so im going to mitsubishi tommorrow

For the new eclipses. A black one, 4cyl or v6, ehh guess it dont matter too much yet. Maybe ill go with v6 since im always saying "Only upgrade".

Anyone know of anything wrong with them mechanically like "dent the door, itll unlock crap?" or redline and itll make your horn honk?

This dealership is really nice, kia/mitsubishi dealership and are very friendly to my parents who own kias. So i expect to get real close or even invoice for the eclipse. And hopefully 16 grand at least for my 2006 mazda3 S, 2.3 with 8000 miles. It has a lip kit, but I dont expect them to gimme much for it.

What you guys think? (I know styling is subject for individuals own opinions, i think they are tight tho in person) I wont fix this up much either. Lambo doors will actually be normal on the car if done, exhaust would be nice but not needed, and black or so rims~~ simple stuff since they look pretty exotic already. and a lip

Re: so im going to mitsubishi tommorrow

Only drive in straight lines?

Its like rollin a old caddy in the corners...

NE way i was in love with this car for about 2 months, almost traded my 04Mz3 in for it, but wanted to wait a few more months and then found out the MS3 was coming soon.

Nice looking ride, and the ladies like it, im not sure im saying its a girls car or that girls like it....

Get the v6 or you will dread every day you drive it, its a PIG per say and the i4 will probably lick balls the whole time you drive it

Re: so im going to mitsubishi tommorrow

haha

actually my mom told me to buy the car initially before the mazda3, and i told her
no mom, its a girls car, plus insurance is a little higher.


well, maybe I should listen to my mom more lol, shes usually right. haha

the i4 only has 162hp and 162 torque. 2 more than us, but the car might be heavier.
idk too much tho, like I want the v6 just so i can punch it if i want to and really move.

yesterday some kid was driving a firebird tomahawk and kept smiling while driving it, (it mightve been his dads), but at stop lights, he would gooooo.

Re: so im going to mitsubishi tommorrow

The v6 wont keep up with a firebird, and the v6 plows into options you have to buy, gets you close to $30k

Well i did the website for fun
http://www.mitsubishicars.com/MMNA/j...d.do?loc=en-us

Seems they have a $2000 rebate or something right now so its like $27k got a GT with Aero package
I dont know what your doing... i4 or v6 and base or loaded

I really need you to drive one around first, drive the i4 and see how you like it, as most owner devote their time/$$$ to suspension, this happened to a friend and he got fed up with the car because of rattle and grandma cornering and got a G35 instead.

Its really about the person though, if you like it enough its going to be a fun ride

Tell me more on your options and price limit?
