Ahh that scares me! I just don't like other people driving my car

Yeah; the Evoque is cool from a 4WD standard, I went and test drove one and it wasn't bad.

EVO and WRX STI is still high on my list. ST coming in behind--it's more of whether I want a compact power house but after reading the SCT thread on the ST turbo I dunno.

M3 is really nice; you can get a decent used for $50k or loaded $70k. I don't think I really want a RWD in the snow tho; I'd probably wreck it.

I was playing with some artwork and this popped in my head.

GSR with an MR trunk lip (ditch the huge wing), white body, with carbon fiber roof and upper hood section where the vents are.

Drop some black BBS or OZ on it; lower it a tad.

SEXY.

i love EVO's. not so much the EVO X but i love the VIII and IX. i've worked on a lot of DSM's (Talon's, laser's, and eclipses) i think they switched to the Mivec or whatever in the IX, but i think the 4G63 was used in the EVO before that. they're pretty easy to work on, and can get a lot of power out of them. my buddy has a 1992 laser rs AWD turbo. probably pushing 600 horsepower.

I only drive new cars unfortunately.

I have no interest in older EVO's, WRX, etc.
