    DESCRIPTION: As below


    With heavy heart I now offer up for sale my much cherished Legnum VR4, It is time for me to move on and the call of the Evolution is just too strong. It is obviously a natural progression for me in my history of Mitsubishi ownership. Here for sale is ‘Ellie’ my Type S VR4. Purchased by me in November 2008 It is a cold spec model: Heated Mirrors, heated windscreen, larger alternator etc. In two and a half years I have added, upgraded and serviced this car to a high standard. There is just so much info on this car I have probably missed out quite a bit. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Originally this car would have been the two tone silver, with skirts and front valance being in the Thurston Grey, somewhere along the line I Imagine the Japanese owner has changed these to the A71 Hamilton Silver. This has the moonroof and original roof rails.

    The car will come with original handbook and nearly 8k worth of receipts for upgrades and servicing. With history of care and a sound mechanical package this car will give years and years of hassle free motoring. Please see below entire list of servicing and upgrades.

    Anybody watching this - When Mike first got his VR-4, he bought it to me for a once-over and to do a full fluid change. It was incredibly clean - The bolts in the engine bay still had their shiny nickel plating on the heads!

    And Mike's been equally diligent with it since ownership. It's a bloody good car and the buyer will be pleased.

    Just a point, the red fleck interior was only available on VR-4's from August 1998 to April 2000. After that they changed to the silver interior. If the car they were removed from was on an 02 plate then it would have been sitting around for a few years before being sold!
    If I'm replying to your thread and helping you out, it is because I like you and want to help out your VR-4 ownership. No other reason

    Kind of surprising this thread Mike, I initially thought that I had perhaps stumbled onto a similar thread where you were I think selling a VR-4 on behalf of a friend.

    Great car and from what I've seen on this forum you've had some great experiences with it but completely understand the allure of the Evo.

    I am sure that you'll miss the sound of the V6 though

    evos are quick, grippy, tunable, common, noisey, harsh...... But great fun

    Datsuns are quick, grippy, tunable, less common, quieter, less harsh, & even more fun
