Unleaded - wrong fuel for an Evo, 97 ron Super Unleaded as a minimum.

£6,500 for a IV? That's a tad much.

the IV RS is one of the best Evos ever made! very sweet to drive. I think 6000 is a good price for a good example.

I had one like that..in Gunmetal with more mods..Paid more than that for it but that was a few years ago when it was younger! When I came to sell it a year or so ago I was lucky to get £2000 for it so I wouldn't pay what they're asking!

I agree with all the above about the price being high .. but not by as much as they say ...

If you want a 4 rs .. and arent thinking about buying it to sell it on .. then its worth 5k+ from a dealer ... (gonna get slated I know .. but regardless .. Its still worth more than peeps suggest .. its the climate that makes people think its worth less ... look at all the comments on the fellas trying to sell their evos on here .. no ones offering proper money.. people realise that there are some bargains to be had out there .. as people are made redundant etc and need to shift their kit to feed themselves and pay the mortgage .. this doesnt mean that E4 rs`s are now worth bugger all ... its down to how quick they need to sell it .. and how much the buyer wants one ... )

Yeah its overpriced ... but ....

For a very very good clean unabused example, expect to pay good money. It's expensive, but so are flawless diamonds, you SHOULD get what you pay for, but until you see it and report back, none of us can really say whether it is actually cheap or expensive IMHO...

Having said that, that's not what you'd say to the dealer LOL
