Well after 8 years of owning GTR's i decided to get something different. Sold the R34 and bought this. An Evo 8 MR. Subtle mods running 400/400 map. Something i can take out and enjoy more without worrying about something happening to it!. First major change will be the red wheels. Gonna get them powder coated dark bronze.

I do like a grey MR but what were they thinking with the wheels! They look a bit wide for the car too.

Be a good idea to get underneath regularly with some ACF50 too as Evo’s like the tin worm!

have you had that car on the ramp? its not a dig, but the front crash bar looks very rusty

evos are very very prone to rust

?

MRs are great cars (as all evos are tbh)

more concerned than anything else, its not a dig

sure, enjoy your new purchase.
Yeh the crash bar is annoying me ill get bodyshop to do it when they paint the front bumper. I dont mind the wheels its just the colour! Ill get them painted first see how they look. Its hard getting nice wheels 18" for evos that look good cos u cant really run a low offset cos they poke out too much.

Damn didn't even know you had your 34 for sale. What made you sell?
Just felt like a good time to sell. As i dont have a company car anymore and if the wife is out in her car meant i had to use the skyline. Plus i like tinkering with cars and doing things and just felt that i couldn't do that with the R34 without devaluing it or spending a fortune on it. It was for sale on here but lasted about an hour and the buyer wanted me to delete the thread.

Totally get it for the evo

they are a great car

the 34 was easily a £90k car

assume the buyer will resell it and therefore didn’t want the original for sale ad being about

enjoy your new toy

Love the colour of it-I would probably go with black for the wheels though.
Never had an Evo but have had 3 Scobs-So much fun on the B roads

you would have got alot more $ if you changed the wheels to volk etc

although TBH if you shipped it back to japan (kinda easy to do) would have been top $

i think the 34 prices and any JDM has gone nuts

just look at the DC2 price from last week, or the R33 v spec that went for over 5m yen

someone will make some % on it and thats not an issue, but you could have got alot more :)

evos are very cool
