Thats the reason I went with the Evo over the Z a year ago. Now think what could be done to the Z if I hadn't.

I'm not saying the Evo is a bad car... Or that the 350Z is better. I just think Mitsu has some thing to work out.

Your EVo was nice..no doubt, but I'd rather the Z anytime.
Everyone speaks greatly of the Z..

Ah traded the Evo but I can understand why when it keeps breaking. 350Z is pretty sick.

Thanks... I'm liking the Z much more than the Evo now. Sometime wish I kept the Civic cause that sucker would've been paid off. Than I would've had a Civic & Z or Evo.

vtecsohc02, keep an eye on your tires. There were suspension issues that caused the front tires (and sometimes the rear ones) to wear prematurely (5-9K miles). I used to have a G35 coupe that had the same problem. It got so expensive that I had to abandon ship and get my 'vic. I'm still spinning from the pain (financially and emotionally). My sister has an '04 Z and she had the same problems. Just keep a careful eye on your alignment, toe, camber, all the good stuff. Nice ride btw.

Thanks... I have already heard about that. As a matter of fact before I even bought the car. Had a full alignment done about 2-3 weeks after buying it.

i would never take an evo over a Z. The evo, and STi, is the epitome of a Fast & the Furious car for the past few years.

The Z is like a sports car than anyone can drive, from a 16 year old to a 90 year old, and still enjoy it the same.

And why couldnt you drive a EVO or a STI from 16 years old to 90 years old....


your comparing the EVO and STI to F&F... IM sure once poeple saw the movie they had to have a EVO or a STI....I guess you havent seen the link to F&F3..where there were Z's...please explain how a 16 yo is going to enjoy the Z the same as a 90 yo???? and wouldnt a EVO or STI.


Id rather have a EVO or a Talon....then a Z...i personal think a EVO will out handle a Z anyday...

because the evo and sti are rice rockets. nothing else. admit it.
the Z is more refined sports car.

I doubt a 90 year old guy would love to have a ~300hp 4 cylinder turbo. loud, harder ride, cheaper interior, ricey exterior, etc.


The Z has a little more comfort, little more luxury, but still sporty. I can seriously see a 90 year old guy in a Z really enjoying it.


And when F&F3 comes out and a ton of people who make $15,000 a year at McDonalds get used 350Z's and rice them out, they will get old too.

I would rather have catwoman make me walk funny, like she does to _viper_, than be seen with an evo or sti every day.

ok yeah the Z has more refined interior, but the EVO has very a nice interior...My boy has a EVO with the Leather Recaros....i think it looks sweet...

a EVO/STI is a rice rocket.....dont think its ricey at all...you need to have money to buy any of these cars...including the Z...plus i dont see any of them riced out...

the poeple around here have them and they are all modded and have alot of HP...so i dont see any rice ones...i mean i like the Z but i would never buy one...

the only thing i wish is that i could buy a different car then what i got now...i have 45k a year...but no clue what i want..i would like a EVO but its not worth it to pay alot of money for a car like that at this point in my life....i woul dlike a rsx-s...kinda of sick of this civic thing...i want osmething where i can feel the power.
