    p.s. they are both kinda funny looking, but i decided that was unimportant once and for all when i ordered my WRX in late 02

    I remember countless F-body vs Mustang articles through the 80's and 90's... I would expect new articles on the STi and Evo whenever there is anything ranging from a minor to significant change in them. Or when a new competitor arises.

    I'd still choose an STi, but mostly because it is able to be equipped with a hitch. My Subaru is a daily driver and gets used for hauling my mountain bike, JetSki, etc... Mitsu doesn't recommend towing with the Evo. Otherwise, I'd seriously consider the Evo...

    Id take the STi just because I like to pretend I'm driving a rally car. I've also only met 1 cool evo driver out of everyone.

    Well, 2. themike is still cool

    While I do not like the US STi engine, it is pretty impressive how much power you can get out of the car on 91 octane... but the EVO can make decent power on 91 as well... and if I were choosing between these two cars, I wouldn't be looking for all out power... so EVO gets my vote for superior handling and great seats. (i daily drive with a sparco pro2000 so seats are important)

    For maximum power, I need displacement since I get 91 octane pee water. Hello Mustang!

    The MR is 5K more than the STi,so I would get the Sti and buy a good set of coilovers which would fix the understeer C&D are always *****ing about.

    Who needs an MR... only thing that truly makes the MR desireable is the 6-speed. (Other than that its just bling, overpriced parts that make minimal difference in performance and exclusivity) Performance wise a normal EVO or RS will still stomp on the STi.

    STi vs MR I would take the Evo MR hands down!

    But for that money I would have bought a G35c or used 540i 6speed over either of the 2 for that price.

    They say in one of those ariticles to buy the sti is buying it for it's raw road ripping power and to buy the evo for it's handling. Not shure what all the meant but i do know the evo handles much better.

    The article stated they prefer the normal EVO over the $ of the MR.
    imo, id have to drive both for afew days b4 making a decision. They are both so close in performance number that it will come down to personal choice, ex-sound,interior design/layout, cuphoders, radio (not realy because thats my first mod), exterior style. And people have different driving styles/techniques. The Evo may be better for one persons driving style and the sti for another.

    Both are sweet rides. C&D should of called it a tie

    That's true. That would make my decision easier. The MR looks good though, the dark grey is just awesome!

    I'd buy the EVO MR for the vortex generators.

    In reality, it would be a hard decision. Everything about the EVO makes me want to get it over the USDM STi except for one thing: reliability. That is the only thing that scares me.

    They are still so close. Great cars for the money. Looking to keep the car stock? Get the Sti. Looking for crazy horese power, and handling get the Evo.
