Picked up my Evo X yesterday morning!

I bought a Rally Red Evo X yesterday morning and I love it! It has the SSS package, and the Aero Kit.

I was about to buy a 3rd gen rx-7 with almost no miles and decided against it.

I wont look back. Glad to be part of the evolution.

How about I take some pics tonight. Maybe that will increase the credibility of my post. (Good Lord)

I figured I would wait until I did something to it (Tint, etc) to take pictures... but sure, Ill take some tonight.

I am not mechanically inclined at all, so I have never had the desire to modify a car before... But I have a feeling that this car may pull me into it.


P.S. I have driven the Evo VIII and now, of course, the X. My first impression of the X was that it did not handle as well. Refering to the pinpoint TIGHT accuracy of the VIII when you threw it from side to side. Now that I have driven the X more, here is what I think: The older ones felt tighter throwing it from side to side because they are just more raw. The new ones handle as well, it just doesnt feel like it because they are more refined and are just plain and simple technological wizards. Badass. Period.
Also, the power delivery is much smoother. On the old ones the turbo seemed to be "on" or "off." Which to me seemed like it would make daily driving a little too tense. You would always be shifting right when the turbo was about to tear you apart. The new one is smooth as hell.

I am still in pursuit of a 3rd gen Rx-7. I am scared to buy one for some reason. They are tempermental and I am not mechanically inclinded. I thought I was ready this time...
The main reason I bought the Evo first is because this winter has been harsh here in Utah and I have a '07 Tacoma 4x4 and an '04 Rx-8 that are daily driven. My wife and I trade off. Every time there's a cloud in the sky we know we're f*cked because the Rx-8 doesnt do well with moisture. We decided at the last second that buying another car that wouldnt go in the snow would be a bad Idea. Not only that, when I purchase my 3rd gen Rx-7 It will be a garage queen with less than 10k miles. And I'll only put 1500 miles on it a year tops.
We wanted to buy another usable car first. And the Evo is very usable. I f'in love it.
When I purchase the 7 I will have two snow machines (Evo + Tacoma), and two sports cars (Rx-7 + Rx-8).
I stressed like crazy for a few days before finally deciding on the Evo. I usually second guess myself after buying anything... but I am absolutely loving the X

Pics tomorrow. I suck.

I purchased the car for a few hundred dollars under MSRP. Its absolutely the best I could do. Ive never paid almost sticker price before.
I purchased the Rx-8 for $26.5k. Down from $33 something.
I purchased the Tacoma for $26.9k. Down from $30. Not a huge discount... but very decent.


lilquazyvietboi ,
How much are your friends looking to spend on a 3rd gen 7? Because the price tag of what I was looking at was higher than the original sticker price of the car in '94.
