This is my first EVO. And im gonna have to say this is the best bang for your buck. It gets looks from everyone. And yes that includes cops! But if you keep your foot out of it. You will be safe as kittens. It takes mods very well. With 15 to 22 gain in hp with bolt ons. They are also somewhat cheap. Great for 4 whenever you have them. But the power will give them whiplash. So save the power for alone time! But you wont be upset with the AWD its amazing. Its grip and go. Launching is the best. The transmission is great. Smooth. The six speed is a must.
Brembo brakes. Fast spool. around 3300 rpm. The exterior. The start of the Engine when it first spools in first. The BOV. Gauge pack.
Cruise Control! 80 comes around fast when you're just driving down the highway. And the cop comes. and comes around and gets you.
This car has made me very happy. I have never had any problem with it. very fast. even with light mods it still makes the car ran like a charm. But the cops will always be looking for you to make a mistake so take it easy and you'll be fine. anyone who drives this car will never be disappointed with the performance, it's a rocket ship.
I have owned 3 Evo's Now. The IX MR is the Top of the line for the Evolution's, and is even better than the new 2008's according to a few companies. This model in 06 was the last year for this Body style, and for the MR Edition last year for the Manual 6 speed. Every Evo I have owned has never had a problem other than normal Brake changes, Clutch at around 45-60k miles, but don't forget this is a performance machine. Clutch isn't meant to last forever. Car looks great, Drives even better. You will get no breaks in this car from cops although... just keep it safe and you will be okay. Go to the track to unleash the BEAST!
2006 Stock Gauges, Oil Temp, Boost, Battery, New Black Suede/Leather seats. With Red stitching, Titanium MOMO Steering Wheel. BBS Wheels
Just a bit better on gas would have been great, But can't complain at 26 mpg Highway for a car that will beat most cars 3 times as much as it in a race
Driving enthusiasts this is not a car to be ignored, at first drive I was hooked, it surpassed my performance expectations, just an unforgettable experience. You have not lived until u drive an Evo!! Just go out and drive one - you will not be disappointed.
Suede Recaro bucket seats, Sport Gauges, Front Fascia, roomy interior which is not not as spartan as people say it is and decent gas mileage, and best of all the turbo and G forces.
Ride quality, and ride height, if you're not gonna take it off-road you should lower it by an inch or two.
