I drove 2003 Eclipse GT. the car is a killer.
Few observations
1) The reduced the Horsepower by whooping 40Bhp. The one i had was at 200bhp
2) back to the old design of 2003 with a middle section colored differntly to
3) Good its now with ABS

The GT version is good. But the GS is slightly 'all show and no go'. It has the looks but not the power.

They really need to inject some life into the Eclipse, maybe use the EVO drivetrain under the body of a sleek eclipse.
Weather you like it or not, and as famous as the EVO is, you're(Mitsubishi) going to lose a sizable portion of your clientele when your fastest car is a sedan.

PS: Thanks for sharing!

FWD for a car like this is a strict no no. Mitsubishi needs to give it AWD or atleast RWD.
