Probably not. It snows here a lot in the winter so I need something that I can drive year round and having so many friends with them has seemed to influence my decision.
Especially now that I've own one I don't think I could go back to only driving a mustang. The evo has extremely responsive steering with insanely good handling, it rides better than my IRS mustang and when I go e85 next week it'll be faster too.
And let me tell you, being able to floor it in 1st gear with full traction is awesome!

Jez, that's a steal... anything wrong with it?! Evo's in my area similar to yours are going for like $22.5k

E85 ftw and what is this traction you speak of?

Nope, its in great condition! The guy who I bought it from owned this one which was his garage queen, another one which he was racing at the track I met him at, and a roller which he is turning into a dedicated track car. He told that he is replacing the evo with an e46 M3 which he is driving down to Florida to get.
Oh and this traction thing is really weird, I'm still getting used to it!

Gratz I guess, personally I'm not a fan for the imports regardless of how fast it is or how it drives because imports are imports to me and I'm strickly an american fan when it comes to vehicles. Don't get me wrong I have a few friends with EVOs and I don't hate on them they just dont do it for me, but even they say at the end of the day its still just a lancer.

Wow...never knew an 03 rice burner could be 18k....call me a hater, but it is a matter of opinion. If your happy with it that is all that counts.

Haha coming from the guy with a 2010 V6 mustang which has less horsepower and weighs more stock than an 03 evo. Sounds like a total ricer to me!

I understand though Uber, some people just don't like 'em. As long as you respect their performance!

Its kind of hard to compare a 17k car to a ~$5 car. Just sayin... Nice Evo though. What are your first mods going to be?

Well its already got all the good bolt ons, full exhaust, lowered etc. so my plans are to just convert it to e85 and since its already got an upgraded fuel pump and big injectors all I need is a new tune, and then get a CF hood since I think that'll go great with the white and call it good for awhile. Maybe a couple other things here and there but nothing major.

I purposely bought a car with some mods on it so I wouldn't have to spend all my money on tons of mods.

It'll probably need an upgraded clutch eventually since the one on it now isn't very strong.
Hoping to hit around 400WHP so that should keep me happy!

I gotta agree, comparing an 03 evo to an 03 mustang gt isnt a good comparison comeig in and saying it handles better , better this, better that. On average in the comparision the evo is gonna cost 10k+ more than the mustang gt.

I wasn't comparing it to an 03 mustang stock the guy who made the comment about how he couldn't believe a ricer could go for 18K drives a 2010 mustang. The comment was about an 03 evo vs a 10 mustang and how him calling a car with better performance a ricer was kind of ironic. A 2010 mustang V6 goes for more than the evo.
And that is exactly the reason I got an evo, I wanted an upgrade...

The bumper looks better in person, once I get a big FMIC it'll look awesome.
And to the wheels, that is a yes! I think those along with a CF hood will look great.
In the future I might sand down the spoiler and then get it re cleared because underneath the paint its all CF so it would be black hood, wheels and spoiler.
