New to these boards, so apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere. I've looked and haven't seen this topic thread or seen it addressed elsewhere. So again, I apologize if this info is found elsewhere. I'm seriously considering buying an Evo X as a weekend car (probably no more than 7,000-8,000 miles a year, no "racing", although I do have a habit of engaging in "spirited driving" but nothing too crazy) and am trying to get a sense of what my maintenance and operating costs will be. I ask because I seem to see all kinds of differing figures and opinions on this. Everything from "Oh, your service interval will be every 5,000 miles and that's it" to figures that predict some amazing upkeep numbers that make some people's mortgages look tame. The problem is that nobody seems to do anything to explain what is the basis for their figures. Hence, it's hard for me to figure out whether their figures would really apply to me. Any insight folks can offer is very, very welcome.
