There's a brilliant Top Gear video of the MR v STI WR1.

The MR trounces the WR1. I'll look for the link and post.

Is the WR1 really $54k ???!!!

are you sure about those performance numbers? sounds doubtful that -100 lbs could make it so much faster. is there anything else done on the RS that would make it that much faster?

Were those tested on same day, same condition, same driver? Those number is only good for rough estimate. With those trap speeds it looks like the RS had more traction or harder launch.

100lbs will add a tenth at most but remember the RS sould make more wheel horspower due to the omit of A/C.

hy everybody (this is my first activitiy in your forum)

the subaru wr1 does not have a 2.5 engine it's a 2.0! all standart subaru sti have only 2.0 engines with 265hp and they don't have the acd!

here in europe an evolution is about $41000 with 265hp but with the acd and we have the 5speed manual transmisson.

in the uk they have all the japanese spec cars (rhd) such as the nissan skyline, the subaru impreza spec c or the mitsubishi evolution mr

in the uk they also have the evo 8 since about 2 years with the 6 speed gearbox but i heard that they had a lot of problems with this box so maybe the 5 speed is the better choice!

and a mitsubishi evolution mr in the uk is also $54k so i don't know where the problem is :-)

The problem is the folks over here in the US aren't used to looking at the brutal taxes you folks pay.

We'll probably get the MR for somewhere in the $33-35K range. If they ever did make an FQ-320 version for the US, it'd probably only be about $38K tops.

Does this statement still hold truth after the recall on the linkages for the 6-speed shifter? Hopefull our MR will get a revised box after 18 month of beta testers from around the world. I'm sure mitsubishi is really carefull in the US market due to warrentee claim/ lawsuits and etc. Unfortunaly for this reason i doubt we will ever see S-Ayc up until it's 100% reliable.

@gtr

i hope that your 6speed box is better than the first one's!


@MisterSpoot

i know very good your car prices because i was thinking about to buy an evo in the us

but my deal i had didn't came true. and with the $exchange it's not so easy at all to know how much i have to pay finally.

and since i know that you'll maybe get the mr i'm thinking about to buy an mr but with your huge mark up's it's going to get too expensive if you think about that i have to ship the car to europe and i have to pay 11.6%taxes and maybe another $2k to make the car street legal. so finally the car would be about $43k

i don't know your taxes in the us but in switzerland we have to pay 11.6% on cars but for example in germany they pay 16% and in france they have something around 18% in the uk it is 17.5%

one good thing here is that we don't have that mark up **** here you can go to a dealer and chose your car specs than the dealer offers you the car even with a discount and you can order the car you want.

@aznflip2o6

i don't know why you wan't the evoVII it's almost the same car as the VIII expect the acd and the missing anticorrision protection!

swissEvo, I'm just curious why you are interested in the US version of MR. Is it because of the lack of S-AYC?

Do a dealer search and i guarantee that out of 500+ dealers MSRP is not out of the question if your really interested..

If the demand is not there the MR maybe hard to find but the 05 RS would be my second pic. It's has MR roof and power nothing . If it only had abs optional

I'm going to talk to the dealerahip on Monday to talk about putting a deposit down on an MR. I've never done a preorder on a car before. Is there anything I should know? Also does anyone know if Texas or Maryland have laws about refunds on deposits?
