Driving: It seemed to pull better than the lower mileage Evo 5's we've bought before. Once the turbo came in, it pulled very willingly! Clutch has probably already been replaced, as on Evos it can wear out fairly quickly. This one feels as if there's plenty of life left in it yet too. I didn't explore the handling much as the limits are so high, it's unlikely to slide at anything but insane corner entry speeds.. Brakes pulled up with no drama at all. No signs of warped discs,or anything like that. In fact, it drove like a new and tight example with no faults noticed at all. Even a short trip around the block served to prove this is a helluva fun car to drive. Feels so polished and precise!!
The ashtray shows no use since new, although there is a minor smell of tobacco inside - This should come out with valetting. We will put some charcoal inside to absorb the smell dueing shipping. Inteior is in good condition with no faults to report at all. The boot looks as if it's not carried much luggage in it's life. Auction grade is 4.0 (Auction sheet is available).
There are some very minor small scratches to 2 of the wheels (Pics available of these. The panels are all straight and show this car's been well cared for.
There are minor scratches on some of the bodywork, some of which have been repainted. The bonnet has a small stone chip and the vent has paint peeling from it - which is again usual on most Evo CP9A's. On the o/s/f bumper corner, o/s/f wing, o/s/r door and boot lid there's some minor scratches too. We've taken a picture of each to show. These are too small to require repair, but discribed for the purpose of giving a complete report.
The front bumper is notably free of stone chips too - which helps confirm this car's not been driven hard at all. Note that the callipers are fading in colour due to heat - this is common on all Evos from Version 5 onwards (Previous models didn't have Brembo brakes as std).
