Fiesta ST Vs. Lancer Evolution

I am considering these two cars heavily. Has anyone been an Evolution owner? I would be buying a new 2014 model. The ST looks to be a great car, but I am unsure if the HP will be an issue, as I am coming from an e36 m3. I have also never owned a FWD car before, so that is a tradeoff.

Thoughts? The Evolution will be discontinued soon, so this may be a now or never type of decision. Looking for input!

Also, has anyone seen a white fiesta with the molton recaro interior? It is buildable on ford's site, but I have yet to see one in my search.

The only other vehicle I have seen in Molten Orange was a Raptor at the dealership where I bought mine. I parked next to it and my car disappeared! It must have been a 2011, but it looked brand new!
Definitely helps reduce buyers remorse. Good rule if you can stick to it and apparently you can. I know I couldn't after I drove one. Not that I have a bit of remorse over buying it! :)
Mine was from the time I read about it in R&T to the time I put the magazine down....
Took you that long to decide, huh?

Sounds like you were turned off by the salesman's reactions to your questions. I wouldn't get too hung up on that. He won't be the one servicing it anyway. If you decide you want the Lotus, we can't blame you for that! If you decide you want a hot hatch, you know this is the one to have!
