            the evo is a totally different car mate but like others said they are a totally different price range, they might be cheap enough to buy but thats where it ends. pretty much everything on an evo is expensive. my mate bought an evo 8 fq320 MR and it was mapped, etc was about 400bhp and even cars with more power than it could not keep up, they are animals lol but it cost him alot in fuel etc as he works for garge whifbitz (jap tuning comapny) so he done all servicing etc himself but he still ended up selling it due to fuel consumption etc.
            BUT i was in c_bates car when we came round an evo IX fq 360

              gotta be the evo, but you have to think about running costs

                My other half has a evo 5, my mum used to have a 4 and my mate owned the 9 and now the 10

                They can be mega unreliable, and unlike the corsa - there not cheap to fix. For example in the last week the 5 has clocked up £700 in repairs (repairs that are unrelated to the modifications on it). My other friend had his Evo 8 serviced last week (standard service) and walked out of mitsibishi £800 worse off. Just like other 'performance' jap cars, i think you need to have £1k minimum put away 'just in case' and u have to ask yourself when buying one 'can i really afford that?'

                And another thing to consider - evos ONLY run on Vpower or BP Ultimate, also you need to ideally replace all four tyres at the same time (and you DONT want to get budgets), minimum of £350 (and thats for toyos on a 'good deal')

                  Very good surrgestions and comments nd with much thought and consideration to running costs,im please to inform all i will be staying with my rss corsa vxr as the cost of tax is 480ish per year.kayla had a good point to four tyres at once are expensive at once even with my contacts in that trade( national tyre,and woodside) then fuel is 87 ish on what i religousliy use vpower. So the story continues with the corsa lol appreciate all comments cheers.

                        if you can afford a evo get one no contest, the running costs are high if used as a daily driver....

                          We originally sourced them on eBay from a tyre fitters in Reading, depends what size your running, the 5 is on 225 40 18s Toyo proxis and we buy from Top Gear Tyres in reading, you can buy for £250 a pair but if u buy 4 at a time they do a good deal.

                          I'm pleased your sticking with the Corsa Chris, the evo is being sold this week - fantastic car but it's his daily drive and due to having the supra as well it's simply not worth the bottomless pit of money

                            225/40 R18's is what the civics come with as standard but mine has the optional 19's pushing me to 225/35 R19.

                            They look to nice to drop to the 18's lol.

                            I will see if I can find that place as I want some Yokohama Advan Neova AD08's
                            Possibly the most beautiful tyre ever.

                            thank you
