Wouldn\'t touch an Evo with a barge pole for a regular use machine personally. Service intervals and repair costs are eye watering if anything should go wrong.
At least with the Monaro you\'ve got the most unstressed and long running engine design in the world and it\'s essentially a sled. Not exactly a nice place to be though.
Actually I\'d consider an E39 M5 as well in the same breath as a Monaro. Better car all round but as with any M car, repair costs and servicing aren\'t going to be great.
