I LOVE the white dude (I may be partial though )! My cousin had a evo IX before trading, and I gotta say those cars are beautiful for a 4 door. Very hard to make a sedan look sporty, but they pulled it off.

And I think the front bumper looks ok enough, never been a fan of the visible inter-cooler piping though. Sweet ride, keep us posted on the progress and good choice with the E85 upgrade.

I know you're getting some **** for this but completely agree with your decision. You get a complete package with this car. Snow vehicle, great starting platform, and looks that could kill. I'm one for american cars as well but this fits your needs and that's what counts. I wish I could get one but I'm still very partial to my B.

The down side of the bumper is that it looks like the holes on the corners of the bumper look like a mistake. Like the previous owner took a hack saw to it to make the piping fit. Like it needs more plastic to cover the piping.

Get some engine and interior shots.

[QUOTE=Harryman2002;7730021]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!

the car looks great man. just be careful with it tho, from what i've seen they're very finicky. my buddy sold his 420whp gto for a 400whp gt30 evo8, and the evo's broke down on him numerous times already(blew his motor, fixed it, then dropped a valve, fixed it, now has no more 2nd gear). but when it runs good, it's faaaaast.

not sure if i can post this here or not, but here's a vid of his evo putting a good whoopin on my nitrous 2v.

Nice looking car dude, I think the tails need darkening (like the headlights) and that would give the car a nice white/black theme.

My cousin took his tails and heated the edges up and pulled the covers open, taped and painted the chrome reflective parts flat black and the car looked SO much better after that IMO.

Either way, I think it looks pretty awesome.

awesome choice brother! Great car! I'd like to get into one of these someday. Until that day comes though, I'll stick to my mustang.

Nice pictures Harry. The car looks awesome. If I lived in an area with bad weather I'd probably would buy one of these.
