The overall effect is that the rear looks skinny and high--the same reason I don't care for the Lexus IS rear end. It's obvious the designers were trying to match the front headlight pattern, but they were being too logical, and less artistic IMO.
Perfect assessment! My thoughts exactly.

Wow really? I didn't know 335i dropped in price, must not be selling well. Because I can get a EVO X nonMR out the door for 32-33k.

Check out this news piece

...your accelerator pedal breaks clean off. Actually, the owner of this 2008 Mitsubishi EVO X GSR swears he wasn't caning the car excessively hard when his go pedal snapped in two. Posted on the evolutionm.net forums by 'DRAG', these pictures show the severed pedal in question. DRAG claims he was at a stoplight at the time (in front of some STI owners, no less) when he started to leave the light with a little "enthusiasm". As he pushed the GSR's accelerator to the floorboards, the thing's plastic arm broke off clean. Clearly frustrated with his $40,000+ automobile, DRAG called the dealer and waited for some roadside assistance that never came. To make a long story short, Mitsubishi refused to replace the pedal under warranty, but the dealership decided to pick up the tab anyway. Hopefully Mitsubishi doesn't view this case as an isolated incident caused by someone pushing their EVO too hard, because A) you should be able to push an EVO really hard and B) EVOs have been pushed to their limits while being tested by members of the automotive press and we've never heard of anything like this happening. Take a peek at some more pics of the completely cracked pedal in the gallery below. Thanks for the tip, thedriver!

I really like the front aggressive as hell.. but the back is probably one of the ugliest i have seen for a car. If it weren't for the back this would be my new car

Says who? The numbers tell me you're mistaken. Wait till they have V3 for Evo X's, THEN you'll probably be right.
