Ruri blue Evo IX FQ340
Iím going to be moving to a larger house later this year. As a result i will be doubling my mortgage and canít really justify a second car for the foreseeable future.
So as much as i donít want to, i have decided to sell my Evo IX FQ340.
Purchased from a fellow member in May 2015. Has been garaged since being purchased.
Used as a daily driver for the first 18 months of my ownership, as a second car since. Has done 6 track days in the two years iíve owned it.
Ruri Blue 2005 9 FQ340 Ė No. 214
55 plate, lower tax band
Full 3Ē exhaust that includes:
Russ Fellows track friendly (98 dbs at Castle Combe) 3" stainless cat-back
ETS sports cat
JMF modular elbow and downpipe
I still have the original HKS Superdragger, front pipe and elbow that will be included in the sale
3 port boost solenoid
Uprated walbro 255lt fuel pump
Modified standard airbox
All mapping done by Ant at Indigo Gt - made just shy of 397BHP last time it was on the rollers
Ohlins DFV adjustable coilovers Ė brilliant on both road and track (fitted 03/16)
Fast road geometry set up
Standard bilstein shocks with tein lowering springs will also be included in sale
Standard Evo 9 Enkeis repainted in a metallic gunmetal grey Ė excellent condition
Continental Contisportcontact 5 tyres that have only done a couple of thousand miles
Recently professionally refurbished Brembos (Dec 16 by Indigo GT) Ė in mint condition
Girodisc two piece lightweight discs all round
Carbon Lorraine RC5 front pads Ė just run in
Girodisc magic rear pads
Braided lines all round
High temp brake fluid
Rosssport lightweight north south bar fitted
Underside was fully undersealed by me straight after buying the car Ė POR15 products used (Marine clean, metal ready and two coats of gloss black top coat). Is very clean and solid underneath but does have some minor surface rust on the ARB's, jacking points, diff cradle etc.
Ruri blue paint Ė lovely colour and is generally in very good condition. No dents but does have some stone chipping to the front and light swirling from washing.
Carbon front splitter & rear spoiler blade Ė very slight lacquer fade on a small section
Rear fog light removed from bumper and incorporated into rear lights
Smaller front number plate
Rear windows tinted, windscreen has a few stone chips that have been professionally repaired
Engine bay pretty clean but some light surface rust and marks in places
Standard half leather and Alcantara FQ interior Ė wear & slight collapse to drivers bolster
As a whole the interior is in good condition but there are a few minor marks here and there
Binary seat lowering brackets
JVC Cd/MP3 head unit & Clarion speakers
Full service history from new, next service due at 63k miles
All service stamps are by Mitsubishi specialists
MOTíd until 10/17
3mm uprated lash adjusters fitted 09/16
Refurbished AYC pump (Rebuilt by Autotorque) and braided AYC lines fitted by Indigo GT 03/16
All receipts for purchases and work done during my ownership, a folder full of receipts for work done since new
Comes with 2 keys
Factory fitted Cat1 Alarm immobiliser
In general this is a really nice car that is mechanically excellent and has had a lot of money spent keeping it that way. Cosmetically it is very good but not to show standard. If you are looking for a show car that doesnít have a mark on it please donít come and view, youíll be wasting yours and my time.
Itís been washed every couple of weeks during my ownership but i am not a detailer and only polished it for the first time when preparing it for sale. Itís come up very nice but iím sure someone who is into detailing could get rid of the light swirling and make it look better still.
If you are looking for a very nice condition car that has been well looked after, makes good power and handles and brakes really well then this is the car for you. Iíve loved owning it, itís very fast on the road and not much can beat it on track. Itís the best performance car i have owned by a long way.
Any inspection is welcome.
Located Nr Bridgwater in Somerset.

Five owners plus me.
I'll take some pics of the underside at the weekend as will need to get it up on axle stands.
I tried getting some whilst it was on the drive but couldn't get any that were any good.

Cracking example and nice spec. I'd be tempted if I could sell my 8 fast enough, in truth.
If you don't mind me removing the Ohlins, all the go faster bits and returning it to stock power we have a deal
Pic update as promised.
Worst of the corrosion is on the ARB (my next mod was going to be to change this for a superpro one), diff hanger, fuel tank heat shield, prop and hubs but is all light surface rust and non structural.
Some very light spots elsewhere on the underside but in general as you can see it is very clean.
