    no news bout your wira E3 yet ah bro? hope to hear from u soon...wah got caldina summore....
    from my point of view, i will definately choose Evo8MR, cos both s203 & e8MR are limited edition cars.....but E8MR maintanance should be much more cheaper.........

    E8MR - lotsa performance parts in the market, cheaper maintanance,

    S203 - lotsa performance parts also, but not many compared to E8MR, parts could be sourced from SG, but then again, its abit pricey. maintainance wise, of course there are a few impreza tuners in sunway. if specialist have to be done @ Subaru motor image @ federal highway.

    1) Maintenance wise :hmmmm:

    basic maintenance n fluids pricing is the same, just some parts the labour charges are higher due to the difficulty.

    2) I'll be using either one stock till die :biggrin: (only minor mods eg: exhaust, boost controller etc etc)

    when u buy car, u will say this. but u wil change ur minds after that. trust me :)

    3) Parts? (from what i've heard, evo has so many aftermarket and parts)

    both evo n scobby got alot aftermarket n ori parts for sales. just modification cost for scooby is higher.

    i.e, u can repalce metal head gasket on evo easily but for scooby, its not..engine kena keluar :)

    4) Both of the car i loike very much.....:biggrin:

    S203 is special edition wit 320hp...interior, exterior and suspension all special. the engine also balanced d. its a good car if u r opt for minor mods. the recaro kevlar seats are so rare and 2nd hand value for that seats is bout rm2x,xxx. :)

    jack up the car, there are so many pink color stuffs installed :)

    5) Reliable workshop for both type car?:hmmmm:

    if just like ur Q2 (minor mods)...most of the mech oso can do

    if daily drive and easy to maintain, i suggest Altezza RS200 with 6speed. Else Mr2 is a nice car and not to mention very fun to drive due to engine layout design.
