This car is one of the limited edition FQ300 being a full UK car and not a import. Supplied by Mitsubishi/Ralliart June 2003 on a 03 plate, this car has a full Ralliart Main Dealer Service History with every single Invoice and Receipt.Ive just paid for a new service (9K service) so next one due 2007.The car has just had all new Brembo pads fitted all round so they will last for another 29,000 miles as per the first set.
The car is finished in Met Black with Black/Blue Unmarked Recaro interior, a non smokers car from new with me being the second owner.Carpet covered with Ralliart overmate and boot mat.Uprated Kenwood CD system.

These were fitted in June and have covered 1200 miles. The wheels are very special and rare and cost £££££.Also just fitted is a Do-Luck Carbon Front Lip Spoiler whick makes the car look extra special.
Other things to note are Cat 1 alarm with remote central locking and tracker and car only run on Shell Optimax. Taxed to 31.05.07 and MOT to 30.06.07. Car garaged from new.

Shame to hear that you are selling your car.
If you need me to post some pics for you or to show you how, give me a shout.
Hi Huss,good to hear from you.
Thanks for the offer re photos. Ive just taken some myself so i will get them up later. Ive put the car on here for sale as im thinking about getting a EVO 9. But still not sure. If someone buys the car then the answer will be yes, but if not then i will stick with it.
Talk to you soon mate
KARL,WHAT ARE YOU DOING :eek:
Hi Denboy, too much sun i think. :confused:
Just testing the water at the moment. I fancy a 9 but ive not made up my mind yet. If i sell the car then i can have alook around and see whats on offer. Saying that i have put p/x considered so i might see what pops up.
Watch this space mate
well,good luck anyway mate,hope you get your nine.all the best :) ;)
good luck with the sale mate! Seems like a mint car.
Some photo's of Karl's spotless car...
do like the look of this :)
Good Luck with the sale karl.......I don't think it will take long to sell, black is such a rare sort after colour & the car looks mint ;)
Thanks Squeakyclean for posting pics up.
Thanks Denboy for your comments.
where about in essex are you im in southend and would like to meet up 2 view your evo if poss as i am currently seeking to buy the right one,
No Probs. Im in WAltham Abbey
Hi, would you be interested in a near straight swap with a 2003 Honda S2000?
You sure you don't want to PX a nice leon Cupra R, Oh soory its yellow.......
Not unless you want to paint it Black/Red or Grey....
Nice car the Leon, i like them a lot.
Dark Blue Mark
Nice try Saxo Boy :D
I may have some wedge to buy this weekend, so adding this to my potential list :)
How many miles?
Was worth a shot Mark :D
Going to have to hold onto the S2000 until Spring 2007 as nobody has shown any interest and I'm not making a 'dreamers' day with a low price when I don't need to :)
not 2 far then will let u no m8
Dark Blue Mark
Do you not have PM allowed or am I missing something?! Im new here :D
Can you let me know what you would accept for the car. I may need something this weekend.
PM me at email@example.com
Up the top for the weekend....
Dark Blue Mark
YHM - need a contact number for you.
Just so you know Mark if you buy this I'll hate you :D
Dark Blue Mark
I would Kenny but the car has a private plate and that delays things by 2 weeks to remove it... Will be a prob for me as I cant wait now mine has gone.
The Timewaster's are at it again.....
Ive taken another deposit again this weekend (The Third One!)
only to have the bloke back out because he cant get the money together?! :confused:
As per the last two deposit's ive taken im keeping it so not all that bad... :)
So the car is back up for sale. Sorry to say i dont really want to take a p/x now as ive seen to many sheads and i want to buy my new car without having to p/x.
Dark Blue Mark
Thats pretty **** Karl :(
Ive hear a lot of this going on lately. I wonder how many of these poeple know what it costs to run / insure an EVO etc and then panic. I would say on the spot sale or nothing. Mind you if you're making a few quid out of timewasters, all the better :D
I would look into getting the plate off and onto retention though, it will make it much easier to sell on the spot :)
Hope its a least 500 quid min deposit....?
Im thinking of putting the plate on retention, as you say the buyer can then drive off.
Maybe i could use some of the three deposits ive collected..... :D
Dark Blue Mark
Let me know if you do Karl, I have a hole burning in my pocket and im driving a Micra :D
