Re: EVO VIII to X conversion

it would look better if the center bar in the front opening was also blue to break it up, like how it will be on the new evo's.

btw i love the new evo look, looks more grown up now.

They did? They looked boring before. I'm not big on the changes either, but at least the car has a little more attitude now.

Tacky? It looked like **** before the changes...looked like boxy **** after the changes. Tacky? Only if it is partially dry diarrhea.

I don't think the new one looks that bad. I hate the looks of the Lancers I'm always seeing.

Re: EVO VIII to X conversion

I think it looks worse. The best year they had the body style done right for the Evo was last year's model, the Evo 9.

That thing looked aggressive and mean. This one, the headlights look good, but it's got this large open mouth that looks stupid. I just don't care for it.

If I had an Evo X, I would get a body kit immediately to hide the disgusting front. Anybody see the interior? The interior is a HUGE upgrade from the older models.

eh i think everything about the new models is an upgrade. it looks less econo-ish and more grown up, almost with beamer-esque styling.

still rather have a termie though..........

Evo 9 is the best looking IMO. I may be partial to that though...
