Yea for $35K thats not THAT bad, the old MR was around $34K. Now the Railliart for $25K is too good of a deal to pass up.

If you guys want Ill take pics and try to record a video when I go to test drive one next week. Anyone want pics or a video of anything specific?

Hell no. The Evo IX interior looked and felt like complete cheap plastic and there was nothing there. The X's interior is sex and I love how they did the tachometer like the TRD Supra one, starting at the bottom. Plus with the navigation and everything the car actually has some normal features and isnt all go like the previous Evo's. I actually liked the old Recaro seats though over the new seats.

35-40k :lol:

No thanks, I'll by a 3 series.
335i Twin Turbo does sound good but I also heard that they are having a lot of overheating issues. Honestly I wouldnt touch the new BMW's until after a year or two since they are already getting issues this early with their turbo'd V6.

The only thing that I'm having a hard time getting used to with the new Evos is the rear-end.

+1 I love everything about the new Evo's but that rear end is not working at all for me. Im trying really hard to like it but then I start thinking about the old Evo's and I start to want that instead of the new ones :scream:

Personally.... I think all of the Evo interiors have been boring. They are cut and dry with it seems like the bare essentials and a few gauges thrown in. However, IMO that adds to the raw feel of the Evo.

I will be interested to test drive the X and see how computerized it feels. I have driven an VIII and a IX and they both have that somewhat raw feel to them which adds to the experience.

You won't find a 335i under $40. Hell, it would be difficult to find a 328i under $40, at least on a dealer lot, they just aren't going to stock stripped down models like that.


Anyway, EVO X looks good. Mark-up is to be expected.

I want oooooooooone, but gosh that is horrible gas mileage, its worse then the Evo 8 and 9 lol.
But i guess if you want a car like that then gas should be your last concern.
