Hi all,

I can see that Roy have told you about his car
and as he say, there are more to come...

Altough our website is in Swedish only
(coming shortly in two other languages),
have a look.

Cars like that in Sweden, the country of real socialism (like Finland)?? I am completely surprised!! I know that in Finland you can't register an Evo for road use and I thought that would be the same in Sweden and Roy's car was a demo/trackcar! How do you register these cars? What about emissions? And insurance? I'm asking cause I'm having problems with registering my car in Germany... I'm ready to pay if you can help me with these things. Then another thing: How much would an engine rebuilt like Roy's cost including a Motec ECU? I know I'm in Germany, but if I can't find anyone here, I could drive the car up one weekend and pick it up when it's ready. Just reply to my hotmail which is in the profile.

Why dont you ask Ralliart Germany? They can probably do a lot of stuff to it.
I am interested as well, but I dont want too much lag. I have a TME which spools up really nice, just lacking boost. Prospeed faxed me their dyno charts for a moteced Evo 6. These show 400 Nm or torque at 3500 rpms, 477 Nm of torque at 4500 rpms and a max power of 358 - 360 bhp at 5500 rpms. With the standard turbo obviously. Thing is it's so far away. But they evoked the possibility of coming down here to install it. Still waiting for a quote though

Sweden and Finland, although geographically close, are not the same regarding cars. Sweden is basically the same as other EU countries like France and Germany or Italy, Finland has been granted an exception from the European Parliament to maintain their car import tax (103%, yes, over twice the price). This is why car prices are so high there. However, it is very good for people living in France or Germany to buy it tax free there because the tax free price is lower to make up for the tax. You can save thousands of DMs if you buy a new M3 there instead of Germany for example. Not that you would want to buy an M3, that was just an example of a car you can actually buy there.
Finland will have to get rid of these taxes over a certain period of time (I think something like 5 years, not sure).

No I dont speak Finnish. I dont think you could learn it unless you grow up with it. But I go there a lot to see friends. What did the last sentence mean? Saatanan!

It meant: Or did your friend teach you how to swear? Tell me when you're going to be in Finland the next time, maybe I'm there too.
