Hi,

I've owned a VI GSR and a VII RS and the VII RS is much better.

I don't think the build is necessarily better but it 'feels' it - the interior is much better and IMO the VI is looking a little long in the tooth now.

You have to remember that each Evo has IMPROVEMENTS over the last one so each revision is better than the previous one, so the VII is definitely the better car.

However, if it's down to looks then buy what you like, after all they are both fantastic motors.

Good luck!

Davy T

"You have to remember that each Evo has IMPROVEMENTS over the last one so each revision is better than the previous one, so the VII is definitely the better" in your opinion

VI every time m8. Still not bettered even now. Get yourself a Mak or an RS. Of course im biased because I have one but there was a thread on here this week asking which is the best evo to date, read it and see how many people vote for a VII.

Edited to add the link to the thread I refered too.

Is that true comparing VIII to VII? Next Evo should be quicker than previous model and it was like that till VII. But VIII seems to be slower than VII in all major tests I heard. It's also significantly heavier. Don't you think VIII is a first step backward in terms of pure performance (traded off for better everyday usability)?

I don't want to start any flame wars - drive VIII myself and think it's marvelous car but consider it a tiny bit less edgy and performance focused as its predecessors.
