Hi folks,

Always been a lover of the road going rally cars.

I currently own a 1998 BMW M3 Evo, and now after 2 years of ownership I fancy something abit more extreme.

I have always loved Escort Cosworths and having Fords and Escorts before the M3 kinda leaves me with a soft spot for them. However I can't justify the 15-20k asking price for what esencially is a museium peice. So time to get real, im looking at around 16k on a Evo6, not to keen on the 7s, or 8s.

My question is, there seem to be so many different models about on the auto trader, i.e/ ralliart, TME, RS, GSR etc...

Im not to hot on Evos (yet) so I would apprecaite some guidance and the different models, obv, I know the TME is the top, but whats below it a GSR, what also makes the TME so special, is it the Titanium turbo or are there other differences.

What are the running and realiabilty costs of an Evo 6 like, bearing in mind my last service on my M3 cam to just under 700 quid! Ive not had much experience with turbocharged cars, but from all the stories (mainly cosworth owners) and kind lead to believe they all want to self distruct and blow the engines to bits.

Whats the ave. rebuild cost on a Ev6, and can anyone suggest any good places to get work done, i.e servicing, exhausts, remaps, rolling roads etc.....

Thats it, blimey what I load of questions :rolleyes:

Thanks for your time.

Matt

thats close enough to buy my VI (which just happens to be for sale :D ) after you have decided what to go for....

Think 'Madgerald' who I sold my old IV to is from Surry.... But I may be wrong..

Bloody hell - hello Matt!

can't believe it's been 2 Years already since you bought the M3!!!

You may remember i sold my M3 after 6 months to buy an Evo VI......... out of the two it's a really hard choice to be honest!
