    Lancer Evolution VIII MR4
    Lancer Evolution VIII MR uses slick-response Bilstein shocks for improved handling. The aluminum roof panel and other reductions in body weight have lowered the center of gravity to realize more natural roll characteristics. Detail improvements have also been made to Mitsubishi’s own electronic all-wheel drive, to the ACD 5 + Super AYC 6 traction control and to the Sports ABS systems. The Lancer Evolution VIII on display at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show takes the MR designation traditionally reserved for Mitsubishi Motors high-performance models and used first on the Galant GTO.

    if it were available here i can't see how i would justify spending 50k on a mitsu!!! (no offence to you mitsu people) but when you get in the 50k price range you can get quite a few nice cars.

    Well, Subaru is selling every STi they can get their hands on for about that price, so it can't be that tough.

    I do agree though, and thus the reason I don't drive an STi...

    rsx isn't 35k

    starts at 25k-31k

    and you can't get bmw/benz for that price either


    also redshift i agree on the sti part, myself you are spending tons of money on a subaru/mitsu (i'm sure they are very nice cars) but 50k???? ouch, what is out there for 50k anyways??

    A well equipped RX-8 will run you pretty damn close to 50K :D
