Please have a bit about the safety regulations in there too.

I look forward to your post!
Sorry, I didn't notice your asinine attempt at sarcasm until now. Before I school you in business can you point me to the regulation governing the crash retest when you change car seats?

Do you think that Mitsubishi is keeping a tight secret on a replacement and giving us the run around to surprise us with another version Evo with an electric/hybrid power train? This rumor has been going around for almost five years. Has other automakers for other models say there won't be a replacement and boom what do you know, there's a replacement? I mean the North American Chief isn't the main guy at Mitsubishi and may not know all the facts from the top of the chain. I bet that Miev Evolution wasn't made just to run Pikes Peak but maybe to use that for development on other performance models ie a newer Lancer Evolution but "in a different direction" from what have been hearing for years. Does anyone else feel me on this that there still might be something of an Evo replacement besides that stupid looking suv?

That is what I figured.

I'm still all ears if you want to educate us about the economic and business reasons that Mitsubishi chose to not include Recaros on the 2015 Mitsubishi Evolution.

School is in session, please teach the class.

Just as I figured, talking crap with nothing to support it. What will you say if the SAM model have different seats that the current model?

Then why do 2015 Nismo 370z's come with Recaro Sportsters? Not a single airbag in them.

The same reason that 2015 Fiesta ST, Focus ST, Mustangs, GTRs, etc come with Recaros. They have been tested and passed the new US regulations. Anyway, who said anything about airbags? The 2008-2014 Evo Recaros have airbags as well.

btw, the Juke RS/Nismo 370z Recaros have airbags. It's the bulky side part on the outside of each seat.





If they aren't there, they aren't OEM recaros. The aftermarket Sportsters do not have them.

How am I talking crap? I am not at all.

I thought you where going to school us. I keep hearing about that from you and nonsense from other people but nothing else.

It really is just internet bitching at this point. How about a cold hard fact again for you guys.

The USDM 2015 Evo has no Recaros. Seriously, it doesn't. The USDM 2003-2006 and 2008-2014 Evos have Recaros. Seriously, they do.

Either you live with that fact or you just keep internet bitching. The choice is yours.

Call the Wahhhhhhhhhmbulance or just wake up tomorrow and live your life moving forward.

I'm just trying to imagine Mistu's car lineup in the u.s without the EVO. Without the EVO, Mitsubishi's car lineup will be a modern day version of Daewoo. Why are they letting their car division go to crap?

I'd hate to be a product rep for mitsu right now. Why don't they just come out and say that their cars will be lifeless, performance-less appliances from now until the foreseeable future.

What the dickens does your rant have to do with pointing us to the regulations that states we must crash test if we change seats?
