    Question Trade-in my REX for the EVO?

    Iím NOT going to. I just think about.
    Why?
    1.I can not accept the stock sterling wheel. Iíve replaced it to chamois 350mm rally stile, and I love it.




    But I lose my cruse control and miss it!!!



    2. I have replaced the windshield twice, but have a chips again. How long????

    3. I got a 4 small chips on the hood of my baby and about 7 on the front bumper, in spite of the fact that I have covered transparent vinyl on the hood!
    I have my second car (infiniti G35) twice longer, but do not have any scratch or chip on it. Why?

    4. After 1 year of driving, WRX is not seems like a fist enough. And defiantly not enough of torque.

    OK. I went to dealership and did a test drive (btw, itís not easy to get an EVO for a test drive, I had to shake my black AMEX card to get one!) and found out what I like this car Ė ití faster, sharper, sporty, better handling and got nice yellow color as option (I LOVE brightly yellow!).

    But two thinks stop me to close the deal: the Evo has 5.5 inches ground clearance, and this is not a good deal against WRXís 6.1 inches which sometimes is not enough (when driving on snow or gravel). I donít want to braking in front of each bump or rock!

    Even an Sti got 5.9! But Sti has a big engine, big sterling wheel and much more expensive, so itís not a right car for me. WRX, or Evo.

    The second thing is ordinary Ė I love my rex!

    What folks think about? Is Evo8 better than WRX?

    Here is my baby.

    Yes, you do.

    Keep the Rex, yeah it's slower...but it's Subaru reliability and I think it looks way sexier.

    Why?
    I detected just a two problem: 1) low ground clearance 2)expensive intercooler located at front and may be damaged easily.
    But the interior is a big question -- it's cheap...

    evo's a better car, no doubt... but since you already own the rex, i dont know if its really worth trading already. especially with mitsu going down the crapper lately.

    i would stick with the rex and give this decision more thought

    i'm sorry if i may seem ignorant to anything here,.....BUT

    why trade in your wrx to get an evo? do you have a mods done to your wrx? if it is bonestock, i can understand that you may feel that its not fast enough, but easy RELIABLE mods is the reason i chose the wrx.

    why dont you save your money and time and just mod the WRX? go stage 2 if you havent already. and if you have have go stage 4

    i dont know, i wouldnt waste my time, money, or paper to drive a EVO. and your right, the interior is very bland, wrx is not the best but id rather sit in a wrx then a evo

    and yes, the evo is a better car, but if you spend the money in mods you saved from buying an evo, the wrx will be a beast. i am talkin equal money value, NOT mod for mod. wrx modded with the money you will save from not going with the evo.

    I don Ďt have a mods. Iíve done some work and spend some money for protection and several wills sets (gravel, show and street), rally steering wheel, blow off valve, intake...
    I do not see any reason to do a modifications. For example, get a good Brembo brakes will cost more than $6k. Sti is $6000 more expensive than WRX and already has a Brembo as well as 300hp and other benefits.
    Btw, I found out, what I can get the STi for $480/month, however a new EVO will be $520Ö

    [thoughtful] may be get an STI?
