    I also like the body of my 98 Talon. Fortunately the owner before me must have been wanting to mod it a bit appearance-wise, because the front eagle badge is gone. About the only thing I'm not sure of the rear spoiler.. looks funky, but then, that's probably part of the appeal.

    I'll also echo a statement here about the number of talons vs the number of eclipse... here in Tulsa, the Talon is DEFINATELY a minority and I do get alot of looks when I'm cruising around... of course, they could be thinking "what is that dork doing with that CRAP car" but who knows. I like it and that's all that counts :).

    My vote: Talon all the way.. but DANG if the new Eclipse don't just look sweet...

    In a nutshell, this discussion is somewhat redundant. Who cares if you bang a blonde, a brunette, or a redhead as long as you get some. Same with DSM's. Pick the 'blonde', 'brunette', or 'redhead' (whichever you prefer), and go bang the snot out of it.

    Actually... i hate to revive this damn thread but, there is a major difference in the cars. Doesn't matter what Company decided to put their name on it, it matters if you have a 6/4.

    That, sir, is totally wrong. Every DSM made rolled off the same assembly line in Normal, IL. Doesn't matter if it was Eclipse, Talon, Laser... it was put together by the same people.


    To sum it up: Your a moron.

    :p

    i know this is a flame but, man, i have to. kanga07, you don't even have a car!! what right do you have to judge eclipses over talons over lasers? especially since you don't know anything about them, where they are made, etc.
    buy a dsm (an eclipse if you prefer), learn a little, then come back.

    I love my Laser even if it does have a modded 93 talon front bumper! I my have the bastard child of them all but she is fast and I think she is beautiful. Its all a matter of opinion. Talons, Eclipse, and Laser are the same basic platform. The engine, driveline, and basic body are the same. SO it doesn't mean your car is faster or better just because you have a Talon or Eclipse. My car runs 13.65 @ 109.3 in the quarter with no launch, no 2nd gear, 15psi with a stock 14b, blowing the lower intercooler pipe at the 1/8 mile mark when shift into fifth gear, and hasn't been tuned since I put the motor in. I have under $3000 into the car including what I paid for it. So how lame is a Laser now. Man I hate people who talk crap about the Laser.

    Uhm. Not to be picky but its You're a moron. "Your" is possessive, "you're" is a contraction of 'you' and 'are'.

    All DSMs are equally lame regardless of the badging.

    The only reason the Eclipse holds its value better is that it is the closest of the bunch to being an "import, y0". If you are part of the "import scene" why would you want an "Eagle" or a "Plymouth"? Of course I don't care one way or the other, I got mine because it was cheap and fast, the "import crowd" can suck on my nut. The sadest part is there was no Eclipse in Japan so the people that think they are being all "Japan cool" are driving around in a car that most Japanese people haven't seen or heard of. Having an Eclipse and being part of the "import crowd" is similar to being part of that crowd with a Neon or Focus.

    Oh, and if you think DSMs are cool and trendy you make me want to vomit.

    This one says for the Talon: Min. Curb Weight: 2767 lbs

    This one says for the Eclipse: Min. Curb Weight: 2729 lbs

    According to your own links, the Talon is heavier than the eclipse. Now granted those the are non-turbo versions but since the drivetrain is identical, then an AWD Talon should be heavier than an Eclipse. Which is completely opposite.

    wow. to me it seems like eclipses are only driven by 16 year old cheerleaders. (untrue)

    who cares how it seems? the question to this topic asked for FACTUAL differences, not how it SEEMS to you.

    Well...it goes like this:

    Eclipse is NOT available in Canada!!!! So even if we want to get one, we gotta haul our Canadian a$$ down to the States and pay #@%#@%#@%#@%ing crazy exchange rates and ridiculous taxes (cause our CDN $$$ is crap rite now) to get a car up here.

    I'm pretty sick of people converting their Talons to Eclipse look-a-likes!
    And what's up wit those people who have a Talon rear-end and Eclipse front-end...it looks pretty sad....

    If you have a Talon - BE PROUD
    Don't TRY to look like an Eclipse.

    Ok fact Talon seats have less cushion, and less adjustable.
    FAct Talon has either sun roof or moon roof. Eclipse has both motorize.
    While the Talon is manual.

    And some other stuff as well thats just to name a couple.
