    Yeah, I spent some time researching the issue and I know exactly what you're saying. But I don't launch or speed-shift the car and I have no mod plans, so at least based on anecdotes the odds are my clutch will be OK for some time. I hope.

    Whats up Chuck. I have a gvr4, but most of my buddies drive Evos. Heres a pic of his with the lancer wing and his rediculous Ralliart wheels:

    both subaru dealers i went to said they don't let anyone test drive sti's, course they could just be saying that to me because i'm 18, but i didn't even ask about driving one, he just said it when we finished driving the 06 wagon.

    Thanks for the photo, bjbrad85; mine should look a lot like that, except I agree, those wheels kinda suck. I had the center pillar removed from my spoiler before they painted it. I hope it turns out OK!

    Where's the love?!?!? I love the look of my winged Evo....




    The way I see it, as long as you don't act like a ricer the wing is perfectly acceptable. I'm very fond of the wing as far as the complete look of the car. But I like to keep a car the way it looks stock as far wings go. If it has a wing stock, I'll leave it there. If not, then a wing will never grace the trunk.

    Ah, the Evo twin speaks!

    I actually like the wing pretty well, but when I showed the car to my wife she said sure, get the car if you want it, but take off that wing! I figured since she was so reasonable about the car, I'd go along with the wing removal, esp. since she's a realtor in this conservative area, who may need to chauffer her clients around in it sometimes. I also have several friends who are militantly anti-rice, and they would give me endless grief about the wing if I left it on, not to mention my in-laws.

    Maybe I'm just a wimp, but I didn't relish getting all that grief and ridicule, not to mention attracting the Man. But I suspect I will put it back on sometimes. I have it all nice and snug, wrapped in towels in my garage.

    keep the big ugly wing for the track or when you go to a highschool football game but keep it off for the unexpected detruction that you will give to those whom don't know.

    Well, all things considered, you DEFINITELY made the best choice as far as wings are concerned. Luckily my better half loves the wing. But if she she were a realtor and their was some off chance she had to drive anyone around in the car in a professional manner then yeah, wings gotta go. It really doesn't say "take me seriously."

    As far as military anti-rice friends....what can ya do? I live in a military town and the amount of rice here will blow your socks off. So, if anything is said here, I would have to refer to a certain pot talking to a kettle.

    Looking clean!! My girl wanted a red MR, but I just felt like it attracted too much attention from the cops. Otherwise, sexy color!!!

    $25,999 including destination, but NOT including tax or registration, is the best price I have seen for a new RS IX. It is dealer cost, and the Evo Forum people are pretty much in agreement that this is as low as it goes unless you find some unusual deal.

    Check out this thread to see the dealer prices for all the models, at South Coast Mitsubishi in Costa Mesa, California. They are famous for offering the lowest prices in the country. Some people from the East Coast even buy South Coast's Evos and have them shipped out there. And South Coast just got a huge new shipment of them. I paid $500 more than their price for my SSL, and bought locally.

    Regards,

    Eric

    This is what I'm doing. Vehicle is already bought, and I'm just waiting for the shipment to arrive in mid-April. I ended up going with a white MR - for this price, who can resist? Even with shipping figured in, it's still thousands less than I could get it for locally, plus I get to get one right off the delivery truck, so no idiots doing drop-clutch test drives.

    Excellent.

    Update: I met a bunch of friends for lunch today, and parked in a spot, nose in. No wing. After lunch, one of the girls said, "Let's see your new car!" I was reluctant because without the wing, from behind it really looks pretty tame and ... well ... econo-boxy. And these are mostly people who drive SUVs and big sedans and laugh at compact cars. Not car people at all.

    I agreed, though, so of course the whole gang follows us over there; like 8 people, including some people I didn't really know.

    The whole walk over to the car I'm trying to explain that it's this street-legal rally car, see, and the money all went into the drive train, and it doesn't look like much on the outside, yada yada yada.

    We get to the car, and everyone is asking, "You mean this is it? This is your new car?" Meaning, "Man, it looks so cheap." And I'm thinking, yeah, if you don't know what to look for, it doesn't look like much.

    I tried to explain some more, but got nowhere so I just laughed and gave up. Then I gave the girl a ride back to her office in it, and she encouraged me to punch it, so I did; gave her a bit of a rush. That was fun.

    I don't know why I just told that story except to say, to 99% of the world, a wingless Evo looks just like a basic econono-box, like a Corolla S. And yet when I see one, my heart starts pounding.

    That is a sweet wagon. My brother has the same color and nose style, but different wheels. Great ride.
