Nah mate ya wrong. Black is the one because it's the rarest, followed by silver of course, then last but not least, the NON stripe version red TME, the holy grail, EVERYBODY wants that!!!!! :lol:

Lol rare, good luck with that one :shake:
If this database is to be believed and not loaded with extra fake red TME's. Then the rarest is an RS in RED. Only one was built.

How can the database be loaded with extra fake red TMEs..
Simply fill in any gaps in the sequence of chassis numbers, or add to the end of the list.

The OP has been asked on his previous thread as to how he got the data. He never responded or challenged me. The only definitive information we have is from Mitsubishi's archive and the information published in Evo article's. I am not saying the OP is wrong. He is just not providing any provinance.

Don't take things on face value. :smthumbup

The guy that put this together - over 18 months of work - for the benefit of this community, deserves some thanks and applause. There will always be data that can't be irrefutably confirmed.

Even if Mitsubishi put out production numbers, how do you actually confirm all their data is 100% accurate and free of errors.

Some long time members here who bag this guys efforts and the discussion around it, should check their gold card rights. There is also a deafening silence from some previous commentators.

It's a robust discussion had by people who are interested in these things.

And finally - black really is the new red!

Mr Ralliart explained how he spent many hours in the Mitsubishi archive with Mitsubishi's help and blessing. He was ridiculed on his thread. And frankly took a mauling. But someone rocks up with some data with no provinance..... He's a hero.:wallbang:

Yes. People who were very vocal are now silent. The same can be said of the OP. He has explained how difficult and time consuming pulling the data together was. But is silent about it's origins.

As you say data from any manufacturer can and probably will have its errors/limitations. As I explained in the previous thread. A manufacturer will block out a range of chassis numbers for a particular model and colour. Many blocks then make up the production run for that model for that week. This information is then used to put together the parts catalogues for the garages and parts dealers. But part of the production run could be cancelled due to a parts shortage. The catalogue will not be changed as phantom chassis numbers will not stop the catalogue identifying parts for a chassis that was built.

So the question of province is important. Was this data pulled from a parts database? If so it may not be representative of what actually left the factory.

I agree on provenance and the work by other members eg Mr Rallart. Even if every owner confirmed that their car was on this new database, how would you confirm they're telling the truth.

It's still good to have people interested enough to do all this. Also it will be interesting to see what prices do across the Maks and various compute. No wallbang required.

It is good that people are willing to pull this data together. I do it regularly for my work. It becomes a powerful tool. You just have to remember it's limitations. This database looks to be an excellent tool to confirm your chassis build. I am just not convinced you can use it to prove production numbers.

My head is now hurting. Too much wallbang. :lol::lol::lol:

Hello I am the creator of this list. There is one significant difference. All previous discussions were just a theory, this file is based on data of six different databases and not in discussions and theories. It is more complete And confirmed by several TME dealers and individuals so far. difficult to change
So what is the origin of the data? Mitsubishi production data, parts databases or something else?

When I bought my first TME I was listening and I thought the total output is 2500 (500 cars in each color). This is a Myth. Each month discovering new differences among these cars. So I have been working over two and a half years to find all the differences, how different they exist and a year and a half for how much they have been built. So this year I ended up on this list and I think I know a lot for these cars And the differences between them And for many other things which I can not write on the list. For European models (JMYSNCP9AYU00xxxx) the information comes from other databases and Mitsubishi database, for Japanese models (CP9A-020xxxx) It's impossible for me to cross into Mitsubishi databases. There is no case to exist vin number without an existing car (Discussions that are made around this topic It's probably made by people who do not like the specifics ...) Has never managed to collect all this information together and For the first time in 20 years, we have an Integrated list of information about our favorite TME. It is a great tool for Quick Search
I don't think anyone is disputing the time and effort you have devoted to this. I know pulling data together into a coherent database can be a labour of love.

So far everyone who has posted up has found your database to be accurate. So it looks to be a good tool to verify your chassis build. But unless every TME owner, past and present, checks their chassis details we cannot verify that every entry signifies a chassis that left the factory. That is an impossible task.

The only route left is provinance. What database's have you used? Are they direct from Mitsubishi? Are they based of factory output?
