Picked up the new car today. '98 Eclipse GS-T, w/ 30k miles on the odometer. Got it for $15,000. It feels quite a bit faster then my old 3000GT. I still prefer the looks of the 3000GT, the Eclipse is more for my wife then me. It is fully loaded with the tan leather interior. Here are a few pics.....What do ya think?

So why didn't you get an EVO instead?;)
Looks like someone took good care of your new car, are you planning on modding it?

Wow! Congrats. It's a beautiful looking car. '97's and up look the best in my opinion. If I was buying one thats what I'd go for. But, which is the best year for tunning? Just in case I ever decide to buy one of these gems. :D

I am only living in Europe while I am stationed in Germany. I will be coming back to the states in a few years.


And about the WRX...I am sure it is a great car but definately not for me....!

You know it's really annoying when people chant or cry about crank walk I've had two second gen dsms with over 100k on them with NO CRANK WALK it's a handful of them that have it just like the trannys in teh 3000GT's if you beat on them while ther modded of course your gonan fuck it up if he takes care of it regular matinence and doesn't abuse it beyond it's limits it'll be fine.

Thanks Kaji,

Like I said, it is mainly for my wife to drive so therefor any mods will be moderate. This car will be pretty much babied...

Any of you guys have experience with modifiying these cars for a lot of power? The GSX would be something that I would be interested in for myself when I get back to the US of A. Who knows what I will want by then. Money will not be much of a consideration since I will no longer be in the Air Force :D

wrx are known to have a weak drive train besides that it's an increable ar well with mods it is I've waxed 3 now over 80 mph races...but none the less cool car just I'd take the styling of the dsm+avaibilty of parts+low prices for a vast array of performance parts and ease of installion of these parts to the wrx
