I know they have their haters but they have so much character and only take a few mods to really wake them up, best seats I ever sat in, Rebellion tune, Nortech intake, exhaust resonators removed and panoramic roof fully back = very happy me, although when I first bought it, after a 550hp X it felt slow in a straight line, certainly not on a country road, much better now it's Rebellion powered lol it just crackles and pops all the time!

Out of interest, has it been remapped? Only ask as 400hp is easy to get in a MR, and IMO, the power that an evo should have, for me 400hp transforms them. Just another option for you if it is standard

I actually quite like these, but in Matt grey

Don't get why people compare the 2 anyway!? Totally different cars and centuries! I'd never want an Evo for anything more than a toy.

What I don't love personally about any modern car is depreciation

Someone else lost £17k+ on mine, I've been looking at them since Christmas and cars like mine with basically full option spec are rising slightly, so hopefully I'll be ok

My mates a dealer and specializes in the rs3, a45, focus rs ect. He had the limited edt emerald green a45, was lovely and the chassis was awesome, much better than the rs3. The engine in the rs3 is out of this world though...

Anyway he says they are both boring and lose the feel from our old boy evo's. Too much weight, computers and refinement. Guess it depends what your after? I quite fancie more refinement, a great engine note, comfort and a decent stereo....

Must be getting old.

For raw driving experience then evo alllll day

I have been thinking the same recently, been looking at fk2 type R's they seem to be good value right now. Totally see why you like the a45 amg they are stunning cars
