    Ok so anywho always wanted to try the competition and after been nagged and bugged by one of my evo mates ...i was ok let me see if i can get a evo x ...tried as i could the insurance even for me no points no accidents clean as record insurance was double the 08STI i was holy hell wtf omg they must be crashing em or stealing em like crazy !! ....anyway i checked up about the ralliart which according to mitsu is the competition to the wrx ....so i go find a used one low miles drive it and i'm like wow impressed ...so basically done deal trade for sti ...!!

    ok so now owning it for like 2 months ...what can i tell you ....

    1. its a stealth evo ...basically its a Lancer GTS with a evo x motor(single scroll turbo) and evo 9 drivetrain with AYC , active diffs etc

    2.it has for some reason the evo x Mr's tranny a SST sequential tranny u can drive in full auto for city or if u want drive on paddles ....tranny is very nice imho like one poster mentioned above it is fairly low geared i would prefer a lil higher ratios mid to high range well driving in normal mode , as it also has a sport mode which holds the gering a lil longer before shifting and serious the car shifts fast and smooth no worries and this is my 1st automatic altho to call it a automatic like what most drive is really a insult.

    3. it has the sight n sound and seat package ...a 650watt rockford sound system which makes the stock sti sound system laughable !! ...., HID headlghts nice clean etc ...recaro seats well i'd buy the car just for these easily better than any wrx or sti seat out there unless you own the recaro versions which are only avail on cars as stock outside the usa.

    4. in the sti with my commute driving to save gas i could eek maybe 23-24mpg to work ...in the ralliart easily average 25-27mpg ...cant ***** there

    5. funny is my sti wheels fit right on as the ralliart has the same pcd and offset ! (evo x does not)

    in closing i would say $ to $ its better than a wrx and more in the league of a sti. just a sti with more electronic do dads at that.

    I like the idea of active diffs and even more I like the idea of not shifting or at least not having to row with a gear lever and stomp on a clutch over and over again all day. Paddles sound good to me.

    Sorry, Spiro. Bury me with the stick shift embalmed permanently into my right hand. Or something.

    having driven only manual (stick) cars up until the Ralliart ,
    i'm very impressed with the ease of use and the flexibility to switch between full auto and full paddle shifting in both normal and sport modes

    Weasel my friend, you're crazy

    Good to hear that you enjoy the car man, but I could never see myself driving one personally. I'm all with Ray, I'll never go back to an automatic or semi-auto again. To me, the Ralliart, and even the Evo, just look too much in common with the base lancer it comes from and seems more masculine and aggressive in my opinion. Its also a chick magnet... My girlfriend and I all started over her commenting on a picture I posted of my car on facebook... and that was 14 months ago and we're still together lmao

    I love the wide wheel archers and hood scoop, and bumper cutouts on my WRX, it helps the car stand out. It sounds better (not talking about the radio here ) and is a good deal faster. I will admit though, I am jealous of the Ralliarts option for those Recaros... I'd trade my left nut to have factory option Recaros in my WRX LOL

    Anywho, enjoy the car broski! Both good cars, just for people with different tastes

    Our Kia minivan switches back easily between auto and manual shifting. Because race car.
