Beastly! Ek9 all day over the rest , evos love to give you big trouble ,but great when running right.

Love my EK9 pal it was the best decision i ever made to get one and I'm glad I did best car I've had for sure

I nearly bought an Evo 8 FQ360 but glad I got the 9 now pal :)
You can work on your ek9 most of the time and lot more fun to drive ,
With the evolution you need lots of money to keep her and very hard to work on imo,
You made the right decision pal.
