    Some pics of the Evo

    After a lot of messing about by the dealer (who are useless) I finally picked the Evo up at half 5 on friday. Absolutely thrilled to bits with it. Acceleration is superb, as is the handling, I love the fact the car is pretty basic inside, and the noise you get from the turbo and the whine fromthe transfer box just produces a big grin. Fuel wise the car is nowhere ner as bad as people made it out to be, it managed over 200miles with it still showing 1/4 of a tank left (although in reality there was probably less),its actually doing better than the SRiT did which only got 220miles before being empty. Spent Saturday cleaning it (the garage want a foot put up the valeters arse), and the only mod so far being to remove the Ralliart carbon wing mirrors (not for me), and to fit an agila roof ariel, although theres plenty more in the pipeline.

    Haha did you see a reims blue evo 6 for sale up there when you were up? i know what you mean my dad had lots of trouble with western. pretty much just slackers and cut too many corners which is what you cannot do with cars liek this.

    his front bumper was botched on and had been fibreglassed together inside liek it had been broken, which they never told him.

    Yeah I seen that one , in soo much need of a polish it was unreal. I love the FQ400 they have in the showroom. they hd a week to get my car ready and made an arse of it, it still has to go bck in to get 2 jobs carried out which they had plenty time to do beforehand...they had a FQ300 sat next to mines on the lot which I looked at which had a very rough front end.
