8RS at Motorhub in Keithley

Has anyone been to see this car? I see they have a pretty bad rep but looks like just what I want.

Seems you're already aware of the bad reputation they have. Personally would stay well away due to this, but if it seems what you want and there are no more on the market, go and have a look, do all of the relevant checks before hand inspect the car thoroughly and be very wary. Personally would stay away though not heard one good word about them.

I'm picking my 8MR up from them this week, i knew the reputation but have done as many checks as i can on the car and it seems ok. Don't expect any customer service from them, they seem like they dont want to sell the cars. But if the car is what you want then do your own checks and it may just be a good one.

Hi Steve
Could I ask a favour and get you to take a look at it for me? I'm down in Sussex and it's a hell of a trip if it's rubbish!
Keen to verify milage, make sure it's a proper RS and get a steer on its condition.
Thanks
I owe you a beer!

I will take a look no problem, i'm a newbie to evos but will do my best, i guess a shot of the vin plate would confirm if it's a real RS?

I got my evo 8 from them over 8 years ago...in that time and 50,000 miles it's had a clutch and wheel bearing fail and that's it. Judge the car on its merits mate, they are not all bad , get them from auctions etc just like every other trader on here. But yes there rep is not great.

If i get the vin number you can get a Jap hpi report like i did for mine, allows you to see the auction sheet from when it was sold.

Hi Steve
They said they didn't buy it an auction but privately in Japan.
Be good just to get an opinion on it.
Thanks

Well i went to collect my MR from motorhub today and i'm completely gutted, took a test drive and the clutch was slipping , and the turbo impeller wheel actually came off! So safe to say i rejected the car and got my deposit back, stay away is my advice.
