should I get the 05 evo8 w/ sun, sound & leather package that is sitting in the showroom :thumb: or should I wait for the dealer to locate a MR. :confused:
I do love the leather :thumb: and I don't know how big of a deal the six speed and other stuff makes. :confused:
less than a $2000 dollar difference, so price isn't a concern.

I went to the dealer to see about getting an MR ,but they have a black GSR w/ leather that is damn good looking. so I guess what I really want to know is, does the MR have anything other than the six speed that won't get changed when I start customizing and tuning?

Aluminum roof, better suspension, better wheels, and the 6 speed. So, if you are going to replace the wheels and suspension and don't care about the 6 speed then the only thing you will miss out on is the aluminum roof.

is the six speed worth the wait? if it is I can always get aftermarket leather seats.
Too me, if you are set on getting all the expensive stuff anyway (HID's, leather, etc) I would go ahead and get the MR.... that is just my take on the situation. Hell, if I didn't have about 10K invested in my 03 I would sell it and buy an MR :)

Anyone want a 411 wheel HP 03 for 10K over bluebook? :D

I can't find any info that says the six speed is a stronger tranny :confused: , so I'm gonna go for the goodies and get the GSR. Thanks for your input and I'll post some pics when I get it home. :D

You think it's bad now, wait till you do some simple upgardes and tuning.

I went with black w/ leather ricaros
love black, but with this crappy weather it was filthy before I could get her home
as far as the upgrades and tuning, my buddies are opening up a tuner shop so I'll be able to make sure everythings done right and dyno'd
