Sup X owners

A little exercise in imagination and day dreaming here. If you were to trade in your X and buy/replace with another car, what would you choose?

Alfa Quadrifoglio and 2018 Audi RS5 are tied at the top of my list.


In all honesty i'd have a hard time actually pulling the trigger and getting rid of my Evo as it's really hit the perfect balance between value, performance, and fun.

Picking up one of those two previously mentioned would mean the Mitsubishi would no longer be relegated to daily driver duties and limitations and I could go all out... hmm. maybe that's what will happen.

I don't have a X, but the only thing that would truly replace my Evo is a car far out of my budget. Either a Porsche 911 Turbo S, or a 911 GT3.

The only car in my price range that I'd be interested in replacing my X with is a E92 M3

I think about it from time to time..

Drives: conscientiously

Relevant. I recently crashed my Evo into a light pole and trees like a Subaru driver. The damage appeared so bad that I thought the car was totalled, so I legitimately considered getting a different car (thank God it turned out 4 panels are damaged and chassis is intact ). Here are the cars I looked:


CLA45 AMG


Jaguar F-Type (manual version is significantly more expensive because newer)


Lancer Sportback 5MT


Fiat 124 Spider Lusso 6MT


Subaru WRX 6MT


Dodge Challenger 392 6MT


Infiniti G37 Coupe IPL 6MT


BMW Z4 35i 6MT

Expensive taste here. Lol. Sweet rides.

S2K AP2. I used to have a Laguna Blue and miss the hell outta it. The LB's on the used market carries a premium price I've noticed.

Evo X MR with the touring package. Older model with the heated Recaros. This would be a great daily.

​​​​​​Lotus Elise.
