lookin @ 2 cars . . .

I've been wanting a Lancer for a while now. Which one do you think I should get?

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS

or.....

Lancer Evo


I know the Evo is a bad ass car, but the price is a bit more than I'm looking to pay. Like the GTS???

If you can afford the Evo, splurge on it. They're friggin' nasty. Otherwise, I'd go with a new Lancer as opposed to the one you posted. That one has too much going on IMO.

On a side note, I test drove a Outlander this weekend, and I loved it. I'll probably be picking one up within the next year. I was very impressed with it, and quite surprised by Mitsubishi.

the GTS is an auto, do you really want that? If it were me and I wanted a purely fun car to just ride around in I would go 100% manual, not "tip-tronic"(whatever they are called) or anything like that. Not saying autos or "tip-tronics" arn't fun or anything because they are, I just like manuals.

I drove a Audi TT with a turbo'd engine, and the car was way faster than my focus, but it was both auto and "tip-tronic" and I didnt like it very much, it felt weird.

I personally like the looks of that GTS and the price! A lot of people have those EVO's by me. There performance is awesome but I think they are kinda of plain looking. No one will have a GTS like that if you purchase it.

Obvioiusly I would want to Evo, but the price was my main concern. I watched a few videos on the GTS and it doesn't sound all that great to me. Here's an Evo I can afford if my girl is willing to drive 2 hours with me....

2006 Lancer Evo

It says mileage unlisted, but in the description it says 36k.
