Hi guys, my name is Nick! Don't own an evo yet but looking to get one within a year!
Been reading the forum for ages but finally decided to officially join.

Cheers

Hello, mate

What type of Evo are you planning?

Hi Nick.
It's not a cheap car to run. So make sure you look into the running costs. But I couldn't think of a better car to own.

Iím also looking at getting my first evo. What do you think (a rough guess) the costs would be if youíre doing 10000 miles a year in one, but 75% of that is motorway miles? Would reliability become an issue? It would mostly be driven sensibly

There is a really good calculator on here. Not good at links, hope this works. https://www.lancerregister.com/mlr_r...calculator.php

Iím running an Evo x fq330 sst remapped to 400 bhp. On a steady motorway drive Iím lucky if I can get more than 26mpg.

In general all the evos are pretty reliable. Just as long as they are well looked after.

There are a few things to look out for on the different models. So make sure you do your research.

Seems the biggest problem being the ayc pump which mine is currently in for. Wonít be seeing any change from £2000.00
