I bought my Evo and had it shipped across the country without ever test driving it. I was a bit skeptical but read several reviews and bit the bullet. Driving this car is exhilarating. Every time I am behind the will I'm grinning ear to ear. It's by far the fastest car I've ever driven and for the money it's a steal.
The power/speed is by far the best part. The handling is a close second. The intoxicating whistle of the turbo begs you to push the pedal down a little bit more. The navi with music server is also very nice. The SSS Fosgate stereo is incredible. Phantom Black!
Larger 5th gear, the road noise at 80mph is severe. Get mud flaps to avoid paint damage.
