Hi there,

In the process of trying to find a nice evo 8 to buy, only going to keep for around a year so would prefer modded one rather than standard unless it was a good car for good money, i have £11500 max to spend and no real preference in colour.

Was just wondered what bad bits to look out for when buying one and what good bits there are?

I know they need servicing every 4-5k, and clutches are prone to go but other than that im clueless!

Any help or guidence would be appreciated

Thanks!

Apart from the standard dump valve possibly giving you stalling issues, and the AYC pump being fairly unreliable (which is true for all evos) the VIII+ is fairly reliable, no common issues. Download the buyer's guide and have a read.

Welcome along :smthumbup

As Aidy has said above, the buyers guide is a great place to start. The VIII is a great car, I loved mine and had very few issues for the 6 years that I had it.
