Si tu l'aimes en noire et blanche, tu devrais teinter des vitres en 20% ou 35%. Je crois que c'est une methode bon marché qui améliore beaucoup l'esthétique de toutes les voitures. Quand je l'ai fait, j'ai payé approximativement $170.

Et puisque tu aimes les détails noirs mais tu ne veux pas acheter des nouvelles roues noires, tu peux simplement retirer des enjoliveurs! Mais la rouille pourra apparaître... peut-être pas une bonne idée LOL. En été exclusivement? Haha...

Et je suis d'accord avec toi et les autres - ce forum est pour tous les véhicules...

P.S. Corrigez-moi si mes paragraphes sont mauvais, si tu veux.

I don't like the interior or the hub caps other than that looks good. Does that share the same lug pattern as the evo?

C'est vrai que de teindre les vitres lui donnerais un beau look , surtout sur une voiture blanche, ça fait un beau contraste :). Je vais essayé de lui trouver des enjoliveurs noir, peut-être que ça va donner un beau résultat.

Je n'ai rien de négatif à dire sur ton français, il est pas mal bon ;) Je ne m'attendais pas à écrire en français sur ce forum hihi.

I think the lug pattern is 5 x 114.3 on all lancers-ralliart-evo :)

I will try to find new hub caps eheh, I dont like them either

Then yes it is the same lug pattern then. That's the best lug pattern to have. My mazda shares it too, one as well as mustang. The after market is good for that lug pattern. Very good.

thanks again
For sure. Does yours have the paddle shifters?

They're actually kind of fun.

The lancer in my opinion is not a bad car, but I don't think I would have ever bought a base model. The rear end look is the same for all but the front end is not. I don't really like the front end of any of the newer lancers other than the EVO. My personal tastes.

I also think that, at least with the posted numbers, it would be kind of numbing to drive on a daily basis, or at all for that matter. I kind of spoiled myself with the SVT having a supercharger already bolted on when I bought it.

But in the end your the only guy who needs to like your car and if you do, then good for you! On the upside, you will pay a lot less in gas than I will!

I don't have the paddle shifters but I know it's quite fun to have.

I have the base model DE with CVT trans. Other than that, it's all parts and options I added. Spoiler, blackout grille, exhaust finisher and weatherteck floor mats :) The side skirts came with the car.

It has traction control, electronic power steering assistance, 4 wheels independant suspension, 4 disc brakes, and bi-zone ventilation ( front and back ), but no A/C.

That's about it for the principal description of the car

Thanks for the reply ;) For sure I cannot compare it to your supercharged SVT eheh :P But It does a strong acceleration even with the CVT trans. 0-60 in 7.9-8.0 seconds. The suspension is very stiff and one of the most important things for me when I bought the Lancer was the seats. They are firm and support my back ( have back problem ).

But it will be boring for you to drive it if we compare it to your SVT, for sure it should be a blast to drive :)



I'll post the pics of the car tomorrow when everything will be installed

Wheels from a higher trim, and a little lower ride height, it'll be good to go.