I'm surprised this car is still for sale.....if it had been put up for sale in the new year I would have been down like a shot to put down my deposit.....be patient, when someone looks at it who actually knows when they have see a good/genuine Evo it will sell with ease !! ;) ;)
Karl, if I can shift my Leon in time b4 you sell, I will be looking at your car first. I know shame about the yellow....
Thanks Squeaky. As ive said before ive take 3 deposits in total.
The 3 people all had good intentions but all could not get the money together? Strange, that the first thing i would check.
As it stands at the moment im not loosing any sleep and if i dont sell i will run it for a bit longer. Who know you might get it in the new year....
Hi Beetle still no luck with yours. Keep me informed mate and i will catch up with you soon.
As im fed-up (Again..) with all the timewaster's im going to pull the add at the end of the week. Please only contact me if you have money and are looking for a EVO 8 FQ300 in Black.
Car now withdrawn from sale :confused:
EVO 9 FQ360 put on hold :cry:
But im not too upset as Vortex and Induction Kit ordered :cool:
Thinking of possible engine upgrades for early next year.
Watch this space
Thanks for the PM's. Sorry ive not been in contact as ive been away.
Yes i will consider offers on the car but please dont take the P**s.
Ive just fitted a carbon vortex genarator but have not throught any more re engine mods as ive been too busy, so its still as standard.
Over to you....
Dark Blue Mark
Give me the wheels Karl :)
Dont think ive got a big enough envelope mate :crackup:
Catch you soon
Hi All, Ive just Pmed all emails. Sorry its taken a while as my email/internet has been down since tuesday.
Anyway, the car is still for sale as the deposit cheque has bounced. Bit of a shame as this was a second part deposit from the bloke who left me some money a while back!
Hope that clears things up.
PS Vortex now fitted and looks :cool:
Hi All, just back from Germany so sorry its taken a while to Pm all of you.
The answer to all your questions is the car is still for sale.
I have no problems with the people who have left deposits as they cant get loans, insurance etc, and i have told them all to go away ;)
Looking at the price i have decided to drop to £15,750 and yes i will haggle and yes i would consider a P/X. But i will not give the car away and im not interested in pricey P/X's.
Hope that brings you all up to date.
Karl, I'm still holding onto a nice Yellow Leon Cupra R. If you dont look at the colour its a nice car, as I know you don't like yellow....
Wanted to PX for an Evo 8
sorry to hear you still have the car. I throught someone would have torn your arm off as its such a nice car.
Lets Keep in touch and see how we both go.
No problem with you poping over this weekend but if its ping down i will have to wash/dry etc.So lets see what the weathers doing
Thanks all for the PM's.
I agree the prices are all over the place but nice ones will always fetch good money. There are a few doing the rounds a bit cheeper but most have some sort of bad history.
Open to offers ;)
Just back from Germany again and this time im back for good as ive finished up the contract out there.
Hope ive got back to all the PM'S.
The car is still for sale as ive not been able to set up viewings as ive been out of the country.
Look forward to hearing from the PM'S
Is the car still for sale??? :)
Sorry for delay everyone but only just returned to work after xmas. All PM's replied too
Email regarding possible part ex, ;)
Hi Gav, sorry mate wanted something a bit newer.
Nice car you have
Exactly the car I want down to a tee, Will have cash by 20th next month due to house sale next week. If the car is still for sale then please let me know.
Lovely car mate. What did you use to get it looking so brilliant? What wax? Thanks
Thanks for you comment.
Turtle Wax Black Magic and it comes up a treat.
I do polish every month and i know there are some better products out there which last a long time.
is the car still for sale mate
Yes car still for sale :)
bloody hell karl,you still got it. :eek:
Yes mate still got it and enjoying every moment with it.
Loads of interest from a mixed bag of people (They range from proper people asking correct questions to total w**kers who just waste your time).
Still got my heart set on a 9 but with the 10 just around the corner would it be a good move?
Still thats life. Ive had the same when ive sold Cosworths etc.
Keep me informed on when the next meet/run out is as i would like to pop down to catch up with you.
Talk to you soon
will do karl,all the best ;)

Lovely looking car mate, just out of interest what exhaust have you put on it?
Thanks for the comments.

NIce sound but not too noisy.
Time to review the price again me thinks.

Tracker and Cat 1 alarm/imm.
Yes garaged overnight.
