    Default Evolution VI TME or Evolution IX MR

    My cousin in the states is having a hard time choosing between the two vehicles. He has a friend with a legalized Evolution TME and the dealerships are clearing out the IX's for the X. Which one would you personally get ?

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    ... the V and the VI are my all time favorite Evo's.. however it's hard to argue against a brand new car with warrenty. I want to say Evo VI but my sensible side is saying Evo IX.

    I'd say Evo IX.

    Wow that's an interesting question....you should tell him to pick up this month's copy of Sport Compact Car. That exact topic is the cover story haha.

    According to the article the writer said that in TME Evo was the first car that ever prompted him to ask the owners whether or not he could buy it. He writes that it wasn't as fast, and didn't handle quite as well as the Evo IX...but the overall raw feeling and plain fun factor made it the car of choice for him.

    The TME is sooo sweet, but the Evo IX is newer, more reliable, you don't have to keep it stock (I'd imagine the TME would be kept stock), and you could probably get a good deal on one. I'm actually also looking at Evo IXs this winter because the Xs are coming and I'm applying to several unis up north.

    it depends on what you are looking for
    the TME is a special edition Evo VI

    "special edition Evolution VI was also released in 1999: the Tommi Makinen edition, named after Finnish rally driver Tommi Makinen that had won Mitsubishi four WRC drivers championships. It featured a different front bumper, Red/Black Recaro seats (with embossed T. Makinen logo), 17" ENKEI white wheels, a leather MOMO steering wheel and shift knob, a titanium turbine that spooled up quicker, front upper strut brace, lowered with tarmac stages in mind, a quicker lock to lock and amongst other colours, came in an exclusive shade of red with special decals, replicating Tommi Makinen's rally car's colour scheme. This car is also sometimes referred to as an Evolution 6 or Evolution 6.5."

    Hard choice... I like the looks of the TME better, but I'd probably take an IX due to it just being newer.

    well the TME is made for rally straight up. the IX is not setup the same, its what you think will suit your everyday driving needs i think. i use the TME for every Gran Turismo game haha, but id rather have a IX for daily. IMO.

    I'd rock the TME, but I like awkward daily drivers that aren't as comfortable as the newer IX is, it'd be a pretty sweet ride IMO.

    IX MR, all the way.

    The VI TME was an awesome version to honour TM's and the VI's rally success together. Being the TME version definitely makes it a collector's and rally enthusiast's dreamcar.

    IX MR is newer, more reliable, and has a manufacturer warranty. Either car will whip ass, but for my daily car I'd take the IX MR. Ultimately it's personal preference.

    IX MR: modern-technology, updated & sleeker-styling, warranty.
