2003 Silver Evo 8 - 343BHP ｣8500
Below is the original ad that i bought the evo from back in September 2016.
I bought this off a very close friend of mine who had spent a long time looking before he bought this particular car. He bought it from an elderly gentleman who was the original owner up until April 2012. He then owned it up until November 14 which is when I purchased this superb car.There are a few sensible mods which I will note as well as some important service milestones.
Full HKS exhaust (inc decat ) original cat included
Full HKS hard pipe kit (original air box included
Uprated high pressure fuel pump
Bilstein struts all round with eibach springs ( approx 12mm drop)
Adjustable boost via intercooler switch,low boost 1bar,high boost 1.6bar
BHP 350-360 with matching torque.
Mapping was done to run on v,power.
I've had a lot of cars and this is qickest,it pulls like an absolute train in every gear.
All work was carried out by MG Auto Motorsport in Derbyshire who also did the remapping to go with the upgrades.This work was carried out in January 2014 at 54842 miles.
Clutch and flywheel (Exedy) fitted January 2012 at 50805
AYC pump rebuild carried out in January 2012 at 50805
Cambelt,balance tensioners and auxiliary belt done in January 2014 at 54842 miles
All four tyres are matching bridgestones and are barely worn
Discs and pads are excellent
I have all paperwork to prove work carried out and there is also full service record (18 stamps in book) to prove service work. All previous MOT's are current with a complete book pack and also the original bill of sale. I also have the showroom brochure!!
Being the FQ model it also benefits from:
6 speed box
Blue black recaro seats
Full electric pack
This really is an exceptional example that drives and feels as new,the recaro seats still feel like new and they look like new as they have had covers on from new I believe,
Outstanding inside and out,and puts a smile on your face everytime (especially in high boost)! It also benefits from being in the low road tax bracket! HPI clear.
To be honest I'm only selling as I have a house project on the go,although I've nearly talked myself out of selling during writing this advert!!!!
There is also a Thacham cat 1 alarm and immobiliser with a antihijac system fitted.
I have both sets of keys
If your interested give me a ring to arrange a viewing(no time wasters please)
As per the above, i started my search for a standard, well looked after evo to continue to do some sensible, tasteful mods too and look after and enjoy.
I bought the car on 63687 Miles, the car has just gone over 70K
Since then i have fitted the following bits:

From this date i then had the car stored in the garage while i was able to remove bits to assess the damage & repair

The car is being used so the miles will go up.
As the car stands now the bits that need doing are: rear bumper needs respraying, the quarter has ripples and bits of paint flaked, the boot mark, dent in the pillar above drivers door, slight rust bubble around rear door arch
Mechanically wise is a sound car, never missed a beat, well serviced, lovely and smooth to drive.
