    2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution - VIII (M5)

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: No cruise control

    Advice: Hurry up

    Best car available period. Awd, turbo, 4 doors and can take a Ferrari around a corner. I bought mine in Nov and already have 21k on the clock. My only problem is staying out of the boost long enough to get 26 miles per gallon!!!

    2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution - MR (M6)

    Pros: AWD, turbocharged engine, speed, Recaro seats, great warranty, styling.

    Cons: No security system, no cruise control, expensive tires, cheap radio.

    Advice: Go straight for the MR edition, much better car than the standard or RS version.

    When the MR edition came out, I traded in my 03 Evo for one. The MR is so much better, the 6-speed, clutch, and driving experience is much more pleasant than my other Evo. The car is so fast, performs great, interior space is great, and I love the looks. Kids from high school give me thumbs up all the time when I drive by. The car however does need cruse control, and a security system. And watch for dealer markups on these cars. My opinion to you is to wait for the 06 Evo, it will be freshin up a bit. And if you can, wait for the 07 Evo which will be an all new model.
