better, (the EVO looks pretty gay to me)....and I might be one of the only people who don't drive a WRX and who still love the interior. To me, if I could afford the Sti I'd get that one no doubt...but for now i'll even stick with the WRX.
    Too bad I couldn't afford a WRX, but life goes on........hopefully......

    Ok seeing as we get all these cars down here
    this is how they're priced (aussie dollars so divide by 2 for you guys)

    WRX $42,000

    Sti WRX $55,000

    Evo VII $70,000 or $80,000 (2 different models the $70,000 one has no A/C next to no interior no power windows or anything it's a rally car out of the factory. The 80K one is more of a road car)


    The evo VII stock is superior to the Sti (I posted an article on the Evo VII a little while ago) but not by much and if you stick the dollar difference into an Sti It will flat out annihilate the Evo.

    hope that helps

    When it comes to quality/reliability the Mitsubishi is far behind the the component/build quality of the Subaru.

    I completely agree with you on this one misterx. My 3000GT started giving me problems at a little over 50k. From that time until I sold it when it had 135k I paid for the car a second time in repairs including a new engine, and two new transmissions!
