I hate evo's with a passion. It's a cell phone with turbos.

I don't like the EVO drivers...but EVO with a nice track set up (suspension, brakes, tires)...it's a real lap timer killer!

A friend has an EVO 7 RS...it has around 350hp but it weights around 1000 kg and grips like a boss! He's a good driver and at Imola race track he brakes the GT3's...and that's why I hate him ...kidding...

Not a fan of Evo's. Never have been. Most of the drivers are under 25 year old adult males that think they are in the movie fast and furious. Pathetic.

I like the wheels though.

Speaking as a former Evo VIII owner, most of the kids are racer-douches. But a great adult community and the 4G63 was a ton of fun to mod.

Agreed. My heart slightly dropped when I though there is another e9x with this color.

Former Evo X owner, I love my e92 M3. It was fast, but it was meant to only be driven on the track IMO. Day to day the M3 is value for the money. If that makes sense?

But the Evo community is pretty split. Great, knowledgeable guys to douche bag kids who had their parents buy their car.

I was a long time DSM/EVO community member prior to getting my ///M. I owned a couple of DSMs and an EVO. The 4G63 is a gem of a turbo motor because it's so mod friendly and reliable. The stock motors could push 400+whp pretty easily.

The evos definitely give a lot of bang for the buck in terms of performance. They're awesome at the track. They're easy to drive at the limit and the AWD system covers up many driver mistakes. Relatively new drivers can turn some serious lap times in these things.

I knew my days were numbered in the EVO when I started getting irritated by how uncomfortable the car was on the street. The loud exhaust, road noise, and bouncy ride never bothered me before, as they were sacrifices I was willing to make to be fast at the track. I guess it was just age catching up to me. I searched long and hard to find a worthy replacement for my EVO. I didn't want to take a step back in performance, so the ///M was a natural choice. Plus I've always wanted an M3 ever since high school.
