The very aggressive frot end.

The very roomy interior.

Very few 9g lancers on the road ( where I live at)

Everyone thinks my car is an EVO ( but it's not)

Funniest thing happened while checking out Surfer's the other night. Stopped in at a servo to wash the windscreen (left the car on) and started with the squeegy and the wipers started flapping furiously in the air - hilarious :)

Haha, should've read your owners manual, there is a safety warning about that lol :)


Not the #1 thing, but here is why I love the sportback:

It's weird. After driving a piece of s*** Excel for 3 years, the thing i like most is that i always forget i'm in 4th. The engine and cabin are just so quite that i can't hear my revs. Peaceful and comfortable on the inside... I ain't scared of you attitude on the outside.

Bluetooth Audio Delay + Engine noise in the cabin.

Postby Douglas Bailey » Tue Apr 10, 2012 12:24 pm

It looks like people switched to things they DO like. Here are two things I don't like about my VR MY12.

There is an approx. 2 second delay in the Bluetooth streaming.
If I'm sitting in the car and watching video on my iPhone/iPad and I send the audio though the radio, I see mouths moving on the screen way too long before I hear the audio.
Also, if I'm listening to an audiobook or podcast and want to pause it at the end of a sentance. Good luck. I'd have to know where the end of the sentance was going to be two seconds in advance. Or when I restart I have to jump back so I don't come in half way though a sentance.

I tested for Bluetooth delays in other brands and found these don't have a delay: Toyotal Corolla Levin ZR / Hyunday i30, Accent, Elantra, Veloster / KIA Rio, Cerato.

But a Mazda3 Maxx Sport (which appears to have the same radio gear as my Lancer) had a 1 sec delay and a Honda Civic Sport had near 3 seconds dealy.

PS: The Hyundai Accent and Elantra had NO way to pause the audio from the radio, even switching source or turning off the head unit didn't pause the bluetooth stream. At least in the Lancer I can press 5 to pause and 6 to play.

Time for a new headunit.

And some dampening work to stop so much engine noise coming into the cabin.

Thanks for a place to vent. ;)

My favourite thing about my lancer is that no matter how much I abuse the her, she is still as quick and reliable

it is great... on everything...

i dont really have 1 great thing but rather many... It always starts first time everytime no matter the condition or weather. It is a comfortable ride, the seats a good and the pedals (manual) are great, not to mention the clutch feels like you're pressing a pillow. It looks great no matter how dirty it as, and the best part is no matter how my driving style im never outta pocket for fuel :)

To add - the one thing I couldn't live without - Cruise Control

I live with it on, no worrying about what speed I'm going, and particularly with the CVT it is awesome.......

The steering wheel on my VR is worn around the cruise control controls :lol:
