i think the car is "ok" at best.<br>not too enthusiastic about it.<p>for something so popular, it should have more than 370hp

that article is WAY old....<p>i have quite a bit of EVOLVE's stuff on my car. I love it. After having the car stock vs. modified - I wouldn't have the R stock.<p>no offense to the guys here who have stock R's...but for a guy lke me...a stock R would BLOW. it would be TOO slow, would handle POORLY...and look too plain.<p>when I bought my R it was with plans to mod it into something like the blue car, which is what I did. <p>the R is a nice sedan in stock form, but it's NOT spoty enough for me. If I woke up tomorrow, and someone had removed all my parts, and I was told that i had to drive my R STOCK from then on - I'd sell it. I'd be depressed driving a stock R. might was well get a 325 or a 330<p>sorry to sound so negative on the car stock...but the mods just bring the car to life...so much so that I'd hate to drive a stock R again.
