12k mile Evo 6

So this kind of happened.....

A couple of people on here know about this but here goes......


I spotted in the 'Cars for sale' section, a 12k mile Evo6, it had me intrigued.
I left it alone, but kept finding myself re-reading the ad and wondering how good it is, and would it be a good call to buy it and replace ours.

Lots of phone calls, texts, emails and a lot of patience later, we agreed to view the car.

We did the 8hour round trip in our Evo... Set off at 6.30am and arrived at around 11.30am to be greeted to the car out on the drive waiting for us.

First thing I noticed was a few small storage dents, but this is no big deal and easily sorted.
Naunton (the owner) came out to introduce himself and the car, very nice guy.

So then, the interior is literally like brand new, ours is good at only 33k miles but this is like showroom.

The engine bay is again really really good, just in need of a detail and some manifold heat shields & bolts.

The underside is good, not 100% perfect but very good, especially as it is not undersealed.

The only bit that 'put us off' was the bodywork, the front bumper needs re-painting, along with the bonnet, and to do this nicely it means blowing in the front wings. It also has 8 or so small dents which all need pulling out, and it needs a professional mop as its very swirly.

Then looked through all the paperwork history, very very nice paperwork history.

Took the car for a drive, first car I have driven with a twin plate clutch which I dare say will take some getting used to.
Drives very nice, just as you would expect.

After the test drive we spoke about price, I was a little lower than his lowest and after some thought and some chatting we have agreed a price and the car has now been paid for.

It will arrive with us next Wednesday, and I will then begin bringing it right back up to standard.

A few pics here, but they really don't do it justice at all.
These are the pics I was sent of the car before viewing, I didn't take any whilst viewing.
