    Default Got EVO`d this morning Holy ****!!!

    Was driving home from work this morning about 1/2 midnight, was approaching a roundabout and the roads were quiet I was just joining it when I saw some lights coming at speed up the hill towards me on the right, the next opening down, I thought ****** hell he`s shifting so changed down to 3rd and floored it to get out of his way. I heard a roar and a phiiiizzzz, he went me on the dual carriage way like I was standing still then pulled into a service station 100 yards up the road and was getting out at the pump when I was going past !!!! ... I have never seen a car accelerate (or brake) soooo fast, it was like being overtaken by a performance bike ... I have driven a scooby but I reckon the evo is in a completely different league ....


    Top of my shopping list now .....

    A guy I know has an Imprezza RB5 and an EVO6, although the scooby has knackered diff at the mo. He says the evo (albeit a 6) outclasses the limited edition RB5

    I don't really like Scoobys and Evo's. I appreciate them for their engineering but I'd never buy one. And, like the incidence explained above, the owners are often found to be driving the cars like complete muppets!

    Only probs with the evos is the service interval - every 4500 miles and at £90 a go!!! (oil change)

    dont fancy that much as I really fancied an EVO 6

    My Mates got a Evo 7, another has a Evo 8 fq300. awesome cars extremely quick, but impossible to live with.

    Neither can park their cars in town when shopping, if at a supermarket they will get dented, Police always follow them, Service intervals are ridculous. The evo 7 was his since new, it is now 4 years old, has done 13000 miles(13k), but still has had to be serviced every 6 months or 4500 miles. so two services a year at £500 a time!!!. Having said that he went looking at a evo 9 fq340 ( i think) yesterday!

    both are very, very fast. The Fq300 we had the speedo reading 175 with 4 blokes & a boot full of tools for the kart!! Simply Awesome!!!!!!!!!

    I lived with an Impreza first and an Evo as an everyday car for a few years. Awesome cars, just grip and grip. Impreza wasn't as quick as the Evo but IMO had better handling due to the engine setup (Flat four).

    Impreza for handling and sound (Gorgeous) and Evo for the straights and looks.

    Still run a Legacy with an Impreza engine in and other mods for the trackday motor, stripped out as sold Impreza shortly after Xmas.

    Did anyone see 'Car Wars' on BBC1 last week? They were chasing someone who had broken into someone's house to steal the keys to an Evo 8 FG300. The police in their Scooby had no chance and fully admitted it. They did catch up with the car later but the culprits were long gone.

    Yes AJA we saw that, they had no chance of catching them.
    They must have some nerve, reaching keys with some sort of hook & pole!
