Recommended Posts

So yeah. I will be buying one of these within the next few months.

http://www.lexus.com/models/is/index.html <--- Lexus IS 250 with a 6 speed manual.

http://www.mitsubishicars.com/lancerevolution/index.html <--- Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9 MR.

They are both awesome, but here's the neat things about each one:

Lexus IS 250

Ultra reliable

Very refined

Less Expensive than the EVO 9 MR

Lots of Creature Comforts

Rear Wheel Drive

Excellent resale value

Good handling & performance

Very sporty looking, but yet classy

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9 MR

This is the king of economy sport sedans

0 to 60 in about 4.5 seconds

This car comes from the WRC ---> http://www.mitsubishicars.com/MMSA/jsp/ral.../raFrame_VL.jsp

4 wheel drive ---> http://www.mitsubishi-motors.com/motorspor.../05_01monte.ram

Handles like a go-kart, but yet still civilized enough to drive in the city

Can pretty much outrun, outbrake, & outhandle cars that cost in the $90,000 range & above

That being said, each car has it's own flaws. The IS 250 is pretty heavy at 3,400 LBS & is not really meant to be driven like a sports car. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9 costs about $38,000 & it's pretty much well known that this car is not a sleeper, so I would get reved on a lot & the cops would be on my ass often. Hahaha!

So yeah. Which one would you pick & why? (^o^ ) <3

Buy a domestic.


^ The only domestic that I like is the Cadillac CTS-V with a 6 speed manual, but that's out of my price range. I also like the Ford SVT division. Too bad that they don't have any 4 door performance cars at this moment. I wish they would bring the Ford Mondeo ST220 (SVT equivalent) to the USA. That's a pretty neat car.

But yeah. Most domestics don't interest me. (^o^ ) <3

If the performance of cars was the only factor involved in purchasing one, everyone would be driving Ferraris (or whatever other high end car make you would like to substitute). I'm sorry if your blue blooded brain can't wrap around the concept of thrift and afordability GPS, but for most Americans such ideas hold precedence.

So because you can't compare the proformance and durability of american cars to Japanese or German cars, you make up bullshit reasons.

Or maybe we just have some national pride, you fucking Commie.

Seriously, though, I've never had an American car go completely to shit on me like my Mazda did. Plus, like Belial said, some of us come from blue-collar beginings and would rather our money went back to people like us than somewhere else. Until you've dealt with an entire city folding up because of jobs going overseas, you wouldn't understand.

And I'm from Michigan. Nearly every city in Michigan is totally dependent on the Auto Industry and now that they are packing up, the entire state's economy has nose-dived toward rockbottom.

Not really, most of the parts are outsourced to other countries. I think there is one that's made entirely in America, but I might be thinking of another make.

Well yeah the parts aren't American :tongue: (it's Toyota) but, that's a minor detail, the car I believe is still considered American. I may be wrong though ... :smile:

While GPS' argumements seem... nonexistant? I think he's right. It's pretty stupid to buy American when you know that Japanese and European are all around better. This isn't a TV we're talking about, this is a many thousand dollar investment that you don't want fucking crapping out on you just becuase you wanted to be proud and buy American.
