And when I say this I'm talking about DD. I know it doesnt come with a radio but its okay cuz i can just put one in. I dont really want a wing which it doesnt have. What i do what though is HID's.

I know at south coast mitsu the 06 RS goes for liek 26999 or something. they wanna sell me a 05 VIII GSR with 19k miles for 25 OTD. I honestly think they can do better than that. Or buy the 06 RS from them but its used, has like 5k miles on the car...used for test drives.

you can throw whatever you want onto your car.

HIDs are easy...that's like a $250-400 easy fix.

no power locks or windows if you're ok with that also. *You can get an aftermarket HID kit if you want, they're pretty decent.

if you want something comfortable dont even think about the RS, however if you want something raw and ready to go, then by all means flow with it. :-)

Is an RS really worth buying for a daily driver?
Abso-fuckin'-lutely!
Get the new one if you can. Those 5K miles on the used one might have been ruff.

Well most evo owners that i know pushes their cars hard on the track.

I looked around for sometime and almost bought an RS but, ended up buying a new IX, and I very happy with it. If your going to track the shyt out of it then, go with the RS. If your going to drive it as a daily from time to time then go with a IX. Whatever you get, get it >>NEW<<
just my 2 cents

I thought about an RS but have to admit, I wanted the ABS which does not come with the RS.

05 GSR for 25k otd? that's quite a deal considering the depreciation of evos are pretty nice

if you can live with no power windows, no remote lock, no wing, no radio, go for the RS.

but then... keep in mine that evo is very expensive to maintain

bro the RS is not really bad if you really do think about it. i have an RS and i completely love the damned thing. the only thing that your missing the h.i.d which you can get for 300 bucks shipped, the other thing would be power windows. that my friend you have to keep your eyes posted for people posting part outs or car that have been damaged except for the doors....like me!. and the finaly the radio.... go to a stereo shop easy. other than that you finally have a gsr in a way. thats what i have

I originally set my eyes on a Rally Red RS. Figured that I would keep my old car and use that for DD purposes and the RS for track/weekend fun duties. Didn't happen so I have the MR... If I had a choice now, I'd go with the GSR SE.. All the creature comforts that lack in the RS make me look bad especially since I work in Beverly Hills :(

i have no issue w/ a lack of powerlocks since i know down the road its less things to break and better for weight lose. my only grip was the lack of colors (i wanted blue or black!)

One thing annoying about it is the lack of a mirror on the sun visor thingie. Other than that, it's pretty doable for a DD, I've had mine for bout 2.5 years.

i think the RS is good for a track car just gut it out and stuff but for DD i dont think so. plus if it was used for test drives just think about how u test drove ur first evo lol. i kno how i did haha

Bottom Line, the RS is just a GSR without some luxuries.

Depends on what you want...* If you want a little bit more comfortable ride, you need to get the MR.

yeah dood an rs is cool.... until a girl smiles at you and tells you to roll the window down, and you stumble across the passenger seat to start winding hahaha

I wouldnt get an rs, the gsr is like 1000-1500 more i believe, and if you add up a radio, power locks, windows, wing, painted handles and mirrors etc.... its worth it for gsr

Yeah, GSR is the best buy! ^ But if you don't care, get an RS to save money.

RS is faster than an GSR :-P

But GSR is probably a better buy, unless you don't care about roll-up windows wtc.
