Hope you aren't paying MR money for it? :lol:

Looks like a nice car but are you sure the seller is as honest, genuine and trustworthy as you mentioned or maybe he just doesn't know that much about Evo's?

That car is not a FQ-340 as that would mean it's a MR which looking at the non alloy roof it isn't. It looks like a non MR FQ 300/330 or even a JDM 8 GSR with a UK instrument cluster fitted as it is 6 speed.

The mileage wouldn't read 65kmiles (110kilometers) as all FQ Evo's are UK converted cars so kilometers wouldn't even come in to it.

The steering wheel is deffo not from an Evo 9 or even a 8 MR as it's silver.

The last pic show's that at the time of the picture the car had/has AYC/ACD issues because all 3 lights are lit up on the dash.

The chassis number along with a few other thing are unique on the 8 MR model so do some research. :smthumbup

Why would you change evo 8 340 seats to 9 340 seats, the difference isn't worth changing, unless it never had 8 340 seats to begin with. As said above, I'd investigate a little more before purchase.

Looks amazing.

But... 420bhp? Pretty risky unless it has low torque.

I am in love with the colour though.

I wouldn't worry what "it is". More just that you were aware what it was, but if the current condition and spec ticks your boxes you've nothing to worry about. Scrubs up well!
