just querying all those who already own an Evo here in MLOC. would ya advice someone who juz have a normal wira to buy an Evo? what car(s) did you drive prior to owning your Evos. i'm contemplating (thinking of trading in my ol wira for something else - civic FD2, evo? etc), but some of my thoughts:
- would the HP jump be too much to handle (? so far ony old wira mah. lite mods je)
- don't really know much on car technical stuff (i often read you guys posting stuff in the engine n performance section, and the mods u do on ur rides, and i can't really grasp as many stuff as would luv to due to lack of knowledge arhghg)

would it be better for me to juz jump into buyin an evo and learn from there-on, or would it be better for me to buy somethin else first and learnlearnlearn till pandai siket.

im juz contemplating. and oh ya, what car did u drive b4 buyin ur Evos? Tq!

panarol.. if u already have your sights set on an evo.. go for it..
-as for the jump in bhp.. doesnt matter if ur driving a kancil or an evo.. always drive within ur limits and the car's capabilities.. if u get an evo, slowly learn the car's capabilities and characteristics..
-as for technical knowledge, the web has tons of information u can read up on.. take ur time, nobody is expected to be an expert overnight..

as for what ive driven:
putra-> satria r3-> impreza sti-> golf gti-> evo x

Hello panaroL,

Option in your hand. From my point of view, E is a good ride.
Maintainance wise kinda higher but if you don't have itchy hands everything will be fine.

HP jumping: no la... but feel the G when over taking.
technical stuff: learn after you get the ride... since in MLOC/ZTH we could ask anything at anytime. If you in peninsular, you can get helps easily + reputable workshop.

if not mistaken there is a MLOC member get the E from Russian lucky draw...
maybe you could find him & to guide u for any other contest.... :itsme:

my ride: Lorry to E (big different oooo) :rofl:
