If it comes down to money, get an evo 8.
If money is not a problem, get an evo 9.

Evo 9's have Mivec, a bigger stock turbo, and more expensive interior over the 8's.
The 8 and 9 front bumpers are also different, take a look at both and decide which you like better.

MR's are 6 speed while GSR's are 5 speed.
The 6 speed transmissions are known to be weaker than the 5 speed, but if your not tracking it or modding it too much, a 6 speed might be better for a DD.

from my experience, A lot of people that buy 8's usually end up saying they wish they had a 9 because of the Mivec.

Good luck with the search!
