Hi MLOC :D , my first thread here ... I've got some confession to make here hehe :P ... Currently am driving the latest lancer GT (Yes i am one of the lucky one), am having good time with this baby, since my secondary days i am in love of Evo 7 which introduced during 2001. If i am going to get an Evo, the E7 definitely be my choice but my question is, even after i start working in 2011, and after 5 years of working, i shud be able to get an evo, the question is, is it advisable to get the E7 during 2016 ? The world might be gone by that time (yeah 2012 !!) hehehe, but Evo 7 apparently is the Evo i think is the best ... So owners of Lancer Evolution, is it worthwhile to get it during that estimated period ??

Ahh, driver with such passion is always nice, but in a way to find a good condition evo 7 after that many years maybe elusive; not saying its impossible, but usually a lot of maintenance would be required for wear and tear parts, depending on the previous owners habits too, some may really have took it with all the "driving" done. From the beginning, myself also been having the same thoughts in keep this car for long. Unfortuntely with factors due to work travel requirements and being away from home much longer; car has also equally aged plus all the other factors and spare parts sourcing, sadly i had to give it up and it has become my ex love.
Nonetheless, this is really a good car to have, especially the prowess of 4WD cornering machine !! Thumbs up for your passion towards evo 7 :)

Thx DDgreystar san :) , anyway Evo 7 to Evo 9 they have identical outlook, just that Evo 8 and Evo 9 has super AYC and better suspension ... So to compare with evo 7 to evo 9, would be evo 9 better in terms of cornering ability ?? I found out that evo 7 is quite drift happy in habit when watching best motoring, evo 9 is seems to be very stable due to its for different market segment, i knew the evo 9 was designed to match European roads and it is test drove at Nurburging circuit ... As for evo 7, it is designed based on the winding roads in japan, aka touge :P hehe

by 2016,evo7 is already 15 years old. as some taikor mentioned, you will need quite some effort and $$$ to do up the car to match its previous performance.

as now the price is so attractive and the loan facility still available (below 10 years)...just go for it. many good units on sale in here and other sites. grab it.

i owned Evo7 for 2.5 years and its indeed a great car to drive. u can touge, track, gra or even gymkhana.....hahahaaa....but end of the day..repair cost will burn some holes in yr pocket..unless u have a deep pocket....then no prob.

as i always mentioned, get a GOOD MECHANIC.....then you will lives happily with yr evo....me due to some reasons...have to let go my ride....miss it so much now but life goes on...cheers buddy.

hope u decide and make up yr mind for a machine of yr dream...go for it...reality always start from a dream!....own it! no regrets its a great car...evo7,8,9.....:biggrin:

I believed the Lancer GT is a family owned car, that is why he has not much of a chance to own an Evo eventho Lancer GT is more expensive than Evo 7 at this point of time.

I love Evo7 too, prolly it's squarish look which is not very handsome looking that attracted me.

Mitevo7, by 2016, I belived the price of Evo7 will be hovering around 50K'ish (I supposed comparing to Evo3 now). If you really love one, you wudn't mind buying one and 'REBUILDING" it from scratch. Which means you literally strip the car down to the frame, weld, fix, paint and reassemble everything and address any minor issues including wirings and plastic clips. That will set you another Rm50K I supposed, so you will get a brand new Evo7 @ 2016. (well, if 2012 doesn't happen, hehehehe...)

That is if the Lancer is cash... U should consider an unregister evo 7 earlier before buying the Lance GT. There are several unregistered units ( year 2004) on sale, which i belive, cost RM 15-20K more than lancer GT, intrest wise should be same or a bit higher. Wear and tear at minimum side. Just my 2 cents....

wah, Sujaar and H22C ==> U poison kaw-kaw laa ... :rofl: Mitevo7: u want get Evo6? hehehehe *my turn to poison* ... :rofl:

King: Dun laa bedek until say u dream your entire life laaa ... evo that time where got laaa ... have is maybe AE86 and Datsun 120Y laa ... or the Fiat .. If in school, then think about upgrade from bicycle to kap-chais only laa ...:rofl::thefinger:..

Then last time when just start working only dream want to get the Mitsu GTO 3000cc without the pop up front headlights version ... hahaha .. nowadays when see that car on the road and well taken care off, reminds me of those times when working hard to achieve that dream. When the time come to buy, other car in the market (like the Evo6, 6.5 and 7 and the R34). last 2,, too expensive for me (no budget). then settle for the Evo6 becos that time 6.5 can't find used in the market ... hahaa

Turbo car is fun and when the turbo kicks in, the g-force pressing your body down to the car seat is priceless. Very very addictive. Hehehe...

Yeah bro, nothing is free in this world. Mother nature is very fair. To have the 'priceless experience', there's a price to pay. :)
