You've pretty much got the pick of the second hand range with 20K with the exception of the IX and the VIII MR FQ400. Really depends what you want to do once you buy it ie are you going to buy the car and keep it as it is (nice idea but i don't know anyone who has done this) or are you wanting to go down the modification stage, in that case you'd be best to leave yourself some cash aside to play with.

Take a look in the cars for sale section on here and you'll get a good idea what you'll get for your money, it's also one of the better places to shop for Evo's as there's a fair chance they've been well cared for, and if there's any known scrappers they'll soon get pointed out.

Cheers, Tim.

cheers tim,

thats pretty much the reson i joined the forum cos no doubt someone will know the history of a car if i buy it from here.

think id probably do some tasteful mods to it, not spend big big bucks on it............................ yet :)

I'm in the same boat mate, joined the forum and got a great car from it, already has quite a lot of mods done (AVCR, remap, new exhaust system, suspension, wheels and much more) so thought that'll do me nicely. I'm buying a few bits and bobs but really it's only aesthetics that i'm changing at the minute, it's my first performance car and is running nearly 400bhp so i've no need to think about tuning the engine or anything like that yet - my last car was a 130bhp diesel :crackup:

You're unlikely to get any agreement on here about which is the 'best' Evo to go for as everyone usually thinks their generation of Evo is the best.

My advice would be to get an VIII MR 320 (or 340 if you're desperate for a leather interior). Can be modded very easily to 400bhp if that's what floats your boat and is a more forgiving ride than earlier models.

How many minutes before someone else posts saying 'buy a mint TME and spend the change on mods' :D
