Mitsubishi Evolution IX GSR

I am looking to sell my pride and joy due to a new job and longer commute in recent months.

One of only 5 White Top Spec GSR’s in the country!

The car is stunning in frozen white with unmarked interior, currently on 67k with FSH and is not in use so will not increase.
I have owned the car since January 2012 and bought this off a Major in the UN who imported her at the start of 2009.
The car was completely standard when I bought it and I have ensured that only the best tuner/garage have looked after it.
First thing I did was book in with Xtreme UK for new belts and tensioners, this was for my own piece of mind as I had searched for 6 months to find the right car.

Simon Norton (SBN1979 on MLR) from Norton tuning solutions has upgraded to stage 1 fitting the following:
Apexi Induction Kit
Walbro 255 fuel pump
HKS high flow exhaust
Magnex de-cat
RC1000 injectors

The car has been mapped at 400/400 annually by Simon to ensure running perfectly.

The new power figure had placed strain on the standard clutch so I had the uprated Exedy clutch fitted by Chris @ C1-R along with a Fidanza fly wheel in 2013.

The exterior of the car is standard for the IX which I honestly believe Mitsubishi got right, the carbon on the spoiler is in perfect condition. The only blemish is a tiny pin dent on the passenger wing.
The interior is in stunning condition with the only addition being a Pioneer Double Din head unit, with sat nav USB and SD functionality.
I have just sent the car to Chris @ C1-R for a full health check as I want the new owner to have peace of mind and trouble free motoring.
C1-R fitted new ACT Clutch & flywheel alongside starter motor, battery, discs, pads and bushes. The car had a 4 wheel alignment and now needs for nothing. Whilst it was there the AYC pump was stripped and sent to Harry Hockley for a full refurb. The bill for all of this was 2.5k which I was happy to pay as I know when I sell the car it will be perfect for the new owner, as it was for me 4 years ago!

I have always opted for the best tyres and shod with Bridgestone Potenza, these were advised as best road tyre as I have never taken on a track.
The car has never been smoked in and looks like new on the inside. The alloys could do with a refurb to make mint.

The car has had a stage with 3 detail and polish end of December with a local detailer, something I have had completed quarterly during my ownership.

The only downside I’ve experienced was down to human fault, reversing into a lamppost outside my house and cracking the rear light. I had a new set of rear lights and full bumper re-spray to get back to the standard I wanted.

I have loved every minute of ownership and will regret selling, but I can’t justify having it as just a weekend car.

I already have the daily replacement (Audi S3 Sportback) so not looking for px

£14,000 takes this wonderful machine to a new home, please don't contact me with silly offers as a blunt reply could possibly offend!?!

Please feel free to call me on 07958 007771 if you would like any further info, Simon & Chris have also offered to take calls if anybody would like to speak to then about the car.

The car is based in Coventry, Warwickshire and is available for viewings at weekends.

I'd say the school boy error is going into detail what security is fitted to the car on a public forum..
I haven't mentioned which trackers are fitted!?! I've never had a problem in 4 years of of owning her, I want the next owner to have the same........
