It's a bit mental, it just keeps pulling. I love it.

I prefer your hatch, seems to me like you've gone from nice trouble free motoring in a nice car with plenty of poke, to something that's got the potential to be nothing but trouble (and sounds like it's already started) but each to their own... enjoy your new car, and watch out for your licence.

From trouble free.........you're having a laugh. The hatch has cost me over a grand so far and it's still not as I'd like it.

The Evo has the potential to be trouble but that's applicable to any car. I'm fairly confident I've made the right decision, I'm happy anyway.

i owned a fq300, with few subtle mods running close to 380....its the fastest car ive owned, and the onnly car ive been kind of scared of if that makes sense...its also one of the cars i wish i still had....and ive had some nice cars.

Sadly he flogged it on before the offered ride in it

We'll have to wait and see, I'll do it every 3k or so. I won't do many miles as this will be a proper weekend car and the wife doesn't fit in the seats so the Wagon will be used for family outings.

Ain't that the truth. That's one of the things that's always put me off to be honest. I love all performance jap cars and have owned loads, but no Evo to date. Not sure why, just never got round to it.

Brutal!!!! It feels way faster. Just had a wee play during my lunch with the racelogic performance box. Not the best launch tbh as it's the first time I've launched it but 0-60 3.9s & 0-100 9.02s

The stretch of road was too short to get 30-130 etc but it's awesome, definitely a keeper. I won't get bored.

According to a typical 1/4 mile calculator it should be capable of 3.3s 0-60 and 7.4s 0-100 times. If it's still putting out 560bhp-ish.


Awesome car! Love it!!!

AYC car? Be careful with launches , diff will **** itself . Use Redline heavy duty in rear diff if you launching it regularly . Or just get your adrenaline rush at the track instead . Thats where they shine .
