Genuine UK Ralliart model No.289 (imported new by Mitsubishi/Colt Car Company)
First registered from new in the UK in December 1999
51k miles (odometer/speedo converted from new to read in miles not km)
Full service history (All main dealer or specialist)
MOT till April 2012
Tax till April 2012 (only £215 a year)
Master key & spare immobiliser/fob present

Regrettably time has come to be a bit more sensible and start saving for my next house so having to part with a few of lifes luxurys for the time being. Ideally looking to get a cheaper diesel so will consider a part ex + cash, feel free to get in touch with any offers.

I've owned it since July 2010 and I spent 2-3 months looking for the perfect example and it was worth the wait as I eventually came across this one (the previous owner had it for 4 years and in that time only covered 12k miles). The car has covered just under 51k miles but this will creep up slightly as I am still using it. The car only really gets used at weekends as I don't need it to get to and from work. The car is HPI/data clear as I had this done when I bought it and I could dig this out for the new owner (or feel free to run your own check).

It was standard when I bought it and I have spent a fair bit of time and money subtly and tastefully modifying it to exactly how I want it (I have only ever modified/upgraded parts that I felt it needed to improve the car and not just bolted on parts for the sake of it like some). It has also had no expense spared keeping it maintained to the highest standard possible, since I have owned it Extreme Motorsport in Whitburn (Evo specialist) has done all the work on it and know myself and the car well. I'm sure they would be happy to vouch for it's condition mechanically and bodywork wise without hesitation. All receipts for uprated parts and servicing are present.

The car really is in great condition and if your interested then rather than taking my word for it please come and see the car before making up your mind. I am a part time detailer and the car has had a full paint correction and the interior was stripped out and shampoo'd/wet vac'd when I fitted the new seats. The car is washed/waxed and maintained to a high level and I will make sure it is fully detailed before the new owner picks it up aswell.

Bad Bits
Lower splitter on the front bumper could do with a respray as it's a bit flat and has a few stone chips (only noticable when very close up). There is also a small scuff next to the offside foglight on the front bumper. The 'Evolution VI' sticker on the boot has faded and could do with being replaced. Also please note the car with come with a Kenwood headunit and not the Alpine unit shown in the pics.

Any other questions then please feel free to ask. Car is available to view preferably at the weekends (give you a chance to see it in the daylight aswell) but can be seen in the evenings during the week (or I am off from the 23rd December for 2 weeks so anytime then).

ah very true Mike forgot about you travelling to the far corners of Scotland about every weekend when your away diving lol !

you need to use the runners from the 6 seats and theres a bit of modifying needed (elongating the holes and cutting off a couple of brackets and upstands), theres a few threads on here about it mate

I would buy this car in a heart beat if i could get rid of the 9!
cheers mate praise indeed as thats one stunning 9 you've got !

don't think i could ever get another 6 again in the future as i'll always compare it to this one so i reckon it will be an 8 or 9 next for me a few years down the road

Sorry to go off OP topic but how much would you want to for your IX?

I am in a few minds on what to do and want to cover all the options available to me. One of them is to sell my VI and buy a mint high powered VIII or IX another is to get another VI (the one in this thread would be perfect) with few mods and create my own forged long rod track monster. I would go for a straight swap with someone or just sell my VI and get a white one as I'm feeling like a change of color too :handsup: just so many options to consider.

narrowed down my search for a new car to either an Audi A4 (saloon or avant) TDi or a Golf (Mk4 or Mk5) TDi

as i've mentioned the above is 'ideal' but will still consider any other part ex offers but must be including cash my way in any deal :smthumbup
