Hi guys,
Im new to this,this will be my first evo. I currently living on a small Island called Saint Helena.
I need some advise on buying my first evo, after alot of reading i've decided it'll be better to get a grey import as the salt on the roads in the uk is a worry for me(RUST).
I've found this yellow evo 5 for sale at a good price but it looks like its been moded alot.....would this be a good car to buy?
Please Advise

It does look very nice, but I suppose it depends on the Import costs and duty etc.

The car is 7k itself.

It looks like a lot of car for the money. AsCorky says, it depends if thats the price imported... if not it depends how much to import to you. It's worth asking a few questions.:smthumbup

Thanks for the reply's guys:smthumbup

All together, at my door the cars going to cost around 9half grand.
It's first ship to Durban South Africa, then on a car carrier to Cape Town then on our Royal Mail ship to the Island.
So i really want something nice cuz going through all this trouble is a mission.

Theres another car on the same site Evo 8Mr but it seems to good to be true.
Please advise on this one as well.http://www.tradecarview.com/used_car/japan%20car/mitsubishi/lancer+evolution+viii+mr/407597/
