Getting spares for a Integrale Evoluzione can be harder than to get them for a 8v or 16v. And trust me, looking spares is something you will end up doing sooner or later so you better count all the painful work of finding spares for an integrale into your calculation before buying.
Then there's the reliability - there will always be some small things that aren't working, it's just the things you have to live with in an italian car.
Please, you should REALLY consider these things before you buy, because an integrale is expensive to own if you are going to use it a lot, since spares are hard to find and cost a lot.
Then there's all the good parts - the driving experience, the image of the integrale. It is impossible for other people to hate it! It has so much pedigree, so much history behind it that all racers and people who are interested in motor sport will love it, you are going to make their day when you blow past them in 100 mph.
Yet it's not an expensive car to buy, so no one will envy you in the way that you envy a guy who drives a ferrari.
And if you're going to buy one, try to buy an Evoluzione as they just have that little extra over the 8v and 16v. Yes, it costs twice as much, but if you buy a 8v or 16v you will end up craving for the evoluzione anyway.
Either way, a 8v is still absolutely amazing when it comes to the driving experience, there's no major difference in performance, and you will love it to bits. The 8v is a lot more economical in buying price and spares, but the evoluzione still is the big brother delta, the ultimate delta.

Hi Lancia enthusiasts. I am thinking of buying an Evo II. How much of the drive do you lose if you convert to right hand drive and are conversions available.I know this is sacrilege to all. Just asking the question.

Hi everyone, just wondering if anyone can give me any idea of getting parts for a 16v Integrale in Canada. Costs, difficulty, from where, etc?
Thanks, drive fast.

Does anybody know of the possibility of getting an Evo II over to the US. Or maybe one that is here. I've loved this car since I was a little kid and would love to get one, but as it was never offered to the US I'm a bit out of luck. Is there any hope for me with the exception of moving to Europe?
