    BBS, after a 20 year dry spell, finally has their gorilla-handshake-hold on the aftermarket again.

    Get ready for 1989.

    yeah, read about it today in SCC, badass as usual even though my past mitsu experience was a nightmare...........different playing field though when comparing a gst and evo.......differently different.

    lighter weight BBS wheels, the EVO 8 comes with BBs wheels, but these are lighter.

    The car is 300 lbs lighter over all and makes more power....but when it goes on sale it'll be about 33-34k I believe they said (in SCC)...so for 7 more hp, 300 less pounds and a 6 sp you pay 4-5 grand more. (base to base)

    Nice car...but I wouldn't buy a "tuner car" (this or the STi)...I'd rather build it myself and make it exactly how I want it.

    well if "exactly how you want it" includes AWD and turbo then either one of these is a damn good starting point
    its not like just cuz its new its unmodifyable... there is still lenty of room to grow

    and yes there are other options
    TSi, GXT, AllTrac, that 323, etc etc
    then there are also other NA AWD cars that would make good starting points as well
    older 2.5RS, audi, etc etc

    blah blah blah :blah:

    all im pointing out is that either one of those cars (evo or sti) has lots of potential to be made much faster than they are from the factory

    I know they still have potential...but they're more of a status symbol. I would rather break out the tools and build myself a nice sleeper DA Integra with a custom turbo kit or something. I just think the car is much cooler when the owner built it.
