Default Evo X

Nice! a little too sedan looking for me, but damn is that an aggressive front. It looks like it might bite me.

I don't like it. Yet. Maybe because I cant see the FMIC, or because there is "too much going on" (get rid of the scoop?) it looks too much like a show concept car. I think it's going to be like the Eclipse, I didn't like it in the pictures, but out on the road they look good.

Plus, kicking *** and taking names helps.

Front end reminds me of an old school cylon from BSG.

That's because it is...although the production version should look similar.

I still like the evo 3 the best, I think that looks over done like the new eclipse.

I do like the front end though

To busy...tone the front portion down...give it some tail lights, take the center scoop out...show a massive FMIC...some meanier headlights...and a little more styling so it doesn't look like an angry passat...and it would be a beautiful car...

...hum, loose the hood scoop. Get a moonroof. Different rims and spoiler.

All in all it is to busy but hell yeah i'd drive it. Looks like if cars were alive it would eat everything else like a rabid wolf!

So none of you guys saw this car back when it was unveiled at at the Tokyo car show in 2005?: http://seriouswheels.com/top-2005-Mi...-Concept-X.htm

It'll be interesting to see how much they tone it down for production. Given the latest Eclipse...probably won't tone it down much.

I have a picture floating around of that car in black.. it looks badass. To be honest the specs on it seem stank nasty too. I might be a bit biased to the 4g63 too though
