Typically I have found that almost all cars look better to me in person. However, today I went to look at an Evo X, and I wasn't impressed. I wasn't unimpressed, it was just kind of a neutral feeling. The X didn't give me that "gotta have it" feeling that I remember the first time I saw my IX MR. I don't ever remember being so excited at the dealership as when I bought my IX. Not even my S2000 measured up.
To be honest, it is probably good that I wasn't blown away like I was with the IX or I would be at the dealer tomorrow with my IX and a checkbook.
